Closed Beta Update & Tower of V’Drazzig Release
It has been two weeks since Closed Beta testing has begun. We’ve made great strides in correcting several bugs within the base game engine and are progressing towards additional content and feature releases. The first of many will be the long awaited re-imagining of the dungeon, Tower of V’Drazzig.
We are currently developing a buff & poison system. Also at this stage of development, understanding where to go to do your next dungeon is difficult to figure out. A central system location is being developed to guide players to their next dungeon, mission or task. Additional quests will be released in June, including “Crypt” & “Heroes”. Lastly, we are testing integrations of the client into several potential partner websites as a distribution method once we go into Open Beta, which will also open up Normal (non-Hardcore) classes.
