When you've repeatedly delayed the launch
of the new version of the game, what's there left to do? You know you shouldn't have asked that because now you made the Darkfall
beta go back in hiding. It was just waiting for someone foolish enough to ask that question.
While Darkfall Unholy Wars'
beta was scheduled to begin today, Aventurine
decided to hold back on starting it for the time being. What's the hold-up? According to Producer Tasos Flambouras
, a nasty bug's floating around that can, well, have an adverse affect on gameplay
: "To simply describe the bug in question: It's a persistence bug. Some players, sometimes, will lose all their stuff."
The team is attempting to reproduce and eliminate the bug but said that it will go ahead with the beta after a "few hours" whether or not it's found.
