The death and subsequent rebirth of City of Steam
has been an odd thing to watch, but you'll soon be able to actively participate instead of just watching. City of Steam: Arkadia
is launching on December 4th
, just a little more than a week from today, enough time that you might not even get to feel any sorrow at the original version's untimely and unexpected demise.
Of course, you may not have mourned the original version. Rest assured that the relaunch is not meant to simply be the same game with a new subtitle. According to the official announcement, the new version contains a variety of new systems as well as a revamp of both dungeons and game mechanics. Mechanist Games
states that the developers have paid attention to player feedback from the Chinese version and will be releasing a game that should have a much wider appeal. You'll be able to gauge that for yourself very shortly
one way or the other.
