It was the best of times for SOE
and it was the worst of times. It was the season of glorious patches and of disappointing delays. It was also May 1st, in case you haven't checked your calendar.
SOE delivered an update
beta today, including claim feedback, chat improvements, new props, and the ability to teleport to other claims from the gallery view. The studio also launched its first competition
, this one to create visually stunning landmarks for the game's environment. The competition will conclude on May 7th.
Unfortunately, international players of SOE's library looking to partake in Player Studio goodness will have to wait a while longer
: "Initially, we hoped to expand Player Studio to Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom on or before May 1st, but given the intricacy of the program and our recent launch of the new All Access Membership plan, we have decided to roll out international support for Player Studio at the end of May."
