Funcom's Joel Bylos
posted a producer's letter
today for Anarchy Online
, promising a major patch for the game later this year.
Among other features, Patch 18.7 will include changes to the Martial Artist and the Trader classes and will begin to automate seasonal events. "In the 18.7 branch, we have placed out all seasonal spawns in the game world and we will start testing on the closed beta in the upcoming weeks to ensure the automated system works as intended," Bylos reported.
The "huge" patch will be put on the test server this summer with a release date sometime before Halloween.
