It's really hard not to be all giddy and excited about the introduction of AI to Landmark
; it's quite literally going to be a game-changer. Some might even argue a game-maker! Only one other feature, combat
, comes close to the impact that this system will have on the sandbox. Even then, combat doesn't rival it; it complements it. In truth, it will be an early Christmas present for all those players who've been waiting as patiently as possible for this next step: Monsters are slated to be released into the wild on December 10th
. I am sure I mirror the sentiments of many when I say the Storybricks system
just can't get here soon enough!
Before you get your hopes up too high, know that this first iteration of the AI system does not include the much-anticipated storytelling features that players will have access to on their personal claims. Those will come in time. But that doesn't diminish the magnitude of what is coming in just a few short weeks. The introduction of mobs will truly be the big bump that makes Landmark
an actual MMORPG in the eyes of the world as opposed to "just a building game," an inaccurate description the game's had a hard time shaking. And did I mention, I can't wait?! If you are fairly new to following Landmark
, you may not know what all the excitement is about. Let me share that with you.
