If stated plans are any indication, Shroud of the Avatar
is in for a busy first few months of the new year. In a recent newsletter
, the team recapped the "flexible" schedule for the game's early 2015 updates.
January's Release 14 will expand zone connections, add in the Shardfall biome, begin testing on a new version of Unity, and add things like player banks, an encumbrance system, and in-game pledge rewards. February's Release 15 has its eye on several new mainland areas including the Necropolis, more magic spells, housing fees, dyeable outfits, teachable emotes, and crafting skills. Finally, March's Release 16 is going to add Steam achievements, a cover system in combat, and localization.
The team also released one of the backer rewards, a cover version of the classic Ultima
Stones theme by the band The Space Bards, and you can listen to it after the break!
