During QuakeCon 2018, Bethesda Game Studios has announced that the next DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfhunter, will become available on PC on August 13th and on Xbox One and Playstation 4 on August 28th. A trailer was released to tease the new werewolf themed content.
Citadel Studios has announced that Legends of Aria, the indie-developed sandbox MMORPG is headed for Steam sometime in October. The game’s servers will be open to founders and backers first, and then one week later, launch on Steam as an Early access game. To prepare for that, the game will have at least one more stress test and several new events.
Citadel Studios has announced that the second closed beta of Legends of Aria will begin on July 12th. The game’s roadmap is due for an update since the last iteration aimed for an open beta phase in June and an early access phase in July.
Closed beta 2 will include hundreds of bug fixes, new features and a massive graphical update for the game’s world. The improved art-style and polished graphics were primarily the work of their artists Austin and Tiffany with some occasional help from everyone else on the team. Watch the reveal of the new graphics in the video below.
Camelot Unchained Delays 4th of July Beta By Weeks Or Days – “The Client Crash Rate Is Too Damn High!”
City-State Entertainment has announced that the beta testing phase for Camelot Unchained that was planned to begin on July 4th will be shortly delayed by “weeks or days”. There is no set date for the upcoming beta as of yet. Some of the reasons given that resulted in their decisions to delay the beta are the new European regulations, the need to lessen the client crash rate and more needed polish to the gameplay.
ArtCraft Entertainment has posted their mid-year checkpoint update for Crowfall which highlights the game’s progress so far in the first half of the year and announces content and dates that will come in the second half of the year and beyond. The post states that it’s clear that “the soft launch is not going to happen by the end of the year” as a result of more needed changes to core systems.
The team anticipates kicking off alpha testing at the end of the summer of 2018. After that, their march towards a beta phase will start.
The Wild West Online Facebook page and Steam page have been updated with a notice that the planned content patch that was supposed to release on June 15th has been delayed. On top of this, the free-to-play version has been postponed by an additional month.
The team behind the game has decided that the patch is not ready yet because “after 3 days of meticulous testing there was way too many bugs, that would alter your overall experience.”
“It was a team decision to postpone patch for up to one month, and make sure that we hit all goals we want with it. We’re very small team at the moment, so while we wanted to have more resources to put on it, we’re going with what we have – what is in line with game’s metrics.”
Citadel Studios is inviting entire guilds to experience the beta version of Legends of Aria. In exchange for reporting bugs and submitting feedback via their guild leaders at least three times, guild members will be able to play the indie-developed sandbox MMORPG for three weeks. Players will also need to keep their guild mates in check since “participants also agree that if one guild member is caught using an exploit after more than 24 hours without reporting it, the entire guild is subject to removal from the test”.
