Short term roadmap 2013
With 1.0.4 going live these minutes, its time to look forward. There has been various info released here and there, so I just wanted to give this quick look into our plans ahead.
There are multiple productions going on right now in different areas. The exact release dates are not frozen yet until we go a little further into development (and after some sleep/vacation).
Some of these are going to be free and additional content is going out as paid expansions. Especially the bigger content expansions as we are putting significant resources into these to expand the game out from the Sin of Damnation campaign.
A totally random order and non-complete list below:
- Coop and new campaign
No surprise as its been talked about a lot. Will add a coop campaign for up to 3 players to play a terminator squad each against the AI. Campaign also playable by a single person.
- New Space Marine chapter
We are not yet ready to announce which, but its in the works and might be a little surprising to people. As soon as we have the first Terminator ready to show, we are announcing what it is. Will come with a small "chapter only" campaign
- Squad/Unit customization
With the new chapter pack above, we are planning to add a squad customizer so you can build , name and field your own Terminators. The exact way this is going to work is still being designed.
- Several new campaign packs
We have a selection of old White Dwarf missions as well as brand new original designed missions/campaigns in the works. These will be released over the next months as fast as we can produce them
German, Italian, Spanish, French and Russian translations of all text is in the early stages
- Level editor
Over the next months we will improve our internal tool chain to be usable by end users. Most likely there will be a series of releases increasing what you can do with the editor, how it integrates with Steam Workshop and upload/download/rating/filtering of content.
- AI and Multiplayer improvements
We want to make the AI harder and more intelligent as well as at the same time improve the multiplayer experience. These are short term top priority for us.
- New rules
Moving forward we are going to add new and original stuff into the mix. We are working on Genestealer variants (NOT hybrids) and other cool stuff that we want to get in to expand Space Hulk in new directions. These things will most likely be integrated parts of the new campaigns.
We are also thankful for a lot of good suggestions in the Suggestions/improvements thread, and are filtering through these to pluck out good ideas or fast to implement ideas.
