As you all know, the patches have been pouring out, so it’s been awhile since we sat down for the news. The team is back from PAX, and we’re really happy with everyone’s response at the show. Players were treated to a crazy challenge dungeon, showing off what the dungeon system is capable of and what we have in store for the near future. Now that we’ve gotten back into the swing of things, the next patch on the 22nd is starting to take shape. The focus has to do with UI redesign, something many have felt the game needs. We have not been deaf to that feedback at all and things are already looking so much better as we move forward with this! Here's a look at the new character selection screen:
Following this patch, we start to look again at the bigger picture, and move forward to another huge overhaul of player progression. We’ll be bringing in some very exciting new directions for it, and it will allow the player to take a far more active role in deciding how their character is built throughout the game. The player experience is very important to us, and it’s an area we know has been in need of the attention for a long while. From here, we continue to build progression and solidify the way the higher tiers of content will fit in. The changes coming will start to move from the frame that is in place now, to a more robust, multiple play-style system. While some may instinctively groan at the idea of having to re-learn things, the overall result ties in beautifully with all the progress the game has made over the first half of the year. We’re very proud of what Edge of Space has become and look very much forward to seeing these new changes in the hands of players. We will be listening closely to the feedback from you all, as we continue to polish the game, and make it feel better to play than ever before.
On the Community side, we are drawing ever closer to our Halloween event, and are excited to see that coming together. With the help of our awesome community team, we look forward to some frightening fun in October. Good times are ahead, and we’re ready to rock this! Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you next time for ArkCo News!
