Chronicles of Elyria forecasts mud and snow, takes fans on a run through a mine
Big talk and intriguing ideas continue over at Chronicles of Elyria, where the team is giving players a vision of what the MMO’s weather system might look like as the game progresses through the seasons.
“Now that some new systems are in place to handle the environmental effects in the world, Heat has been providing some visual targets for our Environment team to hit,” the team said. “Keep in mind, that Chronicles of Elyria will have a weather system and seasons that will produce what you see below as you play. Of note, muddy roads and snow banks will affect travel and increase strain on people and vehicles that dare to venture outdoors.”
If you’re looking for something a little more substantial in the delivery department, the devs also posted a video that takes viewers on a tour through the prologue’s Silver Run Mine. The walkthrough comes with developer commentary, which makes it worth watching to hear about the design philosophy and all of the elements that will be used in the greater game.
