Chronicles of Elyria’s online tech is coming together

Chronicles of Elyria is continuing its… interesting method of disseminating development information by posting blogs about its “adventure teams” and their work on the project as if they were in a game of their own.

What we can discern is that the team has hired on a new senior client engineer, is working on different types of player animations (such as falling), is crafting a wardrobe system, and is drawing up a huge list of the flora and fauna of the opening region of the game.

Perhaps the most intriguing bit is how Chronicles of Elyria’s tech foundation is coming together: “Already we’ve got Unreal and SpatialOS running in concert, multiple characters running around and animating, entities persisting after logging off (the way OPCs will), colliding with one another without passing through, and server-side authority of location and other data such as character vitality.”

The team also posted a “brief” 32-minute Q&A video that you can watch below!

LOL
They are supposed to launch Dec of this year and we are supposed to be impressed that it’s mid May and the “have multiple characters running around”? What a joke. Even one of their King level players has called these jokers out recently in an epic rant about their P2W scheme. Post had massive support and the dev basically just said people who play at launch wont ever know or care about how all these nobles got their power. Funny to watch but if I had given these jokers money Id be real worried.

I would feel more confident if the set was a little more together – I know its just a small thing, but seeing the ashes of creation set makes me feel more inclined to back that game :)

Read the article… there is no game to play. They just now have “multiple characters running around and animating”. if your guildie said he is playing CoE he is lying to you.

I don’t care what you feel he is doing. What he is NOT doing is playing this game because it doesn’t exist. Now please go back to fantasy land and leave us alone.
