Shroud of the Avatar works on replacing placeholder scenes

With the broad outline of the game now completed, Shroud of the Avatar’s team is turning to placeholder locations and revising them with hand-crafted content. This includes the new mountainous region of Crooked Shank, the hilly lands of Middle Downs, and more Viking-inspired clothing for northern NPCs.

“We are focusing the next few releases on building the lower tier scenes near the cities along the paths of Truth and Courage,” Portalarium said. “Most of these scenes have been clones of other scenes and will now be replaced with completely original scenes.”

The team is going to be quite busy this month, not just with August’s Release 45 but also by making appearances at Gamescom, PAX West, and Dragon*Con. The studio is also hiring a web developer to be a part of the team.

Get a look at the making of Middle Downs after the break!

Honestly, I’m starting to have a hard time with how it even looks. To me LotRO looks a lot better and it’s ten plus years old with the engine being even older than that. Why would I want to move over to even more clunkier engine?

Because SotE is more likely to be around in 5 or 10 years time than LotRO?
