Pathfinder’s early enrollment version six is out today

The sixth build of Pathfinder’s early enrollment phase goes live today, according to the notes on GoblinWorks‘ website. If you missed designer Lee Hammock’s patch preview last week, it’s worth a read-through to get a sense of what’s new in version six. The big feature is the shared vault mechanic, and the devs have also increased escalation difficulty and added milestone feats to each of the game’s four adventuring roles.

There’s more, too, all of it detailed in the patch notes at the link below.

borz777 jon123 dirtyklingon They want a very slow ramp up, stability is pretty important in a sandbox game and a sudden bubble of people new MMO’s tend to get and then lose would throw the economy into chaos.

Let my subscription lapse..paying for to many games in development already.  Will try again later when there is some meat on the bone.

jon123 dirtyklingon How are they going to increase player base. As someone mentioned above, B2P and sub model?  As much as I love the pathfinder universe, I just don’t see it happening.

I completely agree with all you’ve said!

dirtyklingon I haven’t played for the last two alpha releases.  The game mostly takes it’s setting and genre from Pathfinder.  The classes are going to be there(They haven’t put them all in) along with easy multi-classing(Classes are more like guidelines…).  The gameplay mechanics  don’t try to mimic the tabletop, and the character progression is very different as well(Learn skills from trainers that take real time, then when you mean the requirements you can level a class).  Most the class abilities/spells are going to be in but it might take a long time with the small team they have running it.

The best comparison I have for it is Eve online economy, progression and player interaction with more meaningful AI threat and a little less sit back and watch your ship kill things(Movement is a little more traditional than just orbiting something.)  

It is going to be another year to two years before the game is really polished at all, they are doing it on a tiny budget and a plan to slowly increase the player base over years kind of like Eve.

karmamule borghive Everyone I encountered was pretty nice as well. I wanted to add that the combat animations are terrible I mean I thought it was kind of joke at first. Also the graphics of the game are very weak for a modern MMO. I’m no graphic snob because I love Shroud of the Avatar. but PFO needs some work in the animation department. Unfortunately the CEO already commented that they really don’t have the resources at the moment to improve the game graphically.

borghive Agreed.  I’m seeing lots of potential here, but asking us to pay for the game AND pay a monthly subscription fee this early in its development cycle was a bit too much for me personally.  I poked around for my month but will let my subscription lapse until it has cooked a bit longer.  

Having said that, there is a very small committed core of players who are doing lots of cool things, like organizing regularly scheduled in-game tutorial sessions.  That sort of helpful community is such a boon to any game, and a necessity for one like Pathfinder that wants to make socializing an essential aspect of gameplay.

This game has some interesting mechanics but the current version is pretty rough.
