Not every MMO patch has to be a field of explorable content through which adventurers romp barefoot and fancy-free. Sometimes the unglamorous work of bug fixes and tech upgrades need to take priority with the dev team.
Such is the case with Istaria (formerly Horizons), which posted a preview of what’s coming for the game. The team says that the early 2015 City Under Siege patch was the big content release of the year, as the devs are moving on to shore up the tech, improve art assets, and polish the content for the rest of the year.
Through these, Istaria players should experience better game performance while saying goodbye to frustrating issues, such as “the monster moonwalk.” The team also has long-term plans to upgrade the title’s client and server technology.
