Cower in fear before Worlds Adrift’s manta rays

    
8

Creatures that might look benign and even pettable in nature are almost invariably turned into player-eating monsters in MMOs. It just comes with the territory. So while you might not fear beetles and manta rays in your daily life, in Worlds Adrift they will definitely trigger your fight-or-flight response.

A new developer diary talks about the game’s first pass at introducing aggressive (attack) behavior in such creatures. Beetles, we are told, will emerge to fight players trying to chop down trees. As for the mantas? “The manta rays, on the other hand, need no excuse to attack players because they are gits,” the devs wrote. “But they are especially enraged by the sound of nearby ship engines. They will chase such ships, latch on and break them apart piece by piece.”

Charming.

Witness the sheer savagery of beetles and manta rays attacking after the break!
