Shroud of the Avatar is only a few months away from its all-but-in-name summer launch, and as such each patch from here on out carries with it a heavier weight of responsibility to get the game ready for prime time. Today the team pushed out Release 29, which contains significant adjustments for the future of the game.
“We are also critically appraising our feature set and making sure each and every feature is as it should be for those critical events of Release 32,” Starr Long wrote. “With those thoughts in mind, we looked at a few key aspects of the game related to housing, crafting, and targeting and made some important changes in Release 29. These changes were not easy, nor were they without controversy, but we believe they are changes that need to be made for the long term health of the project.”
The biggest changes include using a targeting reticle to make interaction modal, the sale of lot deeds within player-owned-towns, and the integration of the recipe book to the station interface. Release 29 also includes 40 more scenes, which should make up for the full wipe that the patch requires.
