Behaviour Interactive is counting down the days until the launch of Eternal Crusade. Yes, the game is officially launching on September 23rd for the North American PC market, with a European boxed release and console launch to follow. In the meantime, a Steam post from Senior Producer Nathan Richardsson today explains, the studio is working not just on the launch patch but on the pre-launch patch, which is out today. Well, actually both of them are pre-launch patches:
“While you can say ‘here are the features for launch’, patch #24 is also pre-launch and adds more of everything, balance, performance improvements, bugfixes etc. This work continues post launch in two pipelines. One is working on the regular content updates and general improvements/fixes and the other pipeline, which is now a month in is preparing the monthly/quarterly updates. All free because we love you. (We actually don’t, we just want your money).”
Patch #23 is expected to maintain quick progression and add more wearables, supply drops, the token system, guilds, guild-vs.-guild content, the new world map, and numerous balance and bug fixes. It’ll also see the return of PvE.
