Like clockwork, the end of the month heralds another patch release for Shroud of the Avatar. “Polish” is the keyword for this update, as the team works to bring the game up to spec for its official launch later this year.
“Release 45 is our first release after reaching the story complete milestone last release,” the team reported. “We are now able to focus on polishing the game experience. This release, we have rebuilt multiple scenes, added more quests, polished the user interface, and continued to balance combat.”
In addition to allowing players to separate chat into multiple windows, the team integrated Discord — at least a rudimentary form of it — into the game for the first time. Portalarium said that it was a close call to get this patch out this month, as the team lost a week of work when internal server software had a “meltdown.”
