It might not have involved fluttering about on the back of a well-trained ostrich, but Chronicles of Elyria’s jousting minigame did well enough for itself at PAX West. The team chose to focus on jousting as a demo because it was a feature that it could repurpose for the MMO and because the team doesn’t quite have a playable MMO build as of yet.
Massively’s MJ was on hand to interview the team at PAX, digging out a lot of information about this upcoming fantasy MMO. She grilled the devs on the game’s monetization strategy, it’s PvP-heavy focus, Elyria’s tribal system, and how the team is fitting all of the parts together to make a functional “massively multiplayer world.”
Check out the lance-shattering, horse-pounding, herald-displaying action of Chronicles of Elyria’s jousting after the break!
