weeks days hours to go before Shroud of the Avatar officially launches with Release 52, the crew at Portalarium are working on firming up the build before pushing it live.
So what’s on tap for the final stretch? More of the same, really. The team is working on the creation of a new zone called South Boundless Forest, which hosts ancient redwoods, kobold miners, and stag clan barbarians. Blood River Forest is another area in the making that will feature suspicious elves, a stepped pyramid, and (brace yourself) a fish hatchery.
Other projects include the new observatory home (with a usable telescope!), female shopkeeper models, custom gear for companions, and a rebuild of the town of Northwood.
Catch up on Shroud of the Avatar’s launch with creators Richard Garriott and Starr Long in Massively OP’s preview of this spiritual successor to Garriott’s Ultima franchise.
