Legends of Aria eyes October for Steam early access

Let's try not being dead today.

The Legends of Aria team sounds as if it has a lot on its plate right now. The team posted a road to launch update to keep fans appraised of the plan from here to release.

And there is a wee bit to do: “We need to implement a list of features (like fixing the map, adjusting the UI, loot, and more) and then go all in on bugs and stability for the next few weeks. We need to lock in some stress tests. We need to close the servers for some focused testing. We need to wipe the servers for the final time, and give our crowdfunders and founder’s pack buyers their head start. And we need to launch on Steam early access.”

Because that’s not enough, the team is throwing two events this month, a 6XGM event on August 17th and a Permadeath Mod event on August 30th. Following that on September 4th, the servers will go dark in preparation for early access some time in October. Hopefully. “Going to Steam is the natural next step for a game that began with crowdfunding and needs a critical mass of population in order to succeed,” said the team.

I’ve put some hours into the game over the past month and it’s definitely ready for Early Access. It’s not launch-ready, but the client is stable, core systems are in place, and most of the work remaining is tweaks to combat/craft balance, adding some more functionality to housing and guilds, and fleshing out the map with more mobs and PoIs.

Looking forward to this one.
