As we enter into the final months of the year, Ankama, the studio behind unique tactical-strategy MMOs Wakfu and Dofus (among others), is here to check in with an update video that outlines what fans can expect from its games between now and the end of the year. Wakfu players can look forward to the villain Shadofang, who has already made her debut in the game’s tie-in animated series, being introduced as a level-200 ultimate boss “with a totally unexpected type of item that’s hard to master and super powerful.” The studio also officially announces that Wakfu’s long-rumored nation update will be coming this December, and it’ll be revamping the nations of Wakfu both aesthetically through new and updated art, and mechanically by way of unspecified gameplay changes and new quests.
Meanwhile, in the world of Wakfu’s predecessor Dofus, update 2.48 will be coming to the game soon, bringing with it the new Kolossium League PvP system, which also includes matchmaking adjustments and class balance tweaks. The update will also revamp the pet system, removing the restrictions on which resources can be fed to which pets and adjusting the bonuses that pets provide. Ankama also plans to “considerably increase the number of pets” going forward. Finally, the update will add the Ebon Dofus, allowing players to get one step closer to their ultimate goal of uniting the six Primordial Dofus. For more information on Wakfu, Dofus, and Ankama’s other games, you can check out the full video past the cut — the relevant section begins around the 5:17 mark.
