Dark and Light is gearing up for its first big expansion, Shard of Faith, which is set to hit Steam tomorrowday as a free-to-play update for owners of the original MMO. The key feature of the expansion is a new map dubbed Garaneth’s Shard.
“Adventurers will uncover new power of mysterious Faith, and fight against the forces of darkness with the help of ancient God and deities,” Snail Games says. “With the cross scene and cross plane feature, it expands and supplements the larger universe of Dark and Light.” It also sounds as if the game is introducing new NPC races to interact with, plus the long-promised mod-development toolkit.
But most D&L players will be fixated on the new magical taming system, the changes to what you drop on your body when you die, and the upgrades for questing and knowledge. Check it out on October 9th and scope out the images while you wait.
