Crowfall releases patch 5.8, the first campaign patch, without the first campaign

It's fine.

Good news, Crowfall fans, the long-awaited patch for the game’s first real campaign releases today! Except it does so without the actual just-referenced first real campaign; instead, the patch has hit the live servers without a “sanctioned” campaign that actually provides rewards and works like a campaign world and all of that. Which makes this the first real pre-first campaign patch, presumably. It might change a font somewhere.

That’s a joke, obviously; there are lots of quality-of-life and system improvements in patch 5.8, and the reason for releasing it to the live (well, alpha) servers first is to test for any lingering issues before pulling the trigger on the first full campaign. So the good news is that you’ll be able to enjoy the aforementioned quality-of-life improvements now before the full campaign starts up, but the bad news is… having to wait for the first real campaign a bit longer. That’s actually implied by the good news.

It feels like all the enthusiasm for this game is gone. They really need to impress with these first campaigns to rebuild some hype.

I really want this one to succeed because it seems like a PvP sandbox game I’ll actually enjoy. It’s teamwork and objective oriented rather than just “go murder new players for giggles.”

As much as I am *personally* super-excited about Crowfall, I think you’re right to some degree. These campaigns need to be excellent if they’re going to boost interest in Crowfall. It is kind of interesting that between Crowfall and Camelot Unchained we’re seeing two very different approaches to MMO development with regard to public information. I’m super curious to see how the two ultimately work out as a result.

If its fun, and it looks like it will be, it will gain more and more hype as features are locked into place and polished.

I’m not an expert, but if it’s fun, I think hype will take care of itself.
