It’s been a few months since we checked in on Otherland – in fact, the last detailed post we did was last November, when the rebranded and salvaged Tad Williams MMO rolled out a major expansion called Fire Isle. But as it turns out, Drago Entertainment has been updating its Facebook page heavily ever since.
Back in March, the game updated with a big patch and its its new UI and world update. “As most of you can already imagine, we are not done with it just yet,” the team wrote. “Just like with every aspect of an ever-growing MMO, so will the UI continue to evolve with time. Now that we have the base for it, we are already making plans on how it can be further improved.”
“Right now we are mostly focused on bringing the NeoGrail storyline to a conclusion. We have most of the planing and writing done and are about to start implementing it. This is going to be the main focus for the content team for the next months. Finishing the current storyline is a major milestone for us, but for other reasons than it usually is in a game. In our case we need to wrap it up in order to have the game prepared for new worlds and storylines from Tad Williams’ next works on Otherland. We agreed with him to have the game take place in the new worlds he is going to create. While we are not allowed to disclose any specifics just yet, one of the things we discussed with Tad was for the conclusion of the NeoGrail storyline to be possibly the beginning of the new book. Now you see why bringing the NeoGrail storyline to an end in the current development cycle has become a priority.”
Hello everyone!We have been working on a new video for Otherland: Next and we’d like to show you a preview of it. It is a video we plan to use as part of a promotional package in order to get some more players into the game.
