Pantheon’s newsletter teases Project Faerthale development progress and previews the North Tusk Orcs

The folks at Visionary Realms are still chugging along on Pantheon’s Project Faerthale, which aims to provide testers with their first glimpse at the cohesive Pantheon experience with all of its (current) features in one package, and the latest newsletter from the studio is here to give players another trickle of information about what players can expect to see when it’s finally done.

One particular area currently under construction puts a strong emphasis on the game’s climbing system, which the devs are experimenting with and polishing up to “make it meaningful and enjoyable.” When Project Faerthale is unveiled, the post says, players can expect to “see a much more polished climbing system that adds a fun, thoughtful layer to the gameplay.”

The newsletter also sits down with Lead Writer JN Garhart and Concept Artist Forrest Imel, who pull back the curtain on the process of bringing the North Tusk Orc race to life, from early concepts to final models. If you’re curious to know what sets Pantheon’s Orcs apart from the Tolkien-inspired tropes that pervade the fantasy genre, if you want to learn how the race has evolved over the course of the game’s development, or if you just want to feast your eyes on the final in-game renders of the monstrous greenskins, then the full interview is well worth a read. You can find it, along with plenty more morsels of information, over at the game’s official site.

Even though they’re not showing us, it really sounds like they’re getting close on having Project Faerthale done. Here’s hoping we get to see some of that next month.

In the meantime, wow those orcs. They really look savage and bestial. I would love to see the orc village we’ve seen in some of the streams with the new models and see how that looks.

This is the only game I have hopes for and looking forward to playing.

I like how transparent VR is about the state of development and how they try not to disappoint their potential players with release dates they can’t hold (looking at you Ashes of Creation with your “will release before 2020” statement that wasn’t realistic to begin with). So far they’re doing alright.

Regarding the state of development, there is already a ton of information about this game, which made me think it may release soon, although i realized that its still pretty far from that.
