Yep, Elder Game’s early access MMO sandbox has rolled out a patch today with a bunch of weird additions. There are new war caches, there’s an upgrade to shop search, there are new tools for live events (!), the Unarmed skill has seen a huge overhaul, there are changes to treasure and legacy items, Sonic damage had been retired and converted, footsteps got a tweak, and there’s a big boon for gardeners who are willing to follow the in-game almanac. A sort of external sharing system is under construction as well for those of you who want an out-of-game record of your in-game fun.
“We’re working on some new ways for you to share your deeds and actions with the outside world. One thing we’re working on is a “news ticker” that shows recent heroic exploits, such as killing a boss, completing a recipe for the 1000th time, maxing out a skill, that sort of thing. (It’s not live yet — we’re still experimenting with it.) We’ll only be using your character’s name, and possibly other in-game names such as your guild’s name — we’d never share any real-life information. But if you are uncomfortable with having your character name-dropped outside of the game, you can opt out: in the “Social” window, under the “RESTRICT” tab, turn off “External References”.”
As we noted yesterday, Gorgon is one of many MMOs on sale during the Steam summer event right now.
