Two years ago, Blue Isle Studios dropped its new game on Steam early access: Citadel Forged With Fire, a “massive online sandbox RPG” with all the survival MMO sandbox trappings. Early access was originally expected to last only a year, but as that year came and went, the game admittedly started falling off the radar, and I don’t just mean ours; barring a blip last August when the Reignited patch dropped, average concurrency has been under 100 players most months.
In any case, maybe an official launch – and console ports – will help boost the game’s popularity, and that’s just what Blue Isle is up to today.
“The magical world of Citadel: Forged With Fire is preparing to take flight on October 11 for Steam, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, for both retail and digital platforms. Set in the enchanted world of Ignus, this magical massive online sandbox RPG teaches aspiring wizards the art of spellcasting, spellcrafting, broomstick flying and extensive building as you make allies to form a House and then an empire.”
Devs are boasting “three major content updates and more than 90 patches” that have fleshed out the game along the way – not too shabby.
