When last we heard from the Caravan Stories team, the open beta originally planned for July 23rd had to be pushed back indefinitely. After that, things were pretty silent on the game’s front, a fact that the devs admitted themselves at the end of July. In an effort to appease any possible frustration as well as maintain any interest in the MMO, the game’s official Twitter account has been a regular stream of sneak peeks and previews all through the month of August.
The previews in question run a broad variety of pieces of interest, from a look at locations like the Imperial City of Valmeur or the Gold Dungeon at Loppi Mine, to NPCs like Mero the Lizardman or Amelia the Baker, to brief glimpses at gameplay mechanics like rewards for 100% area exploration and masks for your caravan. Most important of all, though, is the revelation that Caravan Stories will feature stats-buffing cats. I’m not even being facetious; this is genuinely good to know. Good kitties.
Unfortunately, a new date for the open beta of the JRPG MMO is not yet among the reveals, but the devs are working on it. “We understand that delays are frustrating, know that a lack of information can make it even worse, and we apologize for not being more clear,” reads a tweet from July. “We’re doing everything we can to get to the point where we can announce our new date as soon as possible. Stay tuned!”
Just north of the Elven town of Luwiera lies Loppi Mine. This rough-and-tumble area is home to all sorts of shady characters. But it's also home to the famous Gold Dungeon. Will you find your fortunes here? pic.twitter.com/4vtoB3BWIx
