The arrival of a test realm very often seems to be a development that’s met with a lot of praise from players, so fans of Wizard101 may be excited to learn that their MMORPG is getting a test realm of its very own soon. This spring, to be exact.
This announcement was made during last week’s King’s Isle Live developer stream, which also introduced some new pet-focused features that will be up for testing once the test realm goes live, like a Pet Mastery system that lets players climb mastery tiers for certain games every 25 wins, a new Happiness stat for pets that will let players control their pet as well as other soon to be announced benefits, and a Spiral Showcase event exclusively for pets.
In addition, Wizard101 testers will be seeing updates like a revamped UI, an updated new user experience, improved castle decorating features, and a new monthly calendar of events for people to keep track of what’s going on in-game.
