The fifth round of pre-alpha testing is on the way for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, and it looks like the game is getting even more pretty all the time. A new keep, the Black Rose, is in development for the next patch, as well as a website overhaul for the fantasy MMO.
In this past week’s developer livestream, the team talked about these projects and many other features including more idle and combat animations, a lava shader system for an upcoming scorched environment, improved chat bubbles, and a whole lot more.

Recently, Visionary Studios defended its commitment to limited action sets as part of Pantheon’s game design.
