Shroud of the Avatar previews the Well of Aldur adventure scene and several upcoming gameplay changes

    
7

It’s a little bit of Release 86 preview and a little bit of post-Release 85 planning in this week’s Shroud of the Avatar update post. Topping off the newsletter is a new adventure scene available to Episode 2 Access holders and coming with R86 called the Well of Aldur. Players can look forward to a new jumping puzzle, a boss fight with new mechanics, and some unique new loot for those that are successful in clearing the scene.

“High above the mountain peaks of Mistrendur floats the crumbling remains of a civilization whose origins are lost to time. Only the greatest adventurers will decipher the secrets, survive the threats, and discover the true nature of the Well of Aldur.”

Further down the newsletter are outlines for several game adjustments that are in the works like cost reductions for the New You Makeover and Magic Movers services, single-click targeting features, improvements to occlusion to reduce the number of vanishing objects, environmental effects such as cold, fire, lava, and lightning now being affected by a character’s resistances, and changes to several combo skills among other things. These updates are expected to either be part of Release 85 or will be patched shortly after.

Instead of a Shroud 2021 Vision thing, this is posted:

I’m sure by “improved rewards” Chris means more streamer rewards and another fiddle with artifacts, unless they finally something to show for 2020 being the year loot stops sucking.

The only thing I find amazing about this game is that it’s still running, given how tiny the playerbase is. I’d bet there’s more people playing on various SWG EMUs than SotA.

Yes the other adventure scenes that were recently put in aren’t finished yet. No wonder the game is losing players in a huge way.

The… *checks Steam Charts*… 85 people, peak, who played this in the last 24hrs must be overjoyed! How small does a game have to be, Massively, before you stop wasting writer’s time on it?

Jump puzzles – everyone’s favorite part of Ultima since Super Avatar Bros!

To be fair, Pagan had some. And they were just as bad as you’d expect.

U8 Pagan = Super Avatar Bros.
