Boy, it’s been a few minutes since we took a peek into Villagers & Heroes. It’s certainly not for lack of appreciation, of course – the game was counted by Justin among one of the perfect 10 MMOs to break you out of a gaming rut. So allow us to catch up with what’s been happening recently.
The game’s most recent patch, which arrived on May 3rd, reopened the event zone of the Twilight Vale, bringing with it new fae-styled regalia, raiments, mounts, and more, along with some overall improvements and a number of bug fixes. In the near future, the game will be kicking off the third season of raids, though the start date of the season did have to be pushed back to sometime in the final week of June.
Otherwise, the game has been chugging along with updates and events, including a server vs. server May Day event, an Easter egg hunt, and a Naked Shamrock Run among other smaller fix-focused patches. As for larger updates, there was the Relics of Malice update this past December, the Equinox update in September 2020, and the Shadow of the Eclipse update in May 2020. So while update timing might be a bit sporadic, there’s still lots going on.
