  • Release 8 to Focus on PvP

    The latest instructions for backers of Shroud of the Avatar have been posted to get everyone on board for tomorrow's Release 8.

  • Release 8 - Good Old Ultraviolance

    I rolled into Austin beneath dark and water-laden skies last week to see what the guys at Portalarium were cooking up for Release 8 of their Shroud of the Avatar. Thunder rocked the sky as I stepped from my truck and turned to see lightning striking across the menacingly named Greystone Building. The drama of the moment seems appropriate in hindsight, because I've now seen what the team has planned for their next release.

    RTX's main mission is to celebrate Internet culture in a general way, but Shroud of the Avatar made a strong impression on this year's attendees. And with the game's PvP is nearly ready for prime time (Release 8 launches this month), is it any wonder?

    Just got off the horn with Richard Garriott and Starr Long, and thought you all might like some insight into the next release of their awesome new game, Shroud of the Avatar.

  • Major Changes to Backer Tiers

    One of the most interesting things about watching the development of Shroud of the Avatar has been observing the interactions between developers and backers. I have most definitely seen some awesome relationships created between players and developers. It's always sort of seemed to me that guys like Matt Higby from SOE's PlanetSide franchise were the model other developers and studios should look to for guidance on player-interaction, but I think I need to change that opinion, now.

  • Heralding the Future of Games

    After spending some time with Richard Garriott last week, there were a bunch of topics that we discussed which did not make it on video. One of the main ideas was where video games are going, especially MMOs. With both Shroud of the Avatar and Star Citizen doing so well with crowd funding the games are really more about community than ever before. This led to the discussion of why Shroud of the Avatar will herald in a new era of games that continue to bring players together on many levels.
