Shroud of the Avatar News

Latest Headlines for Shroud of the Avatar

  • Release 13 - Get Lucky

    I found it rather amusing that this is the 13th major release for Shroud of the Avatar, and that it comes after their hugely successful debut on Steam. Last month saw the game added to Steam's list of available Early Access titles, and the results were a sweeping victory for the team at Portalarium. With a whopping 87% positive reviews, and really strong sales that put the game in the top 10 on Steam's list of top sellers, it's been a fantastic month for Shroud of the Avatar.

  • Early Access on Steam Begins

    Early Access players can now log into Steam to give Shroud of the Avatar a look. The game will be available to players 24/7 and will give the opportunity to see SotA evolve over time.

  • Release 12: Undiscovered Country

    There are actually a couple reasons for my selecting the above title this month, as Shroud of the Avatar stretches in new directions. The big news being that you'll be able to purchase Shroud from your Steam account starting on 24th of November, but there's a lot more to this release than just how you can get involved with it. New scenes and lots of additional content will provide even existing backers some new feel to the game.

  • Full STEAM Ahead!

    Shroud of the Avatar, along with Camelot Unleashed, Pathfinder Online, and Star Citizen represent the upcoming crop of crowdfunded MMO's. The Kickstarter for the project raised $1.9 million from over 22,000 backers and the project has since raised about $5 million in total crowdfunding from nearly 132,000 backers.

  • A Tour Around Update 11

    This week I continued my interview series on the development of Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues by Portalarium. Joining me this month were both the founder of Portalarium Richard "Lord British" Garriott and Executive Producer "Dark" Starr Long. We spent a little over an hour running around New Britannia Tuesday night showing off a number of interesting player and developer created features.

  • Release 11: It’s Steamy!

    I am quite literally just back from Austin as I sit down to write this latest update on Shroud of the Avatar. I wasn't able to make it up for my typical week-before-release hangout with the guys, so today was pretty much a drive by. It's well worth staying up past my bedtime to hack this article out, though. Despite the brevity of my visit, I got a load of cool information to share with you folks, and I'm excited to do it.

  • Concerns Worthy of Note

    Nothing and no one is perfect though, so I thought it might be a good idea to set my fandom aside for bit and take a critical look at Richard's new work. If nothing is perfect, then there must be some flaws or challenges worthy of conversing about. Besides, it's through examining the imperfections that we sometimes come to truly appreciate art and all its true complexity. As their 10th release approaches, it might be a good time to take that sort of look at Shroud.

  • Checking in on Update 9

    Last week I hosted a livestream interview with Richard Garriott and Starr Long of Portalarium. Portalarium is currently working on Shroud of the Avatar. When I caught up with Richard and Starr they were at DargonCon in Atlanta showing off their game. At the same time other members of the Portalarium team were present at PAX Prime in Seattle. I asked Richard and Starr about the latest news with update 9 and about what we could expect in update 10.

  • Release 9: More Combat, More Everything

    The neophyte to Shroud of the Avatar might expect things to slow down over the last month or two.

They've got a schedule to keep, and everyone knows you can't stop a train.

  • 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.
