Trion and the Defiance team have posted a new developer diary to show off the new chat and UI features that players can expect to see in game in the near future. According to the blog post, the team has worked extensively with players to make sure that key features and improvements have been included. To give an indication of what both the chat interface and UI will look like, several screenshots have been included.
Since the launch of Defiance, one of the most frequent requests we’ve gotten is to improve chat. Over the past few months, the team has been talking to ark hunters about the good, the bad, and the ugly of our chat interface and working to overhaul it. Today, I’m excited to give you a look into our upcoming chat and UI improvements.
In short: we’ve trimmed the fat. Previously, we tried a “kitchen sink” approach to chat, which obscured the core functionality and made the experience frustrating and clunky while in the heat of battle. Today, we have a cleaner, sleeker, and more useful chat to roll out for Defiance fans. Without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to our new chat functionality.
