Profane, the upcoming indie MMO from Brazillian developer Insane, took to Twitter once again to talk about some of the features coming when the MMO launches. This time it's all about world exploration and more.
Like Twitter threads before this one, Profane breaks down the feature in a series of tweets, showcasing some first looks at game art and more. This time the team is taking on world exploration, as well as looking at some of the ruins as well as "what you can expect to bump into" while traveling through Semisus, the game world.
Hey, community!This Friday's topic will be over ruins, world exploration, and what you can expect to bump into while searching for adventures in Semisus.The concepts you see represent one of the ways through which you'll unravel the mysteries of Profane's world... pic.twitter.com/IL6djB3z9Y— Profane MMORPG (@ProfaneMMO) August 20, 2021
Profane's developers specifically call out the fact that the ruins in the game speak to the age and history of the larger game world, stating that they want players to be able to piece together this history little by little.
They are scattered throughout the world, and, little by little, we want players to put together all the pieces of this story (or should we say puzzle? ??). Regardless, this is definitely going to take some time.— Profane MMORPG (@ProfaneMMO) August 20, 2021
Some inhabitants of Semisus believe these ruins used to be the house of gods, but there's also word that goes around that they are remnants of the old magical kingdoms of Torel. ??????No one is quite sure anymore since they've been around for so long now.— Profane MMORPG (@ProfaneMMO) August 20, 2021
Ruins themselves house rewards, such as Elemental Skills, Artifacts and more. Insane goes on to state that encounters at these ruins might change, depending on if they are found previously, stating that the team wants to avoid players being able to make guides or shares a "step-by-step" guide on how to overcome these scenarios. This way, every player has a different experience when exploring these ruins.
Ruins will represent the pinnacle of fantasy in the game. We want them to be intriguing and mysterious and would also like to see some labyrinth-like gameplay with moving walls or changing structures, which we already tested in pre-alpha and worked great. pic.twitter.com/8GTVuOFPzb— Profane MMORPG (@ProfaneMMO) August 20, 2021
