The Forsaken Legends team has posted a lengthy video to tell the community about recent work being done on the game, why there have been some delays and to announce a big new lore update on the official forums.
The game's art style will be changing back to one that is more similar to the original style. The dev team will be building out a new version more as a single player experience to begin with and then letting the community test it and to provide feedback.
Characters will become human-only but the character creation process will become more robust to provide more variety.
Check out the entire video and then head to the Forsaken Legends site.
