The Shroud of the Avatar site's latest newsletter is out and about, this time with the news that Update 59 has landed on the QA server, most notably with the addition of the new tutorial area. The location is a "focused tutorial space" in the Isle of Storms that aims to provide players with the basics of many of the game's features. Once the tutorial area is complete, the newly minted character will land in one of three starter areas which are also to be updated.
The SotA team will be on hand today at 2:00 pm Pacific / 5:00 pm Eastern to show off the new user experience. The stream will take place in the Shroud of the Avatar Twitch channel.
This week we are going to talk about the rebuilt New User Experience that is going live in Release 59. This includes a new tutorial area in Isle of Storms and a rebuilt version of Solace Bridge. Keith “Sannio” Quinn and Travis “Vas Corp Por” Koleski will walk us through the new tutorial area and discuss the key differences and improvements of this experience including how choosing your story path is now independent of your starting decks.
Head over to the Shroud of the Avatar site to learn more about what the team's been working on and what things are going on in the community.
