Latest Developer Blog Reveals Updated Map & the Importance of Testing

Latest Developer Blog Reveals Updated Map & the Importance of Testing - MMORPG.com

Frostkeep has updated the Rend page with a new developer diary that thanks players for their input which has led directly to significant changes over the course of six alpha patches. In addition, devs show off an updated map that has seen the faction base moved to a new location as well as updates on the "relative size, shape, and difficulty of the Stagwood". These changes were made to provide players with "important gameplay and testing benefits".

With the altered map, these benefits include:

  • Improved New Player Experience
  • Clearer Map Progression Paths
  • Reduced Run Times
  • Mount Speed Insight
  • Better Setting for Reckoning PvP

This is a perfect opportunity for us to reiterate what Early Access means to Frostkeep! Alpha will continue until Rend is ready for its next major development milestone. Our standard for entering Early Access on Steam is simple: the game must be in a state such that if we were to never touch its code ever again, Rend would be considered a finished, complete game worth its buy-to-play-only price. We believe this was the original vision for Early Access and we will hold ourselves and our games to that standard. You should too.
