The Other Side of the Looking Glass

The Other Side of the Looking Glass -

The Matrix Online has released another edition of The Other Side of the Looking Glass. This time, they take a look at Combat Revision 2.0, as well as some community notes.

Well, we’ve already had one edition this week, but I’d like to get this back on track for Fridays. So this one may be short and sweet, but I think you’ll like the content.

Combat Revision 2.0

I’m working with the team to put together some additional information on what exactly Combat Revision 2.0 is all about. There are going to be significant changes to how the game plays, so we want to get more detail out to you as soon as possible.

Much of the design has been implemented in our early development branch and the work continues steadily. This is one of the top priorities as we have a special deadline to meet: Implementation of an external testing server.

We’ve known since the outset that community participation was going to be a key to making Combat Revision 2.0 come together. I know you’ve all been talking about this for a while, but we’ve had some hurdles to overcome before we were ready to announce this.

We are currently aiming for an early December launch of an external playtest server so you all can log on and try out the changes. We’ll be setting up a special forum for discussion and feedback about the revision so we can polish things up for the live release in January.

The test server will require a separate installation of the game, as did the old QA Test server. We’re working on a way to transfer characters over to the new test server, so you won’t have to start over from scratch (although we certainly would like to see some low-level testing).

We’ll be posting more details about the test server as we get closer to being ready to release it to the public. The team is happy to know that you all are excited about the changes and look forward to your feedback on Combat Revision 2.0.

I’ll be interested to find out what SDKane’s favorite topic becomes now. ;)
