A Holiday Gift!

Hello everyone! Whether you celebrate Kwanzaa, Christmas or Hanukkah, we wish you and your family the best during this holiday season!
A lot of people have been wondering how things are going. As a little Holiday gift, we've decided to bring you some news on 2.3.

Many of you may already know that we're releasing 2.3 on SteamWorks. This will allow us many new features including automatic patching and Achievements. Some of the achievements we have planned for 2.3 are as follows:

I have never lost a melee! - Kill 100 enemies in hand to hand combat.
Survivalist - Win a round of Last Team Standing while still alive.
Parrot Kebab - Kill a parrot with your spear.
Blast Proof - Survive a keg explosion.
Lightning Rod - Get hit by three different specials within 10 seconds.

These are just a few of the many achievements we have planned, there are plenty more to be expected!
With 2.3's release, we're expecting to see an influx of newer players. As a result, we've decided we'll need to even things out between the new player and the advanced player. Though we still expect those who have a lot of experience to do well, we're making some combat changes and features to help new players get a feel for the game quicker. More information will be available on this in the future.

Now, no news post would be complete without some nice screenshots! Below we have, in order:
-The new territory in Desertruin, allowing more space to move around.
-New paths in Forgotten, making it easier to sneak in and out of enemy bases.
-Some preview shots of Pinegrove, which Gaz is working on.
-Some in-game shots of the Gestir weapons.

That's all for now! We'll be back in action after the holidays are over to bring you some more great stuff!

    I assume with kegs. Nothing will be left standing.


    If you don't get it, it's a play on the phrase "leveling the playing field" to mean literally, leveling it to a flat surface.

    Are you guys trying to kill vampires that might be playing or is this just your superhero modder weakness or something? Produce the most awesome mod ever.... buuuut you need to make it so bright that I can actually get a sunburn from playing the desert maps for too long.

    Progress is awesome! The new desert ruin however.... well its better then the current one horray!
    Member of the one territory party. One tower in desert ruin, one head on colossus, one boat in grog boat, one horn tower in helms deep is our slogan. Obviously specials (knight) break territory style game play, so our party supports a server side and mapping option to have specials turned off.

    I love pine grove! But why change desert ruin? As far I could tell, that was one of people's favorite maps. The tower is drastically different and not as fun looking sad.gif

    People loved to DM on it, objective was horribly imbalanced toward knights and against pirates.
    Relatively minor changes (such as an additional tower) were not enough to sort this out.

    New one will be fun for all!
