Notorious Games has announced its latest plans in the ongoing development of the sandbox MMORPG Xsyon, Prelude. The next round of features planned for Xsyon focus on tools and systems to enhance community building and player interactions.
These plans include:
Improved Quest system, where players create quests for other players, collect bounties, exchange items and gain experience.
Trade system for player run stores.
Carts, bridges and an improved road building system for easier transport of goods.
Tribe and town abandonment and the advent of undead that haunt abandoned settlements.
World expansion including unsafe territories and allowing tribal towns to become 'unsafe' and gain advantages by doing so.
Special weekend and holiday events run by the Xsyon Guide Team.
Here is a recap of some improvements that have gone into Xsyon since the Prelude launch:
Expanded, flexible, part based construction system allowing players to build expansive buildings and towns.
Completely new twitch based manual combat system with held directional swings and parries.
Enhanced creature system. Many new and stronger creatures now inhabit Xsyon, breeding, ageing, growing in power and becoming mutants.
Improved crafting system providing crafting tool and material bonuses.
Redistributed rare and valuable resources.
Forestry system with trees that grow, spread and can be planted by player characters.
Revised User Interface based on player input, including tabbed chat, a map panel, weather gauges and improved customization.
Improved graphics with HDR lighting, detailed soft shadows and enhanced visual effects.
Xsyon is a unique fantasy role playing sandbox MMOPRG that allows players to create their own virtual realities as they form tribes, build towns, shape landscapes, create quests and build an economy.
Xsyon is designed as an open ended sandbox MMORPG that evolves with its community. The Prelude is the current, limited first release of the Xsyon virtual world. During the Prelude, the Xsyon world and features continue to adapt and change based on community observation and feedback.
Notorious Games is currently taking orders for Xsyon: Prelude.
