This week, Xsyon is participating in Steam's Autumn Sale and is discounted 50% off. Take advantage of this sale to invite friends and grow your tribe!
In addition, here is some information from my Developer Update on the current state of development:
In the past I've released game updates as they're ready. This has resulted in active periods often followed by slow periods while I work on and test the next round of improvements. Unfortunately itís been difficult to keep a solid influx of new and returning players this way.
This year Iíve been working with a different approach. While Iíve released bug fixes, optimizations and minor changes, Iíve been saving up major features and improvements until I have many ready to go. With a series of important updates released on a regular monthly basis, I hope to build and keep a steady momentum to attract new players and entice past players to return to an active world of Xsyon.
The upcoming series of updates will include:
- Continued heavy optimizations
- Revised position and action synchronization
- Creature AI revisions
- Creature stat revisions
- Creature path finding revised
- Combat revisions
- Animal Taming
- Artisan and Master weapons
- Two handed weapons
- Weapon bonuses revised
- 40-50 Improvements based on Player Suggestions including a Party system
- War Server territorial conquest system
- Personal currency consolidation
- Ranged Combat
- First round of Achievements
Iím hoping to start rolling out these updates in January. Upon completion of these I will release Xsyon from Early Access on Steam!
Public testing will commence in a week or two, starting with creature revisions, synchronization, animal taming and many minor improvements. The Test Server is currently open and will remain open while I run specific tests.
When Iím ready for public feedback, I will post in the Developer Zone.
Thanks and enjoy Xsyon!
