Rate this Entry
The apocalyptic fantasy sandbox MMORPG Xsyon kicks off its long awaited series of updates with a major patch today!

Tonight’s patch focuses on creatures, combat, synchronization and overall game performance. It features a complete revision of the AI and pathfinding system.

Xsyon’s creature AI system is unique and dynamic featuring:
- Creatures age from a child (pup, cub) to a venerable adult and can die from old age.
- Creatures grow with age and power.
- Creatures breed and are born from adult females instead of spawned.
- Creatures gather in family packs.
- Creatures migrate from densely populated areas to less populated zones.
- Creatures wander into toxic mist that transforms them into mutants.

Twitch based combat has been revised to be much more responsive and includes newly implemented parry and dodge actions.

Overall performance in terms of loading and client, server synchronization has been vastly improved with a complete rewrite of large sections of the game code.

Patches will continue to be release every two to three weeks and will include:
- Pets
- Stables
- Mounts
- Artisan and Master Weapons
- Achievements
- Improvements and minor features based on player suggestions and requests.
- Much more!

This patch series is the culmination of two years of hard work and I thank all you Xsyon players for your patience and assistance with testing and feedback.

Xsyon is an entirely player driven online game with a living and changing environment. Players form tribes, shape landscapes, construct towns, create quests, hunt, gather, and develop a New World.
