Alganon Newsletter - April 2015
Greetings from the QOL dev team!
It has been quite a while since our last
newsletter and we wanted to take a moment to update all of you on the
world of Alganon and our march into to the future. Before we do, we
wanted to give a heart-felt thank you to all the players that have stuck
with us over the years. We are a small but dedicated team, and while
fixes don't always come as fast as we would like we are extremely
determined to give you the very best that Alganon has to offer. So
again, thank you for taking this journey with us!
Alright, let's get to it!
Since the launch of the Rise of the Ourobani expansion we have seen
many cases of combat issues, ranging from enemies sliding around to not
being able to apply or take damage at all. These issues were spread
across the game world and overall left combat feeling flat for expansion
and core players alike. We are happy to report that with the help of
many bug reports from our dedicated player base we have finally fixed
the root of the problem and combat is again working correctly!! NPCs
and enemies will again behave as intended, be they friend or foe. For
more details on these fixes, visit the patch notes on the forum here!
The World of Alganon - Coming Soon to Steam!
Along with the extensive combat and bug fixes we have also been busy
re-tooling the game to share the world of Alganon with even more
players. With this in mind, we are happy to announce that Alganon will
soon be coming to Steam! The game will still be F2P with the in-game
cash shop, but you can still purchase the Rise Of The Ourobani expansion
if you want to.
This is an exciting step for Alganon and we look forward to the new
and existing players that will take advantage of it. We will release
more information when we get closer to the release, so stay tuned!
By the time you read this, the Coming Soon store page should be live on Steam.
Being released on Steam, also means that you will be able to login
using either a new Steam account or your existing Alganon account. There
are no plans to migrate existing Alganon accounts to Steam.
Rise of the Ourobani Expansion
The Rise of the Ourobani expansion brought
about a great change in the world of Alganon. The Ourobani began their
long-planned political offensive on the Asharr and Kujix, playing off of
the strengths and weaknesses of each with their ever-shifting
alliances. Their ultimate goal cannot be guessed, but they are making
no secret of their attempts to both help and hinder the races in turn.
To this end they shut down the Portal system, which prompted the other
races to create flying mount routes throughout the continents. Players
of all races are now able to visit the continent of Aeon, the Ourobani's
homeland, in search of new treasures and the creatures that guard
them. It has never been a better time to dive back into Alganon!!
- A brand new playable race, the Ourobani
- A new, unique leveling experience in the new continent of Aeon
- A new combat companion class playable by all races... The Warden
- Flying mounts in Alganon: See the lands as never before as you ride your mount through the skies!
- Mercenaries for hire to even the odds in combat
- New quests, items and rewards!
