[H]ard as it Gets
- Feb 19, 2008
The game was scheduled to hit Alpha the end of 2018 but that's obviously not going to happen. I can absolutely see it still being 2 more years until launch.They basically had to update the graphics otherwise people would write off the game for that alone. Really hope they would have some cool spells effects like they did in either EQ 2 or Dark Age of Camelot.
If they took another 2+ years I wouldn't care really just hope the game is successful.
One of the problems with the development timeline for the game right now is they don't have nearly enough artist and world-builders. They only have a partial list of zones done on the first continent, and even then, have sort-of started over. Everything they have done up until now is going to have a second pass. Faerthale is going to become their new template zone that all other zones will be based on (design/feature wise), which means a lot of work already done will need to be changed. Then they need to complete the rest of the first continent, then build an entire second continent.
I think figuring out how to implement the perception system and finishing building the world and art are the last two major hurdles for them.
