Action RPG Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem (previously known as Umbra) has been sitting in Steam Early Access since 2016. Last week the developers have presented the community a huge surprise by announcing that the project will enter Beta in September 2018. For this update, all characters and stashes will be wiped and players will have a whole new game to explore.
Before moving into Beta, the team had to reconsider some of the planned features for the game. In particular, the developers will likely keep the Open World feature for a later title. Additionally, the rotating camera would mean that the view has to be polished on 360°, which adds a huge amount of work for a barely used feature.
Yes, the game will be finished and released. The Wolcen Team is growing for you, and most of all, thanks to you and your awesome support since the Kickstarter campaign. Let me assure you that we are all dedicated to making this great game flourish.
Later, I will show you around the studio and introduce all these new faces you don’t know yet.
Thank you all for your support, now and always 🙂
