Hey folks,

I have a few screenshots of our update to South Longfall Wetland! The new areas includes a maze of poison gas, an abandoned village, a raft flotilla inhabited by pirates, and a secluded witch’s hut. This is still a work in progress, but feel free to leave feedback.

The Making of Crooked Shank (cont.)

[From a Dev+ Forum Post by Travis “Vas Corp Por” Koleski]

I journeyed out of town, but doubled back as every map of the region I’ve found says the Elven village I was searching for initially should be here. Having given up, I stopped for a late dinner and met more of the locals.

It looked like the townsfolk were preparing for some kind of spring festival down by the river.

Fed and rested, I made one more attempt to find the Elven Village. I did find a winding game-trail that led to an odd hatch. This led down a dark ladder-way. Once inside the chamber below, I was immediately accosted by angry elves.

Probing further into this hidden network of caves, I found nothing but trouble.

Thanks for continuing to follow our progress!

The Making of North Shattered Hills (cont.)

[From a Dev+ Forum Post by Esteben “SorcerousSteve” Zaldivar]

Hey guys! SorcerousSteve here to give you an update on North Shattered Hills! This week I have started polishing up the worldbuilding on the map and started spawning resources and creatures!

Below we can see the ancient remains of the Wizard’s Tower that blew up and caused the immense crater. At the epicenter of the explosion green goo and irradiated earth can be seen. This source of black magic has also given growth to extensive vines and roots that have taken over the crater.

Sunset at the heart of the crater with the Pillars of Night in the background.

An abandoned village to the Northwest that now lays in waste. A chunk of the old wizard tower can be seen in the background having been tossed by the explosion all the way over here.

Several buildings lay in ruin as pieces of rock and debris got flung out.

Meanwhile down at the crater Underdwellers have made home in some of the tunnels, a pair of bloody feet can be seen leading to one of the tunnel entrances…

Keep an eye out for North Shattered Hills coming this R46!
