As you can imagine, we have been quite busy lately; there are already dozens of backers playing the beta of Lords of Xulima.
These dedicated players have been kind enough to let us know, through our development forum, about various bits of the game which required our attention. Fortunately, most of these corrections were related to in-game text: English localization, spelling errors, missing tooltip descriptions, and other similar things. Naturally, we continue to address issues as they come up, whether they are minor or part of the bigger family of compatibility errors.
With additional feedback from our backers to consider, we have tweaked lots of rules and game parameters so as to improve the game’s balance and difficulty. Now, we think Lords of Xulima is much more polished and ready to welcome new beta players!
The New Beta
The latest Beta version includes voice-overs which were missing, Steam achievements as well as a fully implemented Hall of Heroes in the region of Varaskel. Just like the previous Beta phase, we will send out invitation e-mails to ask if you would like to participate in the Beta program. As always, we would like to recommend that players wait until the final version for the best experience possible, but if you wish to play, you can do it now!
Since the process of sending invitations and keys is a task we have to do manually, we will need several days to contact everyone, so we appreciate your patience. This upcoming Monday is when the take-off happens, and if all goes well it might even start sooner!
As a reminder, this Beta version will be available for all those who pledged for the Beta Player Edition in Kickstarter (or those who pre-ordered from our website). Of course, it is also available for all those who pledged for higher rewards.
Wallpapers & Worldmap Rewards
Last week we sent out wallpapers to eligible backers. This week, we will send you the high-definition Worldmap of Xulima. We hope you like it, and that it will inspire you to look forward to exploring the vast world of Xulima.
You might be interested in knowing that the small beach known as Tranquil Coast, in the western part of Velegarn, is where the adventure starts…
…and that’s it. For now! See you soon!
