Shroud of the Avatar on Steam Early Access
Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues has arrived on Steam Early Access. Relief for a lot of people I assume.
Shroud of the Avatar’s Steam launch coincides with Release 12, which features the addition of a number of new features. Among them are 15 new skills and more than 50 weapon and armor crafting recipes, an in-game hint system, 40 new songs, the addition of Skill Trainers, maps for the Ravenswood Forest and Tower of the Shuttered Eye areas, guild support, and “polished visuals and random encounters” on the overworld map.
“When we applied for Early Access for the game, we received our green light in less than three days. In fact Steam players gave the OK with an 86 percent approval rating,” Garriott said in a statement. “What they’ll find is a fantasy RPG that harkens back to my earlier games in the genre, but with modern-day technology that combines a single player narrative with an Ultima-like sandbox MMO.”
