Crowfall fans are in for a long, tall drink of information this weekend, poured straight from the minds of creators J. Todd Coleman and Gordon Walton. The pair sat down for a lengthy Reddit AMA on Friday, tackling dozens of questions from the community.
Coleman said that the team is currently working on the core of Crowfall: “Our next milestone is focused on making the foundation of the MMO work: large scale world(s), persistence across days (…then weeks, then months), scalability of the game service. There are some new systems coming online (harvesting and crafting, revised chat, revised skills), but MOST of the next milestone revolves around the theme of ‘laying the foundation for the real game.’”
The duo confirmed that there will not be regional restrictions between Europe and North America, although the rest of the world is not yet determined. Gordon Walton also addressed the question that looms over the community, namely, when is testing and launch? “We’ll be letting Beta 1 players into testing this year as we start more persistent testing. Actual beta TBD. Actual launch date even more TBD.”
