    Upcoming updates for 2012!

    Post  SeratedGrin on Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:04 pm

    Mission System!
    A major addition is on the way that adds a new mission system to Spiral Knights, complete with a main campaign that allows Knights to play through, rank up and receive rewards. Missions are selected from an all new interface and are available to every player. Missions within the main campaign that require you to journey into the Clockworks will have the same elevator costs as the arcade.

    I can't share too much at this point, but one of the missions in development will have Knights confronting one of the Crimson Order in a fortified castle filled with all manners of gremlin weaponry.

    We're very excited about this new feature and will be sharing more information when it's available.

    Year of the Dragon
    A promotion will soon take flight to celebrate the Year of the Dragon!

    Item Balance
    Some item balance changes are on the way. Specifically this will target items that require tweaks to have their stats stand apart from similar ones and some changes to handguns to make them more varied and viable in combat. Check the forums for notice of these changes before they happen.
    --------------------------------------------

    A mission system!
    I believe this is going to be a very good year for Spiral Knights.

    I somehow have a feeling that it will be crap Smile That we will get missions like "Go to Tier 3 and kill 30 wolves".

    Nah I wouldn't think so, Bride. They may have kill-based quests in the 'traditional' sense, but the hint about the Crimson Order in the castle points to the idea of specialised fields for the mission itself, so I doubt it's just the prior.

    It can be fun... but maybe some people will be furious if some people are higher ranks and they are jealous... (I might be one of those)

    Things you might have (not) thought about:
    - mission system brings new interface. read as a new tab similar to loadouts. Or smaller.
    - "Missions ... that require you to journey into the Clockworks " - there will be missions that don't need you to go to clockworks. And there might be a separate elevator (or few) just for these missions.
    - Crimson Order = bunch of tough gremlins, possible new boss. Its been a LONG time since we had a proper new boss (its been several months since shadow lairs - those started around Oct) so I'd say about time... but then again it could be a single level
    - Year of the Dragon - some promo some day, more costumes for CE purchases?
    - Item Balance - like giving proto sword one explosion on charge, some other swords 2-3 explosions on charged attack. No significant improvements made yet, no significant changes named yet.

    Still no plans for:
    - core
    - tier 4
    - more real bosses (just a hint on new level/room)
    - significant amount of new goodies, enemies, other stuffs, basically, they're re-balancing those 10 swords we have.
    - still nothing other than banana lord as end-game content

    Snarbolax is crying. I just tore off his tail. I was bored. Still am.
