Developer Diary – Ostara Approaches!

Ostara is upon us…

The air smells sweeter and the days grow longer as the year bursts into new life after the long harsh Yule season. The evil forces of Taranis have retreated with the snows and peace has come to Dal Riata. Herne and his kin have been seen across the lands revelling in the Great Hunt but they are accompanied by dark rumours and evil portents.

I hope this update finds you well and excited about the coming months. We have a fantastic new seasonal update for you coming very soon complete with challenging foes and fantastic rewards and now’s your chance to get a sneak preview of some of the items.

As you can see our artists have once again created some awesome concepts and models for outfits that you’ll soon see across the servers.

Gelebron’s Tower has gone down fantastically well with our higher level players and I hope it’s inspiring the rest of you to level up so you can join in the fun as well. We’re continuing to listen to your feedback in the beta and in the forums to fine tune the experience so get in there with your clanmates and friends and tell us your thoughts on the mobs, loot and tactics.

We haven’t forgotten about the rest of you at lower levels either. We’ll soon be ready to unveil a brand new feature that should keep you coming back to get some valuable XP on a regular basis. The aim is to get this into beta as soon as we can because poor old Killian never gets a moment’s peace these days.

Another feature, probably one of the biggest in the history of Celtic Heroes, will be previewed soon as well. For the past few months we’ve had designers, programmers and artists working away to create a compelling gathering and crafting system and the first fruits of their labours will be soon ready to sample. We know this system will take some time to get right so it will be open to some rigorous beta testing but we think you’ll be hooked once it goes live.

Behind the scenes we’re also working on more improvements to the main game code to make your time in Dal Riata more enjoyable and much more visually appealing. These should also allow us to decrease the time it takes us to create and release new updates with minimal interruption to your experience.

It’s already shaping up to be a great year in Dal Riata so gather your weapons, strap on your armour and rally your clanmates; Glory awaits, heroes!

P.S. If it’s Gelebron’s Tower then where is Gelebron…? Patience, brave souls, are you so eager to rush to your doom…?
