Roster Patches and Content Update

Hey everyone,

Here’s the latest from us here at Red Hook!

Early Next Week: The Roster Patch!
  • Color Variations: All heroes have 4 different color palettes available for you to choose from!
  • Roster Sorting: Sort by stress, resolve level, and more.
  • Party Combo Names 1.0: Certain party combos will be named! When assembling your group, watch for the popup and see if you’ve uncovered a named combo. We’re starting with only a few, but more combo names will be added as we continue development.
  • misc fixes, etc.

 

Content Drop:

We know that many of you are chomping at the bit for more content, and while we want to get as much new stuff out as quickly as we can, we also want to make sure that what we release is of a quality level consistent with the rest of the game. We have targeted the end of May for our first major content update, and it’s a big one!

  • New Hero: The Man-at-Arms – a battle hardened commander with mace, shield, and rallying shouts!
  • New Hero: The Arbalest – a field medic and artillery emplacement wrapped up in plate armor!
  • 2 – 3 new Bosses! We are aiming to get one new boss in each of the existing dungeons.
  • Fear the Dark: New rewards for the brave and the foolhardy alike can be found only in the dark during Medium and Long quests. Tread carefully, however, as such rare and powerful trinkets are not left unguarded…

As we focus our content efforts on this patch, you can expected misc. quality of life improvements, bug fixes, balance, tuning, etc to arrive in the intervening weeks.

As always, we want to thank you for your enthusiasm and support!

    Im looking forward to Color Variations. I will feel less awkward having the same classes in my party if i know which character is which through visual cues instead of just names.

    I wonder if the arbalest will be the first class that only moves backwards and what sort of a twist will they add to their 5th healer to make it interesting?

    that’s just curiosity… but one thing I hope they don’t do is naming groups based on combat roles. it could work as a sort of a tutorial for beginners, but if they make it based on character themes, then I see better potential in it. some potential group buff/debuff mechanics could be based on thematic group composition…

    Your time will come

    Then I will play the shit out of you so hard

    And probably coo at the screen because I love doggies.

    Really curious to see what they’ll do with the Hound Master’s mechanics.

    Oh man yes, finally new classes. This game is amazing and in my opinion, there should maybe be some kind of prestige class system, rather than adding more classes and filling up the roster, but for now, more classes is fine!

    Read all the patch notes on Steam, good to see the game progressing more. Curious as to how long it will take in the end before the game is fully completed.

    Stopped playing it after I killed most of the bosses on all the difficulty settings, when there’s so much left to be added I’m waiting until the game is finished before I play it anymore so I can get the full experience. Looking forward to the eventual full release.
