Mountain View, Calif. – October 16, 2012 A new season brings new change as Allods Online receives its latest update in North America and Europe on October 30! Autumn Wind welcomes sweeping improvements to Allods Online with updates to its user interface, a revamp of the Xadaganian female character model, and additions to crafting and the popular skirmish system.
A large list of improvements storms into Allods Online this month with a variety of user interface changes. Summon Astral ships instantly when entering the hanger, sort the Deposit Box at the click of a button with newly implemented sorting options, and gain instant access to abilities with the combined and re-ordered Action Bar. Quest Icons have also been introduced, letting users know which quests are repeatable, important, optional, or dungeon based. Plus support classes will find monitoring their party’s buffs and debuffs much easier with the new UI order, ranking each by duration and importance.
Allods Online is always improving its highly acclaimed and often stunning graphics, and this fall the Xadaganian female takes the spotlight with a complete visual makeover. A gorgeous new character model has been created, complete with improved animations, several new hair styles, and a brand new face to choose from. Check out the latest developer diary to get an inside look at the motion capture and voice-over process performed by Nataliya Zemtsova, actress from the popular Russian TV sitcom “The Eighties.”
Autumn Wind holds much more in store though for players eagerly awaiting new in-game content. Allod’s previous expansion, New Horizons, merged the engaging but often confused alchemy and herbalism crafts into a single trade. Now this latest patch is continuing to rework and balance crafting, benefiting character professions all around. Plus PvP enthusiasts will be excited to learn about Summerhold – a thrillingnew skirmish!
