Things moved along just fine initially, but as you probably noticed, it got really quiet the last couple of months and progress on the game was slow. But we won't go into detail about the reasons for that, we would rather like to talk about the headway we're making again. The WoP members are back at work and there has been lots of activity during the last weeks.
We resolved to get a new version done 'till December, around Christmas would be a nice release date. We are heading for beta tests in November. Please don't throw any stones as us, but the next version to be released will be 1.5 and not 2.0. To make progress we had to cut a big feature ... the the single player! We already had started working on it and there already is a completely new map, two new player models and a lot more, but our plans kept growing and the whole thing got too complex. Because of the single player the whole project could take another year of development and that ist just too long for us. So finally we decided to focus on more important stuff. After the release of 1.5 we will have a look at it again.
So now, let's get to the juicy parts and talk about what the new version will look like in detail, since we don't want to keep you guessing any longer. Here is a small incomplete list of the features of WoP 1.5:
and much more ...
Hopefully you'll see that we really weren't idle, just slow. The details might change still. It's possible that there'll be more content especially concerning the maps.
