First person action featuring the Viking Gestir class coming in 2.3 Due for release in December!

Posted by Crazytalk on Nov 17th, 2009

Greetings! Today we unveil the first gameplay footage from 2.3, due for release in December. The footage features first-person Gestir action, the new class joining the Viking team.

In the footage you also see a quick preview of te_sandstorm. te_sandstorm is a three-territory map based loosely on the old pvk_desertruin and being worked on by myself and Jahhur. More information and media will be available on that in the future!

In case you missed last week's post, be sure to check out the Full 2.3 Change Log!

Stay tuned for more media and information on 2.3 as we ready ourselves for release.

"Significantly reduced the push back from stuns so it can't be used for jumping out of melee range anymore"

that's just perfect, thats why i dont parry much since the one attacking close to allways would just kill me, when i tried to parry and swing.

All the other media (screenshots) looked really good and in the video looks kinda boring to me. Great work will need to see when it's released.

I see you have a new knight texture, the knights now wear tabards. Neat.

Jeese you don't have to vote me down in Karma, I'm not completely wrong. I saw the new purple tabards and I thought they never had them before so I looked into old screenshots and they did have tabards just red ones instead. They must have matched so well I didn't notice them nearly as much.
