BFME: Reforged Update №3: Spellbook and New Forum


Dear companions, we are excited to share something with you at long last! We even struggled to name the new article properly, because there is so much new to show. The new spellbook of Isengard is an extremely complex interface structure which needed the involvement of not just digital artists, but even 3d artists, because as you can see, the origin of some of spellbook parts is a 3d modelling application.

The spells are essentially the same with a small exception of three new. The dragons were replaced by Lightning Storm spell which is something that many BFME II players may recognize, thought the power output of the storm is greatly enhanced in comparison to it's, sort of, predecessor. We've already revealed the mystery behind the Burning Engine spell in the article before this one, and in the newest video we show you the footage of this machine being used.


Yet the replacement for The Watcher summoning spell is a new, unique spell to Isengard, the effect of which is not to be revealed yet. Who knows, perhaps, some of our companions may have already guessed the idea.

At some point someone asked us a question about the appearance of upgrades, saying that mere yellowing or adding a glowing effect is not a very up-to-date thing. We are not entirely sure, if our approach is right, but we promise you that we will do anything to ensure the idea's successful and convenient implementation. The idea is to radically change the visual system and implement a much more realistic way of upgrading units with better armor.

The concept of this idea is simple: all units that can be upgraded with heavy armor leave the barracks in lighter armor and clothing, as shown on the concept art. But once upgraded, the units will drastically change in appearance instantly. It's an additional layer of tough leather armor in the case with Isengard warg riders.

And at long last we have a new forum! We hope that the old one will be soon all but forgotten and the new one greater than ever! Very simple to use and extremely fast to upload and navigate through, the new forum, we hope, will be a cool place for our growing community. What also matters is that the forum is now actively supported by the developers themselves, now everyone can ask us anything they want or just have a conversation, we don't bite.

With love,

Hello, 

i was going to donate some bucks today on this game, but then i saw the release date is not known yet. 

And even not a beta version is available. 

Can you let me know about those things? 

Thanks

Unfortunately yes, the release date is unknown due to a number of reasons.
