The progress with the BETA version is coming amazingly. You should be able to expect in late September!
Followers (Update): There are now 4 Find able followers around the world all with there own unique classification and personality! They all have different classes and different weapons, with there own way of battle.
Free Roam (Update): This has taken a big step as I have made it so that you can completely ditch quests and just roam the world as please fighting as you please and what you please!
Plot twist: Two theorists have come to me already speculating that Captain Jack is going to die late in the story. This cannot currently be confirmed but if it happens trust me, there will be hints to it in later posts!
