Welcome to another development update.
Community Challenge News
You’re on to the 8th day of the Community Challenge, around 57% through the allotted time, and you’re around 56% through the required kills. When we set out we wanted this to be somewhere between a ‘safe’ and ‘nail-biting’ challenge. Right now, however, we’re out of nails and we’re chewing on fingers.
We’re hoping this bonus length double XP weekend and the promise of a bonus triple XP day for completing the challenge is enough to tip the scales! Now get slaying! (but first, check out the rest of this Developer Update of course!)
Cosmetic in Concept
This week we want to show you a work in progress of a premium cosmetic item we’re working on. One of many, this hat is looking perfect for Huntsman Kruber. This concept is as mentioned a work in progress and can change during development, as well as sometimes work in progress items can be pulled from production for various reasons. But we wanted to share this with you!
We took inspiration for this unique item from an art book called ‘Blood on the Reik’. Tell us what you think? Would you want this in your Kruber wardrobe? Do you have the book and see any other inspirations you’d like us to take? Hit us up in the comments below!
Last week we featured some less traditional fan art here in the update, and this week we have seen a huge influx of more traditional creations by some of the hugely talented artists in the community and we’d like to take this opportunity to showcase some of those!
