Fans of Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen have been given an exciting glimpse into the future with the latest Producer’s Letter. As the game continues to develop in the second half of 2023, a number of changes to content delivery and ongoing development were revealed.
The creators of the popular MMORPG have decided to reassess and redefine the methods of presenting Pantheon’s progression. For July and August, some regular content features will be scaled back to create new assets and refine existing goals.
One major shift in communication is a pivot towards prioritizing Twitch live streaming for gameplay events or larger community-focused events. The move comes as the producers acknowledged that the extended length of previous live streams was difficult for a significant portion of the community to follow. To combat this, video updates will now be delivered via YouTube Premieres. This new approach aims to make content more concise, accessible, and community-oriented.
Additionally, Parting the Veil, an important source of key information about Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, is being reformatted into several short, pre-produced videos focused on a single topic released over the course of a month. The change aims to make important details easier to absorb while still inviting community interaction.
While recognizing these changes are significant, the team believes the quality and uniformity of content delivery will greatly improve, giving developers more time to focus on game development. After two months of preparation and adaptation, they aim to hit the ground running in September with improved assets and tools, enhancing their efficiency in content creation and overall content quality.
Despite these changes, the regular release of the Producer’s letter and community-driven articles will remain unaffected.
The Producer’s Letter also addressed the roadmap to Alpha, stating that it too would be reformatted. A new roadmap design will be unveiled in September, promising greater readability and additional information.
Further updates revealed in the Producer’s letter included an array of development highlights such as nearing completion of a meta design map tool, IT infrastructure changes for improved servers, forums, security and reliability, a significant overhaul of lighting and atmospherics, including the return of the in-house day/night system, and various character and model updates.
The changes outlined in this latest Producer’s Letter promise a future of continued development and improvement for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. Fans can look forward to more streamlined, accessible, and community-focused updates moving forward.
