Stormhaven Studios, the developer behind Embers Adrift, has shared their roadmap for 2024, detailing a series of planned updates and a notable new introduction to the game. The roadmap, shaped by player feedback, sets the direction for the upcoming year with a focus on enhancing gameplay, community engagement, and accessibility.
The roadmap for Embers Adrift outlines a series of updates, starting with the immediate introduction of a free trial. This trial aims to give new players a comprehensive taste of the game, including access to the first zone and dungeon, without any upfront payment. The goal is to broaden the game’s reach and provide an opportunity for more players to experience its content.
The new free trial feature, set to launch by the end of February, represents a significant step towards welcoming more players into the Embers Adrift community. It allows access to the first zone’s full content and the Central Veins dungeon, aiming to showcase the game’s solo and group play dynamics.
The roadmap also includes the recent launch of a Bulletin Board System, designed to improve the solo gameplay experience by offering tasks that reward experience and health regen buffs. This addition, along with the introduction of solo-able sections in Ember Veins, underscores the studio’s commitment to supporting both solo and group play styles.
In the short term, the studio is focusing on adding engaging activities like fishing and rolling out epic quests with unique weapon art. For the long term, the roadmap outlines ongoing development efforts to introduce new content and gameplay enhancements, with the team expressing eagerness to advance these projects as the year progresses.
