Once again Heroes of a Broken Land has been updated and now downloadable.
Upated builds should be available on Desura and GamersGate “soon”
What’s new in Beta 4.0?
- Game now downloads new versions automatically (full auto-patching still TODO)
- Fix Spell Focus and Healing Prayer skills to properly boost damage/healing
- Event system upgrade – multi-stage events, world awareness (karma, danger levels, etc)
- Undead Hoards & Rat Plague Events added – quest spawing events
- Alchemist Huts can now be found on the world map
- Fix bug where reloading on turn 1 would give a new party
- Higher level recruits may now be from Elite classes
What’s coming next?
The event system upgrade should mean that games become more interesting and varies. I will be adding more world events as well as adding more detailed and complex events. The choices you make will have consequences, both short and long term.
I will start taking a second look at shops and trainers, balancing their prices and skill availability.
Plus I’m going to start filling in some basic missing functionality that I’ve been promising: keyboard customization and customizable portraits.
We’re getting closer and closer to the final 1.0!
