Skyforge Wants To Improve Console PvP Experience And Introduce Cross Platform Patching
Free to play MMORPG Skyforge released a producer’s letter toward the end of 2017 with some good news. Firstly, the game intends to introduce cross platform patches. This will address delay in content arrivals for players on various different platforms. Here’s a snippet from Producer Volker:
“One of the challenging topics for a game running on multiple platforms is to keep it up to date with the same version on all of them. This becomes especially complicated when platform are in different stages of live service and the player population is at a completely different level. Instead if focusing on creating exciting new content, developers need to spend a lot of time switching between different platform topics.
For 2018 we want to find ways to provide the big updates we have planned (so updates that introduce actual content and features, next to the usual bug fixing and monetisation updates) can be released on all platforms at the same time. This will mean that our development team can better focus on the content they are developing right now, rather than having to support three different content states. More focus will mean better content, fewer bugs and faster delivery. This is a goal we have set for ourselves, and we are excited to see how close we can get.”
In addition to that, the team also wants to improve the PvP experience for console players. They intend to address the feedback that PvP is unbalanced, uninteresting and uninspiring. It’s one of their major goals of 2018, and more updates will be released soon.
