PotBS - Preview of Patch 1.2 @ WarCry
WarCry has had the opportunity to get a preview of Patch 1.2, which will be released to the servers tomorrow. Some of the main aspects of the patch are:
"[Patch] 1.2 is the sum total of all the content that the art and mission design teams have been working on since we froze for the gold master in November, so we have quite a bit of stuff in it," Ludwig explained. In addition to ongoing bug fixes and game balance tweaks, 1.2 contains new zones and missions that appeal to novices and veterans alike. Perhaps the most notable change is to Pointe-à-Pitre, the French capital city. Pointe-à-Pitre sees a complete overhaul in Patch 1.2 that allows it to stand out from other French ports.
"The second biggest thing in the 1.2 content update is 'Bey's Retreat,' which is an epic mission," said Ludwig. "Basically, a really hard, really long group-oriented mission," The mission is available at Rank 25, but scales so as to remain a challenge to players of all ranks. Expect to take a full group of minimum Rank 25 players with you and make sure you allow a considerable chunk of time to complete the encounter. "Bey's Retreat" will subject players to wave after wave of enemy ships, multiple bosses and loot that will be attractive to even Rank 50 players.
