Studio Addressing Community Requests and Further Optimizing Specs to Make the Game Even Better

GOTLAND, SWEDEN – October 17, 2013 – ThreeGates, an independent game development studio focused on Action Role-Playing Games, today released a second update for Legends of Aethereus, a co-op action RPG (http://store.steampowered.com/app/248410/). The game is currently live and the studio is updating the game to lower the hardware requirements, optimize the title for lower spec PCs and make it so players have the best experience possible while experiencing the unique combat and deep crafting systems.

"Some members of the community have not been able to experience the game as we intended and we are working hard to make sure they can enjoy the game as much as they should,” said Don Geyer, CEO of ThreeGates. “Legends of Aethereus is trying to do some very different things within the RPG genre in terms of combat and crafting. We know that the community will appreciate the update, which is the first of many, and also understand that RPG fans will be interested in experiencing something very different than other games they have played before. We welcome feedback on the forums and are already working on the next update which will improve upon what we’re delivering today.”
