Portalarium’s upcoming MMO Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues will soon let players install the game and create new characters it seems, as the company begins to introduce the crowd-sourcing elements it promised in its Kickstarter campaign.
As Polygon notes, Portalarium’s Executive Producer Starr Long explained the release schedule to backers on the official forums – the first early access opportunity will take place from December 12th to 14th, allowing backers to install Shroud of the Avatar, create new characters, claim and decorate a house and test the first town.
The second release will take place from January 24th – 26th and will add crafting, shopping and character customisation. The third will occur from February 20th to 22nd and add in multiplayer (as opposed to the persistent single player available in prior releases) and the fourth release will take place from March 20th, and add in sweet, sweet combat and magic. For more details check out the thread on the official forums – it seems like a pretty tightly packed schedule, but given Shroud of the Avatar‘s progress so far it doesn’t seem out of reach.
