Major Update Marks AdventureQuest 3D Official Launch In October

adventurequest 3d facesAfter nearly a year in open beta, cross-platform MMORPG AdventureQuest 3D will finally launch on Friday, October 13, 2017. It’s an ominous date I know, but I’d expect nothing less from the quirky team of developers over at Artix Entertainment.

Prior to the game’s official release, the team will be giving the game’s interface, characters, and art a massive overhaul. Artix Entertainment Founder Adam “Artix Krieger” Bohn writes:

“AdventureQuest 3D's OPEN BETA will undergo one final massive round of interface, character, and art improvements before going live on Friday the 13th, this October 2017. . . A major goal of the game is to make the characters as expressive as possible, with as much customization as possible on mobile devices. Our ultimate plan is for you to set your characters default idle stance, facial expression and have your character change expression in and out of battle. Our current alien-esque female faces have gotten us a lot of flak... and we really needed to improve them before undergoing the massive amount of work we are eager to put into this.”

The team also plans to make characters look more “friendly”. “I strongly feel that characters that are "out of combat" should have a friendly yet determined look,” Artix writes. “Some of the governing pillars of Artix Entertainment games is hope, friendliness, and giant vicious fanged man-eating monsters. We are still working on this... but getting closer.”

Take a peek at what the game currently looks like in AdventureQuest 3D’s latest expansion trailer which you’ll find after the break. You can also check out the full article in the official AdventureQuest 3D site.
