Greetings Citizens of Aria!

Legends of Aria has been officially live in Early Access for just over a week. Tens of thousands of you have set foot in Aria and our numbers continue to grow!

Our team has been hard at work knocking out stability issues and major bugs. We have released a number of hotfixes since launch that addressed these problems. If you haven't yet claimed a home for yourself on Celador, there is no better time than now!

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you who have joined us for this launch, and would like to give you an internal update on our progress and what to expect in the coming months.

Helm is a popular choice for journeyman blacksmiths because of its proximity to a mine.

Launch Growing Pains

As with any major launch of a product in Early Access, there were a few bumps along the way. We were met with an issue concerning our data synchronization right out of the gate resulting in a temporary loss of service. Our team worked tirelessly in addressing this issue and we can successfully report that this has been dealt with and is behind us. Some of the major issues addressed:

  • Players losing karma from indirect actions
  • Guild formation and guild chat is now working as intended
  • Neutral guards now only attack provokers
  • Added confirmation to portal travel to wilderness areas 

We'll continue to promptly tackle smaller bugs, glitches and we have already begun preparing some quality of life and gameplay improvements which many of you have suggested to us.

With respects to our In-Game Reward System, notably Founder Rewards and Kickstarter Rewards, we are working on fixes to the underlying system to make sure everyone gets their outstanding physical items and titles.

We want to say a big thank you to everyone for their patience and for their support  whilst we addressed these issues! We're achieving big things with a small team and it's thanks to the community - we very much appreciate you!

A Glimpse Into the Future

With launch out of the way we're already looking towards our first major content update for Legends of Aria which we're tentatively calling the Frozen Tundra patch.

The Frozen Tundra is a foreboding land of snow, ice and peril. Not only will this patch work towards completing the Celador map, it is also our first step towards completing the vision that is Legends of Aria - we've only just started to form our sandbox and we have much more in store. We look forward to releasing more details in the coming weeks.


Our Project Lead Derek 'Supreem' Brinkmann and Producer Jeffrey 'Miphon' Edwards participated in an AMA on the MMORPG Subreddit.
