New Shadowbane Screens, Info
8:38 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

VoodooExtreme recently posted four new screen shots of the MMORPG Shadowbane to their site. They include three in-game shots and one character image. A quick update is also available from the game's producer Todd "Warden" Coleman and VP Patrick "Varios" Blanton to explain the new features being shown off by the images. A quick update is also given on the status of their second beta phase now underway at Wolfpack. Here's a clip:

"Some of the key features you can see in these screenshots include new environmental and graphical effects (like the new sun and secondary cloud layer, and multitextured terrain.) The detail of the terrain has also been upped to four times what it was in the phase 2 beta client, and the new terrain shadowing is really starting to pay off." - Patrick "Varios" Blanton, VP of Product Design


(the "terrain" screen shot I included just for this reason.)


Phase 2 beta is progressing nicely, as well, and roughly half of the people involved are actually connecting internationally... which also means, of course, that the beta server is populated pretty much 24x7.

We're watching Shadowbane's progress very closely, as it will be the first of the next-gen 3D MMORPGs to make it to the Mac. It is hoped the game could be released towards the end of the year, but specifics are unavailable at this point. We'll keep you posted on any changes in the game's status.
