Arcane Arena Beta 5 Released
9:55 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Just slightly behind schedule, Freeverse Software has released another public beta version of their action-oriented online RPG. This title features an online, persistent world and bloodthirsty combat that bridges the gap between turn-based and realtime. And it is a Mac-first, Mac-only title!

Here is a list of changes and updates:

- Graphic for Elevator and it now only lets you go as deep as you've been
before. i.e. Time to take the stairs. :-)

- New Magic Armor store on level... 60.

- Improved Monster AI.

- More groundwork in place for Quests.

- Monsters will run and join existing battles. Ugh!

- Dozens of bug fixes!

It sounds as if many of the changes affect the "dungeon" area of the game, which seems to be growing in popularity. Grab the latest beta from the Arcane Arena web site and be sure to give the team feedback on your experience online.
