Shadowbane 3.0 Update Info
11:53 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Players of the massively multiplayer RPG Shadowbane will be happy to see that the latest info on the upcoming 3.0 patch has been posted. The new patch will offer a slew of new features, and the latest post explains some of these along with the new story.

Here's info on a new resource system:

Shadowbane will be unveiling the first phase of its long awaited "Resource System". This system will be tied to each zone which will offer a resource type. Currently, the only resource in Phase One is gold but further phases may include additional resources such as wood, metals, and ores. It is designed to add smaller, auxiliary points of conflict for players to fight over. These areas will become highly contested points of interest and will have the opportunity to change hands at least once a day.

In Phase One, once conquered, gold mines will drop gold into warehouses in their cities on an hourly basis. This gold will, in turn, be used to automatically pay maintenance cost of those structures that were given access to the warehouse and are protected by the Runemaster. Additional resources and augmentations will be introduced as the system is fully implemented allowing players to upgrade existing and new assets with functions and abilities to be announced. Furthermore after Phase One is completed, during a siege, the warehouse inventory can be recovered or stolen by anyone. This system will allow nations to focus efforts more on the political and combat phases of a siege and not the maintenance and upkeep of cities.
