    [​IMG]A major update for Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones will release December 19th.

    Major Update will be out on December 19th!

    Greetings Brethren!

    We know that you've been waiting for the final ritual that will alleviate "Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones" like the sunken city of R'lyeh rising from the depths of the oceans.

    This blackest event will occur on the 19th of this month. At the time of the accursed Yuletide festival, you, the owners of Stygian, will be downloading the brand new Patch 1.1. Before discussing more about what will be fixed and improved with this event of celestial importance, we have some announcements to make.

    Be warned! Only your latest Autosave and Story Save slots will be preserved by the new save system which enables Character Profiles and manual saving functionality. You better get prepared!

    For the sake of stability and general balancing, we have removed Spell Enhancements from the upcoming build. The final scope of the game was making the enhanced spells either overpowered or unachievable. We also wanted to eliminate the bugs connected to the system. We will consider the re-implementation of the system again in the future.

    The following achievements will become obsolete with the release of 1.1 Update:
    • Spell Doctor
    • Surgeon
    • Martyr
    Without further ado, here's a list of New Features and Major Overhauls that will be present in 1.1:
    • A Tutorial System that explains all the core and subsidiary systems of the game.
    • Considerably increased Combat Speed
    • Character Profiles
    • Manual Saving and Quick Saving
    • Combat Hit Probability Indicator to screen your to hit chance in battle scenarios
    Along with hundreds of Bug Fixes and Improvements including issues encountered in problematic areas such as Blasted Street, Ward 10, a variety of crashes, situations carried in between different save files, Panic State malfunctions, Light and Darkness mechanics, Rest and Crafting Mechanics, Perk and Item functionality and much more!

    As you can see, we haven't been resting. Instead, we've prayed to the Old Ones, day and night in all the forgotten, old tongues and cried out for a better, smoother Stygian experience. We also worked. Really hard...

    Until we meet again in a desolate corner of the doomed Arkham on 19th of December.

    Team Cultic
