Official Site Update: Kaon Under Siege and New Screenshots from 1.1!

Well, it appears Friday Updates aren’t as dead as they seemed!

First we have an update on the new Flashpoint, Kaon Under Siege, which includes some of the story about it in addition to the video from yesterday:

Kaon, a small world in the Tion Hegemony, is under siege. An outbreak of the Rakghoul plague has killed countless citizens while turning others into twisted monsters. In the midst of this chaos a small group of survivors have been able to fend off the Rakghouls, but their time is running out. Watch as a Republic assault team makes their way through Kaon, fighting waves of Rakghouls to find the survivors and learn the cause of the outbreak.

Additionally, we were able to secure some new screenshots of the flashpoint! See them below; the flashpoint definitely has a haunting feel, and I, for one, cannot wait to play it.

  1. I never thought I would say this with regards to content updates as I loved how aggressive RIFT was with their updates. But, I really wish they would fix Eternity Vault before bringing out new group based content. Eternity Vault is almost unplayable at times due to bugs.

  2. I agree to some extent. Without knowing if this patch fixes those bugs, it’s hard to judge it though.
    My concern is pacing. At the launch of anything what you do the first few months sets the tone of whats expected going forward. So they either need to take some time between updates or expect people to expect really frequent updates.

    Regradless, it will be interesting to watch

    • Your concerns about pacing are reasonable, but from what Ohlsen says, they are really planning to add new content regularly and often. After all they have to compete with WoW and it’s seven-year-headstart with content.

    • They said the next big update comes March which includes things like legacy and guild system additions. Sounds to me like they plan on keeping pace.
