The Dragon Gods Are Upon Us
Class revamps, tutorial improvements and more!


It’s been widely discussed for a long time, but the mastery update is finally here! However that’s not everything, with this update we’ll bring you loads of new content to explore!

So far you’ve managed to survive all challenges Auratia has managed to throw at you. However, for this major content patch, we’re doing things differently! With the upcoming patches we’ll focus on the social side of the game; the way new players will be introduced to the game, a new mastery system and much more!

Tutorial improvement
To accommodate new players, we gave the starter region a unique revamp. We felt like the design of our starter region was slightly lacking and did not cover the basics as well as we originally intended. To go along with this, we added and altered parts of the game hints. We hope that with these changes it will be easier for new players to get to know the game and eventually integrate better at later stages of the game.

Mastery Improvements
In the new Mastery System in Dragon‘s Prophet, your characters can learn new masteries and skills. All four character classes now have unique masteries, which can help you gradually specialize into a role. From passive buffs to active attacks, the further you progress in the game, the more masteries you’ll unlock.

Treasure Hunt System
Want to go out hunting some treasures with your friends but fear you may never find them? No problem! Artecia will now have Ancient Book stores where you will be able to find clues. These clues will lead you to a place in the world where you will be able to find an “Encrypted Treasure Chest”. Of course this chest is hidden; it’s a hunt after all! You will be able to open these chests by crafting a key or by completing a special mini game!

Quest Rewards
We’d like to make sure that questing is a fun experience, not just something that you will have to put up with until you eventually hit your level cap. To assist you in your travels, main story quests will now have purple quality gear for you upon completion. This should actually make you feel like you just completed a part of your character’s story and of course, it will help you to slay your foes even swifter!

UI Improvements
One of our goals for this patch is to let new players learn our game faster and transition easier. We’re adding some extra mini-map features, a quick-swap button that allows you to quickly change your equipment, an unstuck button in the Character Selection Interface and a new player frame effect that will only display when you’re in combat.

For a more detailed look on the Dragon God Mastery Update, make sure to check out our overview for the new masteries here.

Hi everyone!


Touching base
Hope all of you is having a great summer!
We just wanted to touch base after almost 2 months of Among the Sleep out in the stores. It’s been a very rewarding and exciting experience for everybody here at Krillbite!

Some of you have been asking about Patch 1.2.0 and when it would be possible to get your hands on it. We've been hard at work, and it's finally ready. People should expect an auto-update pretty soon. Among other things, you can find a lot of bug fixes, with the addition of 5.1 audio support and depth of field for better visual fidelity. Keep sending us bug reports with dxdiag and log files.

Also, after coming from the intense launch-sprint the team has had a much needed break for the last 2-3 weeks. When everyone is back we'll get working full speed on the upcoming DLC for Among the Sleep, which should be expected this fall!


Some other news!


  • Among the Sleep would never have existed if it wasn't for our lovely Kickstarter backers. Kickstarter have recently launched a Play Now area, where you can find released games funded by Kickstarter!
  • We recently attended the Develop conference in Brighton, UK. Bjørnar & Martin were there to showcase the game after being shortlisted for the Indie Dev showcase!
  • Among the Sleep has currently sold more than 30.000 copies across all channels, which means we'll be able to keep deliver new and exciting projects for you to play in the future! This is incredible and we want to thank all of you!

This update fixes specific problems playing on Windows: the time played was not being counted, and Retrobooster was launching in the background in Big Picture Mode. After updating, these behaviors should be fixed.

There are also some tiny improvements to game controller menu input and some sound fx. And a small bug was fixed that you probably never encountered because it was very rare.

A new server build is available for server hosts with quite a lot of fixes and some changes based on bugs and problems users have found over the last couple of days. Thanks for taking the time to report them. With the influx of people a lot of bugs I'd never seen before popped up. But luckily with the help of quite a few dedicated community members, a lot of the pretty tricky bugs are fixed.

The client patches have been automatically rolled out via Steam and the Sky Nations launcher. Pretty much as they were done.

The new server build can be downloaded from here:
http://skynations.net/?page=download

I'm going to carry on powering through the bugs that have come up, then we should back to the normal update schedule.

Changes
  • Merch Cat will no longer wander very far out of Systems.
  • Custom items no longer appear in chat with links.

Fixes

  • Fixed ship controls being active while typing in chat.
  • Fixed Ships not saving their protection status.
  • Fixed Jump Explosion effect appearing in the wrong position(0,0,0 instead ships previous position).
  • Fixed Linking process for existing users or new users possibly being borked if they close the game during or suffer some sort of PC shutdown or something happened to bork their cloud saves.
  • Fixed a stack overflow caused by Magmasites chain explosions.
  • Fixed killing yourself counting towards playing kills.
  • Fixed players with usernames involving special characters crashing client.
  • Fixed players with certain characters making them unable to be saved by the server.

  • Fixed Nation invites being broken in some cases.

  • Fixed some memory issues by restraining how many meshes can be queued for generation at once.

UPDATE from Brad Logston, Senior Producer of the Dungeon Defenders Franchise:

Hey Defenders. We have just enabled Single Player and Private Sessions to Dungeon Defenders Eternity tonight.

Turning off Single Player/Private match in our initial release of Eternity was related to our fear that the server costs would be exponential, and cause us to lose significant money. We realize that jeopardizing the loyalty of fans far outweighs the risk of profit - and it was a mistake.

Player hacking was the biggest reported problem on the original Dungeon Defenders. To ensure players aren’t cheating in Dungeon Defenders Eternity, and for our future release of Dungeon Defenders II, we needed to create a connected, always online service hosted in a secure environment. This isn’t about DRM. We want to help players have positive experiences in our games where legitimate time and effort is rewarded and cheaters can’t negatively impact everyone else.

You are our fans. As the posts and threads have ramped up today, we jumped into meetings to figure out what’s the best choice for you. Our plan was to enable Single Player/Private Games once we had a chance to observe our server costs and analytics. Today threw that delay out the window, so our team worked diligently throughout the morning and afternoon to re-enable the feature. That patch is now live, and combined with improvements to our matchmaking service, players should be able to access Single Player/Private games right now.

When it’s all said and done, we’re truly grateful for all your feedback. We’ve been building Dungeon Defenders 2 directly with our Defense Council for many months, and as many will attest, we constantly make changes based on their influence. We make the same covenant with you on Eternity, and promise we’ll keep working and updating our games to provide a fun, positive, exciting experience.

Thanks for being such passionate fans and expect more fixes and changes in the coming days. In the meantime, please continue to provide us your feedback and we’ll keep listening.

Cheers!
Brad Logston

Old Post:

After updating, you will now be able to play in private sessions. Simply click the "Host private session" in the play menu. While hosting a session you can invite your friends through playverse to join your game or you can play by yourself. You can also create a party through playverse and kick off a private session to play just with your party.
