With our Slaughter Land preview video, and a handful of Dev Play Days featuring new screenshots of updated POIs like the Oasis and Outlaw’s End, the fires of our March patch are sufficiently stoked.

The future of Fractured Lands is ever-changing, and since going into our newest roadmap changes, adding Deathmatch, new POIs, new weapons, and various optimizations, we’ve turned a corner on our development for the 1.0 Sandbox. We’ll be spending the next couple months on focused development towards that goal and hope to have some surprises in store for the next patch to come. Likewise, we’ll be using that time to show off some of our work, so look forward to the previews and be sure to send us your feedback along the way!

Lastly, look forward to the return of Dev Play Days at its regular schedule next week and a few promotions involving STORMRIDERS, special guests, and fun events!

Heavens’ on fire, needle’s in the red, flames getting higher, goin’ over the edge!
