Following last week’s bit of ‘Schrodinger’s Bless’ kerfuffle, MMORPG sat down with the company’s Director of Game Launches Jérôme Nguyen Van Long for a brief interview. They covered why we haven’t heard too much about the game’s progress — blame the merger process, how much longer players will have to wait to get their hands on the English version, and how the Russian release will impact the English one.
Overall, the answers were pretty much of the “nothing to say yet” variety. What we do know is that Aeria Game is pretty pleased with the progress they’re making so far. We also now know that the company wants the cash shop to be optional:
“Facing a paywall to progress on your journey is definitely a terrible experience. We want to have a seamless experience for all players. The cash shop should be optional, only offering convenience and vanity items to the players who use it.”
That’s great news for players if implemented as described here. But of course, we’ll have to wait and see. Hopefully, we’ll be able to find out sooner rather than later.
