Ether Saga Odyssey Exclusive Interview
Ether Saga is relaunching as Odyssey and sporting a consequent number of changes, including a new graphics engine, additional races and more content overall. We wanted to know more about it and here are our findings.
MMOBomb.com: Can you introduce yourself and your role in Ether Saga Odyssey?
Hi, I’m Aaron Potter, the Product Manager for Ether Saga Odyssey. Among other tasks, my main priority is to ensure that the game is running smoothly on a daily basis. I also work closely with the community manager to ensure that our users are informed about our game and fully experience all the exciting features that Ether Saga Odyssey has to offer.
MMOBomb.com: What is exactly Ether Saga Odyssey and what does it mean for regular players of Ether Saga Online?
Ether Saga Odyssey is the new chapter in the Ether Saga story and introduces players to the next chapter of Ether Saga Online. Known for its robust pet training system, there will be even more pets to capture, a plethora of new content, and a new player experience. Players will also get to collect monster cards and transform into monsters, while gaining access to new attributes and skills.
Existing players can still continue with their existing characters, pets, and items. While their characters are left intact, the world around them has evolved quite a bit. For new and existing players alike, there has never been a better time to play ESO.
MMOBomb.com: Why did you decide to offer players such a large update instead of regularly releasing the new content?
Although we released updates to the game in the past, nothing remotely comes close to the changes that Odyssey brings. With Odyssey, we really wanted to emphasize that ESO has evolved and taken the next step to keep up with the times.
MMOBomb.com: Can you describe some of the changes that Odyssey brings?
In direct response to player feedback, Odyssey features a new and improved user interface with auto-route feature and additional visual aids. While adding more character customization options, the game developers have completely upgraded the game engine to fully support the new graphics highlighting the new and vast areas for players to explore such as the main city, Pokari City, the evolving hometowns of the races in the game, as well as a new area featuring even more challenging monsters just for experienced players.
With a new chapter in the story, Ether Saga Odyssey also features four distinct races with eight unique classes. The new Mogui race brings two new classes to the mix, the Hellion and Maven, which has varying gameplay styles.
MMOBomb.com: Are you introducing new pets, and how many?
Most definitely and even new monsters to fight in the wild! One of the most interesting features of the game is that many of the monsters you fight in the wild can be captured and tamed to battle alongside as your pet. The pet training system will feature hundreds of pets for players to summon and train and create stronger breeds with new abilities, while battling alongside epic monsters.
MMOBomb.com: How is the community reacting to the modifications and additions you announced?
We want to thank our players for the support they’ve shown while waiting for Ether Saga Odyssey to launch. We’re seeing a lot of new players and always value the feedback that our fans provide, in order to continue to provide players with high quality, free to play games.
