Riders of Icarus players will have noticed by now that things have been a bit slow this past year in the realm of content updates. Well, it looks like that is about to come to an end as the “ICARUS Planning Team” took over the most recent dev blog to lay out their plans for the rest of 2018.

The list of things being done starts with the introduction of a new type of merchant that offers materials for crafting Inheritance Equipment, the MacBain Merchants. These merchants are set to be in the game by the time they posted the dev blog. So we won’t spend more words on them as you can already check them out.

Also included in the laundry list are improving the Tempering System (to make things easier on the players) and preparations for a World Cup Event. This event will celebrate the Russian World Cup.

As for larger projects, the RoI dev team plans to open a new region up for players and add a new mode to another. The new region, Turimnan, has already been released in Korea and apparently hasn’t fared that well. So, the dev team has noted that once it hits western servers it will have been improved upon. Plans are to release it in August, but that is a bit tentative.

The new mode mentioned above is for Ellora’s Spire. Currently a party mode is in the works. Once launched 1-3 people can party up. Of course, the more people in the party, the better the rewards. No date was specified for when this will be available, so we’ll just have to wait.

If you’re interested in seeing what the new region and mode will look like, the RoI team filled the Dev Blog with a bunch of pictures you’ll want to check out.

  1. i used to play this game on a i7 870 with a gtx 660, game ran smooth with no overheating. Some games do have problem with specific CPUs, most of the time running ccleaner+restarting fixes it for me.

        • Even though you are kind of right, Sin, you are wrong. Yes, some games are hitting your CPU harder than GPU and the opposite, but at maximum usage you shouldnt hit 100C no matter what. Overheating might be caused by bad optimization, but not the way you seem to think. It will just make the CPU increase its usage. If you hit 100% usage and you also hit 100C then you should consider checking the cooling of the PC, if its not OCed that is. If its OCed then things are getting a bit more complicated.

        • The thing is , if your CPU overheats at 100 % usage for example , it will throttle down its multiplier to bring the temps down , so you will start to get nasty shuttering cos your fps will be fluctuating quite a bit .

  2. Oh yea and the optimization is like really bad.
    My i5 6600k had 100 °C (212°F) all the time.
    Do not play the game unless you want to try your PC

  3. I did play on beta and stop on release because of the optimization, and after so much time the game still has a really bad optimization =( sad…
