Broken Ranks' Updated Roadmap Plans For Reformed PvP System, PvE Balancing, New Mechanics, And More This Year
The devs also have new content in mind for the first two quarters of 2023 alongside mobile closed betas.
Broken Ranks, the isometric turn-based MMORPG by Whitemoon Games, has released an updated roadmap for this year and preliminary plans for 2023. For 2022, players can expect several balancing changes for PvE professions, a reformed PvP system, improved gear, and new mechanics. However, Whitemoon's switch in priority to optimize the game has postponed the guild update. As of now, next year's patches are determined to continue the main plot, include new mid- and high-level instances, and likely debut closed beta tests for the mobile version of Broken Ranks.
Whitemoon Games Studio Founder Krzysztof Danilewicz announced the 2022-23 roadmap update through a dev blog today with a detailed infographic, noting that his team aims to "set new priorities" and focus on "balancing issues" in Broken Ranks.
The devs will reform the PvP system to make it more engaging for newcomers and veterans, rebalance PvE professions - first the barbarian and knight classes others receiving changes later - and unique gear more useful at given level ranges. Of course, there will be tweaks to instances, content, and so on to match the adjustments. Although, this plan does set back the guild update, which includes guild war implementation, and moves newer epic items from its planned fourth quarter release to early 2023.
For the next year, the devs are already thinking up some brand-new content, activities, and functionalities that could come to Broken Ranks, mainly challenging instances and continuing the storyline. These ideas span into the first two quarters of 2023, such as a new zone called Thalia and plenty of reworking and fixing relating to player feedback. Also, for those interested, Whitemoon is slowly prepping for mobile closed beta tests and will keep players updated on when they will become available.
With quite a lot of content on the table and a seemingly good track record of following roadmaps, Broken Ranks could see tons of improvement by summertime next year.
