On the Embers Adrift forums today, there was a press release that looked back at the first four months of the game and gave a roadmap of what's ahead for 2023. New zones, monsters, and features were highlighted, but of course, that's not why we're here.

The game is now a little cheaper to get into if you're interested. The box price has an extended discount and is now $29.99 (previously $39.99), which includes a month of game time. Monthly subscriptions have been lowered to $9.99.

Embers Adrift prides itself on no cash shop or additional monetization in its game other than the box price and sub, and features a more old-school MMORPG-type experience. This price move is an effort to attract players who have so many options in the MMORPG genre and hopefully allows the team to continue "to avoid other forms of monetization in our game" and allow the devs to create content players love rather than "running a digital storefront."

They're also dropping a patch on February 28th which features a new zone called Grimstone Canyon, 8 new long form quests, UI improvements, Chat functionality improvements, storage increases, new monsters, performance updates, and more.

You can read the full update on the official forums and if you're interested in the game you can pick it up from the online store on their site.
