Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem was launched earlier this year in rough condition, with many technical issues and some disproportionate gameplay causing a visually striking actionRPG. It’s been a while since developer Wolcen Studio provided game updates, but we’ve found that the studio has been working on the first part of a major gameplay and content update over the past few months.
Chronicle I: Bloodtrail is the first update available to all Wolfcen players completely free of charge, adding new gameplay changes, economic updates and content to the game. The update is said to be announced shortly after the announcement on Steam, and specific details about the patch are approaching release.
One of the changes that Wolcen Studio has made in detail is the upcoming splits that this update will create. All characters currently in Walsen will be marked as “legacy” and new characters will be associated with new content. Wolfen Studio will not allow players to exchange new characters for legacy characters, as the entire economy has been reworked, but will support legacy play through another legacy game mode that provides the same experience as before the patch.
Wolcen Studio has addressed critical bugs and performance issues with 17 patches since its release, but says it’s quietly observing player feedback while creating this new content.
“I’ve been preparing for Chronicle I: Bloodtrail for the last few months. I chose to stay silent, but I’ve heard feedback and used it to improve the gaming experience and improve Wolfen’s foundation.” Read the post.
However, there are many improvements to Bloodtrail, as revealed in GameSpot’s 4/10 Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem release review. “It has all the elements to become another immersive time sink, but it’s not done enough to make it worthwhile,” reads the review.
