TwoKinds Online - New Combat

Posted by judah4 on July 24, 2021 Twokinds Game update patch combat

Hi everyone, big changes to combat! Other changes include NPC factions, animation system overhaul, and more! Due to time constraints, this is part one of the combat series updates.

Changes

Combat

Melee combat has been completely redone! Tons of adjustments have been made so the experience should be a lot smoother. Due to the time constraints, this will be part one of the combat updates, soon to be followed by Bows/Ranged weapons, blocking, and improved AI combat tactics.

 

NPCs will now show relative power levels in their name tags. Normally the information is hidden but can be viewed by holding ALT. Name tags for NPCs will also show basic health information that will increase in detail with the skill Physiology.

Foxes and rabbits are now easier to hunt and no longer will attack on sight. Beware of butterflies though, they are violent.

Sprint

Movement has been changed and there is now a sprint button! Sprinting uses stamina and can be used to break from combat or faster world traversal.

Factions

Npcs are now split into more factions than just violent and nonviolent. Foxes will no longer attack immediately. Town people now react and attack back if they are hit. They will no longer just stand idly and embrace death but will fight back.

Dances

New dances! Up to 4 available dances now.

Guild Chat

Guild chat is now available using Vivox. We are liking Vivox so far and will use it for party chat and friend whispers in the future.

Playtest Changes

We are switching to the Steam playtest feature for testing access instead of grabbing a Steam Key from the website. Make sure to request access on the Steam Store page and don't forget to wishlist!

We are also adding some Steam achievements unique to the playtest game, so make sure to get them if you are an achievement hunter. We don't plan on revoking access to the unreleased game if you used a Steam key but we recommend switching to the Playtest on Steam.

End of Discord Game Updates

We are ending support of playing the game through Discord. With the end of the Discord Store years ago and other things, we are focusing on Steam as our main platform to play. The Discord version will not be getting any more updates so make sure to switch to the Steam playtest.

Up Next

We are really excited for what's coming next. We are very busy working on bows, new content, new enemies to fight, and of course always more! Thank you for being on this adventure with us.
