NextGenBooks.com has today announced that, following a huge response to Warrior Quest’s launch, the game has received its first major update. Adding new and improved functionality to the original game engine, the new build of the game features an optimized battle engine, and new areas to explore, adding a roster of characters to meet and interact with. This update is the first stage in adding non-combat based quests to the game, and will be followed throughout March by further incremental additions to continue improving upon the adventure experience.
User response to Warrior Quest has been incredibly positive with many players suggesting ideas and improvements that have been incorporated into this update. explains site manager Ray Reid, We had no idea the response would be so large. Releasing this update ahead of schedule, and incorporating our player’s suggestions, was something we wanted to do as a thank you to our great player base.
Warrior Quest launched in 2008, an online RPG that has been optimized to run not only on PCs and Macs, but also on home consoles such as Wii and PS3. Since its launch, Warrior Quest has gathered a strong user base across all compatible formats, particularly the PS3 which has the largest console based audience playing this exciting online adventure. Little has been made of the PS3’s ability to play online games, up to this point, and the success of Warrior Quest on the system demonstrates that there is a strong demand for accessible and casual online gaming content for home videogame consoles that NextGenBooks.com is striving to provide.
In addition to tailoring Warrior Quest for home consoles, a PSP compatible version is also being developed, tentatively scheduled for release by the end of March. Further updates to Warrior Quest are also being developed with a view to releasing at least one major update a month and incremental updates on a weekly basis.
