Recently, Wargaming and Mad Head Games announced that Pagan Online, a hack-and-slash action RPG, will be exiting Steam’s Early Access on August 27.
At its launch, the game will include new updates and revamped systems due to player feedback. It will also include a full campaign with eight acts, two new bosses, and new zones and maps. Click-to-move controls and full controller support has been added, so players can play how they desire. Two new playable characters have been added as well: Elden, an ice construct with a high attack speed that is capable of slowing down and freezing enemies with each attack, and Hector, who can use a blunderbuss and other trickery to set the battlefield on fire.
Some Legendary Weapons will be upgradable to fabled, which allows players to overcome Pagan Online’s toughest battles. Accordingly, ultra-rare gear sets that both boost stats and provide cool new looks will be added to the game, as have revamped crafting and loot drop systems. All-new skill trees have also been added, so players can create new heroes by improving, modifying, and unlocking new abilities.
“Since we began closed alpha testing 10 months ago, Pagan Online has been constantly evolving with the help of our players,” said Uros Banjesevic, Chief Creative Officer of Mad Head Games. “During our 4 month run in Early Access we have implemented massive changes and amazing new features and mechanics to deliver the best possible 1.0 experience at full launch. It is going to be, literally, a different game.”
