Hello there Celeste players! We are back with another Dev Blog.
This time, we will be having a look at some of the new additions to the game with tomorrow's patch!
2022 PvP/Skirmish Map Pack #1We are excited to announce that we have more than 10 entirely new random maps available to play in both PvP and Skirmish modes! Most of these maps were done by @RekiemOne and one of them (Grasslands) has been done by none other than RecoN. Read more about each map here:
In our most recent survey, one of the most requested features was having additional traveling shortcuts on the Quest Map, as traveling back and forth between so many different regions could become tedious at times. We have cleaned up the UI a little bit and added an expandable section to allow for more regions to be accessed quickly.
(PF2K's Personal Note: For the history enthusiasts out there, a Contubernium was a group of precisely 8 soldiers in the Roman army, which happens to be exactly the same number of Roman units you will find guarding this camp. Read more about it HERE)
For PvP, these maps will all be available in the Arena. For the Ranked Map Pool in Sparta, we are starting by adding a few of them to the map pool, and we will add or remove more maps based on players' feedback.
Extra Travel Shortcuts
UI ImprovementsOne of the things Project Celeste has improved upon in comparison to the original game is additional information via tooltips. We have added Armory Upgrade Icons on Unit Stat Tooltips, color-coded text in several places, and also loading screens for all maps in PvP mode, just to name a few examples. This time, we have added the cooldown and duration timers for all Celtic Rites. More importantly, we have added the ability to display the Build Time of each building based on the number of builders you have selected. Check the graphics below for more information.
The work on revamping Skirmish Hall continues on and we will be keeping you updated as we have more information to share.
Additionally, we are now going over the feedback from the survey and will post a follow-up blog on the results sometime around mid-February (or second half of February). We have far more responses than we expected, so it's going to take quite some time to go through everything. Thanks for being an awesome community!
Thanks for reading, and we look forward to reading know your thoughts and questions below!
All current and future content will stay 100% free and accessible to everyone.
