It's free, it's open source and it's looking good! Veloren is a action-adventure role-playing game set in a vast fantasy world and a brand new release is out with update 0.16. The developers are still laying out the foundations of the game, so it's not a proper complete experience, but there's still plenty to do and try out. And this release adds plenty more.

Some of what's new includes:

  • New axe skill tree.
  • Two new dungeons, haniwa catacombs and terracotta ruins.
  • Some new structures: airship docs, taverns and desert arenas.
  • We got a cool new mesa biome, where the mountain towns are built now.
  • Caves got a really cool update, with new cave biomes, be sure to check them out!
  • We are finally using a new wgpu version which allows people to run the game using OpenGL.
  • Plugins have gotten updates and it's now supported for servers to have plugins which are shared with the client when joining.
  • Map generation UI for singleplayer in voxygen.
  • Many balancing changes.
  • New models and shader changes so the low level of detail terrain will look a lot better.
  • While gliding you can now encounter updrafts.

See more on the Veloren website.

The developers will be doing a special livestream for the release on March 30th on their YouTube.
