New Player Experience (NPE)

We've expanded our NPE to ensure players are confident with the key game systems, while introducing the lore that connects players to the world.  We've also combined God's Reach and the Infected into one world to create a smoother transition between those worlds for new players and ensure you get off to a strong start in Crowfall.

Voice Chat

Connecting with guildmates and those “in your Murder” is easy using the new voice chat interface available in-game. Also, the voice chat is a great tool for new players to use to reach out and connect more easily to veteran players when in need of support and advice while playing. A great feature bringing Crows closer together for camaraderie and competition.  See below for more information. 

Hot Zones

Introduces an active alert system in a campaign to drive awareness among those active on the map to high-value emergent activities. These events offer exciting competitive play and high-value rewards - double loot or double rewards - guaranteeing that if you respond you’ll be glad you did! These events will be visible on the map and will erupt every few hours! When a hot zone parcel is active, the NPC present on that parcel will drop double the amount of loot. If the creature can be skinned, then the skinnable objects will provide double the loot as well.

Razer Chroma Integration

ArtCraft has partnered with Razer on the integration of Razer’s top-end Chroma series RGB support for Chroma-enabled gaming peripherals. These cutting-edge gaming products offer Crowfall players a more immersive way to capture the throne, with color sequences triggered by in-game powers, and includes native support for Razer’s most advanced gaming mice, the Naga Pro—with up to 16 buttons. 

Chicken Ticker Removed

With the next Crowfall release, we are going to see the removal of what is known as the “Chicken Ticker”. The value and unique benefits of food in augmenting player performance will be fulfilled in a manner that is more integrated into the moment-to-moment gameplay and through a variety of resources. 

Friends List  
Now it is easier than ever to stay connected to friends you meet in-game, just add them to your Friend’s List. Open the Social button , click on the player you are talking with or playing with and click to add them.

Vivox

Voice chat in Crowfall is available for groups of players that invite others into their Murder.  Once a game is joined, the Murder converts into a Group and voice chat moves all the players into the Group voice channel.  To voice chat, simply hold down the “C” key as your press to talk key.

Voice chat options

  • Crowfall’s settings menu has an Audio tab.  The voice chat output volume is for listening to players in your channel.  The voice chat input volume is how loud your microphone is.  If other players complain that your microphone volume is too low or high, you can adjust the slider in your options.
  • Auto-join will move you into the voice chat that you wish to be in.  Typically, you will want to talk to your teammates in the appropriate channel.
  • If you have problems with your microphone not picking up your voice, then you may have selected the wrong input device.  You can browse your devices in the Audio Device (Input) drop-down list.  The same goes for output if you cannot hear anyone talking.  Try testing out your devices with your friends to make sure your devices are all working.

Missed Patch Note:

We now have the ability to adjust loot rules on a world by world (not just campaign by campaign) basis!  To test this, we have set a drop rate of 50% of gold in one of the three faction PVP zones, and 100% of gold in Sky Point.  Be careful when hunting in this area!

Known Issue

  • There is a known issue that Moon Faction characters in Gods Reach that use the Runegate from the Lunarium zone to Sky Point are receiving the enemy faction debuff and will be killed if they remain in the vicinity of the Runegate for more than 30 seconds.  We are working on a fix for this issue now.
