A message from Daniel Dolui and character customization preview

Community translation: Deutsch

Hello everyone!

Our CEO, Daniel Dolui, wants to personally give you an important information regarding a slight change in the release date of Wolcen. This is not much, but for us it’s everything, and we hope that you will be understanding.

In addition to this, we wanted to share with you some images of our studio, and mostly a preview on the new character customization that will be available at the release of the game. That customization preview contains the return of the female character model, and we’re very happy to finally introduce her to you.

As always, thank you for your support.

Video transcript:

“Hello everyone this is Daniel Dolui and I'm the CEO of Wolcen Studio.

Some of you already know me, or at least my accent, from the Kickstarter videos. It's been a while since I‘ve talked to you directly, but today we have some important news to bring you and I think I should do it myself.

We decided to delay the game by two weeks, bringing it to February 13th because the game needs to be as polished as possible.

Internally, everyone is working incredibly hard towards the release of the game, and we are really looking forward to enjoying its content with our players. However, we need to do this right and ensure that we have a high quality, polished experience at launch.

In our current situation, even a day of work makes a huge impact on the final quality of Wolcen. We don’t want to waste several years of development, and the quality of such a strong project, by releasing an unstable version of the game.

We sincerely believed that the game would be ready on time, and we are really close to it. But, as you know, this is our first game, and we want to give it as much love and care as we possibly can.

For the team, this means two more weeks of hard work, and this is not a decision we have taken lightly. It will be hard for everyone, but we are passionate and we know that this is necessary if we are to release a successful game.

Since the Kickstarter, our company has grown in an amazing way, allowing us to improve the game beyond what we could ever have dreamed of at the beginning of the project.

We’ve come a long way from being 5 guys working in their room on a clunky game that suffered from tons of memory leaks.

Today we have a team of more than 40 people working on this great game. Our team is proud of our achievements, and hearing players give such positive feedback makes us feel that our hard work is paying off.

This is going to be an amazing release. The finish line is so close.

All we ask is for a tiny bit of patience so that we can make Wolcen as awesome as we all know it can be.

Thank you for listening, and now, please enjoy this preview of Wolcen character customization.”

I for one, completely support the decision to delay. If you feel it's not ready, then the public surely wouldn't. Some may disagree with the decision and bash you for it, but those are the same that would bash you for releasing it before you felt it was ready.

Kudos to the Wolcen dev team! It'll be worth the wait.

Oh no ... My work day became sad. We do not mind if you work hard. Your project is very ambitious and interesting. Only support the Russian-speaking community more actively. Eg: translate your site into several languages. I have many friends who love the ARPG, but do not know foreign languages.
P.S. I bought the game in early access, will I have to buy the full version again?

Hello
I just wanted to know if our progress in beta will be kept in the full game? and having bought the games in beta, will I have to buy it back in full version?

Created: 10 months, 3 weeks ago

Too bad, i was hope that I'm dive into Wolcen during my few days holiday .... from the other side 2 week delay isn't that much and for everyone is better that game will be released as finished product than making day 1, 2, 3, 4 patches ;)

Hey team, post a video with the gameplay at high difficulty levels and with a pumped character, pls. It is possible in network mode. This will brighten up our expectation a little.

Created: 10 months, 3 weeks ago

Yeah, sure. Don't worry about that. We will wait as long as necessary. Just do a perfect game for us.

Created: 10 months, 3 weeks ago

great games needs time

Created: 10 months, 3 weeks ago

Keep us informed and I'm more than willing to wait for as long as it takes :-)
We want a great game, not a rushed finish just to deliver it for the stated release date ;-)

Ayliona Original Comment

That was already stated.
Progress it's not saved. That really wouldn't be fair for new players :-D

But you will get a full game for the price you paid for a beta (or alpha). That's the kind of 'thank you' we got for trusting in their project ;-)

satyriconicz Original Comment

Max level is going to be 90.
Just read the other article in news ->
"More details about the full game..."

There you have all this info

Nobody cares if you are 2 weeks or 2 months late.

Learn from pre-activision Blizzard.... Release the game, when its COMPLETE, in its BEST form, absolutely sparkling and as bug-free as possible and you will have showers of gold hitting your bank.

Players respect hard work and dedication and appreciate it. At least I do.

Cant wait! Didnt kick start but bought it on a steam sale... Game is SO FUN (aside from the ranged classes, they feel quite clunky and the aiming is really off)

So good though!
