New Concept Art: The Fallen Keep

One of the scenarios we are building starts with the player outside of a former keep. The dark forces that lay siege to this keep, eventually overtaking it, now defend their spoils against your attempts to retake it.

Below is the latest concept art from Stephen Daniele depicting the Fallen Keep. If you look closely, you will see that while it was under siege, one of the towers was badly damaged. This will allow the clever player (with ranged attacks) to attempt to drop the drawbridge by destroying the crank seen through the gap at some angles. There are other, less obvious ways, into this keep, to be discovered by the more exploratory player. Those other ways may leave the keep more defensible when the tides are turned yet again!

      I need a 5760x1200 wallpaper please. :]
      I hope this game is as good as I'm dreaming up in my head.

      So if we find their sully port or sneak in through the sewers or whatever, will the AI be smart enough to destroy the crank with ranged attacks given enough time? Can we bring a bunch of craftsmen players along to fix it and the tower? Will Smith the Horse give us a clue about Ultima Online? :-P

      I love that you are giving players an opportunity to think and providing them a sense of agency on how they choose to play something at seemingly straight forward as a siege.

      Agreed with Mitch Hamilton!

      Concur on the larger size request! Will this type of scenario be scripted or just something you might stumble on that is happening independently in the world?

    15. David on March 14, 2013

      Your concept art looks great, as always; the quality has not FALLEN. KEEP up the good work!
      I'm not sure why I just subjected the internet to that lousy punnery. Sorry. :P
