Sometimes, you have to make things official. Faxion Online will be officially released on Thursday, May 26, shipping to retailers across the globe. The release marks a milestone for the Faxion dev team at UTV True Games, but Creative Director Mike Madden emphasizes that retail launch is just the beginning:
I’ll be clear right up front: Faxion isn’t a console game, and we’re not approaching it that way. While important, official launch is just another milestone. Rather than treating it like the finish line, we’ve already begun work on some of the major systems that will be coming online over the next few months. The Guild System is slated for a complete overhaul, and we’re hard at work on the addition of Holy Wars. This means equipping guilds with the tools to own, manage, and destroy territory and assets. Should you covet property an “ally” has conquered, you’ll be able to indict them as unworthy and declare an Inquisition, hunting them to the ends of Limbo.
Madden also notes in his forum post that the dev team will be committed to system optimization and stability. Check out all of Mike Madden’s thoughts on the Faxion Online forums here.
To promote the launch, UTV True Games will be holding an iPad2 giveaway and feature leaderboard winners for various levels of play and faith.
