Anarchy Online Dev Interview at RPG Vault

Posted Fri, Oct 28, 2005 by Ethec

Is that a boss in your pocket, or are you glad to see me? (that never gets old... or does it?)
Funcom's Craig Morrison describes the unique "pocket boss" system found in the "Shadowlands" expansion of Anarchy Online. Really, who doesn't want a boss mob they can spawn anywhere?

The new Shadowlands quests grant faction as rewards for their successful completion as well as pattern parts for our unique 'pocket boss' system, so that players can collect the parts to be able to spawn a special boss mob at their own convenience. Spawning and defeating this boss mob grants further faction rewards allowing players to gain Shadowknowledge (exp) and faction at the same time, something they previously had to do separately.

A variety of casual player friendly features in the latest "It's alive!" Anarchy Online dev interview at RPG Vault.
