Consistent game updates
are an integral part of any MMO experience. As players, we are
constantly looking to the future and aching for expanded content. We
always wants more: classes, dungeons, events, instances, and more. For
NDOORS, they're certainly pushing the upper limit of updates for
free-to-play games. In fact, at this year's GDC, Atlantica
announced that they would be pursuing some new major upgrades in the
near future. During the conference, Ten Ton Hammer's Danny "Ralsu"
Gourley asked a few questions of Peter Kang, CEO of NDOORS Interactive,
and found out what he's planning with Atlantica!
Ton Hammer: What do
you find is the biggest hurdle to retaining players at this stage in
Atlantica’s life cycle? Is there a specific point in the game
you can identify as problematic? If so, what are you doing to remedy
Player retention is always difficult, and it’s no secret that
the average player sticks around for only a few months in most F2P
games. In game, the biggest hurdle is always offering enough exciting
content updates in a timely manner to prevent players from hitting a
wall. But as I mentioned earlier, the team is working hard to churn out
quality, content-filled updates.
