Exclusive Mabinogi: Pioneers of Iria Expansion Interview
Since last March, Ten Ton Hammer has been closely following the
progress of one of our favorite F2P games, href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/taxonomy/term/856"
target="_blank">Mabinogi. Published by
Nexon America, the cute-looking Mabinogi has
an incredible amount of depth once you get past the "cuddly" exterior,
and we're happy to report that even more features and options have been
unlocked with the recently released expansion, "Pioneers of Iria."
Recently, Ten Ton Hammer caught up with Nexon's Matthew McCullough,
Assistant Game Producer, to talk about the newly released content and
what players can expect from the updated game.
Ton Hammer: The content in Iria seems to add a lot of breadth to
Mabinogi; players get new races, dungeons, monsters, and a huge
continent divided into three distinct geographical regions. Is it safe
to say the goal was to give players of all levels more to do rather
than focusing only on raid content or starter areas?
Matthew McCullough: Absolutely. After reading our forums and
GMs overhearing conversations in game along the lines of,
go and do a Baol clear,” or “Another Rabbie
run…” we’re happy to offer
players new ways to enjoy themselves in-game. Among things
excited to see players experience is the new dynamic dungeon system as
well as all the exploration quests. There’s just more to do
that’s kind of refreshing. We’re also proud of the
beginner Elf and
Giant quests which help familiarize new players on how to play the
game. The later parts of the Elf and Giant
‘tutorials’ feature more
difficult beasts for veteran players.
