Arcen Games is wholly excited to announce new updates for their procedurally-generated exploration and survival game A Valley Without Wind. A ton of work has been put in over the past couple months, as the game edges closer to its first playable beta. Today includes reveals for brand new character models, the introduction of armor suits, new time period details, and a full gameplay video of the title’s latest build.
AVWW now has completely new character models; more of them too! They’re a significant upgrade from what was previously in the game, and dozens-if not hundreds-of models are still in the works. Heat and Snowsuit tech-armor have been introduced as well, as hot and cold now very much matter to human inhabitants of Environ. 16 new character/armor concept art images are available to view as part of this press package; with a breakdown of each, plus new time period details, and art credits over on Arcen CEO Chris Park’s Games By Design blog.
Many of these additions and more can be seen in the 17-minutes of gameplay footage recently released from the title’s latest build (available to view in 1080p for full effect.) Chris narrates throughout, and also has posted a full explanation of everything happening in the video over on his aforementioned developer blog.
A Valley Without Wind is on target for a playable beta release in September, with instant access to those who pre-order the official version coming later this year.
