The Archos Herald, Issue 3 - Castles and Magic!

2017-08-12
Welcome to the third issue of The Archos Herald - your source for all of the hottest news on Archos.
 
Over this past week, our developers have been doubling down on quality of life fixes and continuing work on network optimization. A few changes were made to improve response speed from harvesting, so gathering should feel a lot more smooth after our last patch on 8/10 (full patch notes available here). If you want to give us some feedback about the latest patches and how you feel about the changes, head over to our Steam discussions page or /r/DarkandLight!
 
We’ve also started working on some exciting new content that’ll have you shivering with anticipation. Keep your eyes peeled for more details in the near future!
