Updated Store Release Date

By Caeoltoiri

Though this comes a day late, happy 4th of July everyone! Even if you didn’t celebrate the holiday, we hope you had a fantastic 4th. We at Soulbound were working hard over the weekend to try and meet the goal we set for the store release, or should I say, website release...

As we were developing our store, we observed much of the work to get the online store up and running would have to be re-done with the release of the new website, so in the interest of efficiency, we decided to merge the two streams. While website 2.0 looks visually similar to its predecessor, the coding behind it has been massively improved to provide our users with more functionality, security, and scalability. It’s built upon a different technology which is pivotal to our ability to do some of the things we want to do with the community. However, in spite of our efforts, the amount of work required to get the website up was more than we could do in a short period of time, especially with the holiday. Even after working through the 4th in an effort to see the new site live today, there was simply too much work remaining.

So, our options were to either push back to tomorrow and work hard to get something out, or push back to the end of the week to get it out right.

After discussing with the team, we decided to shift the launch all the way to Friday to grant us some breathing room. In doing so, it ensures we avoid any last-minute launch hitches and allows us the time we need to make it right. As a temporary measure, we’re also shifting development resources internally in an effort to ensure the website is done by Friday. This delay also serves to give us more time to add content to the Game Guide.

Over the last couple of weeks, there have been many lessons learned about team allocation, the critical path, and even setting deadline dates right after a holiday. Our goal is to be constantly learning from our work so we never make the same mistake twice. This was ultimately a resourcing problem as we are still a small team trying to do big things. This will be mitigated in the future by hiring new team members to take on those roles most prone to bottlenecks; in this case, a dedicated web developer.

That all said, know that while the website had to be pushed back, the majority of the team continues to make forward progress on the game. As well, we’re working to bring you the first Kickstarter reward, the Kickstarter exclusive “CoE Wallpaper.” Eddie has outdone himself yet again with a fantastic lore-based wallpaper which we believe will find a place on your desktop for quite some time.

Finally, for those that backed at reward tiers which include a forum border. Take a look at these shinies. And if you’re not happy with yours, remember, once the shop goes live you can always upgrade to get a better border. Below, you’ll also find a preview of the Work-In-Progress account page on the new website -- the information isn’t accurate as it’s pulling from a test database.

Speaking of images -- while looking through media to post to the upgraded media section of the website we discovered a few pieces of concept and screenshots which hadn’t been shared yet. Look forward to the additions to the media section, and here’s a sneak peek of some of the new images you’ll find.

No, take a look at the forum post 'State of Elyria'

Maldorf - 1 year ago

Sounds like full release will be sometime the second half of 2019 maybe, but like Varhukan said when it is ready. I think it is a great thing that it doesn't seem to be being rushed to the public like so many of the beta games on Steam. A lot of the games just seem like money making endeavors and really don't ever reach a finished/polished stage. I am happy that it isn't supposed to be ready for another year or more.

They intend to have an APAC server. They have said they have no intention of region locking. Chances are that you will be able to play with a relatively low ping on the APAC server.

There will be a beta they have them listed in the pledges tab all the way to 3

To add on to what Kurokei is saying, a store will open on the website on October 3rd where all the tiers from the Kickstarter (with the exception of the Early Bird ones) will be available with the same rewards at the same price.

So in many ways you heard about this game just in time mate :D

They must have a very complicated store build to launch, what will the store include? It is advertized that the store is the first step towards the adventure that is on the horizon. The game rest on the store, we have no choice but to wait.

NoxaOozle - 2 years ago

It's definitely better to wait for a store free of bugs than rush it out. So many companies make this mistake and it just puts people off wanting to use it

Can't wait for this game to come out!

RedDoggybone - 2 years ago

Yes, store has been delayed until the new web designer can integrate it into this site. Or something like that. He was just hired August 1st so he will need more time. But you didn't miss anything.

When store does go up you will have a month to pledge same as if it was the KS. Other than that there is no new KS.

Kelcifer - 2 years ago

Not sure if its hidden or just not happening yet, i was under the impression that the store would be up and running with options to purchase/preorder/kickstart this title when the store gets up in a week or so.....

that was 3 months ago. Could someone be so kind as to reiterate the time-line itinerary of this title moving forward? re: next kickstarter date, actual store availability date, etc.

knew i shoulda jumped in original KS. just got burnt from repop though.... uhhhgg...

ok, thank you.

As I understand it, the major setback to the store was the website, which they just recently managed to get up and running without a web developer.

Their web developer was hired on August 1 so I believe he's working on fixing bugs and getting the site prepared for adding the store.

I don't think we were given an exact date on when it was expected the store would be up, but you will have (I believe) a full month of the store being up to get access to the same Kickstarter backer levels as the original kickstarter.

@RhydianCai - 7:19 PM - Sun Jul 24 2016

During the kickstarter it was $120 (US) - it has been stated that if the store gets released there will a thirty day period during which the tiers will be the same.

Snowmannumbertwo - 2 years ago

i bet the first 30 days of the store there is an influx of at least $2mil USD. possibly more if there is some sort of media push. could easily see more kings if they state that no kings after the first 30 days.

@Snowmannumbertwo - 2:27 AM - Wed Jul 20 2016

Limiting options by arbitrary timers is always somewhat questionable. What if someone is willing to pledge that amount, but due to external circumstances could only be financially comfortable with doing so at some point after the timer expired?

Chipla, unfortunately the Kickstarter campaign is a one and done. However Pre-Orders of CoE will be made available through PayPay once the store goes live. The tiers may be somewhat different but you will definatly have a second bit at the apple through their store.

@Sullen - 3:08 PM - Fri Jul 15 2016

That is not in accord with the understanding I hold, which is that when the store goes live, we can pledge the SAME pledges as in the Kickstarter AND get the same rewards for 30 days.

After this, they will be modified in some (or multiple) ways, etc.

I'll have to go find the actual reference now.... (Really wish this kind of thing were more pointedly addressed in the FAQ)... will edit this when I find it.

You are correct Phydra.

"people will be able to back us on our website not only through PayPal, but also through credit cards and other local, regional payment methods - no matter which country you hail from. . . .Also, regardless of when it opens, the first 30 days will have the same reward tiers as our Kickstarter, so people can continue to back just as they have been."

Keep going good guys! You have a lot of people like me really hoping this all comes out, don't keel over though trying to, better later with a stronger base and more content than early and a complete buggy mess and disappointing, I paid 250$ to help this game get well on its feet (and website) so make it worth it and more!

Gucio - 2 years ago

Im already in. I have done with mmorpg like metin2 or else where acctually all u have to do is use skills by button and not even try to get grind them. In tibia there was grinding ur skills, but in this game it's even on diffrent level. Also i look forward for keeping shop, gathering,crafting, enchanting, Forge, farming ur own plants, etc. i would like to have my own house that can survive without a big city around.Also get the fame by sculpting forging etc. idk, but after some manga(manhua also) like gamer, legendary moonlight sculptor, many about VRMMORPG i feel like the game todays is not so funny, i also would like have an auction system in game but not like in web or else just as auction house, and many minigames with skin cleaning, potions making etc. AND most important is to lvling those skills trough the actions, also would be nice if we would have bottleneck in grinding those and some hiden quest to get trough it, why hidden it should make ppl to an action not only grinding skills but feels actual adventure, also if skills is to max 100 (for example) there should be few bottlenecks and from what i saw every family would have other speciality so somebody from family with blacksmith skills should have less bottleneck then other family also family should also know about 1st or even 2nd hidden quest. And if other player from other family willing have easier way he should a good terms with those family. I also think there should be chance For 1ManArmy,etc. Really hope for this game. IM hungry of it.

@Gucio:

Oh man you are the same as me.I also follow this kind of manga and would love if some mechanics from them would be implemented in this game.Say like the discovery of new skills by accident while travelling around the world and fighting which i believe would be awesome.

00cappello - 2 years ago

I've been following this game very closely and I'm really impressed with the concept of the game. I truly love the fact that you can not just hastily make decisions without it affecting your characters lifespan. One thing I'm really curious to see is how far soul bound is going to go with "Crime & Punishment".

If I want to be a bandit or thief I want to be able to fully steal ffrom houses without unrealistic safeguards. In other words If I have 20k gold in my manor, I want a burglar to have a fair chance to steal ALL of it. I also wanna see harsh punishments, such as a few hours in the county dungeon, or even permanent death by hanging or the guillotine.

I'm really hoping this game lives up to the potential of being a mini game of thrones, where you never know what is going to happen type plot twists happen frequently. Please give us the chance to take huge risks, and make the rewards worth a 30 dollar death!

Its nice for you to throw in a bit of a time line. Ill definitely keep tabs on the game; it has a very unique and interesting feel about it.

..and thanks for the link. It does work and it does state that investing will continue soon within the game website.

Flashman - 2 years ago

Hi Laughter, great to see you in a game again.

There's no link to the client as there is no client... yet. An alpha client might be out late in the year (?) but certainly nothing to download yet. The first download will be some mini-games, one of them MUD-like, in the months ahead.

Also in terms of the tiers, until the store opens you won't see them here, but you can get an appreciation of them via the old KS page (link is clickable):

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/soulboundstudios/chronicles-of-elyria-epic-story-mmorpg-with-aging/description

Hope this helps.

Laughter - 2 years ago

Thank you Flashman.

However it's still very unclear how to become involved on any level, whether a "backer" of some sort or not.

I really enjoy becoming involved in promising Alphas or Betas but am clueless after hours of research as to how.

I can't find any sort of download link to the client as well.

Any information would be great as I am certain others who just found the website will have the same questions.

Thanks so much! Peace ~

and yes, "Laughter" is a name I have used in many MMORPGs and been in and associated with the gaming industry (Primarily MMORPGs)since EQ days.

When the store goes online in the day(s) ahead, you will be able to pledge for the game (the Kickstarter is over, but crowd funding will continue on-site), and some of those pledges include alpha and beta access depending on the $$$ you are spending. Good luck.

My personal opinion, only mine about this week. Respect, please.

I'm decepcionated with web update. You have a 1 week of delay and you UP web without store, this is the first motive of UPDATE TITLE. I hope more and more organization with contract and timeline

You done a great work with some new content, new sketches, menus, etc... and work hard to UP the Web.

I hope that you learn about this problem. Now rest a long way to up the comunity hype again to fortgot this problem and only rest with a anecdote.

And I hope too that in short time you will implemented store and rest that you promised to the comunity for this update.

If you would want my vote in my opinion for balance, state and progression of this week.

Work SBS group: 6/10. Web finish update: 3/10 New content & Design: 4/10 Balance of week & updates: 6/10 Timeline & delay: 3/10

TOTAL: 4.4/10

WorldExplorer - 2 years ago

This game seems really interesting and I don't think I have seen anything like it before. There are some things I can't find a good answer to, but maybe I am just not looking good enough.

I think I read the characters lifespan could be somewhere between 10 months and 14 months, unless you was very influential for example as a king. Does the time in-game match the time in real life or is there for example 4 in-game days for every 1 day of real life time?

Is there some sort of percentage of the offline time when it converts into the characters life span time, for example does the offline time count as half the time compared to if you played the character for the same amount of time as you spent offline?

Is there a date for when a download-able version of the game will be out, is it for example connected to the when the store goes live or is it another day? Is there a plan for the game to be free to try (for a certain amount of time)/ free to play/ pay to play or something else?

Thankful for any answers =)

@WorldExplorer:

For every RL day, one season passes. Every 4 RL days a year passes in game. There are reduced days per season though ie 1 day in game every 2.5 hours.

It's the same pace off and online. Time doesn't stop :)

If you "die" ie have a near death experience, it takes it's toll on you ie you age. Little bit more to it but that should give you the idea.

Sparks (ie lives) are the subscription model. Obviously, paying $30 for 10-14 months is super cheap for a sub mmo.

Release dates haven't been announced yet. The first Alpha may be a year off but that's guessing. Obviously the higher tier backers will get the first glimpse via Alphas :)

Take some time to read the Q&A thread etc on the forum. Look for the STICKY postings for the summaries to get you started ;)

You guys are awesome for being open and honest with us about the reasons for the delay. It's definitely better to push it back a bit ankd get it right the first time.

Will we still be able to buy such this as access to the exposition? Will that be part of any kind of preorder?

Kaidoku - 2 years ago

So excited for the release, we know that you have all been trying really hard & each and every one of us are excited to try everything you have been working so hard for!

I love you all and I have lots of hope for the project, but the store delays are really starting to seed worry in my mind. A store is just one part of the overall project that is CoE, and we're already running into overtime.

I know some of it wasn't your fault, outside venders mucked up at least a few weeks of the launch window, but how likely is it that the game itself could also run into delays from outside sources? I would hope these delays would encourage some pre-planning for backup contingences should such events happen in other areas of the project. I don't want CoE to turn into the next Star Citizen, facing perpetual delays and downsizing.

Again, I want us to succeed. If anything to prove the people who have been putting down the project from day one. I’m just worried.

I said it before and I'll say it again:

STOP SHARING SO MUCH CONTENT! <---said no one ever?

...Well, I guess maybe I said it now, didn't I...hmm. Awkward.

Damn, the Screenshot looks amazing, as always! Especially the impressive sky, grass and the lodge

Stealthwire - 2 years ago

Can't say I'm not bummed about the delay but I'm sure it's in CoE's best interest. I AM pumped for the new website to come out at the same time, though! Gonna have to get more fan art going for that avatar :)

As much as it pains me to say it, its always better to delay than release something that will cost you more time later.

nice

Keep it going guys, we are looking forward to hear about which year/month you think it will be ready for an alpha or beta version. Or anything, it looks great with uniques features that no MMORPG had before.

Taiashi - 2 years ago

Right on guys! Please take it easy and don't rush yourselves in any aspect.

i'd happily wait 3 years for a game like this if i had to.

we don't need another albion online or black desert or mabinogi.

you guys are doing a wonderful thing here, i'm only disappointed that i didn't hear about you guys until the kickstarter was already over. i would have totally jumped on it had i the chance.

any who, thank you for all of your guys' hard work. and thank you for the absolute transparency.

Keep it up!

Well done team, rest well ever day to be fresh and cool for coding on the next one...
Well done forum people to be so understandably about all this, nice to know we all are mature...
Both of us keep the good work, we all need it.

Artaer - 2 years ago

The transparency is thoroughly appreciated. And no one wants a mediocre experience. Thanks for making a game worthy of waiting for.

Absolutely agree :)

I love that screenshot ... imagine the sound of bees as you walk though the grass to the river to cast your fishing line into that gorgeous water ...

OK, I will be happy to take the little cabin between the conifer forest and the lake. Looks like the ideal place to get away from it all.

No Ursaphant rider badge? Take your time on getting the website and store done. I have seen first hand from another MMO what happens when a deadline is rushed instead of the game being done right. I rather have a delay and things work like they should. Quality over quantity.

deathman115 - 2 years ago

Good to know. Take the time you need to make it right the first time so there won't be problems in the future!

Dekul - 2 years ago

As Scotty says, you should always choose how long you think it will take and add at least 50% to the initial estimate. That way we're impressed when you're early, rather than the other way around...

Thank you for the update. Take all the time you need to get the store/website perfect. Good luck and try to take care of yourselves.

Also the forum borders, profile, and concept are look beautiful!

Thanks for the update! Get it right so you don't have to work twice. As for us we can wait until Friday. :)

Severax - 2 years ago

good news, more time to save money for upgrade. Better see the store out late without any bugs than seeing Caspian collapses from overwork everyday lol
