A very quick post before I head off for a few days. Goblinworks second blog post is up where the area of the world for initial gameplay for Pathfinder Online is explained. Divided into a hex system, it is about 133 square miles in total, with three NPC factions already present, (making for a nice paper/scissors/rock scenario). To compare this, the entire world of Azeroth at launch was about 80 square miles. Throw 4500 players per month for the first seven months and I think the game has the potential to build up pace quite nicely. There is also a crapton of room available for future content development. The world is there for you to see. No mysterious land masses rising from the depths of the ocean needed.
Check it out for yourself and I’ll go into it in more detail with my thoughts next week.
