Hey all!

It's been a fun couple weeks here at Lavaboots. Our lead dev, John, just got married and is returning from his honeymoon. We also just recently released Update 1.8: The King's Bounty. This update added a new set of pirate islands we like to call Tier 3 Islands which have some really tough pirates and good loot. If you haven't downloaded this update yet, be sure to do so! 

You can read the patch notes for that update here: Update 1.8 Patch Notes

Today I want to talk about what kind of updates you can expect coming soon! 

The Main Quest

Recently we've been working hard to finish implementation of the main quest. This includes adding multiple new quest steps that pick up where we previously left off. Some of the new quest steps are going to take you to jungle islands, involve searching for a hidden item using a special compass, and some neat lore revelations. This update is also going to include a pretty epic end game boss fight that John has been working on. 

We expect this update to be out fairly soon and are excited to share some more details with you in the coming weeks! 


Once the story update is out, it's time to move on to multiplayer implementation. Multiplayer is likely going to be a long endeavor but one that has been missing in Salt for quite some time. We are very excited to begin work on this and can't wait to share the seas with you all! 

Since multiplayer is going to be a long process, we will still be working on smaller updates that will release throughout this update. These smaller updates will include new content, polishes, bug fixes, and things of that sort. We've got some neat ideas for these updates and will share more as we get closer to their release. 

Overall we are very excited about the content coming up soon and we think this is going to be a great year for Salt!
