One of the neat aspects of Crowfall’s archetypes is how the team is scouting a wider range of fantasy races for its inspiration. Move over, centaurs; this week, the spotlight is all on the minotaur Myrmidon. This newest archetype will soon join the game’s pre-alpha roster, bringing the class total to seven.
Of course, it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that the devs decided to bring Shadowbane’s minotaur into their newest project. On Worthplaying, J. Todd Coleman said that Crowfall represents the ultimate do-over for him: “Shadowbane was one of the earliest attempts to create a dynamic world, a simulation of reality where the players drive the history and create the stories. It didn’t work as well as we would have liked, for a handful of design and technical reasons, but I never lost that dream. Crowfall offers me another chance to build it.”
