Additionally, the devs seem to be keen to interacting more with the communities on feedback and events for the game, which is a great thing to see.

The last thing that the devs left players with is a reassurance of transparency. They state that they know that there will be issues and bugs with the game, but they outline three points of this commitment to assure players they will do right by them.

  • They will never alter any data, stats or functions without first announcing it to the players publically with full transparency.
  • Their goal when it comes to dealing with bugs is to identify them quickly, and fix them as soon as possible.
  • For other major issues, they will be vocal about communicating known issues, and then resolve them quickly with an appropriate compensation to players for the issue.

The studio is also encouraging players to reach out via their social media or customer service inbox if they have any issues.

Tower of Fantasy update schedule and roadmap

Though launch day was talked about, the Tower of Fantasy developers haven't really outlined what the future of the game might look like. It's easy to imagine it following the update schedule of the Chinese version, with new characters and stories releasing in the same order, but there's been no confirmation just yet.

As a comparison, Genshin Impact typically releases a big update every six weeks. There's no saying Tower of Fantasy will follow the same path, so expect some confusion as the game releases as people draw conclusions from comparisons that only lead to confusion.

And that's all that we have! The game is set to launch on August 10, 2022 on PC and iOS/Android, with Steam and Epic Games Store versions coming a little further down the line.
