Guards get a wardrobe update in City of Steam's new Dev Journal
City of Steam, the upcoming browser based Unity engine MMO, has detailed a redesign of it's NPC guards since the last beta build. They've gone back to the drawing board with the guard design, which had previously looked like a typical fantasy, full-plate wearing character type. Now, however, they have been given Napoleonic-like coats and leather boots to go along with the game's steampunk style.
One character in particular has been given a hand-crafted look: Lieutenant Twyne, who was singled out as the "Most Talked to NPC" during a previous test. With a trimmed goatee and fancy epaulets (The dangly shoulder curtains!), he now looks the part of an officer.
Check out the full art Dev Journal for a full comparison between the old and new outfits.
