Ever since Revelation Online opened its beta doors, heroes from around the globe dove right into the world of Nuanor despite it being English only during its early stages of development.
We’re happy to inform everyone that, while the endeavour has taken longer than expected, work has been continuing full force on the French & German localization – so much so that we’re announcing that we aim to have Revelation Online launched in both these languages by Q3 2017! As the progress continues we’ll update everyone with more precise dates and information.
Where are we now?
At the moment of publishing this article, our QA & Localization teams have already begun testing FR & DE clients via closed servers, giving them a polish and focussing on all the finishing touches required for a quality experience.
We would also like to give you a small insight of what localization is and how it works. While translating the in-game text is a large localization effort, the project affects many areas of the game that all need to align, this can include: altering art assets, expanding the UI, programing, among other things.
Our team has been working hard to provide you, the Community, with an update on our French and German versions. We previously mentioned that we have pushed the FR & DE localization onto our internal testing servers for our team to look for issues which could appear from pushing our localization onto the client. The types of issues our team may encounter will be from text not appearing at all to text not fitting within the UI. These issues can then be fixed by the team, UI can be expanded and it can be investigated as to why the text isn’t appearing correctly.
Below you will find some images of some of the progress we have made within the clients themselves.
As we work on finishing polishing the game and getting ready for launch, we want to give everyone a huge thank you for the continued feedback and suggestions during the open beta, as well as thank you for your patience during the long localization process. We look forward to bringing you the French and German versions and providing a means for heroes to enjoy Revelation Online in their own language.
Please stay tuned for further updates on the French and German versions of Revelation Online in the upcoming future.
