Modders, rejoice! Snail Games is happy to announce that today Unreal Workshop users will be able to modify and edit the popular, fantasy sandbox survival RPG, Dark and Light to their heart’s content with the release of The Dark and Light Dev Kit. Available today on PC through the Unreal Launcher, The Dark and Light Dev Kit is a simplified, but comprehensive, version of the Unreal Engine 4 Editor that makes it a perfect toy box for those just getting into modding as well as seasoned programmers.
The Dark and Light Dev Kit empowers users to unleash their own imaginations or immediately tweak the existing world of Archos like never before! Creators can then upload those mods to the Steam Workshop® to share them with other players.
Players will be able to create:
- Maps and regions
- Weapons and armour
- UI Screens
- New Game modes
- Class abilities and game mechanics
- And more!
Aspiring programmers and modders will have the full power of the Unreal Engine’s modding tools to introduce new content and unlock extensive game functionality for an open environment. Blueprints for gameplay mechanics such as spells and AI behavior trees will be accessible, alongside source art. Snail Games hopes players will put their own stamp on the world of Archos, by importing custom artwork to transform the game world visually, experiment with the entire ecosystem and devise their own game modes.
To start creating your own fantasy world, simply run The Dark and Light Dev Kit from the Unreal Launcher, or enable it from your Steam library and create an Unreal Engine account. Then get creative!
