Dragon Quest X Goes Back to “Two New Quests a Week” Routine with The King of Rangao Village

Last week Dragon Quest X received just one new quest instead of the usual two, and some wondered if Square Enix was slowing down development of the game due to the poor sales of the Wii U version. Luckily that wasn’t the case and the development team went back to the “two new quests a week” routine this week. (Dragon Quest X, Wii, Wii U)

Periodical episodic content meets MMO? Sounds like a cool concept, especially if it's free.

@Donnieboi: The game is pay to play. Not gonna get this quick update pace on a free to play game, ever.

I didn't say it was free. I'm just saying that IF it was free, it would be even cooler. I'm actually thinking more about user-generated episodes (which would make it easier to be free) but that's a whole other topic.

Free to play simply means that the developer has to shift its development philosophy into making users buy as much crap as possible on the cash shop. That tends to conflict with this kind of content updates, especially done often.

Dragon Quest IX had many updates, for a long time, all for free.

Okay it was not an MMO, and the DS capacity for surrounding consoles recognition sure came into handy, but no one ever had to pay anything except the retail price of the game.

Completely different game, completely different size and quality for the updates. Comparing apples to escalators.
