Tavern Interior Walkabout Video

An early look inside a generic tavern – we’re building a range of cosy taverns, inns and houses for the player to explore, unlike here it will be in first person, but a similar theme will be shown including being able to buy and sell from the inn keeper, talk to some of the people (some may have work or a quest for the player to complete) and maybe also some hidden secrets to discover. Oh and obviously all bow and arrows to be left at the door in future please. . its health and safety gone mad!
