Player Housing Information from GDC Comes Trickling in

Ok, so apparently Todd Coleman, the Executive Director of Wizard 101, has been at GDC this week. GDC is a huge expo with tons of Game Industry experts giving talks, showcasing their stuff, doing tutorials, having summits . . . this thing is huge. From what I understand, day 1 and 2 are kind of the days that the press gets to interview people and there's a few good talks being given, but the main expo floor isn't open. Day 1 and 2 are over, and we're into day 4 of GDC today. Man it would have been cool to go to this . . .

Good news for us? It appears as though Todd was talking about player housing!!

Now this news to the true fan over at Wizard 101 Central is old news. Unfortunately (or fortunately however you want to look at it) player housing was fully spilled over at that site. Jester even had to pull some information about it and tuck some other information away.

Brenden Lidsey over at MMO Hub had this to say about his talk with Todd Coleman at GDC:

That's right, 'Wizard101' players -- soon your wizards can own homes of their very own! I met with KingsIsle's Director, Todd Coleman, at the Marriott bar in downtown San Francisco to get a glimpse at the upcoming feature, and learn a little more about it.

Yup . . . there are three screenshots over there, you best go check it out.

I don't think Brenden is the only person that Mr. Coleman talked to. I imagine we will start to hear more and more about player housing trickling in from Todd's time at GDC. /swami hat off.

I'll try to keep my ear to the ground, y'all. I think we're all pretty stoked about this new feature.

I can't wait to have my own little island in the sky. ;-)
