Introducing the Horizons Experience

by Community Manager ‎11-15-2016 11:57 AM - edited ‎11-15-2016 01:15 PM

Somewhere across the oceans the computers begin to whirr, robots activate, and a sinister land is brought to life. And now, a vast new landscape has opened its doors to those who would dare to take on its creator: the ever menacing Dr. Talpa.

With another scheme in the works, Magellan asked Tyrah to infiltrate the mad scientist mole’s lair and discover just what evil technological abominations he was constructing. However - this being a LDPW experience backstory - it was not long before she was captured. She is now being held prisoner in Dr. Talpa’s command center.

The Mainland Gameplay Regions

The Horizons experience takes you through six regions starting out in the great advanced city itself.  Here, Residents are introduced to the challenges that await, so be sure to check out the videos outlining the great adventure. Your journey will take you from towering canyons to dark and deadly mines, all the way through forests and swamps,and finally, to the command center where Tyrah awaits her rescue.

This 5 quest storyline takes you through various challenges laid out by the evil Dr. Talpa.  Everything from vicious splorches, killer robots, laser defense systems, the terrifying pet Fluffy, all the way to hidden traps, mazes, puzzles and more!  Residents will have to use the provided weapons to defeat menacing foes, while taking on other elements with their own wit.

But beware, saving Tyrah won’t be as simple as conquering these challenges.  The greatest adversary you face is the clock winding down to 0.  Can you save Tyrah in time? Will Dr Talpa finally succeed in ruling the grid? Will Magellan pay his bar tab? It’s all up to you!!!  

New Horizon’s Residential Regions

The Horizons experience itself is not the only exciting new release. Thirty-six, yes you read that right, 36 new regions surrounding the experience will be released for Residents!  These beautiful new regions, which abound with exciting features, are adorned with several styles of home brought to you by Linden Lab and the Moles.

Owning a parcel on these lands comes with the ability to rez one of these houses via a special mailbox controller, an indoor control panel to customize the house, and a special resource pack containing handy items to decorate with. The regions feature waterways that flow through areas for easy travel with vehicles, which can be spawned at any of the rez zones found around the info hubs and community regions.  

Being a part of this grand new community is something we are very excited to offer Residents, and it’s an added bonus that you’ll be close to the experience itself!  Mark your calendars, Residential parcels will commence going to auction on Friday, November 18th!

New Info and Community Hubs

Alongside the residential areas and the experience, lay several community and info hubs.  The first of the two, the community hubs, are designed for Residents to use for their community groups, meetings, and events. These beautiful hubs feature a nice, serene environment to be social and enjoy alongside all your favorite fellow Residents.

The second of these two areas are the info hubs. These hubs feature land information, as well as an easy access portal that takes you directly to the mainland experience itself. There are also links to the wiki available which provide access to helpful knowledge regarding the housing system. A mailbox demo and building demos are set up to show you the controls featured in the new housing system. Residents will also find any update information here regarding the housing and mailbox system!

So there you have it folks, the brand new Horizons experience in a nutshell.  But don’t expect us to tell you everything; every secret and bit of fun lays in wait for you to experience!  So grab your favorite pair of boots and begin the great journey!
