Richard Garriott and his studio Portalarium have just added multiplayer as a new feature of the early access build for RPG Shroud of the Avatar. Chums can now interact with one another through chat and emotes.

These "short three to four day tests" greatly help, and now multiplayer functions will be thrown into the mix. An 'add friend' menu now exists as so does a new village.

We are also treated to some different style homes, sub-level basements, home decorating, NPC conversations, crafting and some good ole fashioned adventuring and combat.

The first iteration of early access for Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is coming December 12th, which allows player creation and snapping up some real-estate in the RPG's first town of Firstownia.

Okay it's probably not called that. However it'll only be available for two days and require you being online despite being single-player only. The next major early access is in late January 2014.
