Big Vanguard update next week

New starting area's nearly here.

Sony Online Entertainment's other fantasy MMO - no, the other other one - Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is on the brink of receiving a major revamp.

According to the official site, Game Update 6 will go live "as early as next week", which is a bottom-covering way of saying "next week".

Game Update six - which was first detailed back in July - will add a new starting area for the first ten levels, called the Isle of Dawn, and updated character models.

Plus there will be some fixes for those bugs that Vanguard is, unfortunately, so well known for. "Over a dozen pages of patch notes," say the developers, proudly.

We'll take a look at some point soon, and let you know how it's looking.
