The next major update for Skyforge has just been announced by the Allods Team, Obsidian Entertainment, and My.com. Titled “Aelion’s Call”, the update is scheduled to arrive on September 16th. The update will iinclude major bug fixes, class balancing, Skyforge’s second raid, a new catch-up system for lower prestige players looking to catch up to their higher-prestige friends, and much more. The update will address as many of the community’s suggestions, feedback, and general concerns as possible.
Here’s everything that Aelion’s Call will include:
New Raid “Operation Madea”: Centuries ago, a Mechanoid flagship crash landed on Aelion’s surface during a failed Invasion, appearing to have been completely disabled in the process. However, recent activity has proven this false – The Mechanoids inside have reactivated and Phytonides have overgrown much of the ship’s innards. A Group of 10 immortals can take part in this Raid, exploring the deepest recesses of this unknown technological marvel in an effort to put a stop to the Invader’s renewed plans.
Catch-Up System: Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to actively play with your friends because your Prestige isn’t high enough yet. This is where the new Catch-Up System comes in handy; players that have just begun their adventures in Aelion or have taken an extended leave of absence are now capable of catching up to those who have been playing since the start of Open Beta. The system offers faster progression through promo adventures, enabling players to progress at a rapid pace. As a player gets further to the current maximum obtainable by old players, the amount of bonus rewards decreases, resulting in a small gap between them and the veteran players.
Operations: This update also introduces Operations, where up to 40 players compete for valuable rewards during Invasions! Now, when an Invasion becomes active, players are capable of earning Signs of the currently invading army by completing any Adventure which features representatives of that faction. Earning Signs both completes your personal Operation goal and increases your chance of claiming a top spot among your Operation group. The more signs you collect, the more you move up to a higher tier where even greater prizes await. Signs can be used to unlock nodes in an entirely new level of the Ascension Atlas specific to each invasionary force.
Aelion’s Call also includes a vast number of major gameplay changes and improvements to Skyforge. The full list of patch notes will be made available on Skyforge.com ahead of the update.
