On December 11th, Skyforge will expand again with the Distant Frequencies content addition. It features the new support class called the Soundweaver, essentially a bard-esque class that “sets up portable loudspeakers on the battlefield to simultaneously amp up their allies’ morale” and inspire all around.
Skyforge players can head into the game for thrills and chills thanks to the arrival of the annual Evil Pumpkin Festival. During the 2-week event, players will meet Candy Bandits during their adventures and even hunt them for goodies. Candy Bandits can drop special caches that can contain a number of costumes.
The Skyforge team has posted its Q4 roadmap that provides players with a peek at what’s in the pipeline for the balance of 2018. Let’s just say that’s it’s definitely “out of this world”! A two-part update will be deployed to the game that will allow players to participate in interstellar travel “by means of space time wormholes”. Along the way, a new planet that is environmentally favorable to player races will be discovered, but with plenty to keep them occupied.
Skyforge has been updated to bring the standalone Battle Royale mode into the game. Battle Royale is a separate game mode and players are not required to have characters in the main Skyforge game. Simply launch Skyforge and choose Battle Royale to be sent to the new game mode and to choose a premade character to duke it out with other former gods to become the last one standing.
The Skyforge site has been updated with a lengthy article to reveal how battle royale will play out in the new game mode coming soon. As expected, the ultimate goal of the Skyforge Battle Royale mode is to be the last player standing, but there are a number of ways any player can increase their chances of being “the one”.
In a new FAQ on the Skyforge site, My.com lays out the details for the upcoming Battle Royale mode. One of the first questions answered is “Why battle royale?” The answer is a simple one: Battle royale is very popular in gaming these days and devs wanted to include a mini-game for others to enjoy within Skyforge. “It’s simple, exciting, and offers a unique experience” they wrote.
My.com has announced that it is bringing a battle royale mode to Skyforge, combining sci-fi and fantasy into the “last player standing” gameplay feature. “Out of all the participants that start the match, only one can stand victorious in this divine test and win the ultimate favor of the gods” reads the press announcement. The new Battle Royale Mode can be started directly from the launch screen and no characters or progress in the MMO is required.
Skyforge has been updated with the Gods of War patch that brings significant changes to PvP. The goal, according to a recent developer blog, is to “improve the rewards as well as finding a complex solution to the current PvP issues in Skyforge”. Starting today, players can find out how well those issues have been addressed.
Starting on April 11th, PC Skyforge players will be able to start rooting around in the Overgrowth expansion. Console players will be able to get their hands dirty starting on April 12th. The expansion brings the Grovewalker class to the game, a class that are “highly proficient mages that sling wild nature magic at foes from afar”. Those who want to wade in tank-style can do so after summoning their living armor.
