Starting today, Skyforge players can take part in a log in event that will last through April 24th. Players will be able to claim a box each day that contains an assortment of different prizes. In addition, the team is promising some springtime activities and will be revealing more about that in the upcoming days.
With the arrival of the New Horizons update to Skyforge on PC, players will be traveling to a brand new planet to experience the game’s largest map to date. The fate of Terra rests in the hands of players as they take on a new race of enemies and explore the planet to learn more of its secrets. Players are charged with eliminating threats and collecting information during their travels. New Horizons will be out for PlayStation 4 and XBox One on April 11th.
Skyforge players will have new content to explore when the New Horizon expansion launches on April 9th. A mysterious new race has been discovered that will send players off on a journey of discovery to a new planet. The events in New Horizons take off from the Distant Frequencies expansion as players head out on a reconnaissance mission to find the planet Terra.
The Skyforge site has been updated with the latest in-game activity for players. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, players can take part in the King’s Ransom activity, the “go-to place to test your luck”. Players will earn an event-specific currency that can be traded for boxes that can contain some nifty prizes. The event runs through March 19th.
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.
