Servers will be down for 5-10 minutes while they update and restart.
Today we have big updates to survival mode including much needed bug fixes and a whole new map called Shadows. Survival Shadows is the new ‘hard’ difficulty map and is inspired by extremely difficult games like Devil Daggers and is not meant for new players. Survival mode has also gone from a 10 minute victory timer to about 5 minutes so that it’s easier to try out multiple classes.
We also have added in music in various places and made some changes to the on hit enemy health bar so that it gives better information. Last of the notable changes are bug fixes and nerfs to Nature’s passive spell that allows her to turn into a rabbit. This passive should now be more balanced with the other classes spells.
Replaced the old hard difficulty map with a new one called Shadows. It is based on a new scenario and has a much higher difficulty level. This new map is for more experienced players looking for a challenge.
Added a Victory/Defeat screen to Survival mode with restart and other buttons.
Fixed a bug where the character select menu was coming up a 2nd time.
Added a music track.
Added opening screens which include some backstory and objectives.
Fixed hit effects on the golems.
