Greetings warriors!

Season Two, Shadow & Might, is live! The team worked very hard to provide you with two incredible new heroes, Centurion and Shinobi, as well as two beautiful new maps, a new gear system and more! This week the team is really focused on gathering your feedback and making sure you have the best experience possible. Let us know what you think about this new content on the forums and Reddit, and if you encounter any technical issues, please contact our Customer Support.

If you missed the Shadow & Might launch livestream, featuring high level gameplay by Twitch streamers and community players, interviews with the devs and more, make sure to catch the VOD here. If you missed the last Warrior’s Den episode, where we provided in depth details about each new hero with Game Director Roman, catch it right here.

This week, we are releasing new Battle outfits and Bats Mood FX, and releasing more details on the new gear stats system (see below). We also published a new list of known issues on the forums, revamped our Player Activities website and are bringing back some cool creations from the community!


New season, new content! Brace for multiple new options to customize your characters, with three different outfits for each and every one of the heroes (Shinobi and Centurion included, of course), and also a brand new bats effect.

These can be unlocked in the Heroes’ customization area.


In order to give you visibility on the different issues we are working on at the moment, we published a list of known issues in a different format on the forums, so you can comment and let us know if you are experiencing some of these issues. That way it’s easier to find a workaround and discuss these topics. We will populate this section as we start investigating new bugs and issues. You can find this new section right here.


Last week we published this article explaining what we changed the gear stats system. This week we are providing more info on each individual stats: what they do and how can they be activated. See below:
