“Following up on multiple hit expansion releases, this latest one introduces a new support class that can rely on its profound musical talent to inspire all around,” the studio says. “Raining down powerful sounds on their enemies, The Soundweaver sets up portable loudspeakers on the battlefield to simultaneously amp up their allies’ morale. Players can look forward to taking center stage and unleashing fiery guitar solos.”
And it’s not just a bard – it’s kind of a space bard, as My.com is basically positioning this expansion as the prelude to next year’s content rollout “off-planet.”
“The expansion will contain hints of larger things at play. A strange gravitational phenomenon occurred in space and players will be able to take part in the investigation of its origins. An all-new trailer introduces The Soundweaver as part of an expedition team touring an unknown piece of rock and revealing new species. The investigation of the phenomenon needs completion before players themselves are able to go on the interstellar campaign following “Distant Frequencies” in 2019.”
Distant Frequencies and the Soundweaver go live on December 11th for PC, a day after that for PS4, and a day after that on Xbox One.
