If things are getting a bit samey for you in the standalone Black Desert battle royale game Shadow Arena, then the latest update might just shake things up for you. The game now has a new hero by the name of Tagahl Sherekhan. And doesn’t he look just thrilled to be here. Look at him. I bet he gives great hugs.
In celebration of the new arrival to the Shadow Arena roster, players are being given a free account-bound Hero Selection Coupon between now and July 9th. There’s also a contest that challenges players to write a guide for Tagahl to win a free skin. There are ten top prizes up for grabs, but nothing for the runners-up, so make sure to create a good guide.
In other Shadow Arena news, the devs have shared a list of player accounts that have been found breaking the terms of service. The vast majority of the bans are for “Production, Distribution, or Usage of Unauthorized Program/Macro,” and all of those who were found breaking that part of the ToS have been permanently restricted from the game. Seriously, play fair, people.
The game is still showing a peak of around 5000 concurrent players during its early access launch period.
