A storm is gathering in the battle royale title Spellbreak. A prologue of things to come. How do we know that? Because we’ve been told about Prologue: The Gathering Storm, the first seasonal content update that will land on Thursday, October 22nd, free to all players with a number of new things to do.
The title of this update references a variety of new weekly quests that players will get to tackle offering unique rewards as well as a first taste of how developer Proletariat plans on delivering story content to the game. For those who’d rather not be fussed by story in their multiplayer spell-based shooter, there will also be Clash mode, a 9v9 deathmatch mode that pits three squads of three against one another.
The Gathering Storm will also introduce some new Talents for players to further customize their mage like a talent that reveals nearby players on the minimap as well as future shrines and circles or a talent that enables the passive class ability in the offhand gauntlet. Finally, Spellbreak will be celebrating the Halloween season with a number of thematically appropriate outfits, artifacts, cloudbursts, afterglows, emotes, and badges.
