Spellbreak’s first major post-launch update is coming this month

‘The Gathering Storm’ on October 22

Spellbreak, the spell-slinging fantasy-themed battle royale, is finally out of early access. Naturally, the next step is seasonal updates, which developer Proletariat is ready to talk about.

Teased via a new trailer, the 1.0 edition of the game will be updated on October 22, at which point the “Prologue: The Gathering Storm” edition will hit. Billed as a “major” update, clash mode (team deathmatch) will be the big highlight, as well as new talents, cosmetics and items. It’ll be free, naturally.

Digging in, clash will be framed as a 9v9 team deathmatch gametype with squads of three. The cosmetic side is also themed around Halloween, with extras as in-depth as afterglows and emotes in addition to outfits (skins). Variety is something Spellbreak sorely needs, so a new mode should hopefully keep people playing without cannibalizing queue times.

You can also find the basic rundown below, straight from the developer.

Spellbreak’s latest update includes:

  • New Content — Prologue: The Gathering Storm will be free to all players and feature weekly quests with unique rewards

  • Introducing Clash Mode — 9v9 team deathmatch with 3 squads on each team

  • New Talents — Enable players to further customize their playstyle

    • Vigor: Bonus health

    • Ambidextrous: Enables the passive class ability in your offhand gauntlet

    • Foresight: Reveals nearby  players on your minimap and shows future shrines/circles

  • Halloween Content — New Outfits, Artifacts, Cloudbursts, Afterglows, Emotes, and Badges! Just in time for  “Hollowed Eve!”
