Patch Notes 1.17
Introducing our newest playable champion, Dyn!
Formed in a nebulae containing unique and specific properties over eons is Dyn, a being of ever-growing curiosity, knowledge, and mischief. Ever-driven, Dyn set out to the stars to find and collect purpose and what if found was a universe far stranger and more exciting than it ever could’ve imagined. It was in this spirit of that curiosity and playful mischief that it explored much of the known galaxy, becoming infamous for its capricious moods and mastery of energy. Eventually, after many lifetimes of experiences Dyn decided to find the one thing it never discovered in its travels: another nebula being. To that end, it joined the Battleverse Games, the first energy being to do so. Through the fame it earns in the ritual combat of the arena, Dyn hopes to finally experience that which has eluded it for so long: family.
Dyn is a close-ranged offensive elementalist which preforms devastating electric and sound wave attacks. Debuting with 19 abilities for dozens of unique builds, champion specific trophies, and it’s own bot-doppelganger Dyn is bringing a fun new dynamic to the Battleverse Arena. Make sure to follow us on Instagram for a Dyn showcase this Friday, April 9th!
New game modes: Free For All & Battle Ball
We’ve add two new game modes to the Battleverse Arena! You can access both of these new modes via the game mode select menu.
Free For All
As the name suggests, 4 champions will descend into the arena, and only one will leave. It’s every player for themselves with 2 respawn chances and the only goal is to be the last one standing! Set in the Oasis map champions will enter from 4 corners in a seek-and-destroy fashion, utilizing clever loadouts and capturing power-ups to dominate their opponents.
Also taking place on the Oasis map, the Battle Ball will spawn in the center and your goal is to hold the ball for the longest period of time. Holding the ball will increase the damage you take by 3% per second, and slow your movement speed by 1.5% per second. While you can attack and defeat other champions while holding the ball, it’s ultimately up to you to decide how you’ll prevail!
- New and vastly improved game-mode select menu to get you in the arena quicker.
- New versus intro and outro screens where you can check out your opponents load-out tooltips in an easy to digest way.
- New end of match screen will now display a Glory & XP breakdown and introduce a rewards spinner for a chance to get ability packs.
‘Try It’ feature
Brand new to the Battleverse is our “Tri it” feature, which allows you to try any champion’s full range of abilities directly from the ability menu or the training gym. Mix and match to find your best load-out combos before you spend your hard earned Glory. To access this feature from the training gym tap the in the top right corner of the screen, then drag and drop your preferred abilities into your load out. You can tap and hold to read each ability’s tooltip. To access this feature from a champion’s ability menu, tap an ability then tap the ‘Try” button on the right.
Queue with a friend
We are we well on our way to developing an integrated ‘Friends’ system and the first stop has arrived. Now you can share auto-generated codes with your friends to team up to dominate other champions or against them to settle a grudge match! Now available via the game mode select menu you can choose to host or join a game. Hosting will provide you with a code to give to your friends, and joining will let you enter one to join.
