Not long after the release of the Crucible of the Gods update, My.com has just announced the next Skyforge update Aelion’s Call, scheduled to arrive on September 16th. The update brings bug fixes, class balancing, the second Skyforge raid, a system that allows low prestige players to catch up with their high prestige friends, and more.
Here is the official description of the major features to come with Aelion’s Call, while we wait for the full patch notes:
New Raid “Operation Madea”: Centuries ago, a Mechanoid flagship crash landed on Aelion’s surface during a failed Invasion, appearing to have been completely disabled in the process. However, recent activity has proven this false – The Mechanoids inside have reactivated and Phytonides have overgrown much of the ship’s innards. A Group of 10 immortals can take part in this Raid, exploring the deepest recesses of this unknown technological marvel in an effort to put a stop to the Invader’s renewed plans.
Catch-Up System: Players that have just began their adventures in Aelion or have taken an extended leave of absence are now capable of catching up to those who have been playing since the start of Open Beta. The system allows for faster progression, through promo adventures, enabling these players to progress at a rapid pace. As a player gets further to the current maximum obtainable by old players, the amount of bonus rewards decreases, resulting in a small gap between them and the veteran players.
Operations: Introducing Operations, where up to 40 players compete for valuable rewards during Invasions! Now when an Invasion becomes active, players are capable of earning Signs of the currently invading army by completing any Adventure which features representatives of that faction. Earning Signs both completes your personal Operation goal and increases your chance of claiming a top spot among your Operation group. The more signs you collect the more you move up to a higher tier where even greater prizes await! Signs collected during this time are used to unlock nodes in an entirely new level of the Ascension Atlas specific to each invasionary force!
