Additional details on this update via Spellbreak Blog
The beginnings of the Chapter system will reunite you with Avira Emberdane, who will help further hone your skills as a battlemage, and earn some tasty cosmetics along the way.
Clash, our 9v9 team deathmatch mode, will kick-off during the Prologue. Clash is an excellent way to blow off steam and get into some non-stop Spellbreak combat as you battle another team in a race to a predetermined number of exiles. (It’s also great for completing some of the harder quests!)
It’s time for a spooky Holloween (not canon!). Some tricks and treats will be coming to the store.
Three new 3-point Talents. Your builds are about to get a lot harder to plan!
New (and some reworked) Consumables, including a brand new gameplay-affecting one
For those who haven’t joined the millions yet and are interested in out thoughts, here’s what our reviewer for Spellbreak had to say:
Spellbreak is a fun new take on the BR genre, one that I think will differentiate itself enough away from the big hitters. The early access version that is out is surprisingly polished, and while I did have a fun time with the game, I’m more interested in seeing what they bring down the line for the map and new spells.
