Introducing the Chaos Wastes!

  • Explore the Chaos Wastes together with your fellow heroes in this new rogue-lite inspired game mode. Build your team from the ground up, decide your tactics together and prepare for the unexpected. The farther your team progresses, the greater the reward, but beware: failure to reach the expedition’s end may rob you of the fruits of your labor.
  • Head out on expeditions and explore 15 new unique locations. Trust your instincts during your explorations, the path you took yesterday can be inaccessible or obliterated. Your mission is to locate the rumored Citadel of Eternity in the search for salvation - at any cost.
  • No two expeditions are the same. Thus, the choices you make are more important than ever and can tip the scales, from life to death. Choose carefully as you equip new weapons, boons, miracles, and more as you progress through the expeditions.
  • Throughout your journey, you may encounter areas that are cursed. When you enter a cursed area, the landscape itself is influenced by its current ruler which dramatically changes the way you need to play. So, prepare for an extra challenge as a cursed area also brings a more sinister threat.
