  • Due to the engine update, overall game file size has been reduced by ~18Gb on Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5.

New Store

  • New Store available, replacing the previous one:
  • Featured Page: Latest releases and Chapters, and the addition of the Weekly Gift feature.
  • Weekly Gift: Allows players to claim free rewards during multiple weeks, if activated. Rewards are renewed per week, meaning that unclaimed ones are discarded when the week is reset.

  • Collections Page: Houses all Collections that exist in the game, and shows their content. Players can also unlock Cosmetics directly from there!

  • Players can now select Characters and Cosmetics without having to equip them immediately.
  • Clicking on an option allows players to preview the Character or Cosmetic.
  • Selecting the Character or equipping the Cosmetic confirms their choice.
  • Being able to preview allows players to preview pieces from different locked and unlocked Cosmetics, mix and matching options to be able to “try them out” before unlocking them.
  • Players can now filter their Cosmetics with different options, and are able to show all options that are currently unavailable!
  • Previewing Perks, Powers and Moris:
  • Players now can open a little section that displays the Power and Perks of any Character that is currently selected, allowing for a smoother way to review and compare their Characters’ gameplay.

  • These were made a part of the Characters’ Wardrobes.
  • They showcase the Characters’ lore, height, speed and Terror Radius size. Power and Perks were moved to the Power and Perks window.
  • Common:
  • Unlocking is now done with a press and hold mechanic to allow for a confirmation process free of pop ups.
  • The section for getting more Auric Cells can now be accessed through the Store, and it can also be accessed by clicking the Auric Cells counter on the top right corner of the screen.
  • Kill switched options are going to be available for unlocking, yet we are making sure to communicate it with a pop up for players to confirm they still want to proceed.
  • Search bars have been included in most sections to allow finding Characters, Collections, and Cosmetics easier.
  • Added a celebration pop up to better communicate that players have unlocked content or earned a reward at the Store.
  • Shrine of Secrets:
  • The Shrine was taken out of the Store and placed in the Characters’ lobbies, to be closer to the loadout and Bloodweb.
