The Witching Hour
Join us beginning October 16th for The Witching Hour, our new Halloween seasonal event! Gotham City will be decorated for the season, Klarion the Witch Boy will be causing all kinds of ghoulish trouble, and there will be tricks and treats to be had by all!
Research and Development Update!
With Game Update 19 we have added more components and plans to create new Research and Development consumables! Players will have a chance to find these new plans from endgame bosses throughout the game.
Some of the new components, which are required for developing the new items, are available for purchase from Research & Development vendors. Two vendors are now located at Research and Development stations within the Headquarters, one sells only plans and the other, only components. Other new components are dropped by NPCs of various types throughout the game.
The new Research & Development consumables have a variety of potential functions, ranging from offensive combat abilities to disguises for the player!
When players make new characters and go through The Awakening on Brainiac’s ship, they will encounter some new units trying to prevent their escape. Players will need to master Combat Counter mechanics in order to get past these new foes before making it off the ship.
New Mail UI!
We have given the Mail UI a complete overhaul! Beyond the new sleek look, it is now much easier to use! Some of the new features we have added include a Sent tab to see outgoing mail, and an Archive tab for those mails players wish to keep in a safe spot!
A new Compose tab is present as well and features a list of Contacts that will populate with your League mates and friends list! Additionally a bigger, more easily navigated inventory window is now available to players when attaching items to your mail!
