Cooperative Community Challenge for Content!



Every week for almost a year now there's a unique Weekly Challenge that lets you experience Renowned Explorers in a fresh new way. This week marks the 50th of these challenges! It's a testament to the spirit of this community. To celebrate this occasion challenge #50 is a very special one...

See the challenge right away.

For starters Challenge 50 is a cooperative challenge in which the community has a shared goal of achieving 100,000 to 500,000 Renown! On top of that this challenge has a special set of rewards, of which the most exciting one is that the monks here at the Abbey will actually create unique new content if certain Renown thresholds are achieved. That's right, if you play a nice round of Renowned Explorers we'll squeeze in extra hours to get you new content for the upcoming patch. Of course the next DLC will be our main priority still. Find the full list of rewards below!

Livestream date:
Wednesday November 16

Link to the challenge

A third reason this challenge is very special is that its the 5th challenge that is set-up by the community itself (even though we stepped in to provide rewards). Originally we ran it ourselves, but when we decided to focus more on development instead, some members in the community stepped up to continue the tradition. We're grateful every week.

New DLC
Don't forget, Abbey Games is working on a new paid DLC for next year which will be different from More To Explore in ways that yet need to be revealed. Make sure you're subscribed to the Game Group to be made aware when it comes out!

We hope you'll participate in the challenge and show us what this community can do!

Have fun and see you next Wednesday,
Abbey Games

Reviews

“It's genuinely great, like, it's one of my favorite games this year so far. It's got so much going for it, so much depth, so much character, so much replayability, great systems, unique concepts in combat, awesome presentation...”
TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit

“Here’s where I start to love Renowned Explorers. The encounters aren’t just a paper/rock/scissors system of aggressive, friendly, or devious. The more pertinent choice is whether you’re going to talk or fight. Either approach has distinct rules, with some characters suited to one or the other.”
100 – Quartertothree - Tom Chick

“...Renowned Explorers still stands as one of the best surprises of the year so far that wannabe adventurers of any age can enjoy. Encountering some thugs but instead of fighting, it just turns into one great big insult throwing contest where the loser runs away, foaming at the mouth. Brilliant.”
85 – Gamewatcher - John Paul Jones
