Updates to Spiral Knights have been released. The major changes include:
New Danger Mission: Compound 42 Spiral HQ has uncovered a gremlin bioweapons facility deep within the Clockworks. It is believed that this facility belongs to a member of the Crimson Order known only as ‘Herex.’ The Recon Rangers have been tasked with infiltrating the facility and uncovering the nature of Herex’s bioweapons before they are put to use.
Compound 42 is a new Danger Mission, intended for skilled players. It is available in the Prestige Mission section of the Mission interface.
