1.1 Update Notes | Rise of Furia


Sarah prayed to the Eternal Pyre for the strength to fight the Abyss and avenge her fallen sister. Her prayers were answered.

Relive the day the city of Seris was destroyed and thousands of souls were cast into the Abyss. You have been trapped in the vile recesses of this ancient hell… but there is still hope. Race against your doom and climb the Abyssal Spire. As you slay the wretched shadows atop, you’ll earn Abyssal Shards which can be exchanged for exclusive Rise of Furia event items. Face off in an epic Team Death Match at the top in front of the Abyssal Lord himself. Remember, child: Even in the blackest night, the Pyre will light your path.

Event Overview

Climb the Spire

Climb out of the Abyss, jumping from platforms, collecting Pyre Blessings, and racing up the Abyssal Spire with your team. Be careful along the way: one wrong step and you might fall into the Abyss itself. Once atop the Spire, face off against your shadows to determine which of you has earned the right to escape in front of the Lord of Abyss himself.

Collect Abyssal Shards

Climb the Spire and collect Abyssal Shards for every kill your team earns at the top, or purchase Bundles to speed up the process.

Unlock New Cosmetics!

There are over 15 new cosmetics this patch, including new Music Themes! Spend your Abyssal Shards and unlock exclusive content only available during the Rise of Furia event. To gain access to the event store, you must purchase one skin bundle.

Event Details

The Champions
  • Players are assigned a random Champion to race up the spire.
  • Both teams are comprised of the same Champions.

The Climb
  • Players have increased movement speed and jump height to help them traverse the Abyssal Spire.
  • Players are unable to damage or impede their opponents’ progress during the climb.
  • The Abyss will slowly rise during the Climb, forcing players towards the top. Falling into the Abyss will reset you to the lowest current checkpoint.
  • Pyre’s Blessing are placed throughout the climb, providing ultimate charge to the team who can grab them first!
  • Destroying the Crystal near the top will unlock the Abyssal Spire’s Arena, bringing all players to the top of the Spire. The team that unlocks the Arena earns additional ultimate charge.

The Fight
  • The fight follows Team Deathmatch Rules - first team to 30 kills wins the match.
