Pyramid of Prophecy, DLC early next year!

TLDR, screenshots below all this text:

Today we are announcing the upcoming DLC Pyramid of Prophecy, which we have been working on for the last few months. A full featured payed DLC that extends the game with a new campaign, an arena survival mode, new class (gladiator), new enemies, new bosses, new items/drinks/blessings and a lot more!

The price will land at probably 7USD/EUR and expected release early next year.

We are trying to solve so that people that can't afford the DLC or just don't want to buy it, still can play with the content in coop if the server has the DLC, we will see where all this lands.

Small lore:
Down the slopes from the The Outlook, lays the City of Stone. This time of the year it usually lays dormant because of the intense heat, workers in the quarry tend to travel through the desert up north to the Arena in hopes of betting in one of the fights, or travel west in the direction of the Sun Temple.

- Guildmaster Les once told me this sick story about a pyramid close to the City of Stone, that got burred by a huge sand storm a long long time ago, I wonder what that was all about... he tells these stories.

Other heroes have been trying to find it over the years, but the dangers of the desert and the fact that the pyramid is buried in sand has made it difficult - if it actually exists. Strengthened from freeing Shaftlocke Tower and killing Thundersnow the Dragon our own heroes decides to try and see if this pyramid actually exists.


The crowd is going wild right now!

Should I risk crossing the stream of burning oil?

No wonder so many people disappear out in the desert.

Expect more info and videos before the end of the year!

Also, in case you missed it, it has nothing to do with this game or this DLC, but we released a small HW2 video some time ago, if you haven't seen it, check that out too.
