The full release notes for the upcoming Spellbreak Season 2 update have been released. The update will include a brand new game mode, seasonal ranked leagues, and an absolute smorgasbord of balance changes and gameplay tweaks. It's launching tomorrow.
What's coming in Spellbreak Season 2?
There are two major features being added in Season 2 of Spellbreak. Dominion is a brand new 5v5 objective-centered mode revolving around controlling zones on one of four random maps. You'll need to take down other players and NPC enemies in order to earn potions and scrolls and earn the right to visit the Merchant. To prepare for Dominion, the Clash mode is being put on the back burner, so you can focus your energies on the new mode. If you want to know more about Dominion, you can check out a more exhaustive analysis of all its features right here.
In addition to Dominion, Spellbreak Season 2 also sees the introduction of new ranked leagues. Each season, making good plays in matches will earn you Accolades, which will in turn earn Crowns to help you progress towards league Tiers. Completing ten Tiers advances you to the next league. The leagues ascend as follows: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Legendary. Games in Gold and above will cost Crowns to take part in, and you risk losing Crowns if you don't do well. To combat this, every five Tiers, there's a milestone below which you can't fall. You'll get Titles and Badges corresponding to your rank at the end of each season. You can read more about the new ranked modes here.
What balance changes are coming in Spellbreak Season 2?
As well as these two major additions, there are also a whole host of balance changes and tweaks coming in Season 2 of Spellbreak. These include the chance to resurrect players in the Battle Royale mode, tweaks to the way the final circle works, and tweaks to how gravity operates. You'll also find console performance and visual improvements including 4K support for PS5, PS4 Pro, and Xbox Series X, as well as Switch gyroscope control smoothing and more.
