Free-to-play magic battle royale Spellbreak has received a new update. Spellbreak update 1.1 should have gone live this morning, but instead was released last night. It contains a whole bunch of bug fixes and tweaks to the gameplay.
What's in Spellbreak Update 1.1?
As per the official Spellbreak patch notes, most of what's been added in Update 1.1 (which is also called Patch 1.08 on console for slightly unclear reasons) consists of improvements to "stability and performance across all of our platforms". There are some pretty major fixes - console vibration settings now work correctly, for example, and some exploits have been fixed - but for the most part, the improvements and changes in Spellbreak update 1.1 are under the hood. A number of crashes or black screens that have been reported are fixed as well. There are different fixes for different platforms, too, so be sure to check out the full Spellbreak patch notes for more info.
What's next for Spellbreak?
Going forward, Spellbreak developer Proletariat says it wants its patches and updates to contain new content and gameplay as well as the usual bug fixes and tweaks. New stuff that's coming to the game in the future includes a Chapter system, a 9v9 Clash mode, and new Consumables, with more long-term goals including new classes, ranked modes, and limited-time modes. You can check out the full Spellbreak roadmap over here, when we covered it previously.
