Greetings Battlemages! 


The Echollector Update arrives today, November 16th, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, along with the console Free Trial and PC Demo! We’ve got all the details in the patch notes below (including some spoilers). But don’t take our word for it, go check it out in game now! 

New Game+: 

  • We’ve added New Game+ as an option to begin a new playthrough while preserving key progression features.
  • The player starts New Game+ as a Magnus in the Light’s Army. The new playthrough begins in the Yltheum Chapter, bypassing the introductory Streetwise and The Magnus Chapters. 
  • Gear, resources, talents, Arcanum, and health and mana upgrades carry over from the previous playthrough.
  • All unlocked spells and abilities carry over EXCEPT Augment spells (Grapple, Disrupt, Animate, etc.) due to their unlock requirements. 
  • Epic and Legendary gear can be upgraded to higher levels in the Forge.
  • Enemy health, damage, and abilities have been rebalanced, and experience and currency earned have been adjusted to scale with New Game+ progression. 


Grand Magnus Difficulty Mode:

  • We’ve added the new “Grand Magnus” game difficulty option that provides players with tougher combat challenges throughout the game. 
  • “Grand Magnus” difficulty can be selected anytime, whether it’s your first playthrough or you’re starting New Game+. 
  • Enemy health, defense, power, and behavior have been adjusted. 
  • Combat is more intense, there are fewer health drops, and swapping between spells and abilities will be essential to survival. 


“The Echollector” Gameplay Update: SPOILERS ALERT

  •  “The Echollector” gameplay update brings new endgame objectives to Immortals of Aveum. Spoilers lie below, so skip ahead if you’d prefer to experience it all in the game first.
    • The new content automatically becomes available when the player reaches Glaivegate.
    • Shatterfanes - these are corrupted Shroudfanes that lead to new hidden areas and tough battles. 
    • New Gear - Within the Shatterfanes, players will be rewarded with all-new gear items to take on their journey, including a new bracer, two rings, Limpets vial, and a legendary sigil. 
    • Discover new lore and face an epic boss battle with the ancient being, The Echollector.
