MAPS

  • New Siege map: Splitstone Quarry
  • Environment Art
    • “We are bringing a whole new art set and visual look to the Realm with our latest siege map, Splitstone Quarry. Set deep in a large scale gold mining operation it was an opportunity to explore a more industrial setting. It also allowed us to showcase an area that ties heavily into the backstories of a couple of our champions and introduce new types of environmental hazards.”
  • Level Design
    • “Splitstone Quarry’s capture point is cut into the deepest section of the quarry and forces players to defend from above while contesting the objective. While there are quick side routes, flankers will have to watch out for dangerous environmental hazards. The payload must be pushed through a corridor that emphasizes long range firefights.”

CHAMPIONS

  • General
    • All champions are now immune to damage when in a base healing volume.
    • Ultimates are no longer usable in a base healing volume.
    • All Emotes will now lock players out of all actions, including movement for 2s. Emotes may be interrupted at any time after the 2s lockout.

“We think it’s really cool that players can emote to enter 3rd person with free rotation whenever they want, however, emoting had too many gameplay advantages without any risk. Players could use emotes to look around corners with very little risk. Now, emoting will be a little more risky, but there will be no benefit to using shorter emotes.”
