Fallen Earth players can now rest easy and wipe that sweatoff their brow as a release date has been announced for the much-anticipated Blood Sports content patch (v1.4)! Including four newly-designed PvP areas, more than 500 achievements, a Clan Wars system and the expansive region of Deadfall, the patch will be available for existing players on May 7.
With more than five months of development on a PvP update, developers at Fallen Earth are introducing Blood Sports, featuring four new PvP matches—Deathmatch, Survival, Capture the Flag and Assault—allowing players the opportunity to queue up for all-out brawls from anywhere in world. Deathtoll Points earned for participation and wins can also be used to purchase new, high-end PvP-oriented armor and gear. (But don’t worry, there will be no sore losers as all participants will score a few Deathtoll points for their efforts).
Additionally the Deadfall region, which expands the current level cap to 50, will introduce more than 130 new missions, extended storylines, mutant mounts and several new craftable items with a new component. In Deadfall, players will experience a vastly changed landscape with five new settlements to explore.
Aside from new content, the Blood Sports patch also contains a slew of improvements, including refined animations, an effects revamp and also a one-time respec opportunity.
Existing Fallen Earth subscribers will have access to the content patch beginning May 7, and new players will be able to purchase Fallen Earth Blood Sports from several digital and retail outlets, which includes the Blood Sports content patch in addition to all the original Fallen Earth content.
Curious players may test the new content on the Public Test Server as portions of the Blood Sports patch are pushed to PTS throughout the upcoming weeks.
“We are thrilled to be able to launch all of the new content in one major patch,” said Fallen Earth Project Manager, Colin Dwan.“The team has worked very hard to make this happen and we’re sure players will enjoy all of the new gameplay enhancements!”
