Greetings from Plarium!
Update 6.40 is all but ready for release, and we’re here once more to highlight its most important features. You will get to enjoy the 4th Anniversary Titan Event – merely an appetizer for Raid’s 4th Anniversary, but it will be huge in its own right! – and try the brand-new Plarium Program with its rewards and benefits. Furthermore, we’ll introduce a new type of Reward Chest, a couple of QoL adjustments, a cohort of new Champions, and some balance changes to the old ones. All in all, there’s no lack of things to enjoy this January!
And if you want to find out more, you just have to keep reading.
4th Anniversary Titan Event
This time, we will do everything in our power to celebrate Raid Anniversary on time, and we’ve even prepared a vast 4th Anniversary Titan Event to give you a taste of what’s to come. It will encompass several elements: Hero’s Path Events, Tournaments, and a few of your garden variety game Events to boot. Participating in these activities will earn you Anniversary Points, though their overall number is limited and you’ll need to keep an eye out to see exactly when and how you can increase your score! In turn, those Points will let you claim rewards from the Titan Event interface, thus giving you more shiny stuff for doing the same amount of heroic legwork in Raid.
Those rewards include various resources, Random Chests (we’ll discuss that in a separate subsection below), new and unique Player Avatars, and even resources you’ll need for Champion Awakening. It should be a fairly straightforward experience, but we’ll add a dedicated Titan Event guide in its info tab when the first Event goes live – check it out for additional details!
This new type of Reward will be featured in the 4th Anniversary Titan Event and elsewhere (some existing Events and Tournaments, for example). The Chest itself will contain an item or resource randomly chosen from the predetermined reward pool. Random Chest comes in 5 tiers:
Naturally, Random Chests of higher tiers will provide greater rewards. Everything else is simple – you win the Chest, open it, and claim your prize. Done!
Plarium Points Program
This new feature will be available across all platforms, but it will be especially useful to Raiders who favor Plarium Play. By earning a new type of resource called Plarium Points in various game activities (Hero’s Path Events, Deck of Fate Events, Tournaments, and more besides), claiming them from Playtime Rewards and Advanced Quests, or getting them along with in-game purchases, you’ll get access to additional rewards.
To access the Plarium Points Program tab, you’ll just have to open the menu on the lefthand side of your Bastion screen and tap the icon. That will take you to a new tab, where all your hard-earned Plarium Points unlock various goodies. First you’ll see Special Cards – the most important rewards of the Plarium Points Program. These include a powerful Champion, Artifacts and Accessories most suitable for them, and resources to Awaken that Champion. On top of that, you can get a unique avatar, Legendary Champion Fragments, Split Souls, and extra Artifacts or Accessories.
Furthermore, a progress bar with multiple reward slots will be active, and it will yield additional rewards as you earn Plarium Points. Again, we’ll add a comprehensive guide to the info tab to describe the nitty-gritty details when the Plarium Program goes live!
Quality of Life Adjustments
There are two minor but rather convenient QoL upgrades to look forward to as well. First, you’ll be able to shuffle your team directly on the Tag Team Arena Battle Selection screen. Needless to say, that will be a lot faster than having to manually swap each Champion out.
Secondly, you’ll get to end an ongoing Multi-Battle right in the middle of it. There will be two options to do so:
- End Current Battle, which just stops the battle immediately.
- Stop Multi-Battle, which will let your Champions finish the battle but stop the current Multi-Battle sequence after that.
