Plarium has just dropped a massive post on their official forum announcing the launch of the Shadowkin Faction in the upcoming patch 3.4.
Here is what they had to say:
Update 3.40 is nearing release, and we’re ready to present you guys with a list of cool features that will be included. You can expect some quality-of-life adjustments such as the ability to tag your Champions in the Collection. In addition to all that, a whole new Faction – the mighty Shadowkin – arrives to Teleria! Curious to learn more? Then read on!
Shrouded in mystery, the Shadowkin hail from the furthest reaches of the Eastern Continent, beyond the Brimstone Path. Believed to have been under the brutal heel of the Demonspawn for the last several hundred years, only recently have they cast of Siroth’s yoke and thrown their lot in with the other factions of the world. Fearsome warriors all, their years bent to evil purpose have left a darkness about them. They have much to atone for, and only time will tell if they have truly regained their honor…
Yep, a whole new faction is coming to Teleria! The mysterious Shadowkin are heavily based on Asian mythology and aesthetics, all brought in line with the overall dark fantasy style of Raid: Shadow Legends. We’re planning to expand the faction gradually, with batches of new Champions arriving throughout multiple updates. Worry not, we’re not going to unlock a Shadowkin Crypt in the Faction Wars until later, when there are enough Champions for you to make a solid team.
And here are the brave pioneers be coming to Raid when 3.40 drops:
A small addition to the game is the Champion Tags feature. As the name suggests, it will allow you to tag various Champions in your collection, and these tags will be visible on the Champion selection screen before battles. It should make life a lot easier for those who have duplicate Champions with different builds. Even those who don’t use duplicates might find it more convenient to select their teams once they have a few Champions marked for specific roles.
