Embers of Rage: Release date!

 

Mark your calendars my minions!

 

Embers of Rage will be available on the 23rd February of the year 2016 (yes that is in one week!) !

 

What is Embers of Rage ?

It is the latest expansion for Tales of Maj'Eyal, and not a puny small thing at that! It is a whole new campaign that will take your characters from level 1 to 50 in a full set of brand new zones/quests/lore.

One year has passed since the one the Orcs call the "Scourge from the West" came and single-handedly crushed the Orc Prides of Grushnak, Vor, Gorbat, and Rak'Shor.  The Allied Kingdoms, now linked by farportal to their distant, long-lost Sunwall allies, have helped them conquer most of Var'Eyal.  The few remnants of the ravaged Prides are caged...  but one Pride remains.  Kruk Pride, isolated on an island, is the last orcish settlement that stands; they, too, face their impending doom.  The Sunwall has blockaded the only exit point from the island, and now, the technologically advanced civilization of Steam Giants have come down from the mountains to take their homeland with machines and weaponry unlike anything else on Eyal.  Kruk Pride has reverse-engineered their technology before; their only hope is to do it again and rise up against the Pride's foes.

 

What is inside ?

So many things! If you think a whole new campaign is great wait until you learn that you get 3 new races to play the campaign with:

  • the Orcs (obviously!), fighting for the very survival of their race; the Kruk pride is all that is left
  • the Yetis, well kinda! An orc mind in a powerful yeti's body!
  • the Whitehooves, of which I will only say the name ;)

 

What would be a Tales of Maj'Eyal expansion without new classes? Good thing you'll also get 3 new classes:

All of which are part of the Tinker metaclass:

  • learn to maw down your foes as a Sawbutcher, dual wielding steam-powered saws to bring hot steamy mayhem to your foes!
  • become a master Gunslinger, filling your foes with bullets fired by your steam-powered guns; be elusive, be evasive, fire away and be awesome!
  • merge machine and mind with the Psyshot, of which I will not speak any more ;)

 

But what would be a good tinker without items to improve and craft ? Nothing!

All tinker classes (and all other classes can learn) start with the ability to craft powerful items to improve their equipment. Do you need to run fast? strap Rocket Boots to your shoes! Do you need a quick heal? Inject a Healing Salve directly into your bloodstream! Do you love fire and flames? Strap an Incendiary Groove to your weapon!

There are over 70 crafts to choose and use.

 

The expansion also comes with a full contingent of artifacts, deadly foes, achievements and such. The classic stuff ;)

 

So, get ready! Oh and I may be posting a few teasers between now and the release, just to keep people ... teased ;)

Cool!

Cool!

GoG?

Sounds exciting! Just wondering if it'll be available on GoG right from the beginning, or if that will take a little longer still?

Yay!

Finally! And just in time... on my second run through XCOM2.

Cyber-torture soon coming our

Cyber-torture soon coming our way! This game makes me scream in agony; yet still I'm eager to pay for more.
I didn't know you could be in an abusive relationship with a game. Until i played ToME that is.

Just when i thought i had grown tired of gaming I found out about ToME and got passionate about it again. It has been many (many!) years since I've been this enthusiastic about a game. Thank you DarkGod for reviving my life long hobby. I'm really looking forward to investing more time in your universe!

SUPER MUCH AWESOME YAYNESS!!!!!!!

YAY! My twitch viewers will be pumped!!! (Let's just hope I can afford the expansion)

Thank you!

Thank you!

Any word on the price?

I assume it will be 40 like ashes not that it matters because I'm gonna buy it on release date regardless xD HYPE!!!

more

DG said at some point that it will be more than Ashes, since it is way more content (own campaign etc instead of just added in stuff), but i dont know specifics either, obviously

Yay!

Fantastic news. Can't wait. One question - what time on the 23rd? I need to know if I should book the day off!

More Rage!

The final weekend for HYPE is upon us. Any chance of some more teasers ? :D
