Hello People of the Fog,
Whether you relax by eating, disconnecting, or hanging survivors from hooks, we hope you had a great holiday season. We’re thrilled to kick off 2022 with this update. Get ready for a much-anticipated character, a new twist to our Ritual system, and a big opportunity to work together and unlock a mountain of rewards.
- Mikaela Reid comes to Mobile
- Blood Rituals + special Community Challenge
- New Customizations
A horror film aficionado with a mind for the mystic, Mikaela Reid provides crucial support through her various Boon Totems. Those who value teamwork will appreciate her unique gameplay possibilities and three unique perks, Clairvoyance, Boon: Circle of Healing, and Boon: Shadow Step.
Mikaela Reid is available now – read more here.
The introduction of Mikaela Reid also brings a new game mechanic – Boon Totems. Unlike Hex Totems, a Boon Totem benefits Survivors. Blessing a totem using one of Mikaela’s new Boon perks (Boon: Circle of Healing or Boon: Shadow Step) will cleanse it if it is hexed and imbue it with a beneficial effect. To remove this advantage, the Killer can perform an action to snuff it. Currently the only perks that can bless a totem with a Boon are Mikaela’s, but levelling her up and unlocking the perks as Teachable Perk allow them to be found and used by your other characters.
Not all Rituals are created equal. With this update comes a new type of Ritual event that will recur weekly and award bonus rewards. Blood Rituals will have similar tasks to standard Rituals – complete them before the time runs out! Keep an eye out in your Rituals tab for these special Rituals. To kick things off, there will be a week-long Blood Ritual event starting on February 4th, and we’re sweetening the pot with a Community Challenge.
Ritual Community Challenge
Alongside the Blood Ritual event comes a new Community Challenge. If you were with us through Halloween you know the drill. but ICYMI, Community Challenges work as follows: all players work together to reach a common goal. As milestones are hit, The Entity will reward you generously.
We’ll be tracking game data for Ritual completion from February 4th-11th. Each standard Ritual completed contributes towards the total – but Blood Rituals contribute double. Keep up on your Daily and Weekly Rituals to help the community earn big rewards! Keep your eye on our socials channels for more details this week.
Update on Coldwind Farm
We sense the anticipation for Coldwind Farm’s return. It’s been out of rotation for a while to undergo a visual revamp, but has taken longer than previous map reworks. In the past couple updates we’ve prioritized bringing new characters to the game, but we’re pleased to announce that Coldwind is just about wrapped up and will return in the next major update. We’ll do our best to get some sneak peeks to share with you along the way!
Here’s a preview of a new collection coming this update. Keep your eyes peeled for the Rockabilly Collection in the Store this Friday!
