Every day we inch closer to releasing a lot of the awesome hard work that many of us here at Chromatic have been focused on in order to get some great content out to you all. That also means we inch closer to revealing a new part of Episode 1. Oh wait, that’s today! Let’s get into it.
What would a new update be without new weapons? These aren’t all of the new weapons you’ll be seeing in Episode 1, but they are pretty friggin’ awesome! They are themed around the first two maps, being more focused on a living forest.
Bonus, there’s one in 3D. You’ll have to wait for the episode to release in order to see the rest!
Maybe they have something to do with our next hero? Nah, probably not. They’re just cool runic weapons from the woods, don’t need to think about it past that at all.
As previously mentioned, we’re focusing on remaking some of our previous maps with some changes to gameplay, while bringing in a brand new map as the boss map of the episode. The Outpost is following that formula. The Outpost is a remake of the Drakenfrost Resort map from Dungeon Defenders II, a map that not many people have had the opportunity to explore and defend. It hangs on a cliff, overlooking where you’ve previously come from, and acted as a barracks of sorts to keep soldiers of Etheria stationed outside of town, with a giant belltower to warn of incoming threats.
One of the things we wanted to do with these maps in this act is have a seasonal shift as you play through them. You’ll notice a dramatic shift and change in the season and tone as you progress onwards and fight the enemies that await.
These maps are some of our favorites visually, and there’s still some you haven’t seen. There’s so much you haven’t seen yet… Maybe we’ll shake that up next week a bit. Maybe. Probably. Just look out early next week for some B E A N S. That’s the “What’s Next Section”. Watch, we’ll put all of that there.

Just look out early next week for some B E A N S. See, we did it. This is a callback to the previous paragraph. Something about these forests is driving us a little crazy.
