Illuvium OpenBeta Testnet: What to Expect

What to Expect: Open Beta Testnet Launch


Open Beta Testnet is live! We wanted to share some updates and what you can expect for this update. Although significant changes are still coming to the Overworld, here are some updates from this release.

Fuel Contract Swap

New Fuel Contracts: We have swapped the fuel contracts on Sepolia. The amount of Fuel you’ve had before the swap has been airdropped to everyone to ensure a seamless transition.

Geofenced Locations

Travel Animation Issue: Due to geofencing, players in certain regions may experience being stuck in the travel animation. This issue has been present since the initial Private Beta 4 release, and we’re working with IMX to improve detection and in-game messaging.

Ongoing Balance

We are committed to tweaking and monitoring the game balance continuously, iterating multiple times throughout the testnet release. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us refine the game.

Private Beta 4 testers might also be able to test some new experimental features before we roll them out to the general public. So although you can delete the Illuvium (Testnet) build, keeping it may be a fun testing opportunity! More details to come.

Mac Users

Due to an update to Unreal 5.4, we are experiencing some issues with the Mac version that we are working to resolve:

- Login: You need to launch the game directly from the installation folder. To easily find the installation folder, open the Epic Games client, click on the three dots next to the Illuvium game, select Manage, then click on the folder icon and launch the Illuvium app.

- No Chat: Chat functionality is currently unavailable on Mac. We’re working to restore this as soon as possible.

Updates and Adjustments

Ergon Rift Values Adjusted: The new values are 300/200/175/150/125/25/25/25/25/25, totalling 1075 energy up from the previous 725.

Deconstruction Update: Deconstruction is no longer available. The current crafting requirements are materials (ingots, essences) and the previous Stage of the item. For example, to forge the Advanced Visor, you need the Basic Visor.

Reduced Crypton Cost for Travel: We've lowered the Crypton cost, making travel more affordable.

Adjusted Recipes for All Items: Recipes have been updated to match the new changes.

Added Missions: Expect many changes for this system, as this is only the beginning.

Deposits on Walls and Ceilings: Deposits can now spawn on walls and ceilings.

Increased Deposit Spawn Rate: The deposit spawn number has increased for all maps, with new deposit placements (you might want to look up).

Reduced Scan Cost: Scan cost has been reduced to 25 Ergon Energy.

Adjusted Scan: The scan now reveals everything.

Removed Some Drone Attachments: Some drone attachments have been removed, with new ones to be added in the future.

Many Bug Fixes: Numerous bugs have been fixed to improve gameplay.

Removed Opponent and Team Reveal: Ascendant has removed the opponent and team reveal features.

We know these changes are just the beginning, and more significant updates are coming.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication. We look forward to seeing you in the Overworld!

Stay sharp, and happy hunting!
