Here's What's New in Overworld
Private Beta 2 introduces two new regions, the Abyssal Basin and the Brightland Steppes, each with a distinct ambience and landscape. New Illuvials are also set to join the fight in Arena and Overworld experiences. Our interactive plant feature allows you to see flora reacting to environmental elements, and a few new movement mechanics have been added to the player's baseline suit. Moreover, server integration now stores most game information, making reconnection easier.
More details to come on Launch Day Blog!
Discover the Regions
Brightland Steppes: A vast grassland populated by large roots and giant rock spires and human size bubbles that help you traverse the towering landscape.
Abyssal Basin: Navigate through a challenging swamp terrain dominated by Titanicus Mushrooms, where Water, Nature, and Earth elements reign supreme.

Welcome to the Arena
Our Arena update introduces 28 new Illuvials from 10 unique lines. Expect significant changes to every Illuvial, a rework to Synergies, and an improvement to the UX and Hyper. The Survival Algorithm has been refined to more accurately account for changes in team composition arising from adjustments to Illuvial and Synergy.
Illuvial Base Rework
We've overhauled all Illuvials, pushing each into more distinctive archetypes, allowing them incredible strengths and weaknesses. Empaths and Psions are less tanky but pack more power into their Omegas, making them more susceptible to Rogues and flanking behaviours. Conversely, Fighters and Bulwarks gain more stats but have their Omegas weakened.
To make Synergies easier to understand and more powerful, we've simplified them. Now, playing a unit with a Synergy only increases the specific Synergy that they are. This allows for a more excellent range of Synergies within a Team, making team compositions more flexible and diverse.
We are eager to bring these updates to life and await your feedback. Stay tuned for follow-up blogs where we'll delve deeper into the specifics of the changes brought in Private Beta 2.
Embark on this exciting journey with us as we venture into new territories in the Illuvium universe!
