Following some expansive changes to Spiral Knights
, you may be wondering what the future holds ... well, here’s a sneak preview at what’s in the pipeline for the planet of Cradle!
One of the things you’ll be seeing more of: advanced missions that help deepen and expand the story of the Clockworks, building out content to go along with deepened game lore.
Here’s a peek at what’s currently in development!
Originally designed as one of the main hubs of activity for Spiral Knights, the Arcade has become somewhat redundant, replaced in large part by the Ready Room. Now something of a dumping ground only for excess minerals following the Battle Sprite update, the Arcade has become not unlike the arcades of the 1980s: tragically empty lacking in purose.
Over several patches, we hope to change all this! Here’s some of what you can look forward to:
- A sandbox-type experience: expect the unexpected! Or don’t, for obvious reasons.
- A place where players can farm materials and items in-between missions
- A feature that gives players some degree of control over the Arcade experience…
For now, you’ll have to make do with scant details … we are looking forward to filling you in with more info, though!
Rank Mission Campaign Updates
The Rank Mission campaign is going to be receiving an update that continues the story of the Artifact … and introduces a new primary antagonist for the Spiral Knights! The framework for this story will allow us to further expand Rank Missions post-Vanguard level.
New Tier 3 Boss
A new mission arc will be incorporated following the events of the Firestorm Citadel that will include a new boss monster for players to challenge!
Over the past few months we’ve built new features into Spiral Knights to expand the way you can play, particularly the Dash & Bash abilities and, of course, Battle Sprites. Now that your repertoire has been expanded, how about a new challenge
to fit your new skills?
In addition to the exciting features we have planned for the Arcade and Rank Missions, we're busy working on an all-new challenge mode
that will allow players to work as a team in cooperative scenarios and compete with other teams for a high score, along with rewards for those who truly excel.
This isn't all that we have in store for you, it's just all we can talk about right now. Many more exciting features are on the way! Keep an eye out here on the Spiral Knights forums for details on the above projects, and more.
So as always, thanks for playing Spiral Knights!
