New season Helheim announced
05/24/2022 - The new season of Booming Tech's tactical medieval action MMO Conqueror's Blade was announced today and will be released as a free update on June 9. Conqueror's Blade: Helheim opens the new seasonal campaign inspired by seafaring Viking raiders, featuring two unit types, revamped maps and other unique content.
Seasonal Campaign: The Northmen seek to restore their empire on new and distant shores - follow the call to battle in the starting region of the Borderlands or Ungverija and play each week to see how the story unfolds. Players will initially have access to 3-star units in siege, field, and territorial wars, and their power will grow as the season progresses. The bravest generals can fight with their house in the twice-weekly territorial wars, completing stages and preparing for the final showdown in Reginopolis at the end of the season.
New Units: With two new units inspired by fearsome historical Viking warriors, battles with enemies become even more compelling, including the most brutal warriors the Northlands have to offer:
- Huskarle (4-Star) - Available June 9: Huskarle are bodyguards of noble lineage and can inspire allies as they charge furiously into battle.
- Varangian Guard (5-Star) - Available later in the season: Elite warriors who have found their calling on distant shores. These brutal, rage-driven mercenaries can switch between swords and shields or axes to cut down enemies in a furious storm.
Fighting on Revamped Maps. With the launch of Helheim, players can enjoy a new experience on revamped versions of fan-favorite maps, including the beleaguered Broch Eastray, La Grande Gloire and the ancestral home of the Northmen, Healing Fjord. Broch Eastray will be available starting June 9, and raiders will begin appearing on new maps later in the season.
Battle Pass: Anyone looking to get the most out of the new season can pre-order a BattlePass or try a similar option in-game. The Battle Pass will be accompanied by a number of bonus items, including new and exclusive cosmetic items, emotes, currency and more.
Anniversary Events: In addition, Conqueror's Blade will launch a unique event in honor of the game's 3rd anniversary. From May 26 to June 16, players will be able to immerse themselves in a series of special events, such as the Sea Monster Beach Party, the PvP/PvE Event: The Reginopolis Rumble, and more.
