Hello there Celeste players!
As we approach the Halloween Event, I thought you would like to have a preview of what is coming with the next patch. So let's get into it, shall we?
Since this is one of the biggest content updates we have had in Celeste, I will break it down into question-based sections:
Are we getting new Quests?For the Halloween Event, we are adding 3 new Minigames and 3 new Legendary Quests. Available for a limited time only, these quests offer a unique visual setting for players and new units to play with and against! Find them in the graphics below:
Just like last year, we have new, event-exclusive pieces of Gear! Obtainable via both PvP or PvE, these pieces of Gear are available for everyone to get! Check them out below:
Is there any new Gear? How do I get it?
As you can see, per popular demand, Zahhak's Sword of the Undying makes a return this year. But it will be only available for purchase from inside the Store at Haunted Isle, and cannot be crafted like the other 3 items.
We are happy to announce that due to popular demand, the Black Cat Vanity Set will be available for purchase once again! But we also have new decoration for you. Behold the new 24-slot warehouse, the Floating Scarehouse! (Don't forget that you can only have up to 5 warehouses in your capital city! So if you want to build one of these, you might need to pack up one of your existing warehouses.)
What about Vanity? Capital City Decorations?
These Items will be available for you to purchase in the new Store inside the event-exclusive new region, Haunted Isle:
Yes! in addition to all of the things mentioned above, we also have Advisor Reworks and Changes in store for you. More details will be revealed soon.
Anything else coming for PvE?
Also, whilst we are waiting for Bahram's Lottery to be fully ready, he has bought for himself a small stall in Tarsos and will soon sell materials available in other vendors to you, in bulk. By Hourmazd!
Alongside PvP Balance Patch #17 (PF2K's personal note: I'm very excited for this patch! I think it will bring a few very nice changes to PvP and make for fresh and exciting gameplay. Greek players unite!), there will be two entirely new Terrain Sets added to the game, which will be added to both Classic and Celeste PvP/Skirmish maps. They are the Celtic Autumn and Persian Valley Terrain Sets. In addition, there have been five new Gaia Animals added to the game: Black Wolf, Brown Wolf, Polar Bear, Red Deer and Brown Sheep. Check them out below!
What's coming to PvP?
As you know, Project Celeste is a fan project and everything done in it is volunteer work, done by our team in our spare time and there is only so much time we can invest before our real life obligations prevent us from making further progress. While we are still working on the Romans very frequently, with things such as the Events and other content being added, we currently do not expect the Civilization to be ready for release in 2019, considering our high quality standards and us wanting to make sure that the Romans get all the polishing and details that they deserve. But worry not, we will still be having regular updates and blogs about them as we go! Pompey and Caesar aren't done with you yet! Pompey, Caesar and... their friend, who hasn't made the scene yet but will be making an appearance soon enough. Can you guess who he is?
What's going on with the Romans? Where are the blogs?
We expect to launch the Halloween Event this weekend, so we will see you all then!
What do you think about the new content shown in this blog? Let us know in the comments below!
Thanks, and see you in the game!
