Spellbreak’s first seasonal update will add team deathmatch

Spellbreak, the increasingly popular wizard-based battle royale, is gearing up for its first seasonal content update. Prologue: The Gathering Storm launches October 22, and it’s going to add a whole new multiplayer mode to the game: team deathmatch.

Spellbreak’s version of team deathmatch is the new 9v9 Clash mode, with the two teams composed of three squads of three. Developer Proletariat says it’s a “new way to experience Spellbreak” and it may well serve as an easier way to hop in and experiment with the unique combat system and find the best Spellbreak gauntlet for your playstyle.

The Gathering Storm update is also adding three new talents. There’s Vigor, which provides bonus health; Ambidextrous, which enables the passive class ability in your offhand gauntlet; and Foresight, which marks nearby players on your minimap and shows you future shrines and circles. We’ll also be seeing new outfits, artifacts, and other cosmetics, many of which are themed for the Halloween season. If your anime wizard could use a bit of goth energy, you’ll be in good shape when this update arrives.

The Gathering Storm update is, like Spellbreak itself, free. It’ll be introducing new weekly quests to complete for unique in-game rewards, too, so there’s more reason than ever to jump in and start hurling fireballs around.
