Swamp Giants only make okay friends (smelled a swamp recently?), but as allies against the Sorcerer King they’re way more effective now that you get a new awesome hero for befriending them. The Beta 5 update is available today, and adds Remnant Champions alongside new Remnant Faction quests, an overhaul to the quest system, and more.
Remnant Champions are the finest fighters remaining to the shattered empires crushed by the Sorcerer King's terrible conquest. Their loyalty can be yours, but at a price: you'll have to help their people by completing unique quests before the Remnant Factions and their Champions will throw in with you for one final gasp of defiance against the evil Sorcerer King's dark reign. Korthox the Ice Lord, Esperaza the Avenger, and more will prove capable allies if you can earn their trust through battle and sacrifice.
Among (many) other things, Beta 5 includes:
Remnant Champions – Earn the loyalty of these powerful, unique heroes by completing their faction’s hand-crafted questline
Quest system overhaul – More, better rewards and additional multi-step quests added
End-game stats – Get more detail on what went right, and what went horribly wrong
- Balance, polish, bug fixes – Overall experience is hugely improved with latest patch
