[Game website] Obsidian Entertainment and My.com are excited to announce the Skyforge “Crucible of the Gods”, the first major game update, will arrive to Aelion on 11 August. This massive update includes bug fixes, new content and feature enhancements as well as the ability to unlock the divine form granting players access to high-end activities including Invasions, Raids, and much more.
Certain heroic deeds are beyond the abilities of both mortals and immortals alike. For these activities, you will need to ascend to your rightful place as a God and progress through the newly unlocked Divine Atlas. Players will need to complete the “New God” Storyline quest which becomes available at ~30,500 Prestige to unlock access to the Divine Form.

Using their special dedicated analyzer, Pantheons can mark spatial distortions on the tactical globe of the divine observatory, allowing a group of ten players from their Pantheon to instantly teleport to the enemy’s lair. They will be faced with four powerful opponents, one after another, in an ancient arena. As a reward for their triumphant victory, these groups receive unique Epic weapons, other valuable trophies, and also advance towards the next stages of their character’s divine form.

While Pantheons seek out hidden hostiles in Distortions, the enemies of Aelion prepare their own invasions! Every able-bodied defender will now be involved in keeping the ruthless Invaders at bay as invasions are large scale events that affect all players. Successfully battling through each stage of the invasions will allow significant progress to be made through the Divine Atlas due to rewards and bonuses which are not counted towards the weekly limits.

Anomalies are activities for five players and take place in a large open area that can be accessed by several groups at the same time.
