We've just released the final segment of Act 3 with Build 26. You may now venture beyond Homestead's north gate into the heart of the Cult of Ch'thon's territory. Fight through the Blood Grove, experience the horror of the Ashen Waste and climb your way up through Darkvale to one of the Cult's largest strongholds. Along the way, you may forge an alliance and make a foe between the Order of Death's Vigil and Kymon's Chosen. For the intrepid and observant explorer, many secrets lie hidden along the way.
Also with this build, the level cap has been raised to 50, granting access to over 70 new epic items. It includes numerous fixes, tweaks to classes and other balancing adjustments, as well as some minor updates to existing art and areas. For a complete list of the multitude of additions and improvements, check out the changelog on the forum and feel free to give us your feedback!
With Act 3 completed, we march to the final segment of the game and our targeted full release, late this year. Coming up in the next few months we will release a yet unannounced 6th class, the new skill devotion system, legendary items and Act 4, in which you will face the final confrontation with the Aetherials and Chthonians. Thanks for sticking with us on this long journey!
If you missed it, we also announced recently that thanks to Steam revenue, we've been able to expand our design team with the addition of Diablo 1 & 2 designer Eric Sexton.
As a reminder, all backers have access to the game now (and have for some time). If you still haven't played and want to know how to claim your Steam key, read about here. (the key you receive via email is for installation of the final game without Steam, to play on Steam, you need to follow the forum instructions to claim your key).
And now back to the development mines with me!
