Friday Update – Winter is Here

Nov 17, 2017

Welcome to a round up of the week… and it’s a big one. Our 8th set releases today! Read on for details, patch notes, and release celebration specifics:

Dead of Winter

Dead of Winter will be live in client with a release celebration that starts today! Note that this celebration will run until the 27th, so you will have plenty of time to prepare for winter’s chill. You can read all about our patch schedule here for details on when servers will come back up today, or join us on the Release Stream for a live count down. For those of you who want to dive into the nitty-gritty, our patch notes for PC and PS4 are up for your review as well.

For everyone else, it has been one wild ride. Corey Burkhart gave us our first look at the exciting keywords coming with Dead of Winter. Then, he doubled down by introducing us to the all-new champions raring to inspire some frosty new brews. Finally, Burkhart even walked us through the design of a Dead of Winter card from ‘A’ to ‘Z.’ Exciting!

Throughout this journey, we were also introduced to the story behind our latest set:

Tournament Support

Please note: if you happen to have technical issues with the Clash or Bash events, our support team requests that you submit an output log from that same day along with your ticket. This is essential, not only to ensure your ticket gets resolved in a timely fashion, but also to help us prevent similar problems from occurring in the future. Output, error, and crash logs can be found in the HEX: Shards of Fate program install folder on your machine.

See you in the battlegrounds~
