Open Beta 70 – A New Frontier Patch Description.

In this patch, the Siege of Ascension Peak event will end, the VIP Shop and the Founder’s Pack will disappear. However, we will be able to buy new DLC sets, and we will also receive a new system – Battle Pass. Another community skin will also be released – Huntsman Androxus.

Welcome to OB70!

After millions of matches, Khan’s assault on Ascension Peak is coming to an end. So if you wanted to unlock Jenos’ Soul Eater skin, I hope you’re reading this before this update hit the servers!

Open Beta 70 – A New Frontier Patch Description

In this update we are releasing the first of three Battle Passes for 2018. The Battle Pass is packed with tons of skins and new content (like animated sprays!) for everyone – the more you play, the more you earn.

There have been a lot of balance changes over the past few patches, so we’re beefing them up a bit this time around to balance out this update as we watch the meta evolve. The last hero to enter the Realm, Khan, will receive some buffs to help him defend himself better in the heat of battle.
