PROGRESSION UPDATE

Following on from the introduction of Hunter Progression in our last update, we have made a series of changes and improvements to the progression system.

We have extended progression for each character, with the upper limit now being level 25. Some of the rewards from Fame levels 1-15 have changed from currency based rewards to cosmetics/modules. Players who have already earned Hunter Fame levels will have the new rewards unlocked and can claim them from the rewards screen.

In addition to Hunter progression, player progression has now also been added with its own levels and rewards. Hunter tokens achieved in-game can now also be spent on unlocking new Hunters.

Now is the time to master the Arena like never before!

Correction To Update: The ability to change your name was erroneously included in our initial update blog. This is something we are working on but is not within update 0.12.1. In addition, we have updated our description around the new challenges to make this clearer for players (now referred to above as "New Events"). We are sorry for this error.
