Exploring The Ultra Deep
The Ultra Deep is situated beneath Burkhalter’s Academy in Solarwood. Previously controlled, it became a hub for rogue scientific activities. An unexplained explosion recently took place there, prompting an exploration.
Players will collaborate, facing various challenges in The Ultra Deep. Different equipment is available at the start for varied gameplay. This playtest aims for a linear experience in contrast to previous ones. Regional leaderboards will rank teams based on their performance.
Regional Servers Introduction
Feedback from previous tests highlighted issues with latency and timezones. Ember Sword will use regional servers to provide an optimized user experience across different areas.
