Beta 6.520 for Crowfall is now live. Dubbed Carnage, the update gives you access to another world, called the HungerDome which is the home of the Throne War arena. Here are the details.

If this HungerDome sounds familiar to you, it’s because we covered it previously. The team shared the player archetypes available for this arena, which you can catch up on here. In short, HungerDome will feature 12 teams of five players who compete for victory before the world is actually destroyed.

These battles will last for 30 minutes with a fairly typical “last man standing” set up. HungerDome will also include matchmaking for both formed teams and PUGs. Carnage will also include several new features into the mix and quality of life improvements.

This includes Crafting Factories which will let you produce weapons, armor, and tools. QoL improvements include a better player compass, new import rules for The Dregs campaign, a quick trade player-to-player system.

Also expect a significant pass on the strategy maps for The Dregs and The Infects, in addition to several power and balance updates. J. Todd Coleman, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Crowfall, provided additional details in the accompanying press release,

“The Carnage update is another significant step forward on our path to launch. Adding short-session team-elimination matches to our already strong lineup of time-limited and perpetual campaigns, Crowfall now covers the full spectrum of PvP engagements for players—from a few hours to a few months to many years.”
