The latest update invites players to explore the new Forbidden Monuments biome, as well as the introduces the territorial Blue Tit bird.

Alongside the bird, players can discover a new armour set with unique abilities, grow their skills with the long-awaited player and creature levelling system, battle a stinky new insect enemy, arm themselves with the game’s first AOE grenade weapon, meet a new NPC as part of the ongoing narrative and much more.

The latest content update will add a player and creature levelling system, allowing players to exchange experience collected from battles, resource gathering and key story quests for improvements to key stats.

Players can improve their Smallfolk up to level 100 with increased Health, Speed, Damage and Stamina, while mounts and tamed creatures will earn experience while following their master and can level up 10 times.
