Players can progress through the fields to conquer the lands, acquire noble titles, and obtain various rewards; either solo (to be paired up with random squad members) or with a team of 4 other selected friends/guildmates. There is also an option for players to join a team as a spectator where they are not required to do anything, but only earn 80% of the rewards as a result. Each team can have up to 10 spectators.
There are a variety of mini-bosses to fight which will grant the player with loot, hero runes, and hunters marks. All of the aforementioned will aid the hero in their progression, ultimately accumulating in a final fight against the main boss of the season.
This is a history lesson of the darkest variety, and has been selectively forgotten; a bloody farce that should not be looked back on.
Long ago, the god of Hunting Adrax used heaven and earth as his hunting grounds and all living beings were his prey. He got bored eventually and launched an unprecedented hunting campaign. After his disappearance, the gods sealed the hunting grounds and never spoke of it again. Now the resounding roars of beasts in the hunting grounds can once again be heard...
Heroes answered the call of the gods, and formed a hunting squad to go deep into the hunting grounds, where prehistoric behemoths lurk in every crevasse and the search for the truth begins anew.
Prey trapped on the hunting grounds have become frenzied and rabid, voluntarily turning into minions of the beasts that used to hunt them. Now they are the hunters, and our Heroes are the prey.
Adrax, the god of the hunt, is both the guardian of hunters and the guardian of prey. In his care, the boundary between hunter and prey has been blurred, and chaos grips the land again as a new crazed campaign sets the stage.
Will you adhere to the old teachings, defeat the minions, hunt the beasts, and destroy the origins? Or do you give in to your desires and indulge in this carnival of blood?
In the dead of winter, snowstorms blanket the continent, changing the landscape, blurring roads. It's becoming increasingly difficult to see if we're on the right track.
People have been vanishing all over the place. According to eyewitnesses, missing people were making a long voyage across the continent, only for several of them to disappear. When the snow cleared, they were gone without a trace. The footprints continued for a short distance before being completely covered up by thick snow.
The ever-increasing number of missing people slowly started to gain the attention of the powers that be. They later realized that there was something unusual occurring to the wind, some strange force had taken control of it, a force that had seemingly originated from the sealed-off Hunting Fields.
The gods soon turned their gaze to the Hunting Fields, and unsurprisingly enough they found the seals within the Hunting Fields had been loosened, allowing the power held within the seals to seep into the snow and wind, inevitably covering the whole continent. It was determined that those missing people had been drawn closer to the Hunting Fields by this unusual force.
The gods have summoned the warriors of Esperia to once again enter the Hunting Fields to do battle with the God of Hunting.
This time, however, there is a strange twist to the plot, as the hunting parties are met with a far more insidious hunting field. Cold and hunger gradually chip away at the will of the warriors. This time the snow slows their pace of progress, and in front of them, their prey that had been laying dormant for so long is already baring its fangs...
You need not fight alone in this frigid hell.
Players can choose lone wolf to embark on the hunt with 4 randomly selected squad mates, or players can choose team up to join with 4 friends and/or guildmates to form a group of 5. Each squad consists of one captain and 4 squad mates and each member will represent a different faction.
Select your faction wisely, as you cannot change it later. Your choice will play a big role in the hunt. All five factions will share responsibility. Each member of the team, whether choosing the lone wolf or team up option, will choose a different faction to represent (either Lightbearer, Wilder, Graveborn, Mauler, or a combination of Celestial, Hypogean, and Dimensional.) Only heroes from the faction the player chose during the matching process can be used once the challenge has commenced, with the player being allowed to use 10 of their own heroes that match their selected faction.
