There’s a new town takeover, in Kings Canyon, in the form of the decayed Project: Wraith facility. The research site is full of hidden bits of lore and includes a functional prototype portal that you can use to get to the base or to escape and reinitiate skydive.
We’re also getting a limited-time game mode called Armed and Dangerous, which limits weapons to snipers and shotguns while reducing the availability of loot. Speaking of loot, there’s a bunch of event loot to be earned by competing a number of challenges, including exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content. There will also be themed cosmetics for direct purchase and six new legendary items to craft or find in packs. Event-limited items will be available to purchase on a rotating schedule.
As a bonus, from 19:00 SAST on the 6th to 19:00 SAST on the 9th players will earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins.
The Voidwalker event runs from 3 to 17 September.
To set the mood, check out some of Wraith’s backstory in this rather excellent animated short; the second installment in the Stories from the Outlands series:
