Siltbreaker – Act II

  • Siltbreaker: Act II – Exclusive Battle Pass Campaign | link

Siltbreaker changelog

  • Introducing Adventure Mode, available for Act I and Act II where players can start the game and get more lives, and enemies with less health points and less damage. Rewards, achievements, and artifacts cannot be obtained here. Adventure Mode is for those of you who want to play without getting too much pressure.
  • 9 new heroes were added to the hero pool.
  • Abaddon has been removed from the hero pool.
  • Significantly increases the drop rate of many artifacts.
  • Dropping the in-game artifact now ensures that all players will receive the artifact in this session and that the artifact is not a duplicate of the previous artifact.
  • Introducing a new “currency”, Artifact Coins. Which will be consumed later to activate the Artifact you have. Artifact Coins can be obtained by clearing the zone and are also found as drops from enemies. Later, Artifacts found during the game do not require Artifact Coins to activate them.


No further details are given, so that you find out for yourself when playing later.
