The showcase showcased a huge new caravan that shepherds players between several different areas of the Bastiri Desert region and different selected areas. But the showcase star Asylum 2 Road: Spear and crossbow.

Both weapon types have unique skills that are unique to that weapon type. For example, the spear shown in the showcase gave the player a swivel slash ability, causing a storm near the player. When you leave the storm, it explodes in an area. This is facilitated by the release skill, another unique ability of the spear. This allows the player to fly backwards and throw blades at the enemy. Crossbows are also unique and can be changed to different elementals or armor-piercing bolts depending on combat requirements. Wilson told the press that the studio wasn’t sure if older weapon types would see similar unique skills, if any.

Ultimatum provides the player with what it is essentially Want to be a Millionaire? —It’s a style game show, but with a little more death and blood. The player meets the Trial Master (the messenger of chaos) and instructs the Trial Master to take the trial.

The trial will display the reward to the player and ask them to select a difficulty modifier. If they succeed in the trial, the reward is what they take. However, the Trial Master will also offer a second, potentially better, loot if the player decides to continue. If the player decides to push it, the second trial will be even harder than the first trial, and so will the third, fourth and so on.

Players can leave with a reward between these levels, but at some point they lose everything if they die. Players can use items found around the world to trigger these events or sacrifice items to encourage even more powerful drops from the next trial. Trials can also give players unique rewards with interesting effects.

The ultimatum trial also works in multiplayer. This is a nice touch. Players can run trials together, one can drop out with a reward and the other can boost luck. For tiebreakers, the game rolls the dice and players can even vote for their preferred difficulty modifier.

Ultimatum also includes improvements in normal quality of life and additions to the game. In this league, Grinding Gear Games has focused on dropping loot and changed what can and cannot be dropped from enemies. Final Act Bosses are now more profitable to spread the word about how players spend their time farming items. League-specific items (meaning players need to perform certain content to get a chance) are now also visible in the general item pool.
