Ring of Elysium Season 3 Complete Patch Notes (March 27 Update)
- The Adventurer Pass is a 10-week seasonal system, a way for players to earn exclusive in-game rewards by playing the game and ranking up their seasonal Adventurer Tiers. As players’ Adventure Tier increases, various epic rewards will be unlocked including:
E-points: Unlike the Adventurer Pass for the previous two seasons, the S3 Adventurer Pass rewards will include a total of 1500 E-points! Use 950 E-points to unlock the Adventurer Pass and earn 1500 E-points back when you hit tier 97!
- Adventurer Characters (does not affect game balance)
- There will be three Adventurer Characters in this season. All characters have a variety of unlockable styles, and will gradually unlock as the player’s Tier increases in the Adventurer Pass
- Saki (Base Character Preview)
- Elliot (Base Character Preview)
- Captain Fokke (Base Character Preview)
- Player portraits
- Glider(Europa) appearances
- BMX bike appearances
- Grappling hook appearances
- Lobby music
- Loading screens
- and more!
- The Adventurer Pass is separated into two parts:
- The first part being the Free Pass, all players can obtain rewards by increasing their Adventurer Tiers without any sort of payment
- The second part is the Adventurer Pass, which is available for 950 E-Points, a premium in-game currency obtained with real-world money via Steam payment (1000 E-Points is equivalent to $9.99 USD)
- Players will immediately get a handful of rewards upon purchasing the Adventurer Pass, including two base Adventurer Characters: Saki and Elliot! Players will also get access to exclusive Adventurer weekly challenges
- In addition, players don’t have to grab the Adventurer Pass right away for the fear of missing out; players can buy the Adventurer Pass at any time during the season and retroactively earn the premium rewards based on the season tier that they have already reached!
- As you play, players can level up their seasonal character levels by accumulating experience points in-game; each character level will reward a certain amount of Adventurer Badge(s). Completing daily and weekly challenges will also reward Adventurer Badges accordingly, 10 Adventurer Badges will increase players’ Adventurer Tier by one, unlocking a variety of rewards
- As always, none of the rewards in the Adventurer Pass affects game balance, and all unlocked rewards stay forever!
- Weekly Challenge Missions will provide a large quantity of Adventurer Badges and character experience points to help players increase their character levels and Adventurer Tiers. The Season 3 will provide 10 set of Weekly challenge missions, the first eight weeks’ challenge missions will provide a large quantity of Adventurer Badges. The last two weeks’ challenge missions will provide a large amount of character experience points. As the season progresses, one set of weekly challenge missions will be unlocked every week, and the already unlocked weekly missions can be completed at any time throughout the season

S3 Pirate Theme Events
Nostalgic return of the classic dropship mechanic
- The Pirate Dropship is a limited-time special event to help kick off the pirate themes that we have in Season 3. This deploy method also calls back to the original spawn method for Ring of Elysium, where players jumped out of a plane to their desired location.
Please note that the Pirate Dropship event is currently planned to run for one week, after the event ends, we will change the spawn system back to the original one.
The cursed pirate ship looming in the distance
- Besides the Dropship event, we have also added some other interesting content into Europa Island such as the mysterious pirate ship to spice things up a bit throughout the season.
- During every game round, after the dynamic weather goes into “Typhoon” mode, a cursed pirate ship will appear on the map. When players approach and presses F to board the pirate ship, they will be transformed into a pirate captain; the appearance will remain until the end of that game round. While the ship is moving, loot boxes (pirate barrels) will also be continuously thrown off the ship, you don’t want to miss that!
Pirate themed airdrops and elimination boxes
- During the event, the appearance of the airdrop will become pirate casks. The appearance of the elimination box will also become treasure chests.
- Increased the amount of HP from 10 to 30 when a player gets revived by teammates
- Added a UI indicator for the evacuation helicopter’s height drop
- Added a UI showing the number of healing items carried when spectating a player
- Optimized the visual effect of 4X, Red dot, and holographic sights, giving them a better visual performance under various environments and illumination
- Optimized the camera path when character vaults
- Added a new option- Display glow effects to opponents, allowing players to choose whether to display their character and weapon glow effects to opponents (this does not affect players themselves and their teammates)
- Optimized the character creation process and updated the appearance for default characters. The new default character resembles the “adventurer” identity better, with a free set of adventurous looking cosmetic items, including masks, pants, gloves, etc.
- After the update, both new and veteran players will automatically get the updated default character appearances
- Adjusted the entrance for face customization. Now, in the “Appearance” interface, click on the icon in the lower left corner to enter the default character’s face customization interface
- The price of confirming a face customization is 50 E-points. And there is no limit on the number of customization done
- With the launch of the new season, we will reset the leaderboards, player ratings, and all personal statistics. This will continue to happen at the start of every new season
- To celebrate the launch of Season 3, and to allow players to earn more exclusive rewards with friends, we have fully updated the rewards of the Battle Buddy invitation system
- After the end of Adventurer Season 2, we will reset all players’ Battle Buddy list and Battle Buddy relationships. Players are welcomed to continue recruiting new Battle Buddies in the Season 3 to join your adventures in Ring of Elysium!
- The daily check-in system continues! During March 30 – April 5 (Pacific Time). Players can earn a new Ice cream accessory for FREE after checking-in for 7 days!
