After a week delay Atlas receives a new update on Wednesday that will start season 9 with a fresh start after the server wipe. The new patch includes the discovery of the Ruins of the Golden Age as well as seven new challenging bosses to overcome. There’s also a new region, potential new trials, and of course a bunch of fixes and changes based on feedback.
There are new locations including the Golden Age Ruins Islands and seven new mini-bosses, each pi-island has its own boss for you to find and fight. The Grapeshot Games team has also released a video preview showing these new bosses: Ancient Fire Elemental, Elder Rock Elemental, Kekada, Buwaya, Eber, Crystal Scorpion, and The Sentinel.
The ancient elementals use what is in their names as part of their challenge. Kekada is a giant crab that has been corrupted by the power stone on the island where you find it. Now this giant crab will crush anything it can if you don’t stop it. Buwa is a giant crocodile based on Filipino myths. If you are, legend has it that you will be transported to the world of spirits. Boar is the boar god, and in your case it looks like a giant wild boar that’s rotting and has you in its sights. Crystal Scorpion is attracted to dark energies and only appears in darkness.
Finally, the Sentinel is a Cyclops who protects crystal beings but has been influenced by corrupted crystals. Corruption comes in the form of corrupted crystals, and the Sentinel itself has also begun to see changes in its form from the corrupted crystals.
A new region surrounded by fog and darkness and the location of mysterious green fires will definitely be a welcoming land for you to explore. There are secrets in the Maw Waters and also some new items that you will want to get your hands on.
The update, which is set to go live this Wednesday, also includes a number of bug fixes and changes. You can read the full notes below Atlas.
