Updated: Mar 18

Hello Wizards, Mages and all magical beings of Ignus.

The next epic chapter in Citadel’s history has made its debut to the core game on PS4 and Xbox One! New mysteries will be revealed in every corner of the land, and perhaps you may find yourself in a completely new realm unlike you’ve ever seen. That’s not all, we’ve also included the Barklock Rewards and quality of life updates.

Brand New World

Reports have been discovered, various individuals with the utmost highest intellect have been studying these mysteries surrounding the Cultists and their summoning mechanics. They have uncovered a new method to access these unknown realms; err on the side of caution, as a great concentration of unimaginable evil awaits on the other end. Only the mightiest magic users will be powerful enough to defeat the evil therein. You can find the teleporter in HealthClyffe.
