A new area has been added to the spawn, The Pit.
The Pit will be split into two sections: the surface level and the depths.
The surface level will offer only PvE threats, including ordinary mobs and easy to medium difficulty bosses.
The depths offer a more hardcore experience; PvP and PvE, with the most difficult bosses.
These bosses will drop a range of rewards, from points, to money, to a new currency, "Boss Souls", which can be traded in for keys, including the old keys no longer available on the shop, as well as other exclusive items.
To access it, The Pit must be open, and can be opened for anywhere from 1 to 48 hours at a time by purchasing an access pass on the store. This pass opens the pit to everyone.
More information will be released about The Pit as we approach the launch, which should be within the next couple weeks.
