Ehhh...

It won't add more acts, will it?

I like long games, but 10 acts was already pushing it. :p

Let's hope for a mechanic that's actually fun. Playing the current Turmoil is so much more fun than playing Harbringer.

All news press released thus far. Expect more to come later today. Edit: I highly recommend the MMORPG and IGN ones, they go into more detail and explain things a lot better. Pretty excited for this expansion.

Haha yup. After how successful FoO was in bringing new players + Xbox One launch, this is the very first time in the game's history that they're doing back-to-back expansions. Typically there's just a plain Challenge League in between expansions.

Nope, won't add any new Acts. In fact, FoO decreased the amount of "Acts" from (4 Acts x 3 difficulties) to (10 Acts x 1 difficulty).

I hear ya. Abyss League sounds like a spin on the widely regarded best League of the game (Breach).

Nope, the game is free and all 7 expansions are free.

Picture of the new Atlas, color-coded and named. (Looks amazing, pretty sure cyan = new tilesets. Makes up all of the bottom-right)

Correct. The current 10-day event is called the Turmoil Race with wacky mods. There is also another 10-day event called Mayhem Race in about a week, also with wacky mods. These races are just to pass the time (but they have prizes) until Abyss League comes out (coinciding with the 3.1.0 expansion on the same day)
