PRIME INCURSIONS UPDATE - NOW LIVE!

DEFENDERS!

Today we released the PRIME INCURSIONS update on all platforms! We wanted to provide a challenge to our tested Defenders that was separate from Onslaught, and Prime Incursions are just that. There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s get into it!

PRIME INCURSIONS

What are they?

They are the highest and newest tier of incursions, selectable from the Incursions tab on the War Table. There are six different groups of incursions to play through that are releasing over time. You are able to play them as they are unleashed, the only thing that can hold you back is your own skill!

What are the rewards?

Prime Incursions have three different rewards associated with them.

Chaos VIII Ampoules
Each Prime Incursion has the chance to drop a Chaos VIII Ampoule. As you continuously progress, the Incursions get more and more difficult. As such, we wanted to increase the drop rate of Chaos VIII Ampoules to match that increase in difficulty. These Incursions can get pretty tough, which led us to making the hardest of these challenges have the highest drop chance for Chaos VIII Ampoules.

Chaos VIII Weapons
We’ve added a whole new slew of weapons with new weapon models that are only available through Prime Incursions. There’s over 25 new weapons to collect, sure to scratch that collector’s itch!

That’s not all there is to these weapons. Each weapon is upgraded to Chaos VIII, at the full 5/5 upgrade quality! That means they are perfectly upgraded, letting you focus on using Chaos VIII Amps to upgrade your relics and armor instead. Alongside these upgrades, we’ve curated these weapons to be what you really want. They have some of the most alluring shot and swing types many of you enjoy. ALONGSIDE THAT, included are curated mods specific to these weapons that really ensure these drops feel good and pack a punch!

Hyper Shards
Hyper Shards are something every player wants to boost up their arsenal. Previously, they were only acquired through Mastery completion, requiring a specific amount of Mastery Stars. Now, in Prime Incursions, you earn a Hyper Shard for every group you complete. There are six groups total, so if you complete all six of the groupings, you earn the seventh Hyper Shard as a capstone reward! This means you can now have up to TWO of each Hyper Shard in your ranks, pushing back the Old Ones forces more hyper-er than before.
When Do They Release?

incursions-3.png

Today we released the first two groups of Prime Incursions, Prime I and Prime II. Each of these groups contains 3 incursions, for a total of 6 to conquer. Every week, on Wednesday @ 9AM ET, we are releasing a new incursion. This is going until early November, giving you content to come back each week to enjoy. Here’s the schedule

Wonder why you give initiate costume but not others. 

Because she was very lacking in the costume department.

 

Also, really enjoying these incursions and can't wait to collect all the weapons.

whats the point of having chVIII weapons but you are still reset... and when you do they will back to ch0... all this new update is doing nothing to the players like me who is climbing floors to reset :(

+ i cant wait because they will go after 1 week i guess... that's annoying :/ i have to play them and lose my ch8 gear that i will earn form the maps after my reset :(

so for players like me(going to resets) either you never reset again !!!

OR

you earn the ch8 weapons and reset and lose them back to c0 and u can upgrade them to ch7 only later....

Devs didn't think about that... its really a big decision i have to take between this 2 options. at less there is an update... thanks :/

Actually it doesn't state they rotate anywhere, they will unlock over time, meaning Prime I and II this week, and just +1 every other week.

Meaning that in 11 weeks we'll have access to all of them.

I love the game, but I see no point to restart everytime and start to scratch again, it requires a lot of money to return where you were. Adding to this, now we have the option to include VIII amps to our gear for a lot of money, then with the restart you loose it all again for only 5% of exp and gold increase. 

I have restarted 14 times, but I starting to see no point to continue since everytime its getting harder and harder to continue and start from zero. Where is the fun there?

adding to this... weapons doesnt add any improvement to the game since this is a tower based game, I have never used a weapon which helps me to feel stronger if my towers arent.

Cool update! The update banner/ wallpaper and Prime Icon sold me, they look really amazing!!!

Glad that incursion is returning to relevance. And the weapons looked pretty dope! Looking forward to experiencing more stuffs in the subsequent weeks!

Will post my full feedback on this soon.

So i wanted to thank you for the quick and timely response, but I must admit these new incursion are extremely difficult, even though I'm a  year long vet.  badge 11 and floor 160.  Chrome enemies just walk through my strongest defenses  like they're not there. I'm afraid of future releases if these are this hard.

When will there be an update, that adds a vault for shards? Similar to the material vault. Because I have hundreds of shards and no room for my items, and I can’t gild them all due to the slow gold farming XD 

i am really I would be willing to pay 20-40$ for a shard vault ; )

Wow sounds nice. I tested today after 3 months of break. 

4th round Bling King. There occurred cobolds after wave was finished. 4hits. Crystal down. Restart. Game freezes in round 5.

Yeah!

Chromatic Games are conspiring against you!

No but seriously, was Zero Entropy being left out of the shop an oversight @LAWLTA

over all as a mid to late game player 3k plus ascension . I think this update is kind of awkward.

these maps thus far are just afk farm . but they don't drop high rates of relics and have such small chance for weapons you may not even use. in addition yay you give us extra shards we already have. no one in this game is gonna run 2 destructive pylons .2 shielding guards . like sure automation and mass destruction is awesome to have 2 of . but over all waiting weeks in between this update in addition to not having a more late game mode then onslaught with the current incursions has felt like a let down ! will update further in the weeks to come with new content
