Abalon gets a new game update with Horde Survival mode for Linux, Steam Deck, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the hard work of D20Studios, amazing things happened. Available now on Steam, along with 90% Very Positive reviews.

If you’ve been diving deep into the world of Abalon, you’ve probably heard whispers of a much anticipated update. Here are all the details for Linux and Steam Deck players.

Survival Challenge

Many of you have been curious about a non-stop challenge, and it’s finally here. Just a heads up: it’s not a walk in the park. This challenge is like that insanely difficult level in your favorite platformer, only ten times harder. But as with all tough levels, the fun is in mastering it. And with a few tries, you’re due to find the best strategies and defenses. The trick is to keep experimenting until you find what works.

The world of Abalon is about to get scarier. Think of classic Halloween tales: dark, withered creatures, and scary vampires. Your mission? Defend against them. Similar to putting together a dream team for that perfect football match, only with heroes and magic spells.

Each round of this challenge, named “Horde Survival”, takes around 45 minutes. However, before you dive into Abalon, you can either select a pre-made team or, if you’re feeling adventurous, craft your own.

During the challenge, you won’t find shops or camps. Instead, you’ll get a small starter pack with health boosters and some traps. While you fight, you might find extra cards dropped by the creatures of Abalon, but they’re limited. Think of them like your special power-ups in a platformer.

You’ll notice enemies always appear from the opposite side of your Summoner, and while they come in waves, any boosts or reductions in strength won’t carry on from one wave to another. So for those who are extra brave, once you finish the initial eight waves, there’s an “Endless” mode with even scarier opponents. Each level is hand-designed to ensure fairness and a consistent challenge.

Some of the key additions to look out for:

New defense items like walls and explosives. It’s a bit like setting up barriers in a tower defense setting.
Every piece in Horde Survival has been carefully designed. Due to being like a handcrafted board in a tabletop session.

Special Stream Event

Oh, Kormakrtv, a popular online streamer, is going to showcase this Abalon challenge on October 18th from 10am CEST to 4pm CEST. If you’re curious to see it in action before you try it, check it out on Twitch.

Other Key Updates

In other news, there have been some tweaks:

  • The notoriously tough boss, Nithsrot Gerr, will now only show up in chapter 3. Think of it as a big boss at the end of a specific dungeon level.
  • A few technical glitches have been fixed, so Abalon should run smoother.
  • Enemies now have better AI, making them smarter opponents.
  • Some exciting new cards have been introduced which can help you during battles. Picture them as special power moves or tricks you can pull off.
