Right now you can jump into gameplay with a completely fresh set of game servers . As well as a bunch of cool game changes, so check out the patch notes. Some big news since Season 2 release. But Season #3 ends on may 17th.

The Exiled patch notes:

Unlimited Free Trial during Season #3: In order to make it easier for new players to get into The Exiled we have decided to get rid of the 7-day trial period during Season #3. Yes, that means that you and all of your friends can play The Exiled for free for the coming four weeks. Just start the game and you’re in. You can (and should) still buy a Supporter Pack to unlock more character slots. And get unique visuals for your character but it is not a requirement anymore to play the game.

Open Clans: We have changed the clan system to allow for three new recruiting states. “Accepting Applications” is the default and it works as before. So applicants can message clan leaders and recruiters in order to create a clan invite. “Not recruiting” means just that – there will be no way to get in touch with the clan. And “Open” means that everybody will be able to join your clan at the click of a button without needing an invite. We also added a window notifying new players of the most active clans they could join.

Balancing Changes

  • Player names in the Help chat channel are now colored again and not just pure white.

Map Changes

  • Added a Rare Mob that drops Healer ability sigils.

Visual and Audio Changes
