Bandai Namco, one of the best known video game developers, has announced that their popular collectible card game Outcast Odyssey recently received an update inspired by Dark Souls II. In this newest update, Outcast Odyssey is paying tribute by including all-new gameplay, card content, and weekly featured events revolving around Dark Souls II. Because of this, Outcast Odyssey is borrowing themes and visuals from Dark Souls II with dark skies and a bonfire, as well as the Umbral Cabal event.
Apart from previously mentioned changes, there’s also all-new game elements to Outcast Odyssey including counter-attacks, wandering enemies, and even player invasions inspired by Dark Souls II. In these invasions gamers will encounter others throughout the Umbral Cabal dungeon and have to battle them in spontaneous combat. There’s also 17 new cards with custom artwork, each with four evolved forms. Lastly with new cards comes two new realms, Luminous and Umbral, two forces that are strongest when in opposition against each other, but are neutral against the other realms.
Featured events include:
- The Tower – One day each week, a Tower filled with enemies appears on the colony screen. Gamers will fight their way to the top to defeat enemies inspired by those from Dark Souls II, and win packs of valuable Dark Souls II cards.
- Umbral Cabal – During this event, players will explore an infinitely deep dungeon and collect event items while facing off against invading players and trying to collect the most event items to win Dark Souls II packs and cards.
- The Guild War – Gamers can square off against other players and guilds in a fierce battle for dominance. Individuals and guilds at the top of the leaderboards win Dark Souls II packs and cards.
- Free Daily Bonuses at Launch – From now until May 1st, Outcast Odyssey players can receive free daily Dark Souls II Starter Bundles that contain Umbral or Luminous cards. In all, gamers who play the game at the launch of the Dark Souls II invasion can receive a total of 12 free cards just for playing the game and logging in daily.
