Adventurer Season 5

     The Adventurer Pass spans over the 10-week season and is a way for players to earn exclusive in-game rewards. By playing the game and ranking up the seasonal Adventurer Tiers, players will unlock various epic rewards including:

     E-points: The S5 Adventurer Pass rewards includes a total of 1500 E-points! Players can spend 950 E-points to unlock the Adventurer Pass and earn 1500 E-points back when they hit tier 97!

     Adventurer Characters (does not affect game balance)

     There will be three Adventurer Characters in this season. All characters have a variety of unlockable styles, and will gradually unlock as the player's Tier increases their Adventurer Pass

     Edmund (Base Character Preview)


     Friday (Base Character Preview)


     Alice (preview to be revealed)

     Player portraits

     Glider(Europa) appearances

     BMX bike appearances

     Grappling hook appearances

     Lobby music

     Loading screens

     and more!

     The Adventurer Pass is separated into two parts:

     The Free Pass - all players can obtain rewards by increasing their Adventurer Tiers without any sort of payment

     The Adventurer Pass, which is available for 950 E-Points. E-Points are a premium in-game currency obtained with real-world money via Steam payment (1000 E-Points is equivalent to $9.99 USD)

     Players will immediately get a handful of rewards upon purchasing the Adventurer Pass, including two base Adventurer Characters: Edmund and Friday! Players will also get access to exclusive Adventurer weekly challenges

     Players can buy the Adventurer Pass at any time during the season and retroactively earn the premium rewards based on the season tier that they have already reached!

     Players can level up their seasonal character levels by accumulating experience points in-game; each character level will reward a certain amount of Adventurer Badge(s). Completing daily and weekly challenges will also reward Adventurer Badges accordingly, 10 Adventurer Badges will increase players’ Adventurer Tier by one, unlocking a variety of rewards

     As always, none of the rewards in the Adventurer Pass affects game balance, and all unlocked rewards stay forever!

     Weekly Challenge Missions will provide a large amount of Adventurer Badges and character experience points to help players increase their character levels and Adventurer Tiers. Season 5 will provide 10 sets of Weekly challenge missions. The first eight weeks' challenge missions will provide a large quantity of Adventurer Badges and the final two weeks' challenge missions will provide a large amount of character experience points. As the season progresses, one set of weekly challenge missions will be unlocked every week, and the already unlocked missions can be completed at any time throughout the season



     How it works

     New item- Vehicle Modification Kit

     Found as a consumable loot item scattered across the map, one vehicle modification kit is guaranteed to be found in each airdrop

     Players can use one Vehicle Modification Kit when they’re next to an upgradeable vehicle and press “G” to start upgrading the vehicle to a Battlecar

     Vehicle Modification Kits can also be used to repair Battlecars (restores HP and damaged components) by standing next to the Battlecar and pressing “G”

     Battlecar components can break off after taking a certain amount of damage and lose the Battlecar ability, repairing Battlecars will restore the components to its original state

     There are currently a total of 6 upgradeable vehicles in game, each with a unique Battlecar device (ability)

     Armored Truck- Machinegun Turret (new vehicle)

     Firing keybind- LMB

     The machinegun turret has no ammunition restrictions. However, firing will increase the heat meter. At full heat, the turret overheats and becomes unable to fire until it completely cools down

     Players can hold the RMB to enter the "aiming" state, which increases firing accuracy


     All-terrain Vehicle- Rocket Booster (new vehicle)

     Boost activation keybind- Shift

     The rocket boost works similarly to the underwater DPV’s boost. The Battlecar will quickly accelerate while boosting, the energy reserve will be consumed, and will then slowly recover over time while not boosting


     SUV- Pulverizer

     Device automatically runs, no keybind needed

     The pulverizer will deal a great amount of damage continuously in front of the vehicle, damaging anything in range. However, it will not directly damage Adventurers inside of vehicles, and will damage the vehicle first


     Mini SUV- Recon Radar

     Activation keybind- Shift

     During radar activation, enemy characters, enemy-occupied vehicles, and unoccupied vehicles within the radius will be marked on the map. They will be marked as a periodic display, each display lasts for a short period of time

     If players are detected, a full-screen effect and UI prompts will be played to remind the players that they have been detected by the recon radar


     Pickup Truck- Explosive Barrel Launcher

     Barrel Launch keybind- LMB

     Device has no ammunition restrictions. However, every launch will increase the heat meter. At full heat, the device overheats and becomes unable to launch again until it completely cools down

     Barrels explode immediately upon contact with vehicles. Barrels will not explode immediately upon contact with objects and players

     Barrel explosions can be triggered by gunfire, grenades, RPG-7, other barrel explosions/contacts, etc.


     Mini-compact car- Cloaking Device

     Activation keybind- Shift

     When cloaking, the car will become more transparent, but sounds and special effects will still play normally

     Players can deactivate by pressing shift again to enter the device cooldown early

     Cloaking will be interrupted by the following actions:

     Shooting, ADSing, getting in and out of the car

     Driver switches seats

     Taking any type of damage


     Battlecars- friendly fire damage

     The following damage types cannot cause friendly fire damage to teammates and players themselves:

     Weapon damage



     Explosive barrels



New landmarks on Europa Island

     The secret construction of Europa Spaceport is now complete, replacing the Windsor Village


     The Hospital at the west side of Fisherman Town is now fully operational and open for visits by Adventurers in need


     It seems like a mysterious person arrived in Artaud City, and has built a new magnificent manor, he must be very well-off financially!


     A new bar has opened in Artaud City as well. Feel free to stop by and take a load off in between eliminating one another




     Players can now finish challenges in Training Mode, including Daily Tasks, Adventurer Pass Weekly Challenges, Pinnacle Challenges, Battle Buddy Missions, Seasonal Quests, and Heroic Challenges

     As a legendary pirate aspiring for new adventures, Captain Fokke has left Europa Island with his Pirate Ship and Underwater Treasures

     Updated the airdrop’s appearance to a giant Battlecar tire to fit the theme of Season 5

     Removed collision models for certain narrow trees


New weapon- the RPG-7

     The RPG-7 can be found in Normal mode and Training mode (it cannot be found in Ashen Eye), and each airdrop is guaranteed to contain the RPG-7 and ammunitions

     The RPG-7 fires dedicated RPG ammunition, each reload can only load one rocket

     The rocket will immediately explode upon contact and deal a certain amount of AOE damage, the damage drops off for targets far from the center of the explosion

     When the RPG-7 hits a vehicle and the passengers are not in the area of effect, it will only damage the vehicle. A direct hit on a passenger in a vehicle will cause damage to both the passenger and the vehicle 


     Optimized the character animation for taking out and putting away throwable items while moving

     Optimized the character animation for switching to other weapons while holding a Desert Eagle when crouching

     Players can now see the according quality color for weapon skins in various preview screens for loot boxes


Adventurer Welcoming Gift Box

     In order to thank all current and future Adventurers for their support for Ring of Elysium, we’ve created the Season 5 Adventurer Welcome Gift Box. The Adventurer Welcome Gift Box will be provided to all Adventurers upon logging in for the first time during Season 5

     The package not only contains a limited-time trial card of a random Adventurer Character and the AK15-Blazed weapon skin, but also some refreshing traversal equipment appearances!
