Version history

Version Changes
  • The Atlas of Worlds has been shuffled. Most maps have changed tier and location within the Atlas.
  • Many map bosses have also shifted around. Some have been retired and replaced!
  • The entire Atlas has been reworked. Many map names have changed, as have their balance, tier and position on the Atlas. Many maps have also had their boss fights swapped or completely reworked.
  • The rules used to generate monsters in endgame maps have been significantly reworked and rebalanced around the rate at which we expect players to reliably clear out the map. In general, narrow, linear maps will contain fewer total monsters than maps with complex layouts. We will be closely monitoring and adjusting the balance of this change and expect to make further changes and improvements over time.
  • Fixed various issues with the Ancient Architect in the Pier map, when it was twinned.
  • Fixed an issue where the Ancient Architect in the Pier map was playing a teleport effect at the wrong location.
  • Start of open beta. Old map items were wiped from the server. Map progress was re-tiered. The map is now known as Pier Map with Flame of Truth as the map boss.
Before 0.10.0
  • Introduced to the game. (The actual release date is not known as not documented as GGG only announced that they released 45 maps in version 0.9.11 and unsure which map are new and which one are returning map in version 0.10.0. The icon of "Tomb Map" previewed in closed beta (source: Dev Diary) is the same as Pier Map. Probably GGG shuffled the map icon.)
