Arboria’s Launch Update is Available!

10 Sep 2021

Yotunz!

Arboria has changed once more, this time with the final major update, the Launch Update, marking the end of our Early Access journey!  We assure you, the Trollz are now more beautiful than ever. 

Don’t miss your chance to get the game 15% off before September 16!

Get the game:

We’ll continue to pamper our Trollz with future patches and bug fixes to further polish the game, so be sure to share your feedback with us on Steam or Discord!

See the new changes the Launch Update introduces below:

New game modes: New Game+ and New Game++

Accessible after finishing the game, these new modes will let you gain more insight into the story of the Yotunz. Beware, they are only for the best fighters! See for yourself what challenges wait ahead—and if you can brave them.

New NPC: Veector

Veector is a Troll Printer who has the power to resurrect the fallen Yotunz in the graveyard. How much are you willing to pay for a second chance?

New enemy class: Robots

If you manage to kill them, look out, Robots don’t die quietly and take what revenge they can with their last bit of power. Their bodies explode when killed, so make sure to keep your distance.

New Symbiont: Plasma Blade

With its edge covered in sharp Reptilz teeth, the Plasma Blade is a lethal weapon. Slash through Robots as if they were nothing more than mushy cave mushrooms.
