The final major update to Darkfire Heroes is on the way. The team is currently testing to ensure the highest quality possible, but we're anticipating a release for early next week.
A quick note before we jump into the patch notes.
The Discord server has now been transferred over to the Discord Council, a selected group of leaders from various top teams in DFH. If you haven't already joined the now 'unofficial' / Community-operated server, please do so by clicking HERE!
With the new year, the final level of the campaign has been added along with 2 other new areas, prepare yourself for the final fight in the Darkfire Crucible. We also present Nightmare mode, the ultimate challenge fit for the highest level players.
