We put effectively over 100 dungeons within the sport — lots of these are usually not in Fractured Peaks.

Some dungeons are about killing all of the monsters, some have totally different sorts of goals. A few of them have bosses on the finish, whereas others have occasions on the finish. It’s actually about – through the level-up interval – experiencing all the totally different dungeons that exist on this planet, and naturally, within the beta you’re solely getting a fraction of that.”
