Ring of Elysium, Tencent’s snow-themed battle royale, is approaching the end of its first season. Developers have already begun teasing the second season of the game. Our first sneak-peaks of the new content include a new map, and two new equipment kits.
Alongside a brand new map, season two of Ring of Elysium will introduce the BMX and Grappling Hook kits. Earlier this week, the official Twitter account shared a picture of the upcoming map, have a look:
The new map is set on an island, GameWatcher reports. Looking at the top-down view of the map, it’s clear that the area has a significantly warmer climate. There is no sign of any snow or ice, even on the mountains.
With a new environment comes new equipment. Although snowboards can still function on non-snowy/icy surfaces, the setting of the new map doesn’t exactly fit the description of the pack. Ring of Elysium developers have confirmed that two new traversal gadgets are coming to the game in season two. Teaser images featuring the BMX and grappling hook equipment items have been shared.
Assuming a maximum of three possible packs per map, the grappling hook and BMX packs will replace the snowboarding and climbing packs. The glider pack, however, will still be available to pick in the new map.
Judging from the teaser scenery image, it seems that high altitude peaks and mountains are still part of the game. This is likely why the developers kept the glider pack as an option. Although the glider pack is easily the most versatile option in the first map, it might not be as effective in the new map.
The developers have also said new vehicles will be added to Ring of Elysium. Considering the nature of the map, it’s highly likely that sea vehicles will make an appearance. More information about Ring of Elysium’s season two will be revealed as we approach its launch.
