Skeeve’s Shop Reformat

Skeeve has done some renovations, and has set up a more subtle store on the left side of the main menu, nested in the Newsfeed

  • The Skeeve’s Shop button has moved into the left menu
  • All premium dice will be removed for purchase, upon the launch of v2.0 at the latest. These are now unlockable via in-game challenges/conditions and any previously purchased will remain in your inventory.
  • The tabs appear as follows...
    • Collectors Edition
    • Featured
    • Skins
    • DLC

‘Options’ Reformat

The Options menu has been updated to include more appropriate sub headings such as Interface and Game Preferences.

  • Options split into the following subheadings...
    • Video & Audio
    • Game Preferences
    • Interface
    • Controls
    • Account Info
    • Send Feedback
  • Added interface option; Automatic Encounter Peeking (Off by default).When turned on, Automatic Encounter Peeking will cause you to automatically view any combat/peril that you’re able to.

Loot Consolidation

To bring older collections in line with newer ones, we are replacing all Chests and all Keys to the newer ‘Keyless Chest’ format.

  • Dice Collections which previously required Chests AND Keys will be changed to require just Chests. This affects Seasons 1-5.
  • Upon starting up v2.0 (including the beta), any Keys for those seasons in your Steam Inventory will be converted (silently) to Chests for the same season.
  • While the beta is running, opening a Chest for one of these seasons will still require a key.
  • *Importantly*, this means that anyone who boots up the beta will be left with no keys for Seasons 1-5, and be unable to open their Chests on either branch until 2.0 actually goes live. Players who do not boot up the beta will be unaffected by this, and will be able to open Seasons 1-5 using their Chests and Keys as normal until v2.0 is live for all.
  • This also applies for Season 1-5 Chests earned during the beta - they will be unopenable DURING the beta, due to requiring Keys, but will become openable when 2.0 goes live.
  • When v2.0 goes live, we will be making all Keys non-marketable and non-tradeable to prevent confusion. Booting up 2.0 will convert them to Chests, which will be marketable and tradeable as normal.
