Version 1.5 is themed around the Recursive Colony, an electronic, hive-mind faction of robots constructing robots and intruding upon the player social hub of Dome City.

“Players seeking a quest-driven, narrative experience post level 20 can now level-up in the new Open Zone as an alternative to, or in addition to, our instanced missions”, says Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “We’ve also included a new set of instanced PvE and PvP content for players at all levels.”
