Dear players,

We've been working on improving existing systems since version 2.5, Subscription, Quest Tracking, Tutorial, Electrum Shop, etc, and new content as well.

First-run Cross-server PvP Wrap-up
First fight of the brand new Cross-server PvP came to an end on Sunday, we're glad to see players enjoying the fierce competition. The defeated Nexans have started pouncing back to retake lost ground, and there are new challengers as well. The higher the rank, the closer the epic Steam Griffon becomes. Can't wait to see the next round fired up.

Time to stand firm!

Tower of Peril really lives up to its name, waves of mobs with sick Power maliciously lurk on each layer of the Tower. All players have a chance to assemble an awesome the Steam Scorpion if they can survive as many Layers as possible or strike it rich with opening up some Chest (it's rare of course!).

What 2.6.1 Brings In?

In 2.6.1, we will overhaul the Crafting system; all functions inside it will be reworked and the new interface will be more friendly and easy to understand. Catalyst will be completely unnecessary in the new Crafting system but we are not simply removing it -all Catalysts will turn into something valuable instead. As the development and testing are not completed yet, the preview screenshots are pretty rough (but still can see the difference):

In addition, 2.6.1 will introduce a new in-game currency called Bound Electrum which replaces the old Spiremarks, which still can be viewed on the Shop interface. It looks like Electrum and can be used in exactly the same way (purchasing items from the Electrum Shop, etc), but it’s Purple and bound to your character. Anything purchased with bound electrum is, you guessed it, bound. People with remaining catalysts after the upgrade will exchange them for Bound Electrum, which is a good trade.

Always remember to keep an eye on our official website for news, updates and events. Have fun!

City of Steam is a free-to-play and browser-based game, which means you don't need to pay for playing this game and download.

What I would like to see soon is how the inventory is managed along with any capabilities of weapon-switching, and how the spell/skills are learned. ;p

I didn't play or get an invite to the beta, so I don't know. xD

We did a Dev Journal on where we are with the skil tree at the moment, check it out:–-skill-tree. It looks great!

Weapon management is pretty simple -- if you want to wield one, you drag it to the appropriate slot on the equipment screen. Each character has two one-handed weapon slots, one two-handed weapon slot, and one shield slot. You can switch between dual-wielding, wielding one-handed weapon with your shield, and wielding a two-handed weapon at any time during battle to adjust your damage output and defensive status.

We will release an Alpha version in July, you can subscribe to our newsletters for receiving development updates and Alpha key.

Guys, there's something wrong with warder. He have shield on back and he's fighting with 2h sword? WTF? It's only in this video? I mean if he's a tank he should use his shield.

Haha, dude, this is because Titan Grip is a two-handed weapon. See the little weapon icon close to the potion bar? The sure thing is, you can switch to one-handed weapon mode, than you can fight enemies with your shied and light weapon. The warder is capable of carrying two weapons.
