Patch Notes: 1.2.0. - Have yourself a Pagan Little Christmas...

Brace for an epic winter with improved balance, new achievements, and our special winter event! Patch 1.2.0. will go live on December 19. Servers will be down from 05:00 to 06:00 UTC.

With Christmas creeping nearer and Santa stealing all the glory, we decided to give out some gifts of our own to spread some cheer.

In this patch, we introduce some highly requested balance changes, fix a large number of bugs, and introduce new tools for challenge: Steam achievements and post-battle stats. We’ve also decorated the Pantheon and introduced holiday-friendly login and loading screens. Last but most certainly not least, in the spirit of giving, we added a new pet to the game: Sasha of the Far East! 

The seventh in a line of reincarnated hero companions, the proud Sasha will only accept the greatest of champions as her ally. She does accept snacks as payment, though.

Pet bonus: Drop chance increased by 10%. To acquire our latest pet, log in between December 19th and January 9th.

Steam achievements

Steam Achievements are now live! 

Roll up your sleeves and get to earning 123 new achievements in Pagan Online to show off to your friends.

Hero level achievements will be retroactive.

Game screens

We have added post-battle statistics to the Victory screen so you can see exactly what works and how many enemies you felled. Just a tip – it’s better in co-op so you can compare damage and kills. Who doesn’t love a bit of healthy competition? 😉
