State of the game: Ri6
« on: May 30, 2023, 01:14:12 pm »
Hello everyone!

As the 4th-anniversary celebration of Rebirth begins to wind down, we would like to share a few details about what to anticipate in Rebirth Issue 6!

An Epic Challenge is on the Horizon

We heard how much players love a good challenge. In Rebirth Issue 5: Clockstoppers we introduced ramped-up speed run challenges which unlocked new rewards. But what if speed isn't your thing? Then we have something exciting in store and can't wait to share more details about what's to come. In Rebirth Issue 6 we are expanding and improving the available challenge options. Successfully completing challenges will unlock several new reward choices and many different badges. We have created a brand new range of rewards to cater to everyone's preferences and interests. More info on that will be coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy these accompanying images.





Epic Powersets and Proliferation Arrivals

Martial Prowess for Scrappers and Stalkers is being adjusted in RI6. Specifically, the Aimed Shot power is now Keen Quarrel for Scrappers and Assassin's Bolt for Stalkers. Both have had their recharge times equalized, their damage increased to match the new recharge time, and more. We did this to ensure that it was as polished as possible so we could turn our attention to the release of Martial Prowess for Tankers and Brutes!

With their own set of powers coupled with a unique power for each AT. Here is the name and description of each of these unique powers to give you a taste.

Tanker Specific Power

Art of War
Auto: Global Chance of +DMG (all), +End Discount
Your practiced moves allow you to get into a rhythm that blends a perfect combination of offense and defense. Every attack you make has a high chance of increasing your damage (all) by 7.5 percent% and endurance discount by 3.84% for 10 seconds as your rhythm makes your attacks more efficient. This effect stacks 3 times. You must be level 41 and own Throwing Dagger or Battle Hardened to purchase this power.

Brute Specific Power

Reckless Abandon
Self +Fury, +Res (all)
You succumb to your rage and begin fighting with no regard for your well-being. This power gives you a large amount of Fury and increases your damage resistance to everything for 30 seconds as you become too angry to feel the damage. You sacrifice a portion of your own health in your ferocity.  You must be level 41 and own Throwing Dagger or Battle Hardened to purchase this power. Recharge: Long

Rounding off the melee mayhem is a long-requested proliferation in Broadsword and Katana. Now proliferated to Tankers!




Rebirth of the Community Information Kiosk

Kiosks were originally functional in-game leaderboards for tracking player stats released in Issue 2: A Shadow of the Past during the original run of the game. They were removed from the original game after causing performance issues. With Rebirth issue 6, the long-dormant Kiosks spring to life once more!  We can't wait to see who'll be the City's top punishes!





Power Info Emergence

We believe that you should have all power information at your fingertips without needing to go to secondary resources for your information, so we're expanding the information that we can reveal to you through the power info window.  This is a system that we will continue to refine and expand continuously in the years ahead.





Rising Quality of Life

Our commitment to polish and refinement at Rebirth continues in Ri6.

Vigilance: Defenders inherent receives a long-awaited update.

Training, Dual Origin, and Single Origin Enhancements will degrade a whole lot slower.

Some powers are going to become a lot more Attractive.

Easily pair gloves together with the click of a button.

A new option lets you disable the blinking email notification. Plus, emails will no longer discard claimed items when there isn't enough space in your inventory.




One last beginning to share

Rebirth Issue 6 is set up to be a precise strike of features and polish as we recover from outrunning Synapse and prepare for the exciting future. There is one more thing I am able to reveal at this juncture.


Rebirth Issue 6 will be titled...

DAWN OF GENESIS


On behalf of myself and the staff here at Rebirth, we hope you enjoy this preview of some of the great things coming in Rebirth Issue 6.
