MMO Wayfinder gets major ‘Call of the Void’ update in October

We’ve been really enjoying Wayfinder here at TSA towers, the brand new MMO from Airship Syndicate, a studio built by a batch of Darksiders’ alumni which includes the iconic comic-book artist Joe Madureira. It’s currently out in Early Access on PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, and we were very excited to discover that it’s all set to receive its first major update entitled ‘Call of the Void’, which will bring a host of quality of life improvements as well as the arrival of brand new Wayfinder, Grendel.

As you can see from the teaser trailer, Grendel appears to be a fairly angry beastman, and he looks as though he’s going to get a real kick out of tearing goblins apart as he explores the land of Evenor and the ever-changing Gloom.

The server queue issues that many players encountered at the start of early access have been largely resolved, and the Airship team have announced that they’re now working on content and quality of life fixes in-game – both of which this update addresses.

Live in-game events are debuting with this update, and there’ll be a new expedition, a new boss called “Drill Machine” – which may of may not mean their main weapon is something spinny and sharp – as well as a new weapon and new rewards.

This update will be followed by the Founders Season 2 update later this year – which essentially marks the halfway point to the game’s ‘full release’ in 2024. Wayfinders is set to become a free-to-play title at that point, but if you’re interested in getting in early, you can pick up a Founders Pack on each platform for a very reasonable £13.99.

Even at this stage, Wayfinders is one of the best looking MMOs we’ve ever seen, with that Darksiders DNA flowing through to the weighty hack and slash action. It’s great for pairing up with a group of friends too, with parties of three heading into the Gloom together and facing off against some seriously challenging foes.

We can’t wait to check out the Call of the Void update, and we’ll keep you in the loop about everything Wayfinder as it draws closer!
