Fade to Silence is getting lots of new content in its latest update named “Fear”. The new update will feature a brand new region along with two new in-game characters called Ezra and Gani.

The new region lovingly referred too as “The Pit” will feature new gathering areas, points of interest, and a refinery located in the middle of the zone. Due to the distance of its location from your refuge, you will have to make sure that you are fully equipped and prepared to make the dangerous journey.

Here is also a brief synopsis of our two new companions:

  • Ezra “The Alchemist” managed to survive for a very long time, despite the harsh conditions, which is partly due to her widespread knowledge of every plant and herb that can still be found in the icy cold.
  • Gani, “The Huntress” is determined to reverse the Eclipse’s devastating effects on the planet. Ready to take on any task, Gani expects the same of everyone else. Likewise, Gani won’t hesitate to call out faults in camp leadership when she sees them.

There are also new threats to avoid in the new zone, the scariest being the ‘snow tornado’ which roams around the deep canyons, and if you’re not on guard will sweep you up, and throw you to your icy demise. Check out the video to see how tech and visual effects artists created the swirling funnel of doom.

Also introduced is a new “Refuge Upkeep System” where your followers in the camp are affected by the amount of firewood and food you have stored in the refuge. They also start to use resources that are stored in the refuge stash.
