Watch the video below to see footage of the new Overworld beta that was leaked last week:

Overworld is one of four games Illuvium is building at the same time, all based in the same world and sharing blockchain assets. There is a resource producing city-builder Illuvium Zero, an arena autobattler Illuvium Arena and a collectible card game llluvium Beyond.

In Overworld, players explore vast biomes across seven unique and hostile regions. The aim is to capture rare illuvials, creatures that inhabit the world and possess special abilities, and mine valuable resources to forge new equipment.

The new build will include access to two new areas, the Abyssal Basin and Brightland Steppes, new illuvials and movement mechanics, and improvements to Arena’s survival mode.

For a chance to play, gamers are invited to register for the beta test by creating an Illuvium account here and completing a beta application form. Those with access to previous private betas will automatically have access to private beta 2.
