Check out what we’ve been up to:


Brothers in Arms

This week, we announced that there is a Brothers in Arms series in the works, with showrunner Scott Rosenbaum at the helm. The series will focus on previously classified World War II stories, beginning with a military scandal that was kept secret for 40 years.

Hotfixes – Thanks to everyone who’s jumped into Revenge of the Cartels and Mayhem 2.0 this past week!

While today’s adjustments to drop rates and Anointment rates continue these improvements, our efforts are still focused on addressing your concerns. Check out the full hotfix notes here, and if you’d like to provide additional feedback or report further issues, please submit a detailed ticket to
