New Event! Trek Through the Hidden Temple 

Montana James dusted off his fedora before fixing back on his head. The frantic slide under the closing warehouse door almost claimed his hat for the umpteenth time. He was still clutching the tattered map of the rainforest temple as he picked himself up and ran for the waiting boat plane that would take him to deepest, darkest Peru...

"Throw me the idol; I’ll throw you the whip!"

The latest event takes our Crusaders on an adventure in the finest traditions of archeologists who also happen to be great at adventures. Yesteryear chic from the 1930s, an evil regime of bad guys and a race to recover ancient treasure in a temple in a jungle await you.

New Crusader! Recruit Montana James



The Trek Through the Hidden Temple event introduces our new square-jawed Crusader, Montana James, one of two new heroes to add to your roster. He requires rescuing himself after getting mixed up with a group of jackbooted soldiers.

For the first objective, the Crusaders will need to escort Montana to area 100 all the while being chased by soldiers who debuff all DPS and abilities for Crusaders in ever-shifting slots.

“Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”

The second objective sees the Crusaders pitted against a scaly new antagonist called King Draco. Draco intermittently summons his snake minions to attack a random Crusader, again debuffing all DPS and abilities for 30 seconds.

The remaining objectives include Daddy Says So, where the Crusaders are saddled with the daughter of the Crusader's benefactor (the guy paying for the expedition). Unfortunately, you're also weighed down with her luggage taking up valuable slots all the way to area 150.

New Objective! Daddy Says So



Watch Out For Booby Traps will see a random slot fall foul of the classic pit-and-spikes trap. Every 10 areas different slots will lose all the DPS and formation abilities making reaching area 200 a challenge.

The final new objective is Mali Ka. Evil spirits (or maybe some dodgy local food) is turning the Crusaders against each other. Until you reach area 250, you'll be attacked by your own friends! Crusaders not in your formation will launch themselves at the other Crusaders intent on stopping them from finishing the objective.

Good luck, Crusaders, and before you undertake this epic adventure, take inspiration from the immortal words of Montana himself: "Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory."

The Hidden Temple event will run until June 21st at Noon PDT.

New Objectives! 

We like to think of Crusaders as the gift that keeps on giving and today we give you another update. We've added two new objectives for the Mischief at Mugwarts campaign and two new objectives to the Ready Player Two campaign.

In Accio Monsters, the Crusaders accidentally cast an Accio charm, and now monsters move 10x faster than normal! You're going to have to create your most effective tank line to block the onslaught of monsters all the way to area 450.

Monsters are 10x faster in the Accio Monsters Objective


If you thought that was rough, it's going to get rougher than a sandpaper-covered loofah in The Final Battle objective. Deadly magic is flying everywhere, and death curses will randomly spawn and one-shot your front-most Crusaders until they wipe your formation. Good luck reaching area 500.

Making games isn't as easy as you think. Sometimes bugs creep in. In Glitch Out, the Crusaders will experience a whole host of random glitches that will both help and hinder your progress to area 450. Some will temporarily boost your DPS by +400% while other gremlins in the code will deactivate all your formation abilities. It's going to be a digital roller coaster.

Glitches randomly affect Crusaders on this journey to area 450


The final new objective, Video Game of Thrones only allows you to pick Royal Crusaders for your formation to reach 450. That means you'll be limited to their Royal Highnesses Princess, Sal, Brogon, Thalia, Reginald, Siri and Leerion.

Only Royal Crusaders are available in the Video Game of Thrones objective


To celebrate the new objectives and the beginning of the summer we're going to give five lucky Crusaders white-hot buffs to complement their formation abilities and DPS until Monday June 6 at 12pm PDT.

  • Sasha: +200% Bulwark Ability
  • Natalie Dragon: +400% Base DPS
  • Khouri: +200% Koffee Potion ability
  • Merci: +100% Gold buff
  • Queen Siri: +100% Queen's Decree ability
We can't wait to hear what you think of the new additions to the game!
