Oceanside / California / November 22nd, 2021 – After entering Early Access on Steam in August, GrapeOcean Technologies has been hard at work providing 14 updates to Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness, all as a direct result of passionate feedback from its fans. 

With Phase 2 now live, adventure seekers have several new places to visit in Isilmerald. Explore the northern frozen harbor of Freynagar, separated from the city by a huge ice dome, or take a trip to Amanuel's Hoard, the seaside fort owned by the greediest man in history. Be careful though, the conflict has begun to brew on both sides of the civil war around Isilmerald; you may just be key to resolving it. 

Phase 2 will not only add new main quest lines and locations, but also rebalance items, spells, and damage scaling, and improve character creation for new players. Check out the extensive list of features below.

Key Features From Phase 2

  • 3 Additional Main Quests: Choices you take affect the game world and the overall story in the last chapter.
  • Fresh Side Quests: A variety of new side quests have been added, including long anticipated companion quests.
  • Re-imagined Starting Experience: The game’s introduction has been completely, revamped with more information, more player guidance and options for how to complete it

  • Character Generation Refinements: The first of two significant improvements to character creation is an improved experience as well as improved UI.Added new low-level spells
