Two New Legendary Animals -
A pair of apex predators are said to be making their home in local swamps, eluding even the most skilled of local hunters. The spotted Nightwalker Panther blends in with its surrounding vegetation in the mist and shadows of dusk near Bolger Glade; the albino Ghost Panther, meanwhile, has been seen hunting deer in Bluewater Marsh and the surrounding areas.
New Rewards From Gus' Trapper Store -
Bring the Nightwalker and Ghost Pelts to Gus’ Trapper Store to sell them for a handsome amount of coin. Doing so will unlock the corresponding Garment Sets for purchase – wear them with pride as you regale your chums with exaggerated tales of bravery.
New Dead of the Night Mode
Brand new mode Dead of Night pits four teams in a gruesome fight for survival - against each other and The Dead. Points are scored for taking out The Dead, with higher point tally for causing the demise of your rival players.
Find and steal a Night Stalker mask to take on supernatural abilities and the competitive edge. Complete a Round of Dead of Night anytime over the next seven days to earn triple the usual payout and a care package consisting of 3 Tomahawks, 10 Volatile Fire bottles and 25 Incendiary Buckshot Slugs.
