Anthem revealed that the Icetide Season is going to have an extended run all the way through February. This include everything from the Freeplay Events, Challenges, Weekly Strongholds, up to the Seasons Store.

Icetide Season

The Icetide Season was launched with Update 1.60 and introduced localized ice storms to Bastion. This event offered seasonal themed strongholds along with freeplay time trials. There are also new challenges along with a new legendary world event titled Icetide Coolant Harvesting. Icetide also includes more powerful drops, like all Legendary loot drops on GM3 now drop +5 Gear Score.

The extension of the Icetide Season is part of update 1.62 which also brought bugs and fixes along with it. These include:

  • The wait time for Time Trial has been reduced to 20 seconds from 60 seconds.
  • Tyrant Mine is now available in the seasonal Icetide challenge rotation.
    • This was supposed to be released with Icetide but there was an issue detected during testing. The decision was to release it until the issue was fully resolved.
  • Fixed an issue where seasonal wreaths were playing their collection sound effect when they spawned into the world incorrectly.
  • Weekly Stronghold challenge completion credit is now correctly tracking based on completed strongholds and not how many players are in the session at the time of completion.
  • The “Soldier’s Reward” inversion is now correctly using its own icon as intended.

  • Resolved a problem with the Daily: Contracts challenge where the amount of minor crystal rewarded was incorrect.
    • Challenge now correctly grant 500 crystals.
  • The First Fog wall in the Heart of Rage has been raised to prevent gaining score multiplier earlier than intended.
  • Resolved issues with the Frost Master challenge not properly displaying whether or not Left Out In The Cold had been completed.
  • Resolved issues with Collection: Left Out In The Cold being blocked by an issue with some wreaths.
    • For those who are unable to interact with any more wreaths but the challenge has not been completed, entering freeplay automatically completes the challenge.
  • Resolved an issue with the Time Trials not tracking progress towards challenges.
  • Resolved issue where players were unable to access the Seasonal Store from the Launch Bay.
