Ring of Elysium has been receiving quite a few updates the past several weeks! We get some sound, performance, UI, and a quite a few bug fixes. Check out the developer post below.

[Update: 12/22/2018]

Ring of Elysium’s live servers will go down for maintenance for approximately two hours at:
December 22nd, 16:00 to 18:00 PST (UTC -8)
December 23rd, 0:00 to 2:00 GMT (UTC +0)

During the maintenance period, the game will not be available and ongoing games will be interrupted directly. Please be prepared beforehand to avoid this issue. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

New gamemode- From Dusk Till Dawn
  • In order to assure our players’ experience in the existing gamemode while we test and optimize this new gamemode in a progressive manner, we have decided to use a limited-time-only method to open and test From Dusk Till Dawn, this gamemode will be available for 3-time periods throughout the day (set in consideration for players in different regions)
    • This gamemode will be available every day at: 4:00-6:00, 12:00-14:00, 20:00-22:00 (PST)
    • During the test phase of this gamemode, the versions might be unstable and there might be some bugs that can occur, we sincerely appreciate your understanding and support. We'd also greatly appreciate any kind of suggestions and feedback from you at any time! Please send them to our official customer service E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Please note: This gamemode will become available after today's server maintenance
Gamemode play-rules:
  • In the dark night, Ymir surge in stages, players must strive to maintain their body temperature levels and survive until dawn rises at the end of the game (around 20 minutes), leading to a victory
  • To survive, players need to compete with other players to fight for a variety of resources, including weapons and equipment, fuel, food and so on
  • When Ymir surges, players need to start a campfire indoors and stay close to the fire to maintain their body temperature. The campfire needs fuel to keep burning, and food can be consumed to restore health and help to survive the cold
  • All resource locations will be shown on the map, and the positions of all players will also be revealed at certain times, players will need to flexibly adjust their tactics and strategies in order to survive until dawn
  • Please note: The keybind for consumable food items in this gamemode are default to unbound, players can go to the game settings and set their preferred keybinds if needed

Event related
  • “Christmas Carnival Week” raffle event
    • During the event period (from December 24th to December 31st, 23:59), players can log-in to the game every day to participate in the reward raffle. From three reward cards, choose one and claim your awesome reward! This event will last for 8 days, if players participate in the raffle for 7 days, they will be guaranteed to win the Lynn- Christmas Style! Hikage’s special style will also be included in the potential reward list, however, Gavin’s special style will be introduced in the upcoming New Year event very soon, stay tuned!
