Can you withstand the strength of waves upon waves of horrifying Gargoyles? Defend the portals in Nightmare Horde, an extreme difficulty variation of the classic Horde Mode.

When you’re not busy defeating creatures from the fiery underworld, check out the new Disarmed visual effects that have been added to the Experimental queue. Then, head on down to Mallhalla, where you’ll find the New West Cassidy Skin bursting through the saloon doors ready for a standoff duel. If fighting those gargoyles tires you out, try the new Faint Emote. We’ve also added 9 new Avatars, including country flags and Doodles, so stand ready with your Avatar Cape and Flag Emote!

We’ve also added new challenges to the Challenges Preview available in Offline Play, made game improvements, bug fixes, and so much more. Log in and get ready to BRAWL!

Nightmare Horde

Patch 7.04 introduces a different kind of challenge to Brawlhalla. When selecting Horde mode in both Custom Lobbies and Offline Play, you’ll have the option to select between classic Horde and the new Nightmare Horde mode.

Nightmare Horde is our first ever extreme difficulty variation of an existing Game Mode. Featuring all new gargoyle creature designs and an exclusive Horde variation of Demon Island. The rules are the same, earn the most points by stopping the approaching gargoyles from entering the portals.

This is intended to be extremely difficult for even the most accomplished portal defenders. Team up with your most trusted allies and see if you can withstand the onslaught!

Player Indicator Enhancements

There are some new updates to the player indicator preferences.

  • Names and icons can now be set individually to appear over just yourself, all players, team, or no one
  • New “mixed” icon mode that displays different icons per team.
  • New Name/Icon size preference option allows players to make icons and/or names larger or smaller.
  • Added an outline to icons to make them more visible.

This update should help everyone, especially colorblind players, know which player is on which team during gameplay.These changes reflect our ongoing efforts to make Brawlhalla more accessible to all.

Test Features

We’re excited to add a new test feature that shows an effect that indicates when a Legend has been disarmed. This can be played in the Experimental queue and any Custom Game with Test Features enabled. Also, the Dodge Cooldown changes have been removed from Test Features and did not graduate.

New Disarmed Visual Effects

There is a new visual effect that shows when a Legend has been disarmed by an opponent. The effect appears as bright colored sparks that fly off the Legend.

Experimental Dodge Cooldown

The Dodge Cooldown changes have been removed from Test Features. The longer cooldown proved to be too punishing and resulted in fewer moments of interaction for most players, with less incentive to maintain ground control or return to the ground.
