Battlemages, get ready- you’ll need quick thinking, fast reflexes, and every ounce of your magic for the adventure that lies ahead. Here’s some of what’s coming as part of our largest game update yet:
*New playable content, gear, and lore in the free gameplay content update, “The Echollector”
*Continue the fight for Aveum with New Game+
*Brave the new Grand Magnus difficulty and take on foes like never before
And that’s not all! If you’re new to Immortals of Aveum, you’ll be able to start your journey in the Free Trial* on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, or the PC demo on Steam.
The Echollector Update (220.127.116.11) will arrive November 16, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC along with the console Free Trial. The PC demo will be rolling out to Steam in the second half of November. Be sure to catch up on Immortals of Aveum’s previous updates, including key fixes for DLSS, PC mouse sensitivity, console brightness, the launch of FSR3 on PC and overall performance improvements, all of which can be found here.
Additionally, we’re releasing an update today (18.104.22.168) that provides performance boosts on consoles and PC.
First and foremost, with update 22.214.171.124 comes the new lore and gameplay content for those who’ve reached the final chapters of the game.
“THE ECHOLLECTOR” Content Update is a new endgame objective for players who want more lore and new content to play through once they’ve reached the later chapters. The events of the Everwar left the Path weak, scattering chunks of the consciouscape across Aveum and creating corrupted Shatterfanes – portals to new, undiscovered areas.
Jak must rid Aveum of these Shatterfanes and put a stop to whatever malevolent forces are siphoning away the Path’s power in a new boss fight. The Shatterfanes will automatically be available upon reaching Glaivegate, giving you the chance to take on this new challenge.
Doing so will unlock new lore for you to experience and gear for you to take on your journeys through the Everwar.
NEW GAME+ has been one of the biggest requests we’ve gotten and we’re thrilled to be able to confirm it’s coming. NG+ will not only allow you to play through the game again with most of your abilities and spells, it’ll also give you the opportunity to further upgrade your gear and take on updated fights.
*Upgrade your Epic and Legendary gear to higher levels with the Forge in NG+
*Rebalanced enemy health, damage, and abilities
*Jak carries forward most spells and abilities unlocked in a previous playthrough
*Augment spells cannot carry forward due to their unlock requirements
*Adjustments made to experience and currency earned while playing
GRAND MAGNUS DIFFICULTY brings a whole new level of challenge to Aveum. Face down Sandrakk’s forces like never before in the most challenging mode yet. Every fight will be a battle for survival as you push your way through the Everwar and forge yourself into an Immortal worthy of the name.
And of course, this brand-new difficulty mode is available as a new playthrough or with New Game+!
Immortals of Aveum has been a labor of love for the team. We’re glad to get to release an update like this for a project we’ve been so passionate about, and are humbled by the joy it’s brought our players.
We’re continuing to work on making it the best game it can be, and your feedback helps make that possible. Keep an eye out for the full patch notes closer to the update’s release. We hope all of you who play the game—past, present, and future—can enjoy the new content and changes coming with this update.

– On PlayStation and Xbox at 9:00am PT on November 16th
