In Update 2.2, the Lead Environment Artist EvilOnTheInside brings a complete visual rework to the Halcyon Fold. Full of lush grass and plant life, the new “Classic” skin is brighter, greener and provides better visual clarity to players. “The new map skin adds life and vibrancy to our gameplay,” explains CaptainNeato. When a seasonal map is not being used, this will be the default map skin.

Players entering the Halcyon Fold in Update 2.2 will notice that the color palette has been completely changed. Before, Vainglory’s default map had a desert aesthetic featuring hard-packed brown earth. The lighting has been cooled down so it looks more like dusk than sunset, thus deepening the shadows in the jungle. In effect, the lane is brighter but the jungle is darker, providing a bigger contrast between geographical features. We wanted to see something as inviting and life-filled as a rainforest.

The creation and implementation of the new default map skin creates opportunities for Vainglory’s art team to focus on creating new map skins for the different game modes. As Vainglory continues to develop and expand its offerings, players should look forward to both updates on the game’s classic features and exciting new content.
