What is Illuvium?
Illuvium is an immersive game set on a mysterious alien world. As a stranded civilian turned Ranger, your mission is to navigate treacherous terrains, capture exotic creatures known as Illuvials, and harness resources to repair your ship for the journey home. Beyond a single game, Illuvium is part of an expansive ecosystem where progress and items carry over into our other games. This interconnected universe allows for a more rewarding experience where nothing you earn or learn goes to waste, reducing the learning curve and enhancing your gameplay with each new adventure.
What are Illuvium: Overworld and Illuvium: Arena?
Illuvium: Overworld is a third-person adventure that invites you into a world of discovery and danger. Step into the boots of a Ranger, exploring every corner of an alien planet, capturing powerful creatures known as Illuvials, and collecting valuable resources. You aim to level up, grow stronger and smarter, and prepare your team for bigger challenges.
Illuvium: Arena offers a change of pace with its tactical battles that feel like you’re directing an action-packed movie. It's all about the strategy - figuring out the best ways to win against AI in a relaxed setting or against other players in a competitive match.
Because both games are connected, the creatures you capture in the Overworld become your team in Arena, and your success in the Arena boosts your team, making your return to the Overworld adventures even more thrilling. The stronger you get in one game, the stronger you'll be in the other.
What are Illuvials, and how can they be utilized within the game?
Illuvials are the powerful and diverse creatures you'll encounter on your journey through the alien world of Illuvium. When you capture an Illuvial, it becomes a part of your growing team, ready to be deployed into action, helping you tackle and defeat stronger foes throughout the game.
In "Illuvium: Arena," your collected Illuvials become your champions, leading the charge as you formulate and execute your battle strategies. As the Illuvium universe expands with more games, your Illuvials will be central to your experiences, bringing depth and continuity to every new challenge you face. They are more than just collectables; they are your allies across every frontier of the Illuvium universe.
