Brown Dust Gets Friendly with the Companion Update

SEATTLE – JULY 11, 2019 Brown Dust, the tactical RPG published by Neowiz, is back again with another massive update and tons of free rewards for returning players. In the largest content drop since the hit mobile game’s launch, the Companion Update brings a whole new level of customization and progression to the battlefield.

The new Companion units, each of whom are bonded to a unique Mercenary and obtainable through recruitment methods already familiar to players, raise the Skill Level Cap of their assigned counterpart from +10 to +15. Furthermore, as they grow in power and change appearance based on their level, their lore and backstory will also become available for players to consume. Utilizing the accompanying Fate system, players will be able to obtain the initial Companion for each Mercenary without utilizing Scrolls or Diamonds.

“One of Brown Dust’s biggest strengths is in its huge cast of interesting Mercenaries,” said Sean Kim, Game Director for Brown Dust. “Our goal with the Companion system is to take that even further by giving players new ways to improve their Mercenaries and take the strength of their armies to all new heights. Even lesser used Mercenaries will receive Companions, affecting their formation viability, as well as initiating a shift to the overall meta for our Captains to master.”

In addition Neowiz have listened to player feedback and are increasing the pull rates for Mercenaries and Companions with an ever-increasing amount of Mercenaries and Companions being added regularly. No more struggle to spend dozens of scrolls only to get nothing you were hoping for. Chance-Up Banners will now guarantee a ★5 Companion following a predetermined number of attempts.

Celebrating 500 Days of Global Brown Dust

During the months of July and August, players completing Event Missions can exchange collected materials for up to three Companions, as well as receive log-in rewards, including a free ★5 Mercenary. What’s more, beginning July 18th, in order to mark Brown Dust’s 500th day since launching in Japan (or since the Global launch), players on any server can log-in to receive a ★5 Random Mercenary, Diamonds, and more!

A special 500th Day Package, granting a ★5 Skill Book, Premium Scrolls, Honor Points, Red Slimes, and more, will be available in the Diamond store from July 17-30th.
