It’s time to gear up for the most exciting season yet at Black Box VR – Season 8, “Welcome to the Arena Raids!” This season will be unlike any other, with a major focus on Teams! First off, and by popular demand, we are expanding the size of teams to a maximum of 12 members! Get ready for things to get a lot more social!
During this three-month season, you’ll have the chance to participate in three Boss Raids at the end of each month, with the final week in June scheduled for the ultimate battle with the Final Boss – Skullcrusher! But before that, you’ll have three weeks of Team Tactical Preparation each month to earn Gear, Boosts, and upgrades to prepare you for the end-of-the-month Raids. You’ll have three workouts during the raid week, and we’ll be featuring the teams each week on the leaderboard within your gym, as well as nationally, to see where your team ranks. Here is an example timeline of the 3-week Pre-Raid Training, followed by each 1-week Raid:
The higher you climb the ladder by defeating these NPC bosses, the more you’ll be featured and have a chance to win the Season 8 Award and the end-of-season celebration party!
As usual, we are releasing some exclusive swag items that can only be earned this Season. The higher you climb on the Individual Season XP Ladder, the more amazing swag you’ll unlock. This Season we have some HOT items that will make your friends want to raid your closet… see what we did there?
And that’s not all – we’re also launching all-new social events that will happen in the gym, as well as online within Discord and Twitch. We’re expanding the Leagues by adding higher levels of Diamond Arenas, allowing you to progress from Diamond Level 1 all the way up to Diamond Level 5!
You’ll also find brand new and improved gear items and a gear store page with critical upgrades needed to reach and defeat the Final Boss.
We’re thrilled to bring you these new features and hope you’re as excited as we are for Season 8! Keep an eye out for more detailed emails coming soon with everything you need to know to prepare for the Arena Raids and push hard because many items expire with the Season!
