Exile’s Return will feature:

- A new Volatist Hero, Aurelia Pelegren, the Daughter of Ruin joins the fight in Survival

The Daughter of Ruin
Players were initially introduced to Aurelia Pelegren in Flames of Retribution – Act I & II of the Campaign. Aurelia began as a member of The Order under the tutelage of Edwin Everard, an exemplary model of what The Order stood for.
Finding her own way in the world and deciding where her path would lead, Aurelia’s lust for power began to grow and the influence of the Volatists started to corrupt her.
Now, joining the ranks of the Volatists as their second Hero, Aurelia has learned to harness the force of Dark Essence in her own formidable way.
We look forward to announcing the release date of Exile’s Return shortly, as well as future plans for Age of Darkness: Final Stand.
