Atlas Update Version 15.1 Patch Notes For PC

  • New “Fountain of Youth” quest will appear for characters aged 90 years and higher. The “Fountain of Youth” (currently represented as a magical particle effect) appears in a single Golden Age Ruins across the ATLAS, near the Power Stone Container. Every 50 in-gamedays, it teleports to another Golden Age Ruins, on a cycle. If you find the Fountain, and activate it, your character will be set back to age 20, and if you do this when you were aged over 90 years, you’ll gain a significant permanent statistics boost (you can do this multiple times to gain further boosts, each time when you’re at least 90 years old).
