February 25, 2020 PORTLAND, Oregon - Virtrium LLC today announced that they have released the Ruin of Tazoon expansion that introduces a devastating calamity to the main city Tazoon.

A significant focus of this update are the quests and story that are behind the Ruin of Tazoon. While all expansions have a lot of story to tell, this update is unique in the destruction of Istaria's main city, Tazoon.

In addition to the significant changes around Tazoon, a massive volcano called Mount Fury has erupted within the region known as Char, altering the landscape in its wake. Into this fiery devastation new enemies have emerged and now stake their claim on lands and resources on the slopes of the raging mountain.

For further details and the complete release notes, please see the Istaria Community:
