New World: Umbrus

In the midst of the shadows, ominous magic has slowly been seeping its way into Ignus. Not much is known, but reports have been circulating and it seems the Cultists have been up to no good. How will you get to this new world? Follow the trail of dark magic to HealthClyffe, a portal to this new world can be accessed there; but fair warning to all magic users to err on the side of caution as this realm is riddled with the dark arts, only the strongest will persevere.

All New Summoning Essence

We asked our community to vote on what essence they would like to see in Citadel, and we’re pleased to announce that Summoning Essence is now ready to be mastered! Sharpen your wands and pull out your spell books to learn what it takes to master the art of summoning.

Brand new Spells:

  • Summon Aggressive: based on the caster’s strength, summons a mystical combat ally
  • Summon Mount: based on the caster’s strength, summons a mystical rideable creature
  • Summon Followers: instantly summons all tamed creatures who are set to “follow” to the caster’s location
  • Summon Party: instantly summons all players in the caster’s party to the caster’s location
  • Reanimate: cast at a fresh corpse to bring life back to the deceased creature
  • Summon Turret: summon a turret at the impact location to automatically fight nearby enemies

We’ve been listening to the community, in addition to the new summoning essence we have created a new mastery level creature storage for you to house more tames. Scattered throughout Umbrus are undiscovered creatures; you may be the first to encounter them and tame yourself a new companion.

Xbox One X Enhanced

Citadel: Forged with Fire is a massive online sandbox RPG with elements of magic, spellcasting and inter-kingdom conflict. As a newly minted apprentice of the magic arts, you will set off to investigate the dangerous world of Ignus. Your goal: create a name for yourself and achieve notoriety and power among the land's ruling Houses. You have complete freedom to pursue your own destiny; hatch plots of trickery and deceit to ascend the ranks among allies and enemies, become an infamous hunter of other players, build massive and unique castles, tame mighty beasts to do your bidding, and visit uncharted territories to unravel their rich and intriguing history. The path to ultimate power and influence is yours to choose. EXPLORE A MASSIVE FANTASY WORLD
Welcome to the magical world of Ignus: a 36 square kilometer landmass of sweeping plains, dense forests, craggy mountains, festering swamps and frozen tundra. Leave no stone unturned as you explore dangerous caves and ancient ruins to recover powerful artifacts and uncover a rich history spanning thousands of years. Embark on a journey across the land to find the perfect place for you and your allies to call home. STUDY THE ARCANE ARTS
Master a diverse range of powerful spells. Discover your conduit of choice among a huge selection of mystic wands and staves, magically imbued axes, swords, maces and hammers, and enchanted gauntlets. CREATE ALLIANCES AND FORGE AN EMPIRE
Align your efforts with fellow Warlocks to create a mighty House. Create an internal hierarchy of power, design and plant your own House flag, share your resources to build huge castles and team up to hunt legendary creatures. Wage war with opposing Houses or hatch plans of deceit and trickery to cause internal chaos and ascend the ranks within your own. FIGHT, TAME AND RIDE LEGENDARY BEASTS
Use the Pacify spell to tame ferocious creatures and amass an army of minions. Tamed companions will gain experience and grow with you as you travel the world and triumph in battle. Siege an enemy fortress with a horde of savage Orcs, ride Horses and Direwolves to quickly traverse the vast landscape, or rain fiery death upon your enemies from the back of a Dragon! BUILD AND FORTIFY EPIC CASTLES
Construct your Dream Castle using hundreds of structural pieces found within a flexible and easy-to-use building editor, or take advantage of the dynamic destruction engine and crush someone else's. Enhance your fortress with magical structures like defensive shields, attack towers, mana pools and respawn stones. Unlock new fortification materials and building features as you level up: with so many materials and pieces to work with the only limit is your imagination. FIND A NEAR LIMITLESS VARIETY OF LOOT
Are you an old, bearded and wise Warlock or are you a young, ambitious and strong-willed Mage? Create your own style with a huge variety of clothing and weapon options. Discover a near limitless variety among these items' stats with Citadel's rich and deep loot generation system; every loot pull is different and ensures that fighting monsters and exploring dungeons is a constantly rewarding and memorable experience. ACHIEVE THE POWER OF FLIGHT
Why walk when you can fly? Use your Wizardly prowess to take to the skies. Enjoy the convenience of a custom-crafted broomstick, tame and mount airborne companions like dragons and giant eagles, or use alchemy to concoct potent elixirs allowing flight without the aid of beast or broom.
