Conquest Steppes of Infinity
The new conquest map in the Steppes of Infinity has arrived! It features all-new objectives and opportunities: will you battle to control the forts of Brevo and Antapo, or will you brave a gauntlet of foes to ferry charges between them?All Conquest matches will take place at the Steppes of Infinity for a time to give everyone a chance to try out the new map. After a brief introductory period, we’ll start alternating Conquests between the Steppes of Infinity and Stillmoor.
