will accompany the launch of the fourth campaign, "Council Apocalypse," which includes four new missions and new character Valeria.

with the launch of the "Council Apocalypse" campaign on August 23rd. In the meantime, there have been some monetization changes in Raiders
. The free Mission of the Week in Raiders
