 Foundations of Success

In short, this is an opportunity to go big and go home. Enshrouded’s developers are delighted to have an opportunity to construct a truly monumental competition with ElRubius following the successful Early Access Launch of the game. The community and players at large have been instrumental in building up the game since being revealed in May of 2023, and it gives the team great excitement to bring a community-focused event, celebrating the endless possibilities of what Enshrouded players are capable of. Building and terraforming were highlighted as one of the core game pillars back last July while still developing Early Access, and that hasn’t changed - building remains a key mechanic in the game, not only to provide shelter from the dangers in the Embervale, but to allow players plenty of creative freedom to literally shape their worlds.  

By partnering with ElRubius, one of the world’s top content creators (currently #4 of the Top Followed streamers on Twitch with above 20,000 concurrent viewers* who averages 1.3 million views per video on his gaming channel), the creative heights will rise. ElRubius has assembled mountains of unforgettable moments in video and streaming history, breaking records for most viewers in-stream to achieving sky-high viewership on videos covering gameplay for titles such as Minecraft and Fortnite, various challenges, and comedy content, since beginning his career in 2006.
