February is for many, a month of love and relationships. And who’s to say it’s not? But for video game developers, it’s also a time to celebrate Valentine’s Day in their titles. Riders of Icarus is no different, as the developer revealed the “Hearts Joining Event” that has already started, and will last until February 22nd.
If you go to Hakain’s Crossing you’ll be able to fight and defeat evil wisps that are around town. If you do take one out, you receive a reward in the form of a Bitter Dark Chocolate. You have two options here: You can eat the chocolates to recover HP. Or, you can collect enough and exchange them for a Heart Aura special effect. Which is the effect you can see in the feature image of this page. You must exchange the chocolates with the NPC Lovely Daveen, in Victory Plaza in Hakain’s Crossing.
One more thing, you won’t see the effect if you have particle effects set to “low” in the game. Turn them up to ensure you see them if you get them.
Also in this event, Lovely Daveen will have a daily quest for you called Hearts Joining Attack. If you do this question, you’ll get 20 Bitter Dark Chocolates. Add that up over the course of the event, and you can get a lot of chocolates here.
So, if you’re looking for something festive to do in Riders of Icarus, why not partake in this event? It might just be fun, and rewarding.
