Karlsruhe, 19/5/2016 – South Korean development studio KOG and Gameforge are introducing the continent of Elysion in the latest update to Anime side-scroller Elsword. New quests and rewards, varied fields and dungeons as well as the increased level cap to 85 all offer sustained entertainment for adventurers.
On to new shores – first steps into new region Elysion
The current patch extends the popular Anime MMORPG to include the continent of Elysion, in which the town of Atlas can be found. Friendly NPCs such as station administrator ‘Yuno’, with his own homemade micro Nasod ‘Nono’ offer new items for sale as well as their services and a series of quests.
Special in-game events set to take place in the first weeks after the update help to introduce the NPCs, the town of Atlas and the whole region of Elysion. As the dangers outside the safety of the station are not to be underestimated, the heroes can now reach a new upper level limit of 85 in this update, to help them be equal to the challenges that lie ahead.
Additionally, the adventurers will find the picturesque-styled field ‘Shaiflone Pond’ around Atlas. Here heroes will come into contact with new monster types for the first time and will have to equip themselves aptly for the fight in two new dungeons ‘Decion Mine’ and ‘Atlas City’. The former is the easier of the two, yet still demands an item level of at least 70 to 72. The mad scientist ‘Deca’ is already waiting for brave adventurers on his mechanical throne, whilst in the latter adventure there’s a Nasod with the markings ‘Surveillant Code A’ waiting, who operates the security system for ‘Atlas City’.
To be continued…
The second part of the update is coming soon. In this, players can look forward to a further field, ‘Outskirts’, and another dungeon, ‘Elysion Tower’. Heroes and groups that enter the tower will encounter difficult and challenging monsters, who however also offer the mightiest loot in Elsword. The task there is to defeat ‘Code Maya’ on normal or, at ‘Hard’ and ‘Expert’ difficulties, to defeat ‘High Templar Code A’. Fun-filled in-game events top off the upcoming update and extend the invitation to join in.
The MMO Elsword impresses with its unique mix of 2D side-scrolling and role-play in an anime style. This two gameplay traditions are fused together in Elsword to form a unique and dynamic gaming experience. The exciting story centres around the mythical Eldrit stone, from which the continent of Elios draws its energy. Eight masters protect it; creatures such as the machine-like Nasod even derive their life-force from it. One day, the stone shattered and the pieces were strewn across the entire world. Now the task of uniting the stone once more and ensuring the survival of Elios lies in the hands of the players. In over 35 dungeons, the players must fight their way through an exciting world full of action, magic and adventure. Elsword is already wowing European players in Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Poland.
