IRVINE, Calif. – Nov. 21, 2011 – Players will soon have the option to use a brand new character while battling through the thrilling dungeons and formidable bosses of side-scrolling massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Elsword . Launching on November 23, melee combat queen, Eve, will be live in-game to lend her unique brand of fighting to Elsword players.
Rather than relying on old standbys such as swords and bows, Eve breaks the mold by calling upon large and small robotic guardians to fight for her. Eve also stays out of harm’s way by utilizing strong fighting skills and employing sneaky attacks, such as summoning her guardian Oberon to warp in to her defense. Chaining together Eve’s distinctive assaults, players can exercise her ability to convert HP into MP, giving her more frequent access to special features such as invisibility cloaking, for a brief but powerful advantage over opponents. Gamers looking for a head-to-head challenge also can try Eve out in player-versus-player (PvP) gameplay. In addition to her longer-range basic strike capabilities, Eve boasts solid combos and a double-jump skill, which may come in handy during intense one-on-one skirmishes.
“Based on the massive popularity of Eve in overseas iterations of Elsword, it was important to us that North American players also had the chance to experience the game through such an extraordinary character,” said Ben Colayco, CEO of Kill3rCombo. “A rarity in most action MMOs, Eve’s one-of-a-kind style is not only unlike any playable character out there, but is also indicative of future characters and original experiences that will elevate Elsword to the next level.”
In Elsword, players can choose from five specialized and customizable characters, including the newly-added Eve, as they explore immersive maps and battle to complete dynamic quests. As gamers progress through the game, they will have the opportunity to evolve their fighting styles by upgrading to new job classes and watching as their chosen character matures and gains more abilities and combos. With intuitive and straightforward controls, Elsword offers players of all skill levels the chance to defeat enemies and deal damage, either on a solo mission or cooperatively in a party of up to four players. For those who welcome a challenge, Elsword also delivers action-packed player-versus-player (PvP) combat.
