Sunnyvale, California – September 15, 2011 The next update for gPotato’s AAA MMORPG Allods Online will arrive this fall in both North America and Europe. Set to launch in October, the update will smooth out the leveling curve for new players and unravel further mysteries of the Allods universe.
The new content delves into the machinations of the Great Mage Tep, whose twisted experiments into immortality transformed a once vibrant and noble people into the withered mechanical constructs known as the Arisen. Now Tep’s oldest stronghold, long hidden in the vast expanse of the Astral, will be dragged into the light for the bravest heroes to explore.
Players hoping to conquer Tep’s mysteries can train for the challenge in the Kingdom of Elements, a new zone filled with aggressive elemental spirits that are more dangerous than anything the warriors of Sarnaut have ever faced. Additionally, they can sharpen their skills at the Arena of Death, now open for PvP battles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and upgraded with a new matchmaking system. Those who have mastered the Astral can now plunge their loot into customizing the interior of their own Astral ship, which can be decorated with everything from paintings to full suites of furniture.
The battle for the world’s future has intensified and Sarnaut needs more warriors to join the fight. New players will find Allods Online a more engaging experience thanks to extensive re-balancing of the content for levels 1-25. The fatigue system has been removed and bonus EXP has been added for killing monsters, making battles no less dangerous but much more rewarding. The addition of 2 new classes also gives players up to 30 character types to choose from as their journey into Sarnaut begins.
