ELSWORD ENDEARS WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND EVENTS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY AND LUNAR NEW YEAR

Irvine , Calif. ,  February 06, 2013--Today Kill3rCombo, publisher of the hit free-to-play action MMORPG Elsword, announced a bouquet of exciting events to celebrate both Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year.  With both holidays just a mere four days apart, Elsword is eager to provide its community with these special experiences for the season. 

Love is in the air at Elsword, and to encourage players to share experiences together, the game will host a cool Valentine’s Day themed challenge.  Each of the six Elsword characters has been paired up with another character. When players wear a special title and team up to run dungeons with their paired character, they can earn special items.   Players will need to stay tuned to find out which characters have been paired together.  Cupid will also make random appearances in the dungeons.  As Cupid drops in, it will cause all the enemies in the level to become smitten and easy to conquer.   While celebrating Valentine’s Day, it will be easier for players to level up quickly by beating the hardest dungeons.  Kill3rCombo is also holding a special event where players can win in-game dates with their favorite GMs.  While on their special date, the GMs will accompany players on dungeon runs or just stroll around town chatting. 

Elsword will also celebrate the start of a New Year with Lunar New Year 2013 events and items.  Officially celebrated on February 10, 2013, Lunar New Year in Elsword means a variety of impressive and rare items are up for grabs.  Players will be able to find special themed items in the dungeons such as dumplings and fireworks, which they can use to make short work of their enemies.   Lunar New Year is all about family, and players can celebrate the importance of family by exploring dungeons together.  By exploring together, they will receive special cubes containing incredibly rare items.   

In  Elsword,  gamers can choose from six specialized and customizable characters as they explore an immersive world and battle rivals to complete dynamic quests. As players progress through the game, they can evolve their fighting styles by upgrading to new job classes, learn deadly new abilities and master combo attacks. With intuitive and straightforward controls,  Elsword  offers players of all skill levels the chance to experience the thrill of victory in combat either on solo missions or cooperatively in a party of up to four players. For those who welcome a challenge,  Elsword  also delivers action-packed PvP combat.
