SHEATH KNIGHT UNLEASHED IN NEW ELSWORD TRANSFORMATION SERIES

Irvine , Calif. ,  December 18, 2012--Today Kill3rCombo, publisher of the hit game Elsword, unleashed a new class on its wildly popular free-to-play MMORPG. The Sheath Knight class forms the first part of Elsword Transformation, a multi-month campaign that will see numerous changes to the game, including a new job class for each character.  By the end of Elsword Transformation, each character will be armed with a new class and a wide range of additional abilities.

Sheath Knight is the first dual-wielding class in Elsword, specializing in lightning-fast melee attacks and relentless combos.  Among the new special abilities for the class is Harsh Chaser, a harpoon that drags ranged enemies into striking distance, and Sword Fall, a flurry of lethal blades Elsword can rain down on opponents. The Sheath Knight’s power stems from a legendary scabbard which Elsword discovers while questing. Choosing to follow the path of the Sheath Knight means entering into a pact with the mystical scabbard that allows you to summon a second sword at will.

As part of the new job classes being introduced in Elsword Transformation, Sheath Knight is the first of several updates that change the way players experience the game. "The new jobs classes of Elsword Transformation are a major addition to Elsword, as they fundamentally reshape PVP strategy while introducing a huge range of new abilities to the PVE experience,” said Won Lee, CEO of Kill3rCombo.  "We can’t wait to see the impact Sheath Knight alone makes to Elsword gameplay.”

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.
