Aika Online Announces Epic III: Descent

Sunnyvale, Calif. – May 23, 2012 Soon the long exile will end and the battle for human life will begin. At last, the warriors of Aika Online will descend to the planet and take on the demons who forced them to flee their homes long ago. The battle begins with the first chapter of Epic III: Descent, which will be released on June 14.  Prepare for the trials ahead in the Aitan Training Grounds, hone your skills in the revamped Aitan Arena, and destroy the enemy with an increased level cap of 85!

The Caelium Cores have failed and Aika’s sky islands are falling toward the demon-infested lands below. Soon the five rival nations must find a way to fight off human foes and demon enemies at the same time. Aitan will find the mainland riddled with daunting opponents, but an increased level cap of 85 lets them rise to the challenge! Face down the toughest enemies using entirely new skills and win the latest, most powerful armor for each class from the new Vanguard Set, the first AA Rank PvP armor set with increased stats stronger than any other in game.

Warriors can hone their skills for the tough battles ahead in the newly opened Aitan Training Ground, which gives them a chance to train their PvP and monster-battling skills by dodging traps and destroying hordes of monsters.  Aitan levels 1 through 70 who work together to conquer this daily event will receive bountiful experience and life-saving starter kits.

All players can sharpen their skills even further in the improved Aitan Arena! This hectic team vs team match up promises even more chances to compete daily. Confront comrades and rivals alike in a round of sudden death PvP among hundreds of participants to win new titles and even bigger rewards than before. 

An epic conflict awaits, and it’s up to warriors of Aika to reclaim their home world after hundreds of years in exile. Uncover more details and take command of the fight at the brand new site for Aika Online: Epic III: Descent!
