BRIGHT SHADOW GETS HALLOWEEN EXPANSION

Gamania Digital Entertainment Europe is happy to announce that it’s popular free to play MMORPG Bright Shadow will get a long awaited Halloween expansion today. A new Mentor and Apprentice system will be a big help to new players and will reward veterans handsomely for their efforts in leveling up their pupils. Halloween starts early this year, so light your jack o'lantern and read on for more tricks and treats!

NEW CONTENT

The expansion will enlarge the current world by nearly twofold with many new areas and dungeons to explore. During your travels you will be able to fight new monsters such as goblins, vampires and mummies. When lucky you will be able to collect their spirits and ‘imprint’ them on collectible ‘monster’ cards which will enable you to spawn that defeated creature as an ally. Also you will be able to differentiate your character into 8 new classes when you have reached level 40. Furthermore, Bright Shadow will have numerous new quests to complete. Last but not least the level-cap will be raised from 39 to 69!

MENTOR & APPRENTICE SYSTEM

Mentors can help new players getting acquainted in the world of Luciena. When mentors and pupils fight together they exchange familiarity points, which in turn can be used to buy in-game titles and capes that can have a wide range of benefits and/or buffs. When both pupil and mentor are fighting together, both will earn an experience boost. The strenght of this boost depends on the rank of the mentor. The 5 th (highest) rank can give a mentor 30% extra EXP for instance. The mentor attains his ranks through the levelling of his or her pupil. But there is more... mentors get access to exclusive mounts, such as the menacing Elemental Kirin and from rank 3, they will get the ability to teleport directly to their apprentice.

·         Over 50 new areas and dungeons to explore

·         8 new classes (Knight, Demon Slayer, Archer, Gunslinger, Mystic, Illusionist, Taoist, Exorcist)

About Bright Shadow

For many centuries, the magical world of Luciena has been under threath by mysterious dark forces. These evil beings from the Umbra Realm are using ‘Soul Power’ to transform themselves into hideous monsters that seek ultimate domination. The Umbra’s power is fed by destruction, deceit, corruption and death. The once pieceful community of Luciena have been rediscovering the magical properties of Soul Power to defend themselves against the Umbra and their powerful God-like PenUmbra masters.

The Lucians united and diversified, developing tactics, technology and magic to stop the notrocities they have had to endure for so long.The Lucians have had numerous successes against the forces of evil, but soon the Umbra retaliated with merciless force and it was clear that the war had just begun.
