Elsword's Season 2 Is Ushered In With An All-New Swordsman And Ranger
KOG Games, a leading developer and publisher of popular free-to-play action MMORPGs, have announced the launch of the highly anticipated Elsword: Season 2 Update. Only 2 weeks into December, players can already experience some MASSIVE updates to the game throughout the winter season and beyond!
In Elsword, gamers can choose from ten 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, learning deadly new abilities and mastering combo attacks. With intuitive and straightforward controls, Elsword offers players of all skill levels the ability 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.
From the visual appearance of Elsword or Rena as they appear onscreen, to completely revamping their attack animations, balance and feel....a change has occurred. Changes improve controls and the overall player experience when using these two characters, and so much more.
-Exclusive, New English Voices: As Season 2 rolls out, Elsword players will notice one major difference: Elsword and Rena have a whole lot to say... in English! The world renowned Cristina Vee (Bleach, Sword Art Online) and Nicolas Roye (Naruto, Digimon) lend their amazing voices to immerse players and allow them to truly play their Manga, and this is only the beginning. The entire cast of Elsword, NPC's too, are auditioning for their new roles! (hint: stay tuned!)
-Skill trees have been streamlined: Apart from the UI changes presented in the new Skill Tree, skills you can learn are now sorted into the respective skills' level requirement. Players can now choose from two Traits for each active skill. These Traits enhance and refine skills to cater to a player's individual play style
-Skill Designs and Rebalance: Players will notice that some of their old skills now look absolutely brilliant. Rena's arrows, volleys and new skills look epic, and Elsword's attack animations, combos and explosive new casts are gigantic and brilliant. Every improvement made, with the logic in mind, of bringing the lesser used Characters and Jobs up to par with those that seem more powerful. Play who you want vs who you think you should!
-Attack/Command Skill Update: The attack commands have been updated to offer a whole new play style. Some of the tired, less used attack combos have been updated to offer players a whole new element of play, and the UI has been updated to make these combo elements easier to access.
So, Elsword and Rena are being Reborn in true Season 2 fashion so let's test every refinement with a smidge of hardcore PvP... Tournament style! This Friday, some of the biggest names in Elsword PvP will face off! 32 teams of 2 will throw blows using only one Rena and one Elsword per team. The final matches will be Livestreamed on Saturday here: http://www.twitch.tv/elsword.
