Dragon Nest Prepares for Official Launch
Following a highly successful open beta test, Nexon America’s Dragon Nest will officially launch next Wednesday, Sept. 28. As part of the launch, Nexon will release an expansive content update for the action MMORPG, which includes a new central town, danger-filled dungeons and an increased level cap.
Dragon Nest follows the story of a band of adventurers as they battle the corrupt dragons and their followers in order to save Verathea, the once pure and beautiful world created by the goddess Althea. Players enter this world, join their friends, and battle hordes of evil creatures and boss monsters bent on destroying Verathea.
Dragon Nest’s transition from open beta testing into launch will be completely seamless, so players will retain all of the characters, items and other enhancements they’ve made since the beginning of beta testing.
New and veteran Dragon Nest players alike will get to experience more than 500 new quests and an increased level cap of 32. Each specialization will have six to eight new skills to master, such as: the Sharpshooter’s Rain of Arrows, the Mystic’s Gravity Crush, the Mercenary’s Whirlwind, the Paladin’s Divine Punishment and other powerful new skills.
The world of Dragon Nest grows even larger with the addition of Saint’s Haven, a sprawling new city filled with colorful characters. In addition to the quests that advance the main storyline, new daily quests will be available that players can complete for epic quality rewards.
Ten new dungeons will open up with Dragon Nest’s launch next week, allowing players the opportunity to put their newfound skills into action. For the achievement junkies, players can earn more than 250 new achievements stemming from the new dungeons and quests.
For fans of Dragon Nest’s PvP game modes, a new season of PvP ladder shop gear will be available for max level players to earn. Faction vendors will also make an appearance for the first time, offering players who have earned high standing among the world’s various factions the chance to earn unique items and discounts.
Players will also be able to enjoy a series of celebratory in-game events starting next Wednesday, September 28th. Bonus empowerment points, which award additional EXP, cash item giveaways and more are planned to celebrate the launch.
