Elsword Prepares to Launch New Pet System
Starting tomorrow, Elsword players will have the help of an ally as they make their way through the formidable dungeons and cutthroat side-scrolling bosses of Elsword, the massively multi-player online action game. The all-new pet system will make its debut tomorrow, Oct. 5th, giving players the opportunity to traverse the anime-themed world with new companions at their side. OnRPG has exclusive access to a new trailer showcasing these new pets in action.
The pet system introduces gamers to the Pocket Phoru and Ancient Phoru, with Tree Knight and additional pets coming soon. Upon reaching level ten, players will have the opportunity to utilize their pet of choice to help them in quests. Though they may look cute and cuddly, pets actually have powerful attacks and buff skills that will prove integral to dungeon crawls. Pets also are maturing creatures with evolving personalities, and require care from their masters to maintain peak performance. They grow up as they are fed, progressing from infant to teen to adult, gaining stronger attacks and prowess with every change. How players treat their pet also will shape its personality, changing the range of combat options they can perform.
“Introducing pets to Elsword adds another dimension to the game and allows players to become fully immersed in the comic book style world,” said Ben Colayco, CEO of Kill3rCombo. “By echoing character evolution and growth within the pet system, we wanted to reinforce that Elsword offers a unique and dynamic environment to players, while at the same time maintaining the key differentiators that set us apart, such as maturation of characters.”
In Elsword, players can currently choose from four specialized and customizable characters as they explore immersive maps and battle to complete dynamic quests. As gamers progress through the game, they will have the opportunity to evolve their fighting styles by upgrading to new job classes and watching as their chosen character matures and gains more abilities and combos. With intuitive and straightforward controls, Elsword offers players of all skill levels the chance to defeat enemies and deal damage, 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.
