Dragon Nest is launching with Halloween, its first update
Nexon America’s Dragon Nest
will receive its first post-launch content update next Wednesday, Oct.
26. A new end-game nest encounter will open up, along with a ghoulish
new player versus player (PvP) mode and a variety of Halloween-themed in
game events and items.
Cerberus, a monstrous three-headed canine and guardian of Hell, has been released from the Abyss haunting the Black Mountain Path,
and his presence is drawing adventurers from throughout the Northern
Kingdom as they seek the beast’s massive treasure hoard. Cerberus is
known to drop level 32 epic quality armor and weapons, as well as
materials used to craft the epic Cerberus armor and clothing.
Characters of all levels will also get to enjoy the events of the
season coming to Dragon Nest next week. Players can earn Halloween
coupons by hunting Pumpkin Ducks in dungeons, and then redeem them for a
variety of wearable pumpkin helmets. In the Dragon Vault, players who
want to get into the spirit of the Halloween season will have a wide
variety of new costumes to choose from.
Players who enjoy PvP combat also have a great deal with the addition of Ghoul Mode. Played on the new map Town of Silence,
players will be split into two teams. The Ghoul team will try to kill
and convert all of the untainted players into Ghouls, thereby assuring
victory for the undead horde. The opposing team must try and survive the
ghoulish onslaught, either by defeating all of the ghouls in combat or
holding out long enough for the clock to tick down to zero. Played with a
total of either four, eight, 12 or 16 players, Ghoul Mode offers up an
entirely new type of PvP challenge for players wishing to test their
combat prowess and tactics against their fellow adventurers.
