Irvine, Calif., November 20, 2013—The hit free-to-play action MMORPGElsword enters a brave new world where players will journey to the mysterious and thriving desert kingdom of Sander. Sander offers a level cap increase, new wind-based gameplay, and a brand new cast of friends and foes.
Welcome to the desert kingdom of Sander: magical winds and merciless foes will lead players to both new stories and untold riches. The townfolk of the wealthy trading center in Sander are desperate to turn back the warring tribes at their doorstep. Elsword and his team rush to their aid, assisted by mystical winds that allow them to soar through the air for a breath-taking view of the sun-drenched lands. Also assisting is a level cap increase to 64 and powerful new weapons and armor. Characters will need this potent gear when they confront the rock-skinned Trock tribe, in Barren Sander, a city consumed by the desert itself. In Garpai Rock, players will ascend a treacherous cliff face to do battle with the harpy tribe in some of the craziest vertical battles yet.
At the urging of Hamel’s water priestess, Elsword’s band journeys to Sander seeking Anduran the priestess of wind. She alone may know the final resting place of the power of the El and its caretaker, the elusive Lady of El. On arrival, however, they find the usually peaceful tribes surrounding Sander have been driven mad by a mysterious force – and worse yet, those tribes have kidnapped the wind priestess. Players must overcome all odds to free the wind priestess and uncover the hidden evil afflicting Sander.
