Trion Worlds has released ArcheAge‘s 2.5 update, otherwise known as Bloodsong, which introduces a new dungeon, new PvP arenas, and more.
The update sees the addition of the MMO?s first puzzle-style dungeon, Mistsong Summit, which “immerses players in the world of the forgotten demigoddess Aria, an illusory paradise of beauty and splendor.” The Mistsong Summit is available to level 55 players and features scalable difficulty, with plans to add a specialized Hard Mode soon.
A full rundown of Bloodsong‘s content, courtesy of Trion, can be found below:
- New Mistsong Summit inspired quests – In addition to the three new bosses in the 5-player Mistsong Summit dungeon, 14 all-new quests related to the Mistsong Summit storyline have been added to the game. New armor, Lunafrosts and other items can be obtained by conquering dungeon objectives.
- New Arenas and PvP modes – Two new types of Balanced Arena modes have been added with the Bloodsong update, accessible to any player over level 30: a 1 vs. 1 Sparring Arena and a 3 vs. 3 Skirmish Arena. All participants may choose from one of eight gladiator skill sets and are automatically scaled to level 55 with all buffs and consumables disabled. A winner is declared when two of the three 7 minute matches are won.
- New Rewards and Achievements – Players are now showered with all-new rewards for achieving level 55 through in-game mail. ?Blood, Sweat and Training? daily quests are also now available along with the new arenas, with increased rewards for victories in multiple arena types.
- Other New Additions – 50 all new furniture pieces along with all-new player housing options have been added, along with the ability to use a mount and battle pet simultaneously and a new Moby Drake Fishing Boat.
As well as this, the publisher also announced the Bloodsong Welcome Promotion, which offers new, existing, and returning players a new costume, the Springsong Greeman Suit, and the Wisdom Tree Pet for free.
