ELSWORD SAVES THE BEST FOR LAST: INTRODUCING THE FIRST NEW CHARACTER IN 2013
New Character Ara Haan Pierces Her Way Into Elsword In The Most Celebrated Release Of The Year
Irvine, Calif., December 18, 2013—The hit free-to-play action MMORPG, Elsword, today introduces its first new character in more than a year, the spear wielding martial artist, Ara Haan. In the most celebrated content update of the year, players can now take on the role of Ara Haan, the seventh playable character in Elsword, beginning today.
“We are thrilled at the level of excitement Elsword fans have shown with the anticipation of Ara Haan’s arrival,” Eugene Kim, CEO of KOG Games. “Since her debut in Korea, Elsword players have been clamoring for more news on when she will be arriving and we are excited to finally deliver.”
Ara Haan, a spear-wielding martial artist, comes to the world of Elsword with an all-new fighting style that differs from any other current characters. Inspired by ancient warriors of the Far East and a bevy of martial arts movies, both traditional and a little quirky, her extremely quick and powerful skill set brings a whole new dimension to the Elsword world.
Ara’s new combat style brings a completely new dynamic to Solo, Co-Op and Player vs. Player gameplay. As a lightning fast, close-quarter combo master, Ara can chain together any number of combat skills to offer a punishing array of huge combos, effects and interrupts.
With the help of a mystical nine-tailed fox, Ara barely escapes when a demonic onslaught assaults her village, but the village, as well as her family perishes. The mysterious fox, Eun agrees to help Ara solve the mystery of the demon horde attack in exchange for Ara’s help in unlocking the magic pin that has trapped Eun’s very essence for centuries. Ara accepts, and begins unraveling an epic storyline all her own.
For a limited time, players that complete the new Ara specific quests will receive great Ara themed prizes. To play Elsword for free please visit ElswordOnline.com and keep watching the official Facebook page here. For more Elsword information and assets please visit our press kit here.
