Dublin, Ireland – November 1st, 2012 Autumn Wind, the update for Allods Online, launches today, November 1st, on Gala Networks Europe’s English, German, French and Polish servers: Players can experience the new updates with the exciting new Summerhold tank battle, the improved crafting system, and the complete revamp of the popular sport Goblinball.
Summerhold hurtles into Allods Online’s list of daily events with a thrilling new battle of strategy and teamwork and even better rewards. Twelve players must employ four impressive armoured vehicles in taking down a colossal golem, who tramples across the countryside destroying supply chests. The faster players exterminate this mech, the more medals they receive from the remaining chests to buy experience, vanity items, food, and more. Rush headlong against the menace and his army of machines in the Type 59 ST tank, disable the giant’s attacks with the IS-7 Heavy, strike from a distance in the T92 Arty, or scout ahead at blazing speeds with the T50-2 Firefly.
Goblinball, the humorously brutish game, will see a complete revamp: The traditional Orcish sport, now accessible to fans from level 23 and above, pits two teams of four against each other as they race to kick an unfortunate goblin through the opposing team’s goal. Improved abilities allow the players to kick, charge at, and block the doomed little goblin, who now glows according to which team has possession, while goalkeepers get the special ability to return him to the field. Shin kicks are not out of bounds either, and after each ten minute match players will receive fragments that can be turned into currency for buying experience, crafting materials, and more. At ten minutes per match, this is the latest way to experience that Allods Online spirit of competition up to five times a day!
Furthermore, Autumn Wind completes the major crafting overhaul that has started with the previous update: The update combines additional crafting professions with their most compatible gathering professions. Blacksmithing merges with mining, and both leatherworking and tailoring will utilize disassembling. Best of all crafting further improves with an updated interface, tool upgrades, a simplified level progression, and the ability to find patterns throughout the game world – from NPC merchants to deep in the Astral space -- for gear that can be created, then upgraded or used for upgrading.
Take a firsthand look at all these changes and more in the latest preview trailer (http://youtu.be/8EQ5bz0ajmY), or check out the full details in Allods Online’s weekly patch previews on the official website!
