  BATTLE MAGICIAN MIXES MAGIC AND MELEE IN ELSWORD

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Irvine, Calif., January 16, 2013--Today Kill3rCombo, publisher of the hit game  Elsword, launched a new class for its wildly popular free-to-play action MMORPG. The Battle Magician class is the second part of  Elsword Transformation,  a multi-month campaign that will see numerous changes to the game, including a new job class for every character. 

As a Battle Magician, Aisha dishes out a wide range of punishing close quarter attacks and harnesses pure magical energy to blast her opponents into the stratosphere. While the first new class in Elsword Transformation was a natural evolution for the melee character Elsword, Battle Magician is a striking departure for the ranged caster Aisha, who can now go toe-to-toe in melee rumbles. This makes Aisha more versatile and unpredictable in both PvE and PvP modes.

Battle Magician offers improved melee abilities, but Aisha still retains a powerful arsenal of

magical attacks. While Aisha’s other classes involve mastery over the natural elements or dark forces, Battle Magicians have the rare ability to wield magic in its pure form for devastating energy attacks. Aisha acquires this ability through a magical pendant given by her mentor, as the Battle Magician story unfolds.

In  Elsword,  gamers can choose from six specialized and customizable characters as they explore an immersive world and battle rivals to complete dynamic quests. As players progress through the game, they can evolve their fighting styles by upgrading to new job classes, learn deadly new abilities and master combo attacks. With intuitive and straightforward controls,  Elsword  offers players of all skill levels the chance to experience the thrill of victory in combat either on solo missions or cooperatively in a party of up to four players. For those who welcome a challenge,  Elsword  also delivers action-packed PvP combat.

There's plenty of interesting news and updates coming in 2013 as the exciting " Elsword Transformation" continues in the coming months.  To play  Elsword for free please visit ElswordOnline.com and keep watching the official Facebook page here.  For Elsword information and assets, including a new trailer and screenshots, please visit our press kit here.
