Beijing, China - December 18, 2013 - Changyou
(NASDAQ: CYOU), would like to announced that the highly anticipated
version 8.6 for
Odin Quest is launching today. Recently Changyou
received exclusive operating right and started to make changes to
the one of most popular web games, promising a much better gaming
experience! Gamebox has started to fulfill those promises with the
launch of Version 8.6.
Two new systems change the balance!
As we have mentioned in the previous news, Odin Quest will have
two new systems-- Divination system and Dragon Soul system.
Divination system is for players to get materials through a new
way. Mysterious as it is the return is amazing, giving players the
rare items that they have been waiting for in Odin Quest! The only
thing players have to do is consume gold leaves which becomes a
lottery. This will give players a chance to get their ideal
materials that can be used to enhance equipment.
The Dragon Soul system is for players to increase their
attributes! Worrying about the low attributes? Infuriated about
difficulties to level up? Now, this system can solve the problems
once and for all!
Gamebox has mentioned many new instances in Version 8.6. The
most important ones are Oracle War, Palace Feast and New Year
Oracle War is for players of level 80 and above. When players
complete this instance they will have a chance to get some items
and upgrade their equipment to level 102.
Palace Feast, as its name shows, is like a feast in the ancient
palace. The mission is to protect various dishes from thieves.
Interesting, isn't it? But it's more than that, players will also
get rewards after passing the instance, they can be used to enhance
New Year envoy is a special instance that can be entered at some
specific time. Events will be different every week.
Apart from that, the cross server boss fights also have been
changed. Login to the game and see if you have what it takes to
defeat the bosses in Odin Quest.
Gamebox has decided to unveil the features one by one. The new
version will give players exactly what they need to have fun and
enjoy this MMORPG.
