[KR] Developer Interview: Update road-map for 2016


20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_0_intro

 

It’s quite a long time since the last time I do the interview with the developer team. This interview will be for the incoming updates in 2016, and all of information are really promising:)

20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_0_div

The summer is ending soon, we (development team) have already finalised all contents for the first half of 2016 and here we will share the plan for the incoming updates.

20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_1_new_battle_style

 

The new battle style “Gladiator” is out for almost 3 years, now is the time for the new battle style. In opposition with Gladiator which is a sword-based class, the new battle style will be magic-based class. This new class will use Battleset armor like Force Blader and Force Archer.

 

20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_2_new_growth_content
It’s quite a long time since Level 200 have been introduced, many of new contents will be released through the incoming updates, from the mission dungeons to the mission fields, all of them will be boosted with special contents in order to maximising the enjoy of players.

20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_3_new_equipment

Chaos Equipment was introduced in 2015, however due to the high-rate of failure while upgrading with Chaos Core, the Chaos Equipment has been abandoned. This time our development team is working on the new equipment concept, which will help you to clear the high-graded dungeons like Abandoned City and Elite Dungeons faster and smoother:) But don’t be eager so fast, you need to spend time and effort to make them be awesome😉

This time we will “re-use” the appearance of Chaos Equipment and make it as Palladium set, it’s one grade higher than Archridium. The new equipment can be obtained from the Abandoned City.

 

* Please be noted that in Korean Cabal, there is no Palladium set at this moment!

20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_4_dungeon_defense
We can definitely see that dungeon farming is one of the most favourite activities in Cabal. We are going to introduce a brand-new dungeon mode which is “Dungeon Defense” which is really popular these days in different games.

20160810_ep17_incoming_updates_5_other_contents

In additions, we are going to revise other contents which lead to the huge difference between rich and poor players, for example Chaos Core upgrade is one among them. Currently we are struggling for finding out the ways to increase the value and weight of the equipment to continue to address this problem.

In the few next months, you can expect to get a lot of changes in CABAL, stay tuned! Be always with CABAL❤ Love you all, CABALers!
