It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when online games all get spiffy holiday re-skins for a few weeks. Looking to get in on the action, AdventureQuest 3D has blanketed Battleon in snow and unleashed some undead ice monsters. It’s a fitting tribute to celebrate the one year anniversary of AdventureQuest 3D hitting 100% of its funding goal on Kickstarter.
MMORPG’s have a bit of stigma attached to them on crowdfunding platforms. Many backers consider them too massive and ambitious for a small dev team to tackle. Artix Entertainment managed to overcome this obstacle and raise $368,503 to take their 2D Flash game to the next level.
After pulling off a successful Halloween event with their Mogloween, Artix teased a few ice-themed maps on their Twitter. Now a Kickstarter update has dropped, with full details of all the seasonal goodies players can expect.
Fighting In A Winter Wonderland
Battleon may have the snow, but the real adventure takes place in the Frost Labyrinth. Players gain access by either speaking with Blizzy, the frost moglin, or using the teleporter crystal in town. Here players are introduced to the mighty Yettun as they complete quests and craft the new seasonal gear.
The winter-themed additions are cute, but Artix has also released a few features that backers have been waiting on. The ability to compare items and changes to the questing system are gifts that will keep on giving long after the event has ended. Players also get their first look at the a new dungeon that automatically scales them to the correct level when they enter. Now high and low level players can finally adventure together.
Looking forward, AdventureQuest 3D is testing a new bank system that should be ready early in the new year. This update will be followed by cosmetic/costume slots and eventually the new Dragons of Ashfall Saga. AdventureQuest 3D is available for PC and mobile platforms.
