The time has finally come! The Forsaken World Team is pleased to announce our latest expansion,
Forsaken World: Awakening, launching next week on January 20! In the meantime, we thought you might like a quick preview of some of the things coming with our newest expansion!


The Battle Rages On…

After successful counter offensives in the Sea of Oblivion and Eclipse Hollow, we have slowly begun our trek back home, it’s been a hard fought battle and we are very slowly gaining ground. There is a light at the end of the tunnel however, advance scouts report that the Ice River looks to be our best shot at gaining entry back to our homeland, our endeavor has just entered its most dangerous, and critical phase yet…



New Level Cap: 100

With the difficult challenges ahead of us, one thing is for certain, we must become stronger. We can ill afford to lose ground, so we’ve raised the level cap giving everyone the opportunity to grow and help us drive Storm Legion out of Eyrda once and for all!

With the Level cap comes new attributes; Block Rate, Block Strength, Unaspected Mastery, and Unaspected Resistance.

Block Rate affects the chance to perform a block. Block Strength affects how much damage is reduced when performed a block. These attributes are most suitable for Tank classes, and are granted with Defensive Gear.

Unaspected Mastery and Unaspected Resistance are two new attributes that are take traditional non-elemental attacks into account. These attributes cannot be obtained through Mastery Resistance Training, however, some Talents do provide them.



New Vengeance Event: Winter Heights

The Ice River runs through Winter Heights, that river leads home, we must regain control of Winter Heights and take that River! Players need to beat back the Storm Legion forces and help the Lionheart Champions stationed there. Occasionally server-wide announcements will go out asking for players to assist with new areas that have been unlocked or bosses that have spawned.



The first boss of an area appears when enough of the nearby mobs have been killed. Killing the first boss in any area will unlock the quests for that area. The active quest locations where bosses can spawn are marked on the map with crossed swords. Bosses that are currently on the map are indicated by skull icons.

Each active area will offer quests to players and when enough quests have been completed the boss of that area will spawn. Players don’t need to be in a group to receive credit for killing the boss. The first time the final boss of an area is killed a new area on the map will be uncovered.

After Winter Heights has been fully retaken, players may continue to assist in the war efforts and earn more reputation after the map is clear.



New System: Elemental Relics

With the stakes higher than ever, those taking up the mantle to fight back against Storm Legion will find a brand new powerful tool in their arsenal.



Elemental Relics are placed into the new Gear Slot located just above the Anima. This new Gear Slot can grow and evolve. Growth of the gear slot will increase its attributes. In addition, when it evolves to a certain level, a socket will appear.

Elemental Relics give additional attributes. You can feed low level Elemental Relics to your relic and evolve it into a much more powerful Elemental Relic.
Once the Elemental Relic has evolved, you can infuse it with a Relic Spirit to make it even more powerful.

Elemental Relics and Relic Spirits can be obtained by venturing around the world.



New Map: Ever Abyss

Our Scouts have traversed the river and the path was clear… That is until they hit a snag. Storm Legion Mages have placed a very powerful enchantment on the River preventing anyone from passing.
Following the river to its origin, we’ve come across an unsettling discovery. Not all rivers are as they seem.



Ever Abyss, is a trans-dimensional plain linking our land with the underworld. With the help of the Rose Queen, we may embark on a whole new set of Main Story quests and discover new power that will allow us the opportunity to break through the enchantment placed on the river and return us to our home!

This map is for players Level 90 and above.



New God: God of Retribution

In the new Awakening Era, the God of Retribution has befallen our lands.



By participating the map event: Vengeance boss, you will enter a competition set by the God of Retribution. The more bosses you've killed, the more favor you will gain from the God of Retribution.

The God of Retribution will reward its disciples with Reputation of the Vengeance Boss map.

A new Divinity Skill has been added. The skill can be learned when the Divine Reputation of all seven elementals reach to tier 11.


All this and more will be available when Forsaken World: Awakening is released on January 20th.

Press Release - Valve
Five F2P Launch Titles Offering Exclusive Content to Celebrate Launch

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today introduced support for Free to Play (F2P) Games on Steam with the launch of five F2P games.

Available immediately, the launch titles are Spiral Knights, Forsaken Worlds, Champions Online: Free for All, Global Agenda: Free Agent, and Alliance of Valliant Arms (AVA).

Beginning tomorrow (Weds) with Spiral Knights and concluding Sunday with AVA, each of the five launch titles will offer exclusive in-game content to those who try the "F2P game of the day" on Steam. In game transactions in all of the titles will be supported by Steam's micro-transaction backend system that is available to Steamworks partners and currently used in Valve's Team Fortress 2.

"The introduction of Free to Play games is another example of the constant evolution of Steam," said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. "Free to Play games offer new game genres and game experiences for customers, while offering developers and publishers new revenue opportunities and the ability to reach customers in areas of the world where the traditional packaged goods model is less popular than F2P."

Specific details on the F2P games of the day and their exclusive in-game content will be made available in the coming days.

Steam is a leading platform for PC & Mac games and digital entertainment serving over 1,500 games to over 30 million active accounts worldwide. For more information, please visit www.steamgames.com
