A3: Still Alive opens the gates to the Somius region that offers players new territories to explore, new quests to complete, and the first two floors of the new Corrupt Ascelan Ruins dungeon to conquer. Netmarble has also increased the level cap to 140 and added new level 130-140 gear to help players survive in the new region.
Netmarble also takes the auto-play system typically found in mobile MMORPGs with the new offline auto-battle system called Alive Mode. Alive Mode makes use of the game’s AI Battle feature to allow players to continue growing their characters even while they’re offline. The new mode automatically alerts players to major events such as death, full inventory, lack of supporting items, and item achievements so they can easily monitor their character’s progress. A features that’s lacking in most basic auto-play systems.
To mark the opening of the new Somius region, Netmarble has boosted EXP gains in Somius and Metium by 300% from now until February 18th. Players will also be able to take on limited-time missions and a Raid EXP Bonus Time event. All players will also receive a variety of in-game items worth $150 by using the “POWERUPA3” coupon code.
