Pandora Saga: Age of Discord -- Astian Battle Arena and New Level Cap Announced

Open Beta for Largest Update Invites World’s Strongest Adventurers to 48-player Brawl for Fortune and Fame

Torrance, Calif., (October 25, 2013) – Marvelous USA, the US-based publishing operation of leading Japanese publisher MarvelousAQL, today announced first details for the largest update yet for the popular fantasy MMO, Pandora Saga: Age of Discord (formerly Pandora Saga: Weapons of Balance). Launching today in Open Beta, Pandora Saga: Age of Discord offers players more exciting features and polish with a commitment from Marvelous USA to provide regular and significant content updates to better serve its fast growing community of fans.

Headlining the assortment of new features in this content update is the introduction of the Astian Battle Arena. With 48-player melees pitting the world’s strongest adventurers against one another in a brutal fight to the death, the Astian Battle Arena promises fortune and fame for those brave enough to answer the call to arms.

“We are excited to announce plans to ramp up efforts to bring more exciting new content to the upcoming Open Beta for Pandora Saga: Age of Discord players,” says Shinichi Suzuki, Marvelous USA President and CEO. “With the Astian Battle Arena, our first round of updates will focus on new content for PvP fans. But we have much more in store for players who enjoy other solo, group, Nation battle, and PvE content. We can’t wait to tell you more soon.”

Set in a world beset by war and conflict following the Great Catastrophe, Pandora Saga: Age of Discord finds players pledging their allegiance to one of three nations vying for power and control:  The Kingdom of St. Pfelstein, The Latugan Empire, and the Varik Confederation. Powerful enemies and allies await those who seek to bring peace and balance to the fractured world.

Additional new features which complement the launch of the Astian Battle Arena include a new level 60 cap for players. The rise in the maximum player level from 55-60 will be accompanied with new high-level skills and abilities to aid them in battle. Players can also look forward to significant improvements to tooltips and UI to better guide both new and veteran players through character creation and quests in their adventures. Also included will be the all-new Ersatz Slot for visual character customization, a Reconstruction option that allows for customized equipment modifications, and an all-new Rayon Guerre war for players to partake in.
