Webzen has announced the first ever update for its free-to-play fantasy MMO ASTA. The update, which follows the open beta launch, will introduce a new team arena map titled, “Ora Fortress Underground.” It will also add a new “Very Hard” difficulty mode for the already existing dungeons: “Throne of Gladiator” in the Four Valley’s region and “Water God’s Oracle” in the Muk Plateau region, as well as an extra difficulty mode for the current 10-man raid.
The new difficulty mode will introduce harder bosses and disallow revival during combat — with the exception of the use of the Healer’s “Revive” Skill. Players can enter once a day for free, but will need to purchase Soul Stones for subsequent entries.
Full details and release notes can be found on the ASTA site.
