Elsword players may soon be in for a new batch of players in game as KOG Games has announced that the free-to-play, side scrolling, anime based, fighting game will partner up with Perfect World Entertainment (PWE) and will be made available on PWE's Arc platform.

Mark Hill, Senior Manager of Platform for Perfect World Entertainment said, "We are excited to bring Elsword to Arc as it continues our efforts to deliver a variety of experiences for our players. Our team is committed to bringing quality online entertainment to our players, and we look forward to welcoming such a strong game and community to our platform.”

Elsword will be the first game of this genre to be available on Arc, and is ready to play for anyone with an Arc account. KOG Games is hopeful that this partnership will not only bring more players on top of the already 1 million players Elsword boasts, but feels that the partnership also adds to PWE's portfolio of games available to its players.

If you have an Arc account with PWE and want to check out Elsword, the game is already available through PWE's main Arc site.

Yay, more people! <3

Also, the stamina issue...while that is annoying, you can hunt field bosses. They drop cubes that can contain 3 stamina potions.

Elsword is a okay game to play for a bit but it really not recommended to support that game as you only get limit harder as the level up exp get slower in each stage of the dungeon. The unlimited stamina doesn't help much so that still make it very grindy in it condition plus the game is (Cash advantage) since player can boost themselves with costume and pets in this game. The people on forum can pretty much won't tell you behind the screen of this game and trust me there will be more of these game have a (Stamina system)

The game's a decent enough platformer, though cash shop clothes have stat bonuses on them. The worst of it isn't even that, the game has that old Korean Stamina system that love and adore over there. Do you like playing games till you hit YOUR limit? Too bad! South Korea is a nanny state when it comes to games, and they were kind enough to bring such a system over here as well.

As you do dungeons, you lose stamina, and about 3 hours in (I once had a day where I burned through it in less than 2 hours), you'll be completely out of stamina, and you won't be able to do PvE content for the rest of the day on that character. Avoid it, do not support it...
