Scarlet Blade Is Being Shut Down
Just three years after the it launched, Scarlet Blade -- the game known for its scantly clad, all-female playable characters -- is shutting down. According to the announcement, the past year has been pretty hard on the team (and players); with things like server instabilities and a lack of content updates. There had also been a cutback on resources in order to save money.
The bulk of the game's most recent problems are the result of a technical issue that stopped a content update and required the game to be rolled back. The dev team still has yet to pin down the problem.
As a result of these issues, the team has decided to put the game to rest on March 31. To make things up to those who are still playing the game, Aeria Games is offering a few things. First, all players' payments in the game between January 1 and March 31 will be refunded to their Aeria Games account to be used in other games. This refund will take place after April 4.
While the game is still up, players can expect a 500% bonus on drop and XP gain. All mall items will be discounted to 1AP starting February 29.
Finally, the team will be offering players a Veteran Item Package that will help them get started in one of Aeria Games' other MMOs: Echo of Soul. The package will include things like:
- Level 35 Jump Item - reach level 35 in just one mouse click!
- Two powerful Jewel sets (+8 Dull and +5 Lucid jewels)
- One consumable package to boost your character once more
- One awesome Pirate costume, one furious Goldskin Tyrannus mount and a fluffy Chestnut Lemur pet
