In late August, we told you about Skyforge’s Alien Invasions. The first Alien Invasion by the plantlike Phytonides was a success with players grouping together to repel the threat and protect Aelion. Today, My.com has announced that the Mechanoids, Skyforge’s next Alien Invasion, have begun touching down across the world in the free to play MMORPG.
Although Mechanoids have been used throughout Aelion for technological advancement, “they are not our allies and the valuable data their hollow metal shells provide comes at a cost.” Defeat is not an option and the safety of Aelion along with the information that can be gathered from studying the Mechanoids is paramount.
The Mechanoid Invasion is the first Invasion following the release of Aelion’s Call which introduced the features of Invasion Atlases and Operations. During an active invasion all players are able to participate in adventures with representatives of that invading army. Once complete, players will earn tokens which will help the player to gain Sparks for that faction’s Atlus. This provides rewards such as bonuses when fighting members of that force, some stat improvements, and most importantly, new Symbols.
Another feature of this Invasion is Operations. “Upon receiving Tokens, you will be placed into an Operation group which consists of up to 40 other players. After this happens, all information regarding your current Operation can be accessed on the Aelinet in game or online through your browser.” With this feature, you work together to complete the Operation’s goal as well as your personal assignment. However, players are also in a competition with each other to lead with the most tokens for the greatest rewards. Each day the Operation will move to the next tier with only the most elite players from the previous tier moving on for a chance at even greater rewards.
Aelion calls to its immortal protectors once again, check out the website for all the details.
