WAKFU, the free to play, tactical MMORPG from Ankama, is changing things up on players this week by revamping the island of Kelba. The famous island’s facelift not only adds a new visual appeal for players, but also opens up a deluge of content for players level 65 and higher. This redesign also brings the island more in line with how it is represented in the anime version of the game’s world shown currently on Netflix.
On Senior Jenry Hones’s advice, adventurers are invited to look for a magic map, in order to locate new magic artifacts. In the course of an adventure full of new developments, players of level 65 (or more) will meet Miranda and Kabrok, the famous and well-liked couple of the WAKFU TV series. Players’ wanderings will also lead them to cross the path of Kelba’s merchant Hadibal Toot (seen in episode 3 of the first season of the series).
The new adventure starts with part one which became available today and part 2 will launch on April 2nd.
I have kind of a love/hate thing going on with WAKFU. I love the game and technically it is free to play, but there are clear benefits to paying the subscription fee and that makes the free to play aspect feel almost more like a trial for me in many ways. What about you?
