First expansion to the popular mobile Action MMORPG welcomes the gritty dual-wielding Pirate class
HONG KONG – April 5, 2012 – Conquer Online, one of the longest-running, free-to-play online PC games, made its formal debut as a full-featured Action MMORPG on iPad in December of 2011 to great fanfare, breaking into the Top 10 RPGs category in its first week. The game’s iPad community has already surpassed 200,000 fans and continues to grow. Today, NetDragon is introducing the first expansion, Invasion of Pirates, to the Chinese fantasy universe. In the new expansion, players will have access to explosive new skills with the newly added Pirate class. An all-new video has been released to showcase the Pirate class in action.
To celebrate the launch, NetDragon is also giving away some real-life loot, including brand new iPads. Players who discover the hidden in-game iPad item (hint: hack-‘n-slashers, apply skills here!) will be able to turn it in for the newest generation of iPad for free!
The new Pirate class comes dressed for battle wielding both rapiers and pistols. Their abilities all channel power and precision alongside the most fiery, action-packed combat in the game. Pirates have the advantage of being able to down any foe—on land or sea. With a little strategy and pirate know-how, the new class can easily become the most deadly in PvP battles.
