Crusaders of Light MMORPG Introduces New Paladin Class in Major Content Update, Available Now

NetEase Games rolls out robust update featuring new Paladin class, and updated character progression and questing systems

BRISBANE, Calif. – Oct. 25, 2017 – NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES) today announced “Arrival of the Paladin” — a major content update for its mobile MMORPG, Crusaders of Light, available as a free-to-play download on the App Store, Google Play, and Facebook Gameroom for PC. The update introduces players to the new Paladin class — holy warriors armed with longswords and blessed with deadly power who work on the frontlines of battle, healing their teammates while taking the brunt of their enemies’ attacks.

The Paladin joins the game’s existing class options – the Ranger, Warrior, and Mystic – each with its own unique skills, paths and runes that allow players to choose the best toolkit for the job at hand. At Level 20, Paladins can choose one of three different paths – the Templar, the Paladin of Dawn and the Paladin of Daylight – to continue their fight for the fallen and protect their allies at all costs.

The update also introduces two new Heroic bosses, a new system that offers a whole new means of progressing your character’s power, and a reworked questing system that allows for more open world exploration. This rollout represents the biggest content update to date for players of Crusaders of Light, the most authentic, full-fledged MMORPG experience available on mobile.

Crusaders of Light features over 300 hours of available gameplay, epic raids of up to 40 players, and PvP-ranked arena battles of up to 40v40. With PC-integration via Facebook Gameroom, players can seamlessly switch back and forth between their home computer and mobile device or tablet using their same character.
