In this post we bring you content that will remind you what this new update brings. You have the Q&A section in the lower part of page, where your questions answered by experts from Gameloft.
The Under Realm is a region of shadow and deceit, where secrets are better left unsaid and what little hope that remains lingers like a flickering candle on the verge of going out. The ruthless Dark Elves wage war to reassert their dominance against a new enemy, the Frostlings. Meanwhile, the combatants are oblivious to the real dangers lurking in the darkness — a supernatural plague that turns its victims into mindless fiends. Only the peaceful Mendels heed the warning signs, but their soft, stuttering voices are lost in the din of battle. Thus with each passing day, the fate of the Under Realm grows bleaker; the shadows lengthen, the chill grows colder, and the flame threatens to gutter out.
At the end of the tunnel lies the gleaming white of Frostlund, where the sun reflects a blinding light across the tundra and massive ice floes drift through the frigid waters surrounding the vast glacier. Despite the challenges, the hardy Frostlings call this land home. But now, the place they call home is being threatened.
Ripped from planes unknown, demonic invaders beset the land in a fury of fire and steel. The Frostling tribes, unprepared and isolated, must flee before them into the Under Realm; all the while, a desperate defense tries to halt the tide, ignorant of the importance of their fight. All of Haradon hangs in the balance as an ancient magic stirs and conflict shatters the land, unearthing the very roots of the world. Hidden beneath the ice and across the frozen wasteland are the keys to reforging the world, or rending it asunder. Keys which are within the demons’ grasp…

Day 4 Q&A
Q1: Is there gonna be more bag/storage spaces?

Q3: Are we going to see any kind of balancing in PvP between classes and specs? If so, could you go a bit into details for the theorycrafting fans out there?
A: In the coming version all classes are going to experience changes ( Please check your mailbox then! Thank you. ), which gives us brand new pvp situations. We hope that characters differently “builds” enter arenas, and that different combat skills are tried. So let’s find out which class will stand a greater chance against others, and it’s all up to you!
Q4: Release date?
A: We are not giving out release dates. One would’ve gotten used to this fact after years of not giving out release dates.
Q5: Is T1/T2 going to become obsolete?
A:T1/T2 are still usable within the old regions, and same for the souls, still could be used to exchange previous gear. So not 100% useless. However, player does need to loot/aim for higher level/new equipment if they are going to explore the new regions.
