The latest update to Netmarble's anime-inspired mobile RPG Knights Chronicle has expanded the new Awakening mechanic introduced last patch with two new Awoken heroes. Fan-favorite characters Ruby and Esna can now be awoken for increased power.
Players will need to use growth materials and a 6-star version of either hero to Awaken them. The new status will give Ruby and Esna increased stats, a new Awakened Passive Skill, and a new appearance.
The update also adds new story adventures about the ancient Dryan race along with a new Dryan hero, named Tarkus.
In celebration of the update, all players will receive a free 4-star SSR hero ticket and 200 crystals if they log in for seven days.
Other additions to Knights Chronicle with update 2.1 include:
- Apocalypse Level for Nina's Advent Dungeon – Starting today, players can fight against the SSR-grade heroine Nina's special Advent Dungeon with Apocalypse difficulty level and use only half the needed stamina for two weeks.
- Arena Contents Update – The arena's recharge period has been extended from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, which will reduce the players' burden.
- Boss Battle Update – Starting today, players can acquire more abundant rewards from enjoying Boss Battle contents.
Knights Chronicle is available now on iOS and Android in 140 countries.
