Mabinogi is surely one of the most elaborate MMORPG sandboxes that you’re likely to have never played, and it almost slipped under our radar — but not quite! Last week, Nexon released a major update for the twee South Korean import, which according to the studio is its first major story-based update since December 2014.
“The Gate of Sanctuary continues Mabinogi’s tale from Generation 19: The Divine Knights as the Alban Knights attempt to quell the rise of new undead monstrosities throughout Erinn. Diehard fans of the PC title can rejoice and dive back into the world of Erinn as they embark on hours of new main story quests and well as new regions to scout. Additionally, the update comes loaded with a host of new features and upgraded systems, such as the introduction of Mabinogi’s new Squire training system – Squires of Baltane – in which players can take on the role of Commanders and mentor new soldiers on their journey to Knighthood. With this new system, commanders can now send Squires on solo missions, to develop their Squire’s abilities, cultivate commander abilities as Squires mature and help individual Squires overcome personal obstacles as they move forward on their path to Knighthood.”
Nexon has pubbed a trailer for the Gate of Sanctuary storyline as well as an overview video for all the content coming in the patch; watch both below.
