Bright Shadow Online Gets a Halloween Expansion Today

on October 4, 2011 2:45 PM

Normally MMORPGs get only a little sweet (or scary) seasonal event on Halloween, Gamania went quite a bit further this year, releasing a whole content-filled themed expansion on the free to play MMO Bright Shadow Online.

The expansion includes several new zones that almost double the explorable area of the world, new quests and new monsters to populate the new regions. Those monsters will occasionally drop their spirits that can be imprinted on monster cards that will turn them into personal pets. The level cap of the game will also be  raised from 39 to 69. 

The expansion also introduces the mentor system, allowing mentors and pupils to gain affinity points that will then be spent to buy in game titles and capes. They will also benefit from an experience boost when fighting together. Finally, mentors will gain access to exclusive mounts like the Elemental Kirin.

Last but not least, when reaching level 40 players will be able to specialize their characters in eight new advanced classes: Knight, Demon Slayer, Archer, Gunslinger, Mystic, Illusionist, Taoist and Exorcist.

Here’s a full list of the new features:

  • Over 50 new areas and dungeons to explore
  • 8 new classes (Knight, Demon Slayer, Archer, Gunslinger, Mystic, Illusionist, Taoist, Exorcist)
  • Raised level cap (from 39 to 69)
  • Over 200 new monster cards to collect
  • 1000+ new quests to complete
  • Mentor & Apprentice System
  • 50+ elemental titles and capes to collect

Gamania also released a new trailer related to the expansion and a nice batch of screenshots, renders and artwork that you can see below.
