The first of these new features is a new dungeon for players to explore which will come with its own batch of monsters for the payer to tackle.

The second addition is an attribute-altering accessory that can be obtained under certain conditions (these conditions are not currently known). This accessory will allow the player to switch the party member’s attack attributes to cutting, batting, or shooting. The purpose if this is to provide players the chance to optimize their team whilst keeping a degree of balance.

The final feature is the ability to alter the number of active party members to fit the individual gamer’s preferences, whether they prefer to travel alone, or with a band of adventurers. That being said, the party leader, Adol, must always remain active.

Screenshots of the new features can be seen below:
