The most popular MMORPG of recent times, World of Kings, has just received its first big update, and with it, there have been many interesting changes. This new patch pertains to version 2.0 and is called “Era of Nightbornes” since it adds a new race to the playable roster; the eponymous Nightborne.
For those who are yet unfamiliar, World of Kings is an ambitious MMORPG, designed to resemble one of the most popular games of the genre, World of Warcraft. Much of the aesthetic design and gameplay of this title is identical to the popular PC MMORPG, including the size of some of its zones, which are massive. World of Kings has a lot to offer, especially when you consider that it’s a free mobile game. Take a look at our review if you want to learn more about this title.
World of Kings released not too long ago, but this doesn’t mean the developers are resting without doing anything. In fact, the most recent patch brought tons of changes to the classes, as well as numerous new features to the game. In this article, we’re going to explore the most important additions that patch 2.0: Era of Nightborne brings to World of Kings, starting with the most significant:
Introducing the New Race: The Nightborne
It’s always exciting whenever a new race is added to a popular MMORPG. Even in games like World of Kings where there are no class restrictions and all races play similarly, it’s very exciting to run around with one of these new characters. In this case, the Nightborne are very impressive. From the moment you first catch them on screen, they look very imposing.
Luckily, if you liked World of Warcraft in its beginnings, you’ll definitely love the path World of Kings is taking. In terms of appearances, the Nightborne resemble the Draenei, which is one of the first races added to WoW in their first expansion, The Burning Crusade. In fact, the Nightborne are like a mix between Draenei and Blood Elves.
Along with the new race, we can also find a new tutorial zone, which we have to say is one of the most impressive areas we’ve seen in this game. The snow, ruined buildings, trees in the distance, and dragon bones poking from the ground give this place an air reminiscent of WoW’s Dragonblight zone. However, as is the case with all the other races, the story missions eventually take you to the main hub from which you’ll continue your adventures.
New Zones and Increased Level Cap
The other big chunk of content in World of Kings corresponds to the release of two new zones: Darkclaw Mountains, and Black Tides. These places are ideal for those who are already at level 60 since they’re packed full of new challenges and missions to help players reach level 70, the new level cap.
Furthermore, those who have completed the main story to this point will find additional story missions in the new zones. Players will also find plenty of exploration content and books, as well as the achievements corresponding to the exploits in these areas.
Those who want to play with Nightborne, but don’t want to go through all the story again, will be able to use the new Race Transfer feature. To unlock this function, you’ll first have to complete the level 60 Awakening quest, and then visit the Master Aesthetician to change your race.
New Game Modes
New content is not the only thing that this patch brings. After updating, you’ll find many new game modes, which are mostly oriented towards PvP play.
The new “Duel: Warriors” feature allows you to challenge other players to formal 1v1 battles. Furthermore, there’s a new “Squad PvP” mode that allows you to create groups of 2, 3, and 5 players and engage other groups in 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5 battles, respectively. Once again, those who are familiar with World of Warcraft will find these features very identical since they’re basically the same formats as the Arena battles in the popular MMORPG. World of Kings is borrowing a lot from the big titles in the genre, but we’re not complaining since these features are very well developed and implemented perfectly.
New Level 60 Boost Pack
The bad part about this new content is that players will need to advance considerably before being able to play it. Both the new zone as well as the PvP content require a high level before accessing them. In the case of the zones, you have to be level 60, which was the previous level cap before this patch. In this sense, you’ll have to play a lot if you want to try the new content.
Luckily, this new patch also brought the Level 60 Boosters, which allow you to skip the entire story and instantly reach level 60. These packs will be made available three weeks after patch launch, which means that you’ll be able to buy them on the shop from around September 23. If you’d like to start with the new race, but don’t want to go through all the hassle of leveling up and doing the story missions, we recommend you hold on, buy the boost, and jump straight into the action.
These are the most important changes in patch 2.0 for World of Kings. You will also find many lesser additions such as new artifacts, new toys, a new forge system, and new sign-in rewards, among many others.
