The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross – All About the Stranger Things Collaboration
Grab your 80s bicycles, get your Dungeons and Dragons board game, and prepare for the time of your lives as The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross and Netflix’s popular series Stranger Things have teamed up to give an exciting, in-game event.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross x Stranger Things will have players hyped as the Kingdom of Britannia enters the Upside Down. This is a first, especially for The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross on PC, to be pairing up with a live-action series. If you jog down memory lane, you would recall the game launched a colossal collaboration with anime Attack on Titan just last year, which you can read on our previous blog post. We saw Mikasa, Eren, and Levi all live with their 3D Maneuver Gears inside the game.
This time, we will be witnessing Stranger Things’ main cast – Eleven, Will Byers, Mike Wheeler, and even Hawkins’ best officer, Jim Hopper. If you have not been in the loop, Stranger Things revolves around the bizarre events around the town of Hawkins, and how this group of kids solves and slays creatures from an alternate dimension called the Upside Down. The show currently has four seasons, with the last one showing how the kids defeated the Mind Flayer. Of course, the Mind Flayer is also present in this event and you, as the player, will be helping Eleven, Meliodas and the gang defeat this insane monster.
The event will take place at the Kingdom of Liones, where you are tasked to put a stop to these monsters invading the area. The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross x Stranger Things will be the first worldwide event to ever happen in the history of the game, taking place in the same week as Korea, Japan, and Global servers. After the update, players will receive 30 Diamonds as compensation for the maintenance.
Aside from the Diamonds, you will also be able to claim a single Stranger Things character for free, but the details were not given from the video. You will also receive an SSR collab unit and a costume along with it.
The Seven Deadly Sins x Stranger Things event will go live on Tuesday, April 27.
In the meantime, while we are all waiting for Netmarble to drop more information about the collab, some of the upcoming new content and features have been revealed through the 4/21 Dev Notes.
The Tower of Trials will get a new form, adding stages to it over time.
Netmarble is also planning to “lower the burden of Super Awakening” in the next updates to come, which means players will get more Super Awakening coins in the future. For next week’s update, we will all be receiving a generous 100 Super Awakening Coins after the maintenance.
The dev company also shared their thoughts on creating a high-level Death Match mode to take the competition one step higher than usual.
“Because Death Match is directly linked to hero growth, we have a plan to potentially increase the Limit Break to Level 90 when the new Death Match is added,” said Netmarble in their Dev Notes.
