Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross – Sun God Freyr, Skoll & Hati Demonic Beast Battle, and New Events
Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, the turn-based card battler RPG (Role-Playing Game) is back to its original schedule of releasing new heroes and new events for the community. After a successful 3rd anniversary for the global region, the game also released a developer note stating that the difference between updates in JP/KR versions and the Global version of the game will be reduced to 1 week instead of the previous 2-week gap. This reduced gap means that Netmarble wants to focus more on the inputs of the global player base which is a good sign for the health of the game. The new update and its details are officially released on The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross official forums.
Starting to take a look at the new stuff coming with the update, players will be thrilled to know a new hero called Sun God Freyr will be joining the champion pool in-game.
