WEBZEN has announced that the dungeon-based MMORPG CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL (C9) will unleash its latest update, Ancient Arena, tomorrow.
After the scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, November 24th, 2015 (UTC), the update will introduce a new competitive PvE dungeon, Ancient Arena, along with a PvP tournament system.
Characters with a level of 51 or higher will be able to delve into the Ancient Arena in the world of Glenheim, and attempt to defeat one monster (1v1) within two minutes per round, once a day.
To enter the Ancient Arena, players will need to talk to the Portal Mage with the invitation ticket, and click on "Enter Ancient Arena". A different monster will be spawned each round, and the round will end when players defeat the monster, die, or the time limit ends.
After each season ends, players will receive various rewards, including brand new Growth Stones. These will enable players to increase their gear stats according to their rank while the season is in progress. A new season kicks off every two weeks.
In addition, PvP enthusiasts with a level of 45 or higher will be able to take part in a new 1v1 PvP tournament every Sunday, with winners gaining special Auspice and even more rewards.
