Games-masters.com today announced that Soul & Siena, the second major update of the year for its hugely popular FREE-TO-PLAY game, CABAL Online, will go live on 16th June 2009. Arriving only three months after the previous expansion, which saw the introduction of new hunting grounds, a title system and new items, Soul & Siena continues to build on the games solid foundations, adding a new raiding dungeon, high level armours and a unique bonus skill system.
Introducing a new layer of customisation, the bonus skill system offers players the chance to increase their strength by harnessing the power of their soul. Gathering soul experience while hunting, this new experience can be used to learn a range of new skills and powers, opening up a series of paths for further character development. Benefits to be learned include increased luck rates (e.g. the drop rate of CABALs gold), increased experience or additional attributes such as attack or magic power.
These new powers will be required to tackle the challenges that lie ahead. With a dangerous force emerging from the dark temple, the Altar of Siena, the warriors of Nevareth will need to rise up and destroy the evil that threatens to engulf the lands. Inside the ruined temple, located deep within the Mutant Forest, players will face foes that possess powers unlike any ever witnessed before, providing a challenge to even the strongest and most intelligent of adventurers. But with great risks come great rewards and treasures to be found inside CABALs latest raiding dungeon include a brand new set of previously undiscovered armours.
With this new update security has also been increased with the inclusion of a new sub-password system. Players are able to create a four digit password, locking equipped items, storage, and even a character. These passwords are optional, yet will help many players protecting their items from potential account breaches.
Soul & Siena will be offered as a FREE update and includes, on top of the features already listed, a host of changes and improvements, including:
- New keyboard and short-cut commands improving the smoothness and enjoyment of game play
- Further changes to the war maps, making the rewards fair and worthwhile
- Adjustments to the experience gained from the early level quests, making it possible for new players to quickly develop into the heroes of tomorrow.
- A number of bug fixes, fixing the most pressing and annoying bugs
