Sidescrolling free-to-play games aren't everyone's cup of tea, but the genre has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years. Grand Chase
is hoping to stand out a bit more from the crowd, however, with the game's upcoming major content update. Rebranding the game as Grand Chase Chaos
, the update comes hand-in-hand with many of the features one would expect to see for a large patch, including the almost mandatory level cap increase along with some more unique features.
The more fundamental changes to gameplay will come from allowing players to equip two weapons at once, as well as the new Fusion system to allow combining two items into a new one. Monster AI is also being improved to be more challenging, while dungeon flow is getting streamlined and rewards are being better displayed. SG Interactive
is planning to release a trailer highlighting the changes in a week, but until then, we have a gallery including a few as-yet-unseen pieces of concept art.
