It seems quite fitting to the season for Asheron's Call
to name its newest event Darkest Night
. The January event continues the game's story with an attempt to put down Hoshino Kei once and for all.
Several new quests are being added to the game for the event, and an interesting "tell the story from the villain's point of view" lore tidbit gives some insight into the challenges that lie ahead for adventurers. There is also a quartet of screenshots from the event that include a lock with no key, a treasure room, a deadly pit, and a key. Hm. Going to be hard to figure that one out, eh?
