A3: Still Alive's latest patch introduces a brand new character alongside some celebratory events and new content
| A3: Still Alive

NetMarble’s super popular open-world RPG A3: Still Alive has released a new update that introduces a brand new character alongside a bunch of events and new content to celebrate said release. This new character, the Soulbinder, introduces a new way to play A3 and comes with a ton of new stuff to utilize her kit in as well.

The Soulbinder is a ranged-based character that lands somewhere between a typical Necromancer class from something like Diablo with your usual Ranger class found in most RPGs. Using her Soul Bullets, she can tear apart the battlefield from a distance, but also utilises a Summoned Creature who will boost her ATK and DEF stats at the same time. This makes for an interesting combo, and a pretty unique class overall.

Along with the Soulbinder, players will now be able to explore the Soulbinder’s Hall to access the PVP Field, a laboratory based around her character, and the Soulbinder’s Hunting Ground PvE field. Each field can be entered for only 8 hours a day, and if you manage to best both, you’ll get your hands on the Soulbinder’s Scythe, which can then be exchanged for a large collection of items ranging from upgrade materials to crafting mats and more.

Of course, to celebrate all of this new stuff, there’s also been some updates to other systems too. There’s a new Soul Runner, Foxy, who has been added alongside an increase to Soul Runner slots to 7 from the previous 6 it was capped out at. There have also been updates to the Shu Hybridize System and Shu Transcend Expansion as well as the Ore System.

In terms of events, there’s a new Soulbinder 7-Day Check-In Event that will give you tons of rewards throughout the upcoming week simply by logging in every day. This is alongside the Hot-Time Event, which offers a 400% rate increase to obtain EXP and Apostle EXP as well as a 100% rate increase to earned Gold and a 20% increase on equipment drops.

So, between all this new content and a ton of buffed rates that will make it much easier to level up and get rich quick, there’s never been a better time to try out A3: Still Alive. If you’d like to check it out yourself, you can download it for free at either of the links below!
