AFK Arena welcomes its first-ever Awakened Hero, Talene - The Resurging Flame

Lilith Games has announced a huge update to AFK Arena, bringing its first-ever Awakened Hero into the idle RPG. In particular, Talene - The Resurging Flame is joining the fray as a reborn version of Talene - The Rising Phoenix.

In the latest update for AFK Arena, players will discover the tale of Talene's fate during her battle with the Hypogen known as Framton via a gorgeous story cinematic. Players can also expect a new comic about the celestial hero's vengeance and rebirth, as well as an exclusive track titled Soar by Daisy Gray.

Players will uncover the narrative of how Phoenixes roamed the lands of Esperia in peace until the Hypogen known as Framton wreaked havoc and wiped out the entire race. Talene became the last surviving member of the once-glorious race, and with the power of the Solaris Flare, she transforms into The Resurging Flame. Armed with new abilities and a firm resolve, she sets out on a quest to avenge her people into the Dark Forest.
