The Order & Chaos Online update that we told you about a couple of weeks ago is finally live and available to download from Apple's App Store.

According to Gameloft, this refresh is the "biggest update ever" to its ambitious mobile MMORPG. We definitely agree.

Firstly, the French publisher has abolished the game's monthly subscription. Yes, once you've downloaded the app, you can now play it until your heart's content completely free of charge.

Player vs Player (PvP) arenas have also been added to the fray, along with new online leaderboards that will track the number of opponents you successfully slay. As promised in our previous article, mounts are now available in the game, too. These trusty 'steeds' include lions, stags, and bears.

The last of the major new additions is Sailen, Part 2 - a new dungeon in the Lower City that's purportedly "the most challenging" yet.

Not done yet

Finally, the update introduces several new quests and high-level items, as well as a 30-day teleport pass and an über-special costume that should be familiar to fans of N.O.V.A. protagonist Kal Wardin.

You can download Order & Chaos Online from the App Store as a Universal app for £4.99 / $6.99.
