The summer holidays are off to a great start now that Brown Dust’s summer festival has officially begun. The sizable event for Neowiz’s fantastical strategy RPG is divided into 4 parts, with each lasting two weeks.

For those not in the know, Brown Dust sees you building your very own Mercenary army from over 300 characters, each with their own unique skill-sets ready for you to utilise in battle. Its stunning world is visually distinct and expansive, and its tactical combat system demands strategic thinking and prep, and its ever-growing fanbase is super passionate.

Taking part in the summer festival is easy, all you’ll have to do is put some time into the arena, campaign, rune temple, or novice arena. And the rewards for your efforts are plentiful, with 5-star Mercenaries, 30 legend scrolls, 5-star skills transfer tickets, and diamonds all up for grabs. On top of that, you’ll also be able to nab exclusive summer-themed outfits for fan-favourite Mercenaries Elisé and Anais.

Then there’s the brand-new puzzle event which tasks you with completing four daily missions. Successfully completing puzzles will eventually get you a summer lady outfit for Angelica, one of the legendary ‘Six Devils’.

Those looking for a bargain should also check out Brown Dust’s summer sale. Starting today, you’ll be able to find great deals on some of the best in-game items, including rune essence, 6-star rune pieces, supporter scrolls, honour points, and blue slimes which are now purchasable using gold and diamonds. Perhaps the biggest bargain of the lot is 20 premium scrolls for only $4.99 – not bad at all.

Brown Dust is the perfect game for RPG fans and lovers anime. And with the summer festival having only just kicked into gear, now is the perfect time to check it out over on the App Store or Google Play.
