Netmarble has released a sizeable update for their MMORPG A3: Still Alive today that introduces a new region to the game called Somius. In addition to this new place to explore, there will also be in-game events and enhancements for players to enjoy whilst those joining new servers can enjoy a massive experience boost.

Somius will add new quests to complete and territories to explore. Players will also be able to tackle the first two floors of the newly introduced Corrupt Aselcan Ruins dungeon. To allow players to prepare for the challenges the new region will pose, the level cap has been increased to 140 and new level 130-140 equipment has also been added.

An Offline Auto Battle – Alive Mode has also been added. This will allow players to continue questing even when they're not actively playing the game. A3: Still Alive will send alerts for item achievements, deaths, lack of supporting items and full inventory to help players keep track of what's happening whilst they're away and inform them if they need to dip in to adjust anything. 

Meanwhile, in newly opened servers, players will receive a 3x Experience Boost and take part in a Bonus Time event. There will be a host of rewards up for grabs including up to 3x Heroic 6-star Soul Linkers, a Legendary 8-star Conversion Ticket.

Elsewhere a Heroic Accessory Chest can be obtained through the Somius Special Event, Adrasil's Trial Ranking Event and a new Guild Event. Finally, every player can get themselves $150 worth of in-game items by inputting the coupon code 'POWERUPA3'.

A3: Still Alive is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
