AdventureQuest 3D has just launched its latest update that adds an exhilarating PvP mode to the cross-platform MMO. The new PvP arena not only provides an avenue for players to duke it out to see who's the best of the best, but it also lets players switch classes at will even in the midst of a heated battle.

The cross-platform fantasy MMORPG now features a traditional PvP system called “Battle Arenas” after months of diligent work from the AdventureQuest 3D team. Setting it apart from the regular combat system of the game, the Battle Arena puts the individual player's skill front and center during epic matches. The play style highlights the player's mastery of the classes rather than the stats of their gear.

To showcase a player's class mastery even further, the new Battle Arenas feature a Class Glory system that players can earn. The Battle Arenas also feature a Queuing system where players can join in on all the action using their five-person party. They can also join a team with other players, where the match will only begin once all team rosters are full and good to go.

Finally, the new PvP system's Control mode lets players pit themselves against another team of five to the death. The goal is to capture three zones and earn points. Players will also be able to switch classes on the fly.

Rewards for AdventureQuest 3D's PvP modes are aplenty, so if you just can't wait to join the action-packed brawls, you can download the game on the iOS App Store or on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
