With the holidays almost at our doors, it’s time to get comfy and play some CrossCode. And what’s better to go along with this than a new update? Even though this is not a “new number”-Release this update packs a lot of content so let’s check them all out, shall we?
Final part of Gaia’s Garden unlocked
South-East of Gaia’s Garden lies a small Shad settlement which is now accessible for exploring. However, you might find yourself to be an unwanted guest. What could have happened here? Note: This region will get more Story through optional quest in later updates.
So’Najiz Temple aka The Wave Temple
West of the Rite of Passage inside Gaia’s Garden you can now enter the So’Najiz Temple which will not only give you access to the Shock Element but also the final key to open all those golden chests! Oh did we mention this is an underwater temple? Really the best place for an avatar to be, don’t you think so too?
The final element is finally here. While Wave was an element designed to help you with healing buffs or pushing away foes, this one is all about quick attacks and fast movements.
Basin Keep Extension
Both the west and east maps of Basin Keep are now accessible. While the west area is home to many high-society residents, the east one is a problematic region for the city in many ways. Both of these maps are already quite far ahead and we wanted people to see them but they will get more NPCs and quests too. You might already find some chests you can’t access right now. Look out for a special quest in the eastern part in later updates!
Like always we made a lot of smaller adjustments or additions. Here’s a quick list of most new things:
- All chests that required keys now have special graphics making them stick out more. The same is true for chests that contain keys found inside dungeons.
- We reworked positional sounds! No more distant splash sounds. We also added a bunch of environmental sounds like waterfalls for instance.
- Find new Quests in Ba’kii Kum!
- The trade menu now always shows the stats for a piece of equipment on the left side at all times.
- Extended German Translation!
- New Background Music for So’Najiz AND Zir’Vitar Temple!
