I created this comic using screenshots from my own game in Granado Espada. I hope you enjoyed it even if it’s kinda silly.
Of course, the game isn’t anywhere near as silly as my story. It’s a very stylish game with a great soundtrack that inspires while it immerses you in the environment.
Into its fourth year now, Granado Espada has just released another expansion, Version 5. It’s like a totally new game with a whole new map set in the period between the 1500s and 1700s.
I must say I enjoyed the game a lot more than I did when I first played it three years ago.
I used to not like the fact that you had to control three characters at once, even though that’s supposedly the selling point of the game. I guess I’m the kind of person who likes to focus on one thing at a time.
But I actually enjoyed it this time. It does help that you can defeat an encounter because you have two other party members with different skills you can either control manually or set on auto mode so they fend for themselves.
After three years, Granado Espada is still one of the top grossing MMORPGs in the region, with about a million registered players (280,000 in Singapore alone).
Besides the three-character feature, I think players love the beautiful designs of the costumes and equipment, as well as the world itself. There are also very frequent events and activities to keep things exciting. Sometimes, players are also allowed to contribute to designs and content!
If you haven’t tried Granado Espada, this new expansion can be played as a new game. You don’t have to have played the older versions in order to enjoy this one. Of course, you’ll need to spend a bit of time exploring and learning all the features from all the NPCs scattered around town, but you have to do that with most games, anyway.
If you’re not new to Granado Espada, you’ll probably love the new stuff in this expansion.
A new land — Castilla Island — brings with it new quests, monsters and missions as well as a new medal system for prominent bragging rights.
A new roulette system for item rewards which ensures fairness in loot division.
Valeria, a new recruitable scout NPC with better recovery and longer range healing. Sister to Princess Gabriela, leader of the Royalist faction, Valeria was confined in the deepest part of Prison de Jaquin since birth. She’ll be very useful in PvP battles and raids!
Premium recruitable NPCs are now free! You have to earn them through completing quests, but that’s still better than paying money for them, right? Time to get those dudes you’ve always wanted!
New expert stances that deal higher damages.
The best thing of all is that this game is totally free to play!
