Cabal Online, the MMO developed by ESTsoft, is preparing for it's most awaited expansion since the game's launch, way back in 2005.
For those that have tried Cabal Online and got to at least level 50, and achieved the second battle mode - Battle Mode 2 - which is the game's most "distinctive" feature, you might guess the next addiion by the update's title.
As for those that haven't tried the game, Cabal Online has a feature called "Battle Mode" in which, for 80 seconds, the players stats are increased depending on his class.
While on the first battle mode (Battle Mode 1) all classes would only get increased stats ( attack, defence, attack rate, critical damage and critical rate) on the second one, Battle Mode 2, the user's weapon changes into a weapon speciffic for his class plus increased stats.
The new expansion called 3rd Evolution, brings the "mythical" Battle Mode 3 to action.While Battle Mode 2 only changed the weapon, Battle Mode 3 will change both weapon and armor, thus boosting the player's number of options and strategies.
The expansion also comes with a new dungeon called "Merchant's Submarine Valley" and many changes to the drop-table, user interface options, crafting and new pets, which will be officially announced pretty soon.
The expansion has already been implemented in the korean servers, and is expected to arrive on the other regions ( EU, NA, PH, etc) in early 2012.
