A free single-player arcade-survival game coming soon
The creative minds behind the PvP MMO EpicDuel have teased about a "big, exciting announcement" for the past few weeks. But today is a very special day, because that well-kept secret is finally being revealed…
Titan, Nightwraith, Charfade and Rabblefroth have been secretly developing a new mobile game entitled “BioBeasts” while also working on EpicDuel (woah, they must drink A LOT of coffee!). Today we’re excited to showcase the progress the EpicDuel team has made so far!
BioBeasts will be a free, single-player arcade-survival game for mobile devices (Android and iOS) where you control a mutating beast fighting to escape from a robot-controlled laboratory. You will control a variety of beasts as they try to escape from a lab run by the sadistic Alydriah. Defend yourself against a horde of robot guards, laboratory defenses, and hulking bosses as you claw, bite, blast, and bash your way to freedom! Unlock new beasts with special powers and obtain potent mutations to experiment with as the game progresses.
Be sure to post your questions and suggestions on the new site! The team will respond to your questions in a post on Friday (April 17). You can also follow all the exciting new announcements for BioBeasts on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
Bring on the BioBeasts!

The ‘Design a Release Contest’ winner will unleash his diabolical creation this Friday in AdventureQuest Worlds!
A few weeks ago, AQWorlds hosted our first ever “Design a Release Contest,” where 1 grand prize winner would get to see their ideas come to life in a brand new in-game weekly release.
But there’s a problem: you guys and gals are just too darn good at storytelling. So we choose 2 grand prize winners: Alastair Q, and Runester333!
This Friday at sundown, you will be making history alongside AdventureQuest Worlds, as you and your fellow heroes embark upon our first-ever player-created weekly release, “The Fell Beast” by Alastair Q!
Spoiler Alert: Gaze into the Mirror Realm…
Once the twisted playground of a foul Warlock, the forces of Order at last razed this evil construction to the ground at the zenith of the Great War against the forces of Alteon. Only the spirits of the fallen lurk here... along with the cursed Warlock's detestable minions.
Though the war is over in the Mirror Realm, darkness still broods in the heart of King Alteon the Imbalanced's accursed realm. A foul beast known only as a harbinger of disease and rot, the Cockatrice, runs amok without master or influence, ready to strike at the armies of the Champion of Order, Mirror Drakath.
For a while, the beast was trouble enough, carrying intelligence unlike its brethren, but now, events have taken a turn for the worst. Carrying still a semblance of its master's malevolence within, the Cockatrice has stolen from Mirror Drakath and his forces the most vital prize in the Mirror Realm; the Egg containing the developing 13th Beast of Order.
Hiding in the ruins of the Dark Warlock's Dungeon, the beast guards its prize, and you and Mirror Drakath must first locate this foul creature.
First, you will be heading to Battleoff and Brightfall to question those there as to the beast's whereabouts, before heading into the dark dungeon with Mirror Drakath and facing the hordes of undead who make their home there, all before slaying the fell Cockatrice once and for all!
Unless you are able to defeat the beast and keep the Egg intact, the realms will be thrown out of balance, allowing Chaos its final victory in your world and those beyond!
Who is Alastair Q?
Alastair Q is the sort of good-hearted hero who helps the helpless and defends the defenseless, all without expecting a reward from them—the true reward is the satisfaction gained from making someone's life better.
Before falling down a mountain and travelling down the path against Chaos, Alastair Q was simply a mercenary aligned with Good. If there was a job that needed doing, he did, but only if his moral principles would not be violated as a result.
As Sepulchure's forces marched closer to Swordhaven, Alastair took an oath upon himself to protect the realm he loved and to vanquish—or at least slow the process of the Undead, for what mortal can face a Doomknight of the shadow? After the climactic battle in Swordhaven and the subsequent Chaorruption of King Alteon, Alastair swore to do whatever it takes in order to defeat Drakath, all without breaking his morals.
Now, Alastair is more of a lone gun. Even though he will team up when needed, most of the time he's riding solo in his adventures across Lore, gaining the respect of all factions affected by Chaos so as to have the full might of Lore's armies behind him when marching to bring an end to Chaos on Lore.
How did Alastair start playing AQWorlds?
Originally, Alastair was playing the original AdventureQuest back in 2008. He slayed hundreds of foul beasts until he saw an advertisement for AQW, and he thought he may as well go and try it out.
Alastair did, and since 2009, he hasn’t stopped playing!
“I can't really describe what I enjoy about AQW - the beautiful background art, the music (especially in the newer areas), there are just too many details to pin-point.
“If there is anything I love especially, it is the wide range of items available for customization, allowing me to make my character the way I want him to be, without having to worry about what combination of items will be best for combat and instead, being able to enjoy the game, as was intended.”
What inspired Alastair to enter the contest:
“For me, the contest was a means to create a nice, standalone release which connected to the Chaos Saga, which players could enjoy and play through.
"My primary reason for choosing to enter was to contribute to AQW's canon - to form a part of AQW history and play a role, no matter how small, in adding to in-game lore.
“The second reason would have to be the Cockatrice itself - a very unique beast which rather surprisingly, was not yet present in AQW. There I saw my niche, and built my release around the monster whilst still attempting to retain that blend of humor and seriousness that makes AQW so appealing each and every week.
“The final reason includes the Mirror Realm. All of the other area choices were each appealing in their own way - but the Mirror Realm is perhaps the least unexplored of their own, and being a mirror image of our own Lore, the possibilities for a release were endless! Mirroring the approach of the 13th Lord of Chaos and the end of the Chaos Saga, I pictured things would be going equally well for the forces of Order as they were for Chaos, and so the idea of the 13th Beast of Order came to be.
“Overall, all these reasons are why I chose to join the contest, to try and immortalize an enjoyable release into AQW's canon.
“If I lost, I could at least have the satisfaction of knowing I tried, so I thought I may as well give it a shot. And in the end, is that not what matters - to keep on trying even after loss?”
Such inspiration from an aspiring hero! On behalf of the entire AQWorlds team and all the players who defend the world of Lore, we cannot wait to experience Alastair Q’s release, The Fell Beast, happening this Friday night at www.AQ.com. (Runester333's release will take place within the next few weeks!)

Introducing Elements & Shapeshifting
This Friday, January 24, 2014, marks the day that your favorite MMORPG introduces Elements into the world of Lore. DragonFable’s famous Shapeshifting NPC, Fae, will guide Legendary Heroes into a new elemental zone: Fable Forest.
Fable Forest is home to the Guardian Tree and the 4 fundamental Elements: Water, Fire, Nature, and Wind. Due to Fae’s unique—yet uncontrollable—Shapeshifting abilities, she will randomly change into a DragonFable-inspired Elemental creature during your quests, which will buff your Attack power, decrease your Attack power, or remain neutral.
If you’re fighting Fire Elementals, and Fae changes into a Water Elemental, you will do an Attack Damage increase!
But… if you’re fighting Water Elementals, and Fae sneezes and changes into a Fire Elemental, then you will do less Attack Damage.
Same thing with Nature and Wind: Wind Element is strong against Nature Elementals, and Nature Elementals will do less damage against Wind Elements.
And if Fae changes into an element that’s neither strong nor weak against the Elementals you’re fighting, you’ll do normal Attack Damage. So if Fae turns into a Fire Elemental, and you’re fighting Wind or Nature Elementals, you’ll do normal Attack Damage.
After you help Fae retrieve the 4 fundamental Elements stones, the portal in the Guardian Tree will open, granting you an acquaintance with the Forest Guardian. Here you will uncover Fae’s mysterious past and how she got her Shapeshifting powers!
It’s Elemental, My Dear Watson
This is only the beginning of Elements in AQWorlds. One of the best features in AdventureQuest & DragonFable is Elemental strengths and weaknesses, which we will slowly and carefully implement into AQWorlds. Only 4 Elements are being introduced this week, but if you wanna get a head start at understanding Elements, then keep on reading!
There are 8 Elements total. Moving clockwise, the Elements are STRONG against the next, so Fire beats Ice, Ice beats Wind, Wind beats Nature, etc.
If you move counterclockwise, Elements are WEAK against the previous, so Fire is weak against Water, Water is weak against Energy, Energy is weak against Nature, etc.
There are 2 Unique Elements not contained within the Elemental wheel: Light and Darkness. Light is strong against Darkness, and Darkness is strong against Light.
REMEMBER! In Friday’s release, the only Elemental strengths and weaknesses you need to know are:
- Water is STRONG against Fire
- Fire is WEAK against Water
- Wind is STRONG against Nature
- Nature is WEAK against Wind
But we also understand that some of you might be worried about Elementals “changing the game too much.” Do not worry, my friend! As stated earlier, we will slowly and carefully implement Elements into the game. And with your help and suggestions, we will take AQWorlds to a whole new (gaming) level!
Defeating Drakath and the Lord of Chaos is still our Number 1 priority, but we wanted to give you a little sneak-peek at what the Team is planning for you. Elements are AWESOME in AQ and DF, and we hope to bask in that awesomeness in the upcoming future with you =)
Battle on my loves!
xoxo Beleen =D

Sneak Peek at the newest Class arriving Friday
Normal is good… Evolved is better… and Ultra is the BEST! The Ultra Elemental Class is arriving this Friday, January 17, 2014. It is the first new class of the New Year, and it is probably the last Class you will EVER want to master!
The Ultra Elemental Class is unlike any other. You must harness each Elemental Orb Cape to prove yourself worthy of becoming the Ultra Elemental. Each Orb Cape offers special boosts when equipped:
- Water Orb: Class Points boost
extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Fire Orb: XP boost
extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Wind Orb: Gold boost, extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Earth Orb: Reputation boost
extra damage against Chaos and Elemental monsters
- Energy Orb: Class Points boost
extra damage against Chaos and Dragon monsters
- Ice Orb: XP boost
extra damage against Chaos and Dragon monsters
- Light Orb: Reputation boost
extra damage against Chaos and Undead monsters
- Dark Orb: Gold boost
extra damage against Chaos and Human monsters
AC versions of the capes will be available from Draven Stormbringer in Battleon for AdventureCoins. Legends can quest for some of the Orb Capes (certain levels of Faction Rep will be required) and buy others with gold.
Once all Capes are in your possession, you shall turn them into Draven Stormbringer in Battleon who will grant you access to the Ultra Elemental Class Shop. This shop contains:
- Ultra Elemental Class: 0 AdventureCoins
- ALL Elemental Orb Capes: 0 AdventureCoins
- Exclusive Chaos Orb: ????????
The Ultra Elemental Class is undergoing hardcore skill training at the moment (HA, and I thought CrossFit was challenging!). Due to my sneaky-sneak abilities (and not knowing what "keep this a secret" means), I managed to catch a glimpse of the Ultra Elemental’s Skills before Dumoose chased me off.
- Elemental Fusion: Strike your opponent with the elements you currently have charged. Different effects based on which elemental magics are combined.
- Blaze: Deals a burst of fire damage and charges your next Elemental Fusion with Fire Magic.
- Stoneskin: Reduces all incoming damage for a duration. Charges your next Elemental Fusion with Earth Magic.
- Chain Lightning: Strike multiple opponents for increasing damage for each jump. Bounces up to 5 times. Charges your next Elemental Fusion with Energy Magic.
- Command of Darkness (passive): Strength increased by 10%
- Command of Light (passive): Intellect Increased by 10%
- Blizzard: All Elemental Fusions have a chance to unleash a fusion of Wind and Ice. The blizzard will lower your opponents haste significantly for 5 seconds.
These skills are subject to change before Friday, so don’t hold everything up there verbatim. I just wanted to share with you what I found because… well… that’s what spoiler alerts are all about!
I know you’re looking forward to mastering the Ultra Elemental Class. So make sure you log in this Friday night to be one of the first Ultra Elementals in Lore!
