A New Villain Takes to the Skies
The Member-only Skyguard storyline starts this week!
The Skyguard are King Alteon's elite aero-martial corps, patrolling the skies and keeping the land clear of do-baders. (Like do-gooders, but... evil.) But what happens when a rogue citizen turns on their country and King? What happens when vendettas grow out of control, when all they see in the forces of good are a means to their own twisted end? You'll find out!
Members are invited to journey to the Skyguard Academy this weekend to begin an all-new storyline* full of madness, mayhem, and maybe a little misdirection. Or not. You'll have to play to see! But whatever you expect is going to happen, think again, because the twists and turns in this tale will take you on a ride across Lore and into the depths of a tortured mind!
* Storyline will be updated one week a month to let us release other awesome content, too!
Player Suggestion Shop Update!
AQWorlds is YOUR game, and that's why we keep putting your art into it! (That, and because you guys have amazing ideas that inspire our artists to even greater feats of Flash-tastic experimentation.) Be sure to check out the new items that will go live in the Shop this Friday; here are samples of three excellent items to equip-
The Heartless Cross armor, Banisher Armor, and Tyrant Queen's Suppression Daggers
HeroSmash goes live this Thursday, April 28th, and to celebrate, we're offering a shop full of villainous gear and all the heroic items a good guy could want, and it's all based on the art of HeroSmash! So grab your gold and clutch your ACs, because this gear is SMASHIN'! (That's a good thing.) PS - On Thursday, the Panda Cannon will be moved to some mysterious place in-game. Happy hunting!
Windsor Wedding Win!
Here at Artix Entertainment, we LOVE love, and what better way to say "Grats" to Prince William of Wales and his fiancee, Kate Middleton, than to offer them a shop full of gnarly nuptial gear? So, whether you're a fan of royal weddings or just like to grab up the rare items that celebrate them, this shop's for you! (And if you happen to take tea with the royal couple, why not introduce them to AQW? It's not every Prince who gets personal gear in this game!)
We've got a rockin' week planned, now all that remains is to get it done! See you on the forums, Twitter, and Facebook!
