IRVINE, Calif. – Feb. 24, 2011 – Manga fans – prepare to leave the pages behind and dive into the frenetic adventures of action-packed online role-playing game Elsword . The debut game from Kill3rCombo, a joint venture of Level Up! Games and KOG Studios, is a comic book influenced free-to-play gaming experience slated to launch this spring, introducing throngs of new followers to fast-paced gameplay and non-stop adventure. 

Elsword offers gamers the chance to star in their own comic book through the fun and accessible nature of an online game, complete with fast paced gameplay with stunning animation. Combining superior attack and movement with anime-style graphics, players will feel as if they are playing their way through the images of an interactive comic book.

Elsword introduces a unique gameplay style that extends a growing brand to a new legion of players,” said Ben Colayco, CEO of Kill3rCombo. “Each time they enter the world, fans will find new ways to experience Elsword’s depth of adventure, story and action. We hope players will find the Japanese illustration style and heavy PvP action a perfect mix for our first game .”

In Elsword, players tackle a myriad of adventures based on a number of exciting storylines as one of three customizable characters. They take in the comic book style animation and explore the immersive worlds and dungeons, all while participating in either party based dungeons or extensive player-versus-player (PvP) battles that pair fighters against each other. Complete with special character subclasses at level 15 and 35, Elsword will challenge players to excel in a dynamic and ever-changing world.

Elsword is currently planned for a Spring 2011 release. More information and assets, including characters and skills images, please visit the official website.
