Dynasty Blades gets an epic new update

Dynasty Blades returns to the battlefield today with a new update that’s sure to serve up even more stylish hack n’ slash action. Based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a Chinese historical novel well-embedded in east-Asian popular culture, Dynasty Blades allows you to take up the mantle of one of many legendary heroes. Players slice their way through hordes of enemies in an epic quest for glory.

The latest update to the game introduces new hero Zhang He, one of the Five Generals of Wei. His prowess in battle makes him a worthy addition to your crew of champions. Of course, a new hero is nothing if he can’t ride into battle in style, so Dynasty Blades is also introducing a mount system. Players can now ride horses, tigers, jaguars, and more into battle. These new furry friends also provide some nifty stat boosts.

Two new events are being thrown into the mix, too. These weekly festivities open up the opportunity to win rare prizes. The Treasure Plunder event is a lottery of sorts, with players attempting to draw a lucky number and win big. The Drop & Exchange event, meanwhile, makes it more likely for rare items to drop after completing a stage.

Among other assorted tweaks and fixes, people will now also be able to buy back resources lost from the day before by spending a bit of gold or diamonds. Update 2.3 brings a lot of fresh changes to the game. If you want to see it for yourself, Dynasty Blades is available for free on both Android and iOS.
