Tower of Fantasy’s first major content update is coming later this fall, but players don’t have to wait until then to see the new playable character Cobalt-B, who will be added to the free-to-play gacha MMORPG on October 6. .
Cobalt-B gives off some serious manic scientist vibes as she becomes obsessed with perfecting her signature weapon, the Flaming Revolver, in a new trailer. Despite being called a revolver, Cobalt-B’s weapon certainly looks like a shotgun, with gameplay footage showing him attacking enemies with energy grenades and up-close and personal shots that spread out in a large forward-facing cone. If his name didn’t give it away, his weapon is a fire-based one, joining King and his scythe, Huma and his shield, and Zero with his negation cube.
Characters and weapons are not exactly the same in Tower of Fantasy. The characters in Tower of Fantasy are called Simulacrum, and they are essentially optional skins that players can use if they see fit. However, unlocking those characters also includes their signature weapons, which can be used regardless of their corresponding owner.
A special limited-time event, Vera Orienteering, is currently live and will run until October 12. This event will allow players to earn a variety of rewards from various challenges, and aims to prepare players for the game’s next major Vera expansion.
Once the Tower of Fantasy Vera update arrives, players will be able to explore a new desert region that is home to the cyberpunk city of Mirroria. It is where the main story of the game will continue, as shown in a recent story trailer.
Before the arrival of Cobalt-B, Tower of Fantasy received two new characters, the wielder of the icy sword Frigg and the tenacious Claudia. Tower of Fantasy has had over 10 million downloads since its release and is available on PC and mobile devices.
