Fiesta Online is Outspark's flagship free-to-play anime MMORPG, which is set to
have a brand-new expansion - Expedition to Adealia - coming out very soon. A new
land to explore. New creatures to fight. New levels to gain. We sat down with
Fiesta Online's Senior Product Manager - Daniel Chang - to discuss the upcoming
expansion and what fans can expect when they take the trip to Adealia.
What's the story behind Fiesta: Expedition to Adealia? When players first
begin the expansion what are they going to be faced with?
The expansion starts at the edge of Isya?s Dark Lands which borders Adealia
Fields where players will encounter a magical teleport gate that will transport
them on their journey.
Can you talk about the actual settlement of Adealia? Based on concept art it
seems like Adealia is protected or enshrined in some luminous dome while the
surrounding area is covered in shadow. Will players discover the secret behind
Yes, there is a mystery that lies in the shadows, something terrifying that will
drive players to unite forces and embark upon an epic adventure.
What is the name of the new race that inhabits Adealia? Can you talk about
some of their physical traits and what they're like? I've seen them described as
having "vulpine features and the cunning traits of foxes." Will players simply
be interacting with this race or will they be able to create characters of this
The Adealian residents are not a playable race, but players will enjoy
interacting with them on their quests as they are a hearty and varied population
with personality traits ranging from wise and stern, to friendly and helpful, to
downright surly. The Adealians also have a deep symbiotic relationship with
their natural surroundings that is tied into the lore of the game.
Given their history, it seems the Doomed Elves are as a whole the villains of
the expansion. What can you tell us about the Doomed Elves as to why they are
opposed to Adealia? What kind of physical traits do they have? What kind of
Doomed Elves will players fight throughout the course of the expansion?
Perhaps a picture is worth a thousand words. Here is a first look at a brutish
Doomed Elf that players need to battle in Kahal. Check out that tattoo. You?ll
want to be prepared when you run into him.
Based on the news that was released, it seems that one of the big selling
points of the expansion for Outspark is the story and the world itself. Would
you say that's an accurate statement? MMORPGs aren't always known for their
storylines, and some can be quite flimsy, but you're promising one full of
"mystery and intrigue." Can you share a little about the overall storyline and
what players will be partaking in? Are there going to be discoveries and twists
and turns along the way?
Fiesta: Expedition to Adealia takes players on a soaring journey that leads into
a darkness they haven?t seen before. There is a great deal of drama that will
unfold and we will be calling upon our vibrant creative community to write the
lore with us, similar to the contributions they made for Fiesta Chapter 6:
How many quests are being added with the new expansion? Are you doing
anything different with the quests or are a lot of them still going to be the
"kill x amount" and "deliver this" kind that populate many games?
There are over 100 quests planned for launch with many more being added in the
weeks that follow.
Two regions of the expansion were recently revealed in a press release. The
first region is Psiken - what can you tell us about the aesthetic of this area
and the different types of monsters that players will be fighting?
There are two zones in Psiken - one is Psiken Garden and the other is Psiken
Mansion, both have vast areas to explore. Players will encounter mobs of ghosts
and vampires, a zombie girl who spawns a rabid dog, and a wicked three-headed
dragon, lion, goat fire-breathing winged Chimera with serpent tail.
Another region players will be visiting is Kahal - what is this region going
to look like and what kinds of enemies will players be fighting in this area?
Kahal is a light-filled scenic coastal savannah with waterfalls and whimsical
safari-themed beasts. Here you will find the colorful Battle Beak and
Flame-Tattooed Gorillas among other creatures.
The expansion is going to be raising the level cap. What's the current level
cap and what is it being raised to?
Current level cap is at 110 and we?re raising it to 115. Five new levels with a
plethora of fresh, exciting content.
Will players have to be at the current level cap to be strong enough to
survive in the new land or what minimum level are you recommending for players?
Fiesta: Expedition to Adealia is for Fiesta Online's highest level players, but
newbies will have many opportunities to partake in Adealia adventures with
special launch events led by Fiesta Game Masters.
As players gain levels, how will they be able to make their character more
powerful? Are any new skills being added or are we looking at stat point
Yes, there will be 10 new skills, one per each subclass.
What's the story behind the new open world dungeon and leading up to it? Also
what is its name? Is there anything you can share about some of the bosses in
this dungeon? I know news mentioned pretty outstanding loot. Anything you care
share about those rewards?
Yes, there are treasure houses of loot to delight in - stay tuned for details.
If we might've missed anything, are there any other features you'd like to
talk about that's being added with the expansion or some final words to leave
