Battle of the Immortals has a massive expansion in its future.  We’re going to start releasing more and more details about this expansion during the coming weeks, and for now, we have new information about a brand new map called Mount Olympus!

newmap1

Mount Olympus is a new high level map featuring new ways to achieve Deity points, as well as fight new bosses that will be the highest level encounters available in the game after release.  Expect a series of new challenges and adventures in this new map, as you and your friends fight their way to the Palace of the Immortals.

Additionally, here's a quick look at some of the monsters you can expect to face in these new maps.  We've had a great deal of player feedback regarding mobs not dropping coins. We understand that this is something that many people would like to see, and we are happy to say that mobs in this zone will drop coins in addition to their regular loot drops.

More information about this expansion will be released soon, but until then, look forward to articles with details about everything ranging from new sets of skills as well as enhancing player recognition with rewards for those in high tiers of rank in the in-game ranking system!

    My last comment to sum things up : The game`s brilliant , well thought out , nothing`s ever perfect I`m very happy about playing the game , I`m looking forward to meeting all you guys on Mount Olympus.

    These comments are more technical: I think zen is really too expensive, perhaps there should be different grades of zen being bought , I mean 300.000 coins for 100 zen , it`s too much for me. I also think there should be more treasure maps available, is it possible for the chararchters to talk ? if possible rather than having to print something everytime, using skype for example? Is it possible to widen the kinds of characters you can create than mage , heretic, champion etc.? increase the kinds of weapons & armor available?

  • shetirek @ Nov 6th, 2010 10:25PM

    I`m excited about the expansion, I`d like to see Golden Island , Titania , The Northern Areas above the Dwarves Forest & more of the Nordic Lands implemented & used , I`d like to see a full map. I`d like to see the seas being used more extensively by ships, it wouls be nice to have sea travel & fighting monsters surfacing at sea while on board ships. I`d like to be able to board Viking Dragon Prow Ships to undertake Viking Raids & Explorations to Uncharted Lands & Islands. Buccaneer ships plundering the seas、in short , more usage of sea & land resources.

    flag up pk and takem out??

    First off, the expansion seems like a very, very good idea. It gives everyone more places to explore instead of hunting around Viking Steppe and Burning whatever it's called for the level 90-100 players, and it gives the lower level players something to look forward to,especially given that there will be (assumingly) be added quests for the extra areas that are being placed in. As for the monsters, depending on what the type of area this is (normal or an instance or just full of elites), it should be taken into consideration if these monsters will be able to be caught, and, above all else, if they can be caught, whether they can be melded. I've noticed that most monsters, apart from those in Rainbow Valley and Zodiac creatures can be melded, and even not all monsters in RV can be melded, which I suppose is a fun gamble and gives the player a feeling of accomplishment when they have caught one that can be melded, but it also increases the amount of frustration if they are at it for hours and hours. I'm not saying to make ALL pets meldable (that would take far too much time and effort, delaying the expansion by months) but to increase the percentage of which RV pets can be melded, not by much, perhaps by about three or four percent just to reduce the frustration of those trying to get meldable pets. As for the coin drops. Everyone will have different opinions on this; botters will love it as all they will have to do is turn the bot on, buy a heaven feather and watch their wallet expand overnight, but the lower level players will also complain if they can't get mobs that drop coin and be poor until level 70+. There isn't really a way around botting apart from players having an eagle eye and reporting them to GM's. Mobs dropping coins IS, a very good idea, no matter what people say. What the lower level players forget about is clans; there are always high level players in clans, and clans are (should) be willing to lend their fellow clan members coin, so you lower level players aren't missing out on as much as you think you are. If you don't want to join a clan, then that's up to you; just don't blame us higher players for having the coin. Another idea is that the items mobs drop (potions, consignment items etc) NEED to be worth more than 1 coin per sell item, it is ridiculous how many times I have had to delete items to get bag space because of the item being worthless or unneeded. The items need to be worth more, even if it is just by 50 coin increase or something; it would do the economy a great favour, even if you just implement one or the other of item value increase or mobs dropping coin, but the game NEEDS coin, otherwise it is just worthless currency. Another issue, is bag space. Bag space should either be free, or very expensive in terms f ingame currency. Yes, I know you can buy Zen with coin, but what's the point in getting coin, exhanging it for Zen, and then buying the bag space? Why not just get 200,000 coin and be able to skip the middle man and buy the bag space directly? I'm not saying cut out the Zen for bag space idea, as some people may be impatient and want bag space straight away, and the game will still have an income, but consider that some players aren't so desperate for it, so there should be an NPC where you can buy bagspace with coin to cut out the middle man of Zen. Long post, but I felt they are issues to be taken into consideration.

    Should also add new spells:D

  • orai @ Aug 21st, 2010 8:08AM

    Srsly we need more cities I'm sick of atlantis

  • spicyberry @ Aug 20th, 2010 7:22AM

    Guys check forum, Apparently PWE China Will release Battle of Immortals 2, maybe new patch for English Version?

  • deathpriest @ Aug 18th, 2010 1:19AM

    Before you guys bring Mount Olympus to life, shouldn't you be finishing up on Shadow Manor? Don't get me wrong, I'd like to try Mount Olympus out; however, I think you should finish up your previous updates and projects before bringing out other new things. Oh, and make sure you get all the bugs out before launching. Thank you.

  • bmxcody12 @ Aug 17th, 2010 10:42PM

    ive been playing BOI for 3 days and im a lvl 50 slayer and i got say i love this game because its not so confusing i can actually understand it and im looking forward to this because in Jade dynasty monsters dropped money to.......GOOD JOB PERFECT WORLD KEEP IT UP :)

  • blueskinned @ Aug 17th, 2010 11:05AM

    just make it so that only mount olympis mobs drop coins and set a queue for how many u can defeat then you have to answer a codex thing

  • mjjolnor

    Thankyou for actually using words that make complete sense when strung together. And thank you for giving a crap about if people can understand what you are saying and making sense. WHY are there so many illiterate people using computers... about 1/3 of these posts if not more can not be comprehended because the spelling is screwed up to the point where you can't understand it, lete-isms are used to the point of not even knowing which is lete or inability to spell at all, or just plain stupidity and laziness. It is nice to know that people like you exist blueskinned... almost all the others make me want to wrap my head in duct-tape (not duck tape) so it doesn't explode; you give me hope that maybe there is still real reading being taught in the schools, at least somewhere. THANK YOU FOR BEING LITERATE!!!!!

  • buzzmarley @ Aug 17th, 2010 7:35AM

    again, the game concept is nice but the gameplay is horrible .... 2D GAME???????? WE ARE IN 2010 and expect ppl to buy zen ? lol i play 5 min and get bored cuz i try to fix my view ... make it 3d and will se after .

  • affauck

    hey i know that this is not 3d but get over it other games arnt 3d ether and i but u u play them so if ur bord in 5 min then dont f...en play

  • atmaweapon

    Get bent Buzz. It's guys like you that contribute to the crumbling integrity of gaming in general. Graphics are only part of the overall gaming experience. Go play a different game if it puts that much sand in your mangina.

  • shadowxavior10

    Dude, seriously?! It's effing FREE. Get over it, and go play some WoW or ESIV: Oblivion in you want some 3D cpu gaming action.

  • xxxicex @ Aug 17th, 2010 5:34AM

    i guess that will be 500-2000 coin drop depend on mob type in there :P

  • shabanicus @ Aug 17th, 2010 1:53AM

    I am stunned by ammount of 'tardism in the comments below. 1st of all this game has high exp rate than most of them i played, hell u can even get to 60 in 1 day if you are smart enough, no need to become a nolifer. so getting to high lvls shouldn't take long... 2nd thing is a lot of dumb crap i see about botters, now do you rly think that there will be lvl 95+ bots running around that map, seriously? bots can't go pass trough 90 lvls unoticed. 3rd dont cry about high lvls getting the cash it's because they need it and to be honest, you rly don't need any cash in this game before lvl 90 actually to play it you don't need any coins at all just use free stuff if you are not a zen user. 4th simply stop crying there is nothing wrong with the game or it's economy, it is FREE to play with cash shop we all know how this rolls :D

  • dradhd

    im with shab on thbis, this game is the bets ive seen in a long time, the exp is great, coins are pretty irrelevant in lower levels, and theres always something to do,9.3 in my book

  • atmaweapon

    Agreed. Folks should quit bitchin over free lunch. If you can do better, make your own free games.

  • krazykraze704

    agreed best game i have played in a lonnnngg time

  • arkedia @ Aug 16th, 2010 10:15PM

    Hmm I hope they make coins bound to the players that get them . ^^

  • stayfrostyrs133 @ Aug 16th, 2010 8:04AM

    well im not shore at the moment im a low level only level i beleve 48 but i got the exp stones u can use once a day so hopfully it will rank me up before this comes out con about this is that the ppl are going to farm the crap out of the mobs it seems very well thought out though boi needed somthing new

  • zozokiller @ Aug 16th, 2010 4:26AM

  • bmilla @ Aug 15th, 2010 7:43PM

    i think it is cool i play wow and all the mobs drop coins

  • notolous8 @ Aug 14th, 2010 10:50PM

    when is the patch coming out? mobs dropping coins, its not really that much, but small coins helps, just hoping players wont raise thier prices in selling items, and hoping those monsters can be pets too, coz only pets makes this game different from other games..

  • w93491459 @ Aug 14th, 2010 6:51AM

    ive heard rumors these drop diamond,platinum,ect coins or is it just regular coins?

  • zdez09

    dude? its pwi were talking about with on earth wuld they put deluxe purse coins on mobs ¬.¬

  • davisvk @ Aug 13th, 2010 5:30PM

    i think coin map is bad idea.. why not just increase number of crazy shopping quests and rewards for them aswell? thatway no1 have to worry bout botters and every1 gets the promised extra coins. ^^

  • dsfsdj

    vsdcdsa

  • dark543d @ Aug 13th, 2010 8:54AM

    i hope i can use them as pets too ^^

  • thereisnospoon @ Aug 13th, 2010 8:18AM

    Im really happy with this expansion. Good job!!! (^.^)

  • darkice123

    They did do a good job!!!

  • mitchbbo2 @ Aug 13th, 2010 1:37AM

    personally, to avoid botting, i think they need to include some feature that will not allow a player to passively attack monsters for more than a set amout of time without answering a system query. sure, it may be a slight annoyance to legit players, but it also cuts down on botters, and thus worth it imo/

  • blueskinned

    dude that would reallyyyyyyyyy annoy alot of ppl if before they could atk that they had to type in a 10 letter thing

  • blueskinned

    instead do it before u enter an instance or something

  • atmaweapon

    Can't side with you on that one, guy. That would make me quit after the third or fourth pop-up. Nothing more annoying than pop-ups during gameplay. That's right up there with pay-for-power gaming.

  • cvicek @ Aug 12th, 2010 11:25PM

    Say what u want, mobs droping coins is a bad idea.

  • omhagad

    so why is that ?
