Perfect World Entertainment has just released the first content update for anime-brawler MMO, Rusty Hearts. The Awakening update brings new areas, a large number of added quests, additional bosses and toughened enemies – and, of course, a bunch of additional weaponry and combat abilities for the game's characters so players will have a hope of surviving all the fresh trials.
The patch also removes
the game's Stamina system, effectively giving players one less thing to worry
about running out of. Enemies' abilities are raised too, though: monster AI has
been tweaked to make opponents more aggressive and resilient. Luckily, the
level cap's been raised to 30 to help players retain an edge.

Besides 85 new
side-quests exploring the game's characters and world, 40 new story-quests
propel characters through the four original areas added to the update:
Steamworks, Collapsed Halls, Public Baths and Guest Villa. Which is nice and
all, but if you've learned your way around every attack your character's
capable of, you'll be glad to know that the update adds plenty of abilities too,
including offensive spells and attack combos. At least five new
character-specific weapons are now available for each of the game's heroes.

Awakening update, including player challenges like the just-launched Ladder
Challenge, on the game's blog.
