Jade Dynasty: Vengeance to launch August 25
Jade Dynasty’s latest expansion, Vengeance, will launch later this month on August 25th.
The expansion will add two new playable factions, the Celan and the Rayan. New territorial war systems allow for server specific, ongoing alliance warfare. Players will now be able to communicate cross-realms to find players their level for partying, and new PvE daily events will offer better daily rewards. Also coming is an auction house that acts differently than usual: the lowest unique bid will win one-of-a-kind items in this market.

With whole territories up for grabs, Jade Dynasty will never be the same again.
Jade Dynasty: Vengeance will offer a variety of new features and content for new and existing players to discover including:
- New Factions – Choose between two new Athan factions including the Celan, known for their ability to manipulate foes and support allies using their music notes of the Immortals, or the Rayan, feared as deadly assassins, even among their own allies.

- PvE Daily Events – Participate in new PvE daily events designed to have much higher rewards.
