Karlsruhe, Germany (June 12, 2024) - Today, Gameforge, a leading international publisher of popular MMORPGs, is excited to announce Act 9, Part 2: Heroes of the Undercity, a major new update to anime action MMORPG NosTale.

Heroes of the Undercity advances the gripping story introduced in NosTale’s Secrets of the Undercity update, released in December 2023. In that update, players embarked upon a grand storyline set in the new expansive underground world accessible from NosVille Meadows. Focusing on Undercity, the capital of the underworld inhabited by the frog-like Mullan race, players confronted new threats, explored the Invaded Western Mines, and faced challenging new raids, such as the "Moss Gigant, Pollutus Raid," to earn fantastic rewards.

Continuing the subterranean adventure, the Heroes of the Undercity content update expands into the lower reaches of the earth, featuring new powers that will empower heroes just in time to face off against new raid challenges. Tasked with uncovering the whereabouts of the elusive Techron, players will navigate hidden gates, secret laboratories, and enemy traps.

Along the way, players will face the formidable Gigant Arma and its smaller counterparts, culminating in a strategic battle against a robot factory. This fresh take on the boss battle requires serious strategic coordination to overcome its intense combat, with only the highest-level NosTale players likely to defeat it.

To prepare players for this battle of epic proportions, a host of new specialists are being added, with one for each NosTale character class. Including the Warrior Specialist “Stone Breaker,” capable of setting enemies alight or drilling right through them, and the sneaky sniping Archer Specialist “Fog Hunter,” there are multiple new ways for NosTale players to customize their playstyles.
