As teased in our March 2017 preview of Revelation Online, the Shadowblade expansion has brought a lot of new extras and features, most notably the Assassin class, to the game this week.

Being the only class with stealth, the assassin is best suited to close distance without drawing aggro before unleashing her melee dagger skills. For mid-range encounters, chain weapons bring the hurt with style. The CGI trailer gives you some sense of the how the assassin moves and fights:

Be sure to check out our Assassin preview as well.

Assassins won't be the only ones getting sneaky. A new feature in the Shadowblade expansion also allows players to change out their class and equipment at any time, provided you find a safe place to do so. This will come in handy to explore the new dedicated quest content and class area vendors available for every class line.

Finally, Revelation Online is stepping slightly out of the traditional fantasy MMO and going full-on Hayabusa with the new mount: the Venom ZX500.

Level 45 and up players will have to complete a series of trials to tame this beast (it functions as a ground mount and an aerial mount), so see Instructor Gale at Sidus Ur for your learner's permit.
