Meliodas, Hawk, and the other characters from the anime The Seven Deadly Sins are incredibly popular and well-received. So much so, in fact, that a mobile game based on the Netflix show launched last year called The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross.
Since then, the game has grown, both in scope and popularity, alongside the series on which it was based. Of course, it definitely doesn't hurt that the original Japanese voice actors reprise their roles in the game, either.
While there has been more than enough content to keep players content, a new story chapter has been added today, which is outrageously extensive. Ragnarok is the new addition to The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, and it is being touted as the equivalent of a full season of the Netflix anime.
The official press release is as follows.
Fans of The Seven Deadly Sins IP eager to see the continuation of Meliodas and The Seven Deadly Sins are in luck as Netmarble is thrilled to announce that ‘Ragnarok.’- an all-new continuing story for its cinematic adventure role-playing game (RPG) The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross for the App Store and Google Play– is now live as a substantial in-game update for players to experience. To celebrate, Netmarble is gifting all players 100x Diamonds alongside 1x SSR [Warrior of Justice] Wanderer Thonar hero, and a full costume set for Wanderer Thonar.
'Ragnarok' is a wholly-original story made exclusively for The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, and it is an ambitious and grandiose content update that expands the fan-favorite lore of The Seven Deadly Sins, while introducing new and diverse gameplay elements for experienced players. Players can look forward to the first chapter of the ‘Ragnarok’ story, which is equivalent to a full season of The Seven Deadly Sins anime. Additional updates, including all-new story Chapters, stunning Ragnarok characters, and more, will be added continuously for the game.
The story of ‘Ragnarok’ starts when Meliodas happens upon a forgotten library and discovers a book titled ‘Legends of Yggdrasil’ where he, along with the rest of The Seven Deadly Sins, are transported to the world of Midgard, a world nearing its end due to a three-year winter foretold by prophecy. New adventures await as Meliodas meets new Heroes from Norse mythology, explores an all-new world, and conquers dangerous dungeons to become even stronger.
Players can look forward to the following at launch:
- Chapter 1 of ‘Ragnarok Story’ – Experience the first part of Netmarble’s wholly-original storytelling that is equivalent of one full anime season. New chapter updates will introduce new Ragnarok heroes, related content, and new gameplay elements. Further details on chapters will be shared at a later date.
- The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, Ragnarok Exclusive Heroes – An all-new set of original Heroes are now available to collect. These include SSR [Wielder of Gram] Prince Sigurd, SSR [Ragnarok] Lostvayne Meliodas, and [Warrior of Justice] Wanderer Thonar among others.
- World Tree Tower / Grimnirs Book In World Tree Tower, players can conquer an all-new dungeon based on the world of Ragnarok and farm for upgrade materials in this new area. The all-new Grimnir’s Book allows players to learn more about the world of Ragnarok, its setting, and other facts about the world. Each update will add new content players can check to learn even more.
