Build a kingdom of your own with the new Creature Quest update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on September 14th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The folks at VC Mobile have been diligent in unloading regular fresh content for their gacha RPG, Creature Quest, but now they’re taking things to an entirely new level with the game’s September update. Introducing a kingdom-building feature, a new dungeon system, and loads of new events, now’s a great time to jump back into the action or start anew.

The most exciting news is, of course, the Kingdoms feature. At long last, players are now free to build their own mini-kingdoms in Creature Quest. There are dozens of buildings to purchase and build. Once your little structures are up and running, you can assign a creature to each of your buildings, and they’ll help you run things. Building a Kingdom is a perfect opportunity to further strengthen your creatures and their abilities.

Dungeons have also gotten an important overhaul. Gold and silver tier players will now be able to fill out multiple dungeons. If you fill out multiple dungeons completely, you’ll get some valuable defense bonuses for your creatures. The game will choose one dungeon from a player with multiple dungeons at random for opponents to face. The rewards are great, and we expect you’ll enjoy the Dungeons’ new look.

VC Mobile has also implemented new ways to get creatures with more dots. You’ll now be able to perform Combo Dot Fusion, allowing you to breed creatures who have fewer dots with those that have more to create more powerful versions of your weaker creatures. It’s a great way to bolster your collection.

In addition to all of that, there are a lot of new events happening this month, including all new Summon events. Join in the new Seasonal Quest, Class Mateys, from September 18th to October 1st, and be sure to catch the “School of Hard Knocks” Summon Event for a chance to see the new Legendary Creature, Asura, from September 29th to October 1st.

We hope you’re prepared for a new season of fresh Creature Quest fun, whether you’re a new or returning player. There’s never been a better time to join in and you can find Creature Quest free to download on Google Play, the App Store, and Amazon App Store.
