Sharpen your weapons -- Dynasty Blades is back with new and improved hack n’ slash stylings. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms-inspired action MMORPG introduces a bunch of fun new features in its latest update.

The latest update, version 2.3, introduces a new hero in the form of Zhang He, one of the Five Generals of Wei. Zhang He is a mage that controls the power of fire.

If slinging fireballs doesn’t excite you, perhaps you’ll be happier to learn that Dynasty Blades is also introducing mounts in today’s update. Now you can ride into battle astride a horse, tiger, jaguar, or many other beasties that can also give you helpful stat buffs.

Two new weekly events are being added to the game’s calendar, as well. The Drop & Exchange event will boost the likelihood you’ll receive rare items for clearing a stage, while the Treasure Plunder event allows you to enter a lottery for some truly excellent prizes.

All told, that’s a pretty hefty update. On top of the fresh content, Dynasty Blades is getting a few system tweaks to ensure the game runs smoothly. Among them, you’ll be able to buy back lost resources from the day before for a small sum of gold or diamonds.

If you want to see what all of the excitement is about, you can find Dynasty Blades on both iOS and Android.
