We'll be candid with this; we aren't too keen on publishing AdventureQuest Worlds news since they claimed responsibility for gaming giant Zynga's success. That said, this update was rather interesting.
Players whose characters die in AdventureQuest Worlds will face a penalty far worse than character death itself.
Boring ads, apparently.
The long-running grey death scene has now been replaced with onscreen advertisements. For now, the ads are focused on other Artix products; however, we could totally see them tossing in those high-paying but low-conversion ads for Korean singles dating.
Apparently, "members" can disable the death ads.
