The update, titled Alliance Unbound, features new instances set in a space alien invasion backdrop and an expansion of the Ellin Forest where players can travel back in time to revisit the fallout of the Black Mage invasion. Players can accumulate rocks called nebulites that can be fused onto a player's weapon to bolster their stats and abilities.

The update also revamps the Resistance class and updates the Aran and Evan character skills. For more information on the upcoming update, head to the official North American portal. For more information on the MMO game itself, check out GameSpot's article.
