    Hello there Celeste players!

    As promised on our latest Discord announcement, we are bringing you a quick sneak peek at our upcoming content pack, Rostam in Zabol!

    Travel back to the ancient lands of Persia, and to the city of Zabol, the birthplace of Rostam, the mighty Persian hero of myth and legend.

    Thanks in great part to @Kire we are going to have an entire new Region, new Gear and many new Quests coming soon!

    • New Legendary Quests
    • Unit Micro Arena minigame Quests (both vs the AI and against a human opponent!)
    • New Champion Mode Quests (more details below)
    • New Custom AI

    New Legendary Quests
    ====================
    Coming with this content pack, we will be having 7 new Legendary Quests, all set in a completely new and unique Persian-themed environment. Follow Rostam around in the hot deserts of south-east Persia and bring glory to the mighty Persian Empire!

    Unit Micro Arena Quests
    =====================
    Arena_Teaser.png
    If you're more into micro-managing your units and "minigame" type quests, then these are perfect for you!

    Whether you'd like to hone your skills against the AI or go head-to-head with a friend, you can play these Unit Micro Quests in the Zabol Arena. You will be given a pre-determined group of units, that will be matched by the opponent. Controlling your units properly and utilizing the unit counter system will be the key to victory here!

    Note that these quests will be played in Champion Mode, so that you will only have to rely on your own skill to come out on top!

    Champion Mode Quests
    ====================
    Champ_Mode_Quests.png
    Many of you have already seen some small Quests being played in Champion Mode, where level and gear doesn't matter. So far we only had those Quests in places such as the Roman Campaign, and only in small scale.

    For the first time ever, we are having Champion Mode Quests on a large scale. These will be nearly identical to the Legendary version of the Quests, except that the quest will be played in Champion Mode, so you don't need to have a full set of Legendary Gear (or any kind of Gear, really) to be able to complete these Quests!

    Furthermore, since everyone plays on a completely equal setting as every other player, this provides a great opportunity to compete with your friends in these Quests!

    Who can finish the Quests in the fastest time? Fewest units trained? Most buildings destroyed? Only one way to find out!


    New Custom AI
    =============

    AI_Teaser.png
    Quests in this content pack will feature an all-new Custom AI: Milk.

    This AI (developed mostly by @theace9 with help from @Kire ) has been optimized to do many actions much more efficiently and better than the currently existing AIs, providing a more close-to-human-opponent experience for players.

    PF2K's Personal Note: Don't ask me why it's called Milk. :confused:

    We are very close to finishing this content pack and expect to release it shortly after the Summer Event is over.

    All current and future content will stay 100% free and accessible to everyone.

    ========
    Thank you so much for reading, and we will see you all next time!

      Can you share more details about the champion mode quests? Difficulty "nearly identical" to legendary quest, but done without gear means that, right there, it's going to be extremelly difficult to beat these. "Awesome rewards" what exactly is it going to be? Only cosmetic rewards, or legendary crates?

      The players wont be the only ones in champion mode, the AI will too. So they won't have elite units and those high multipliers etc, gear doesnt affect them either. I havent played it too much yet but i think its about the same difficulty, if anything a little easier. rewards are subject to change o_O

      It's not just legendary quests, but also arena quests akin to what the Romans have.

      Well, it's 7 new legendary quests and one mini-game arena quest. For a pve player that is not hardcore enough to do legendary quests, there's not much to see here, I can see what Comecudemod said. I don't have the numbers/statistics, but I can guess that only a relatively small percentage of the players are able to solo the legendary quests and also a small percentage of the total players is doing coop quests.

      In a way it feels as if that new content is being added only for those few who are insanely geared and can solo the legendary quests, while not adding normal quests anymore for the rest (majority) of players.

      I'm personally looking forward to Champion Mode Quests, see how this plays out.

      Decided to add non-legendary versions of the quests aswell with an elite mode, like the Lodi pack :)
