Fans of large-scale action-based PvP have something to rally around in the form of Fantasy Earth Zero, with the team at Gamepot USA working behind the scenes to make the game the best it can be. The game's first major update since the May launch has just hit the servers, and it looks to be quite a major infusion of new content. Dubbed "First Strike," the most prominent alteration is the addition of Nation Weapon quests, allowing players to hunt down a weapon emblematic of their nation of choice to help smite their enemies.

There's more going on than simply new armaments, however, especially with the revamped player tutorial and the addition of a party system to allow players to stay in touch across the various points of conflict. This update also kicks off the meta-game event known as "The Revolutionary War," which the team promises will span both the battles within the game as well as social sites such as Facebook. It's clear that the people behind Fantasy Earth Zero have quite a bit of interesting material in the works, and this update -- as well as the ongoing double experience event -- are just the tip of the iceberg.
