The free update, Version 1.3.0, introduces Sandalphon, a new playable character. Known as the protector of the Sky Realm, Sandalphon originally appeared in the Granblue Fantasy browser game as the leader of the four primarchs, angelic beings governing the four elements. Players can unlock Sandalphon by completing specific in-game requirements or by purchasing his Character Expansion Set as paid DLC.

The update also adds three challenging quests featuring powerful boss-level monsters. Additionally, Lucilius, the formidable foe from the Version 1.1.0 update, returns in an even more menacing form in a new quest titled “Zero,” promising to challenge even the most experienced players.

Photo Mode
