The Quest - official Mission Pack 'Islands of Ice and Fire'

COMING SOON - "The Islands of Ice and Fire" is designed as an official expansion pack for The Quest.

You can continue to play The Quest with your existing character(s) to explore new areas and quests after you've purchased the mission pack. However, if you don't have The Quest, you can also play the expansion as a standalone game, consisting of the expansion areas.

Expected launch price is 3.99 USD

Ok so I guess I really need to get on with my quest playing. Everytime I try I get lost, then get in a fight, and then finally....I die I haven't played an RPG since FFXII which was ehhh. So my skills are pretty horrendous

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Thus far, "The Quest" has not only been my favorite Itouch game...but my favorite game on any platform. I'm really excited about the upcoming expansion pack and happy to hear that we'll be able to import our characters from the existing game.

If the expansion pack is successful is there any chance that subsequent packs will be released?

It's cool there's an expansion and all but I don't think I'm gonna get it because I would have to pay for it.

This is awesome! I am sad to say that I have not gotten so far in the Quest....but it is my favorite RPG game so far on iphone.

The new expansion looks amazing. Graphics look great. I am curious.....

1. If you have The Quest already, and want to continue the character you are playing. Will you have to WORK your way to the new areas? as opposed to....

2. If you DONT have The Quest....you can just start off in the new areas?

1. The new areas will be instantly accessible. However, they have been designed for high level characters, so it is advised that you complete the base game first.

2. If you don't have the Quest, you'll only be able to play in the expansion areas with a pregenerated high level character.

This expansion has not been originally designed to be a standalone game, because it was created before we ported the Quest to the iphone. That option will only be available to satisfy Apple's policy about iphone apps.

The expansion is designed for level 14/15 characters.

Within a month, hopefully. It really depends on Apple. We hope they will not find faults with the way we enabled the expansion to "enable" itself in the base game.
