Developer Hotta Studio and publisher Level Infinite’s open-world RPG Tower of Fantasy officially launches the Version 2.5 update “Sound of the Sea” on May 11. A new simulacrum, Gnonno also arrives together with the update.
The Tower of Fantasy 2.5 update brings the deepest, darkest, most treacherous part of the sea to Wanderers, as players now have the ability to explore the Deepsea Caverns of The Dark Source. When Wanderers descend deeper into the mysterious sea, they will have to upgrade their materials through prerequisite missions to withstand the extremely high water pressure that comes with entering The Dark Source.

▍ New Area & Missions
Two new puzzle-solving missions, Trapped Patrol Guard and Inactive Surveillance Guard, will be available in Tower of Fantasy. One unique thing about this area is that the difficulty will increase with Dimension rather than Wanderer level, which will increase the power of encountered enemies and can also grant more rewards for puzzle-solving and chest contents.
Abyssant: Nakya, a massive new World Boss taking the form of a red, spider-like skeleton, will also be introduced.
▍ New Simulacrum, Gnonno
A new physical simulacrum, Gnonno, will be coming to Tower of Fantasy! Inspired by her grandfather, Nuok, who was on the exploration team that discovered Innars, Gnonno also hopes to become an excellent explorer.
Her reputation as a troublemaker and wild persona, however, sometimes gets in the way. Despite knowing the complicated seas like the back of her hand, several years ago she persuaded her best friend to go exploring with her, but only Gnonno returned home safely.
There are many mysteries surrounding the incident, but one thing that is for sure is that Gnonno gained the power to summon a strange, octopus-like creature and command its tentacles. She also uses her Mini Hurricane weapon in her explorations.
▍ Tower of Fantasy New Function: World Level
A new function, World Level, has been added! World Level affects the difficulty of monsters and world bosses on the field, as well as the rewards that can be earned. Raising the world level increases the difficulty level, but also increases the rewards that can be obtained, as well as the drop rate of items from crypt boxes in the field and accessories from world bosses. By setting the world level appropriately, you will be able to earn rewards more efficiently.
▍ Returning User Bonus
Wanderers that are LV 30 or higher and who have not logged in to Tower of Fantasy since 16:00 on April 10, 2023 (Monday) are eligible for the Farewell Dreams returning user bonus!

▍ Tower of Fantasy Version 2.5 Changes
With the implementation of Version 2.5, both the Operation Alliance and Operation Defeat dungeons have been changed. Below is their change log.
■ Changes in the Operation Alliance Dungeon
The dungeons that can be challenged daily have been changed so that one type of dungeon is opened at random. Before challenging a dungeon, explorers can select the difficulty level according to their level and other factors.
Rewards earned will vary depending on the difficulty level selected. In addition, at the sixth and higher difficulty levels, the first clear reward, which is only available once a day, is a piece of SSR volition. In addition, it is also possible to set the main reward, and the probability of these rewards dropping is greatly increased.
■ Changes to the Operation Defeat Dungeon
The bosses that can be defeated each week have been changed to a new specification where one boss is opened at random.
There are two levels of difficulty that can be challenged: Normal and Challenging” and the rewards are almost the same for both levels. However, the Challenging difficulty level offers additional challenge titles and a few additional Operation Common Parts, so that all Wanderers, from beginners to veterans, can now enjoy the contents.
▍ Tower of Fantasy Version 2.5 Event Calendar
The developers have disclosed the event calendar. The main event of Version 2.5 is the Deepsea Treasure Hunt, whereby completing the designated quests, participants will earn points exclusive to the event. A certain amount of points can be exchanged for event progress rewards.
These include pieces of the Azure Heart costume of the popular character Rinya, pieces of the Hanaori Coral skin of the SSR weapon Shadow Weave, dark crystals, Special Coupons, Energy Particles, Icon Frames, and more!
