New Costume Animations
New Animation Updates
Update 2 at 08-14-2019.
It is remarkably light on information, with no trailer for the Event as of yet, and no NP animation videos for the new Servants either. Still there are some tidbits of news:
- The event launches at 08-14 18:00 JST, with maintenance at 13:00 JST.
- Fuuma Kotarou and Merlin are set to receive an animation update.
- 8 new Summer Craft Essences can be seen.
- Like the Case Files Event, the Event Shop Bonus CE grants 15% chance for a bonus enemy on top of the base un-improved 25% chance for a bonus enemy.
- In addition, content is gradually unlocked until 08-26.
- The main feature of the event seems to a mixture of betting QP in normal Free Quests, unlocking Main Quest progression with Event Currency and participating with special Fever Tickets in time-sensitive Casino missions that reward more QP.
Pre-Campaign Information Update
Update 1 at 08/09/2019: The pre-campaign news post is out now.
- Apparantly the 4th Summer Event will feature a showdown between 7 Swimsuit Swordmasters. In addition, Katsushika Hokusai (Saber) has been announced as the welfare for the Las Vegas event.
- Her Servant page will be updated with release information as the event is unlocked.
- Oddly enough, out of all the Summer-related bonus Servant, Passionlip is the only non-Summer/non-summer Costumed Servant. Hmm, whatever could that mean?
Original Post: The 4th Anniversary of FGO is in full swing at the moment, and while the main FGO news stream is still to come, some news about the upcoming Summer event has already been shared on the stream.
The launch date of the next Summer event is still vague, but it is estimated to be launched from mid August (although that could well mean very soon). In addition, Masters can attend the Summer 4 event even with only Fuyuki cleared. (So, if these Servants caught your interest, you can play the event and hoard some of the upcoming anniversary Saint Quartz).
The event appears to be set in Las Vegas!
None of the Servants below have had their classes revealed so far, perhaps we'll find out tomorrow. In addition, only 1 Noble Phantasm has been revealed so far.
