On July 4, 2021, the Lot/Grand To order The US began celebrating its 4th anniversary campaign and Aniplex opened some promotions and limited-time offers for active players. As part of the celebration, Aniplex also debuted a translated version of the Fate/Great Order 4th anniversary memorial video. It was first broadcast during the 4th anniversary of the Japanese edition in 2019.
As previously suggested, the American Fate/Great Order anniversary brings a number of temporary benefits to players. With a “guaranteed summon”, players can pay half price for a special summoning role that contains at least one playable Servant with a rarity of 5 stars. Likewise, Aniplex has permanently increased summoning rewards. Now every ten subpoenas executed automatically yields eleven items, making every 10-roll an 11-roll by default. Other new systems, such as the ability to enhance a Servant’s command cards, were also added.
The most interesting new addition, however, is the series of new playable Servants that have been added. Starting from the anniversary, seven new playable Servants – one for each of the core classes – were added to the permanent summoning pool. Unlike the usual limited availability characters being added to the game, the seven new characters are the opposite of “limited rarity.” Instead, they are all “bronze” Servants of the lowest level: 1- and 2-star Servants. They are also exclusive to the “Friend Point” free call banner, making them accessible to any player. While such Servants are usually only useful for players just starting out who don’t have high rarity Servants, some of the new ones have some unique traits that make them worth picking up and investing resources in.
This is how the Saber class Jason finally arrived in FGO‘s playable roster after nearly four years as a simple story NPC of the Okeanos Singularity. He brings with him a unique ability that blesses his allies and increases in potential when these allies are associated with the Argonauts, Jason’s group of companions from Greek myth. So existing FGO characters like Herakles, Atalante, Medea, and Chiron all benefit from having Jason around. The Caster class Chen Gong has a usability level that belies its 2-star rarity. His Noble Phantasm instantly kills a fellow party member to deal heavy damage to the enemy. This ability to customize a player’s Servant lineup on command has earned him a place even in veteran parties.
In front of Fate/Grand On Order’s US anniversary, Aniplex also showed a trailer highlighting the new characters’ Noble Phantasms.
The Fate/Great Order anniversary celebrations will remain active until July 14, 2021. The game is available immediately on iOS and Android.
