Legend of Edda to begin Closed Beta Testing September 30
Leading online game publisher, GamesCampus.com, revealed today the closed beta testing dates for its upcoming free-to-play, massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG), Legend of Edda. The game will enter into closed beta testing on September 30, 2010 and continue through October 11, 2010.
Based on the Greek mythological conflict between the Gods of the Olympus and the Titans, Legend of Edda takes players on a journey through a dynamic storyline divided into five unique chapters based on the conflict of two opposing factions. Players will pledge their allegiance to Olympus or Titan from the beginning — prior to character creation — which will play a large role in upcoming PVP and RVR battles.
“Our thriving forum community is already wrestling for a chance to get their hands on this unique and exciting game,” said Uyen Uyen Ton Nu, head of marketing for GamesCampus. “With an enchanting world of myth and lore to explore, hardcore PVP, endless customization, an art style all its own and much more, it is truly a game that should be on every MMORPG players’ wish list.”
Fast-paced PVP battles are the cornerstone of the game and will include intense personal battles, guild battles and player-killing (PK) where opposing factions can attack each other at any time. Additionally, Secret Treasure Wars take place in an RvR environment with the two factions where the winning team is rewarded with powerful skills by their gods. There are also numerous Demi-God quests that encompass obtaining Demi-God points, which later can be redeemed for powerful skills.
Legend of Edda will also offer a deep class system including six options: Warrior, Swordsman, Assassin, Archer, Cleric and Wizard. Players will be able to choose their character’s first class during initial character creation and upgrade to subclasses by completing promotion quests and eventually upgrading to different classes while obtaining greater and more powerful skills. A unique portal system will make transporting among maps and areas seamless and keeps the gameplay flow intense. Players can also look forward to instanced dungeons, seemingly undefeatable monsters, a special pet system, and four varieties of quests!
