Nadirim reveals further game features
After the successful premiere of Nadirim for the press at gamescom 2010, Digital Reality and Twisted Tribe will launch the official Nadirim forum on Wednesday, September 1st, to introduce the gaming community to the Empire of the Eternal Sun. Starting immediately and every week – even after the start of the closed beta in early October 2010 – further zones, character classes, game mechanics, and various mobs will be introduced in depth on the official website and in the new forum.
The first zone to be revealed is the Mountain of Bells: a mystical place which is the centre of many eerie tales and rumours. Only a brave few dare to enter this remote region. Legends say that during the War of 1001 Nights, the army of the caliph was frozen by a mighty spell of the evil Nadir into the stone formations which visually mark the region. The hollow, eerie sound of bells calls to mind their forgotten souls.
Along with experience points, the various zone quests can also earn players achievements, reputation, or special items and will teach them more about the background story of Nadirim. In the Mountain of Bells zone, which can be reached after around 30 hours of game play, players must find the source of the mysterious sound of bells, which holds an important revelation.
At the same time, the official website will also introduce the enigmatic nomads of the desert, one of the five playable character classes available in the game. When the mighty Nadir granted the former thief Anwar his wish for a kingdom full of riches and knowledge, a few desert tribes rejected the genie’s dark gift. Living in harmony with nature, the nomads can train animal companions for combat for other players and control up to three different pets in battle themselves. The nomad is a strong fighter, both in melee and with the bow. In a group, they serve as a supporter, but are also the first choice for solo players, thanks to their animal companions.
After the selection of a character class, an insane djinn is one of the first opponents standing in players’ way in the tutorial. Djinns are mystical beings, who have gone mad through the rule of Nadir and the loss of power, and who attack careless travellers.
