'Shadowbane' - Ship Date & New Web Site Launch

by Rainier on Jan. 10, 2003 @ 12:44 a.m. PST

Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge. It combines immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development.
The company has unveiled the Chronicle of Strife, an extensive community site for Shadowbane players. Besides daily announcements and updates, the Chronicle of Strife features in-depth details of Shadowbane races, classes and disciplines, interviews with the developers and an encyclopedia containing the lore of Aerynth. The site also features a newspaper-styled College of Heralds in which community members report on the evolving politics, religion, war, commerce and other events occurring in the live game world. Ubi Soft has also re-launched Shadowbane.com with a new look and updated information about the game.

Since its launch last year, the Shadowbane beta test has attracted tens of thousands of players. The company is targeting a March 25th ship date for Shadowbane and plans to continue to expand its beta test over the coming months.

Shadowbane has been called "The Next Great Online RPG" by Computer Gaming World. The game offers online gamers an unparalleled challenge that combines role-playing and strategy. Shadowbane is the first MMO to offer a Dynamic World Model, in which players' actions and decisions permanently change the history, politics and landscape of the game. For the very first time in an MMO, players will be able to determine how the game evolves by building and managing cities, organizing armies, and laying siege to other player-owned kingdoms.

Check out the re-launched Shadowbane Web site.
