Shadowbane has been meticulously developed over the last four years - cultivating a worldwide fan base of several hundred thousand - in an effort to create what Computer Gaming World has called "The Next Great Online RPG." IGN.com has rated Shadowbane as one of their most anticipated MMOs of 2003,
while Wired magazine says "Shadowbane redefines the massively multiplayer online role-playing genre."

Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights of possibility 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.
