About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Asheron's Call 2: Legions' Marches into Stores

Asheron’'s Call 2: Legions is an expansion to Turbine's online massively multiplayer fantasy RPG Asheron’'s Call 2: Fallen Kings. In the world of Dereth, a new continent has been discovered – along with an ominous new evil that threatens to consume the entire land and everything within it.

The long-awaited expansion pack to Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings® marks the first game to be funded, developed and published entirely by Turbine. With Legions, Turbine has taken the first of many steps beyond its original role as a contract developer and added the responsibilities of marketing and launch efforts, effectively positioning the company as a full-scale publisher.

"Launching Asheron's Call 2: Legions is the beginning of a new era for Turbine," said Tom Nichols, vice president of marketing, Turbine, Inc. "Not only will we continue to develop great games based on some of the world's most compelling properties, but as a publisher we will now be able to oversee the entire process. Every step in delivering a title is now under Turbine's direction and is held up to the company's high standards."

Turbine is working with Station Publishing to distribute Asheron's Call 2: Legions in North America. Turbine also partnered with Codemasters to distribute the game throughout Europe.
