Vanguard: Saga of Heroes (PC)
“From day one, 'Vanguard' was created with the vision of developing an MMO with an unparalleled feeling of immersion,” said Brad McQuaid, CEO of Sigil Games Online. “To accomplish this, we included innovative features that break the shackles of the traditional MMO experience. Our diplomacy system, for example, is one of many original concepts we employed to invigorate the MMO game play experience.”
“Vanguard: Saga of Heroes” features stunning environments reminiscent of classic fantasy oil paintings, as well as three fully-developed layers of gameplay (diplomacy, adventuring and crafting), along with a comprehensive character creation tool. Three vast continents are available for exploration, and players will enjoy a fully immersive experience as they delve into new lands riddled with powerful items, dangerous enemies, and boundless adventure. As players reach higher levels, they can traverse the world freely on flying dragons, voyaging across far-reaching lands in a breathtaking, non-instanced world.
