Additionally, Saga brings the excitement of collectible gaming to the online environment. Rather than pay subscription fees, in Saga you pay as little or as much as you decide. Just as in collectible card or miniatures games, players can buy ‘booster packs’ of random troops and spells, which are traded and customized to create the strategic army of choice for each player.

Saga is set in a persistent world built by Dallan Christensen (Lead Programmer of Starcraft: Brood War). Events in the world of Saga go on 24/7 as your kingdom continues to function when you’re offline- your resources continue collecting, your kingdom continues to defend against enemy assassins and espionage attempts, and guild wars progress as your friends and enemies play.

Players will be able to create and reserve their login names for release. Silverlode Interactive President, Jason Faller has promised a promotion during the Open Beta period that will give players a discount if they choose to pre-register.
