Cookie Jar’s Magi-Nation online role-playing adventure is based on the popular children’s animated television series of the same name, which follows the adventures of 15-year-old Tony Jones, an average teen from Earth who finds himself mysteriously transported to the magical world of Magi-Nation. The free-to-play, web-based game is geared for children ages 8-14 and incorporates a micropayment model that allows players the flexibility to upgrade their gaming experience.
Key features of the Magi-Nation: Battle for the Moonlands expansion includes:
- True Multi-Player World with In-Game Chat: Several dozen players can now see each other in each of the game’s landscapes and chat with each other via Magi-Nation’s extensive chat system.
- Expanded PVP with Leader Boards: Magi-Nation: Battle for the Moonlands’ expanded player-versus-player (PVP) experience enables players that have reached at least Level 5 to challenge one another by simply double clicking on a player’s icon. Once in PVP, players “magine” Dream Creatures that engage in battle to determine the winner. New leader boards highlight who the top Magi-Nation PVP players are each week, while a separate board lists the all-time PVP champions.
- More than Double the Area to Explore: Battle for the Moonlands’ players now have even more land to explore with the addition of seven new landscapes that more than double the original area.
- New items: As part of the major Battle for the Moonlands update, more than 30 completely new items have been added to the in-game shops, including gems that restore energy between battles, boost experience received in battles and increase an avatar’s skills.
Specific details and dates regarding the exact transfer will be announced shortly. In the meantime, additional information and sign-up details are available on the official website.
