Rise of Immortals is set in the world of Graxia, 300 years after the events of “Guardians of Graxia,” Petroglyph’s fantasy-based PC game released last year. Rise of Immortals features the popular action-strategy gameplay of traditional MOBA games, but adds enhanced socialization features, along with persistent character progression – a first for the MOBA genre. Instead of an account-based leveling system, players can advance their Immortals through a diverse, persistent skill tree, customizing and upgrading the characters to unlock unique abilities that persist from match to match.
In addition to today’s unveil of Rise of Immortals, Petroglyph also announced that signups are now open for the game’s upcoming closed beta test. Players interested in trying this innovative and enhanced MOBA-style game can apply today to be part of the online testing by visiting http://www.riseofimmortals.com. Petroglyph will continue to expand the beta test over the next several weeks, prior to the game’s official launch.
Petroglyph opened the doors to its free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game, Rise of Immortals, for an open beta test, commencing the final phase of testing and development before the game’s release in the coming weeks.
In addition, Petroglyph also announced today that anyone who participates in the open beta test will receive 1,000 Petroglyph Coins at commercial launch (worth over $10), and an exclusive Immortal skin. The Immortal skin, a dazzling gold version of the robot-suited Psychozen, named “The King of Bling,” will be available exclusively for open beta testers to enjoy both during the open beta, and as a complementary add-on to their account at launch.
“Petroglyph, with the help of thousands of our fans, has been testing the game in a closed beta for several months now. We're finally ready to show the game to the world as we polish it for launch,” said Steve Wetherill, executive producer of Rise of Immortals for Petroglyph. “Beta players will see ground-breaking features that we’ve added to the game and which are new to the MOBA genre. From player versus environment maps to character persistence, we’re confident that both MOBA newcomers and MOBA fans will find Rise of Immortals to be a fantastic new game.”
Anyone interested in participating in the open beta test can register, and will be immediately invited to download the game and start playing.
