'Shadowbane' - Laugh out Loud!

by Rainier on April 4, 2002 @ 9:47 p.m. PST

Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge. It combines immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development.
The "Laugh out Loud" contest is an unique opportunity for Shadowbane fans to have fun with the story's very dark and mysterious elements in a satirical and humorous way. Fans should try and highlight those elements that make Shadowbane unique, and use their creativity to write the best script. Winners will be chosen on May 10, 2002. The grand prizewinner will receive a Shadowbane beta account, any Ubi Soft game available at time of winning, and an autographed copy of Shadowbane signed by the Developers of Wolfpack Studios. One runner-up and three honorable mention prizes will also be chosen from the entries. For more information on official contest rules, please visit the official site.

Developed by Wolfpack Studios, Shadowbane represents the evolution of persistent online games by offering gamers a unique MMORPG experience that combines role-playing and strategic elements. As the first MMO to offer a Dynamic World Model, players' actions and decisions permanently change the history, politics and landscape of the game. Players are challenged to utilize both role playing and strategic elements for city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development. Shadowbane's unique features, such as its grief log, kill on site list, bounty hunters and player locator greatly enhance player accountability and bring the overall MMO experience to a new level. The game has been in closed beta stage since January 2002 and is targeted to ship in Fall 2002.
