Asheron’'s Call 2: Legions is an expansion to Turbine's online massively multiplayer fantasy RPG Asheron’'s Call 2: Fallen Kings. In the world of Dereth, a new continent has been discovered – along with an ominous new evil that threatens to consume the entire land and everything within it.

After an extensive beta program, including feedback from thousands of online gamers, Turbine has put the finishing touches on the long-awaited expansion pack. The forthcoming game provides players with an ambitious new storyline and content for hours and hours of additional online adventuring.
