'Guardians Of Ember' Honors Veteran Players, Open Beta Next Week

by Rainier on March 14, 2019 @ 1:10 p.m. PDT

Guardians of Ember is a combination of hack’n slash and traditional MMORPG with a focus on action-oriented combat in PVE and PVP as well as near endless character optimization.

Guardians of Ember offers a classic hack and slash experience with enormous hordes of enemies, deep crafting and enchanting systems, strong questline and exciting boss battles, a housing system and the unique dual-class system.

After years of war the world of Olyndale has descended into chaos.

As a Guardian of Ember, your brotherhood marks the last line of defense against a dark menace. Sinister forces threaten the land and can only be stopped by the ancient Ember. The future of Olyndale lies on your shoulders. It is your fate - and your duty - to retrieve the magic stone and bring back peace to Olyndale.

Choose from six different classes and extend your skill set by selecting a secondary class after reaching level 15. A variety of 58 different regions with over 60 randomized and challenging dungeons await, where you battle against monsters, mortals and the living dead during your crusade to retrieve the Ember; different PvP modes as well as more than 300 skills and thousands of items will guarantee hours of exciting gameplay, extended by regular content updates.

Gameforge has announced the Veterans’ Rewards program aimed at benefiting the player community of the game’s original paid release under publisher Insel Games. A precious bundle of contents awaits returning players later this week, ensuring a warm welcome to the new-and-improved and now Free-to-Play Guardians of Ember — which launches in Open Beta next week!

“At Gameforge, we strongly value our community across all of our titles,” said Botond Nemeth, Executive Producer of Gameforge. “We enjoyed working with developer Runewaker on the Veterans’ Rewards program as a way to say thank you to Guardians’ existing players and give them the VIP treatment for being among Olyndale’s earliest heroes. With its impending Open Beta, and commercial release, players around the world will be able to experience Guardians of Ember in its best form yet.”

The Guardians of Ember Veterans’ Rewards program will gift players who created a game account prior to the 2019 Closed Beta with long-awaited and useful items such as the Skill Reset Scroll — which allows players to learn a new skillset without starting a new character.

Today also marks the launch of the Premium Shop, Guardians of Ember’s marketplace where players can purchase additional items using in-game or premium currency. The Premium Shop is accessible to Closed Beta players and will soon be available during the Open Beta. And what would a grand opening be without freebies? The Premium Shop will gift all Guardians of Ember players a bunch of cool items as the Open Beta draws closer.

Interested players that are ready to dive in can head over to the Guardians of Ember official site and sign up today.
