Save the world from the Shadow of Soul starting Spring 2015BERLIN, Dec. 9, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Echo of Soul, the upcoming free-to-play fantasy MMORPG, thrusts players into the aftermath of an ancient war between the Giants and the Gods. The mortal humans are now tasked to join the fight, using Soul fragments to defeat the evil Giants. Those brave enough to shoulder the responsibility can sign up for the beta and view the stunning new trailer released today by Aeria Games in advance of the game's release early next year.
According to the legend, Odin - the King of the Gods - was unable to purify the lingering evil known as the Shadow Soul, a remaining essence from the war with the Giants. Instead, he split it into six despicable pieces: Arrogance, Sloth, Jealousy, Rage, Despair, and Discord then scattered them to the farthest corners of the world, hoping that they would never reunite. Despite these noble efforts, the corruption proved too powerful and spread over the world -- now, the Giants are threatening to renew their war to take control of the world. Odin is seeking help from the mortals to become his Soulkeepers and cleanse the world of the Shadow Soul's corruption.
As the God's chosen ones, MMO players will be able to pick between five different classes in the game: Warrior, Guardian, Rogue, Sorceress, and Archer. No matter which class, gamers who step into the world of Echo of Soul are faced with the promise of an exciting endeavor with thousands of hours' worth of PvP and PvE content, including quests, raids and challenges. Providing an incredible sense of freedom and adventure, the game is also available on-the-go with a dedicated mobile app that includes chat and item trading features.
Developed by key members of the team behind the award-winning MMO Lineage II, Echo of Soul immerses players with rich visuals, an epic soundtrack, and a vast and detailed landscape. Set to launch on PC in spring next year, Echo of Soul will be free-to-play and free-to-download. MMO enthusiasts can register for the closed beta, get their hands on exclusive fan kits and stay up-to-date on news surrounding the game via the official teaser site, Facebook page, Twitter and YouTube.
