Acclaim Games Releases The Chronicles of Spellborn Closed Beta
Company: Acclaim
Los Angeles, CA (March 13, 2009) – Acclaim Games releases the official game client for download in anticipation of the release for The Chronicles of Spellborn MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). Players anxious to join the game can begin downloading and installing the game on their PC now, so they will be completely ready to play once the game is available.

The first players that will have access to the Closed Beta are handpicked from the Acclaim chats, David Perry’s twitter and Historian’s beta tester list. This first group of players has been limited to 200–500 players to allow thorough game testing. After the first group of players test the game Acclaim will start activating 1,000 new accounts every 12 hours starting on Friday March 14, 2009. Acclaim will activate accounts until they feel the servers are at capacity for the Closed Beta. The first player accounts to be activated will be players that have Acclaim Memberships and then at random from Acclaim’s user base.

Starting March 13th, 2009 check your Acclaim ‘Account Summary’ to see if you have Closed Beta access: it will say ‘Spellborn Status Active’. If your account is ACTIVE launch the game client and login.

The Closed Beta will be available for a limited time and Acclaim hasn’t decided if they will refresh player accounts once the game transitions into Open Beta. During the Closed Beta premium subscriptions will not be available for purchase. For game updates check the website or follow the Spellborn twitter at

What Lies Hidden, Must Be Found
In The Chronicles of Spellborn players enter an impressive online game world containing scenic landscapes, majestic cities and the remnants of a shattered world. Alone or with a party of friends, PC adventurers step into a fantasy realm consisting of varied shards: habitable pieces of the destroyed world floating in the magical Deadspell Storm. Those who want to prevail in the involving combat of The Chronicles of Spellborn need to apply their mighty arsenal of skills actively with mouse and keyboard. Battles with bloodthirsty creatures, intelligent hostile factions and other human opponents in Player vs. Player battles are waiting. An innovative and tactically challenging combat system with third-person shooter-like controls and a unique rotating Skill Deck provides a breath of fresh air amidst the more traditional MMORPGs. Thanks to a largely extended Unreal Engine 2.5, The Chronicles of Spellborn boasts stunning 3D graphics, spectacular effects and countless elaborate details.
