Company: Acclaim
Los Angeles, CA (March 20, 2009) – Acclaim Games is pleased to announce the start of Open Beta testing for The Chronicles of Spellborn MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). With a successful round of Closed Beta testing just completed, Acclaim opens a new PvE server and activates the Premium Subscription service as more players are invited to experience The Chronicles of Spellborn in Open Beta.

To join Open Beta for The Chronicles of Spellborn, players can activate their Acclaim accounts on the activation page located at: http://spellborn.acclaim.com/ActivateGameTracker.html

For the Spellborn Open Beta, a new PvE (Player vs Environment) server called “Dorzhan” will be opened. Meanwhile, players who want to experience PvP (Player vs Player) action can join the “Deiquonril” server. And with the transition from Closed to Open Beta, all player accounts will be wiped so everyone must start their characters again from scratch.

In addition, Premium Subscription service will be enabled allowing players to experience the full game past the Free to Play zone restrictions. Premium Subscriptions will be available for purchase from the Spellborn website, with a special limited-time introductory pricing offer on 30, 90, and 180 day subscriptions.

A Live Spellborn Community Webinar Chat will be held on Friday March 20 at 3pm PST to give players a chance to communicate directly with the Spellborn team. In attendance to discuss the game and answer question will be Howard Marks (Acclaim CEO), David Perry (Acclaim CCO), El Drijver (Lead Game Designer), and Matthew Florianz (Sound Designer). To participate, players can reserve a webinar seat at: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/598716576

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.
