Aeria Games Creates New Closed Beta Tester Spots for Kingdom Heroes
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - May 19, 2010 - Ancient Chinese General Sun Tzu once said, "Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted." Players won't have to worry about being the late to the battlefield in Aeria Games' massively multiplayer online game (MMO) Kingdom Heroes - Aeria has announced that in response to the number of requests for closed beta testers, it will invite a larger second wave into the game.

"Since there was so much demand to get into the closed beta initially, we've decided to make a second round of invites, much larger than the original," said Keith Kawahata, producer at Aeria Games & Entertainment. "For an MMO, Kingdom Heroes boasts a unique blend of strategy and a player versus player (PvP) world based in Ancient China; we're pleased that so many players took notice that we had to expand our closed beta plans."

Kingdom Heroes, the newest MMO from Aeria Games, reaches new heights in free-to-play games. Here are some of the features players can look forward to in the game:

Epic Kingdom-wide Combat: players can engage in massive battles over land and sea
Ship-Based PvP: form player crews on the high seas to take down enemy ships
Siege Engines: raze cities to the ground using the awesome power of ballistae, catapults, trebuchets and more
Revolutionary Guild PvP: cooperate as a guild to take down and control fortresses, cities and trade hubs
Resource Management: control a city for long enough, and players can become administrators, collecting taxes on every transaction in that city
Customizable Armies: customize non-player character (NPC) armies with the discarded armor of enemies to give them additional strength in battle

Kingdom Heroes is now taking additional signups for CBT. Closed beta spots are limited and will be given away on a first-come first-served basis. Aeria Games members can sign up on the Kingdom Heroes website at , and first-time players can register as members for free.
