BUENOS AIRES, Argentina & EVERETT, Wash.--February 27, 2013--GameSamba and NGD Studios announced today that the popular 3D fantasy MMORPG Champions of Regnum will makes its debut in Steam's Free to Play category in all territories where the game is available. North American players will access the game on Steam via their GameSamba accounts. Additionally, the game's extensive expansion and revamp will also launch today.
"NGD Studios' relationship with Steam dates back to the successful release of our co-operative top down shooter Bunch of Heroes. We're very happy and proud to have our fully revamped Free to Play MMORPG available on Steam" said Andrés Chilkowski, Studio Director of NGD Studios.
"As the exclusive publisher of Champions of Regnum in North America, we're excited about all the new developments in the game," said Dr. Scott Wong, president and co-founder of GameSamba. "Creating high quality play experiences for our community is our first priority, and we think the players will be thrilled."
With significantly restructured gameplay mechanics as well as new features and content, Champions of Regnum is an evolution of the Realms Online and Regnum Online franchises into a single global brand. Champions of Regnum is the third major expansion in the franchise. The new features, completely restructured gameplay mechanics, and added content mark the game's continuing evolution, which is also reflected in the updated game title and logo.
In addition to all of the new content and revamped gameplay that players enjoyed in the recent VIP Preview event, today's launch adds a new Capture the Flag instanced mode and a new map for Team Deathmatch, as well as an updated Steam client. The character faces have been completely redesigned, and it is now possible for players to gain Champion Coins by winning matches in the Battlezone modes. A Hall of Fame to honor the most glorious Champions of the Battlezones has also been added.
Other major changes in Champions of Regnum include:
° A complete overhaul of the Invasion system to now involve a "Capture the Flag"-like system of gathering enemy Relics and summoning Ancient Dragons.
° New Instances with a corresponding Matchmaking System open up a universe of possibilities for each hero to stand out and become one of the Champions.
° New visually stunning Battlezones designed especially for team play increase the opportunity for Realm v Realm (RvR) combat in the game and include new game modes such as Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and more.
