PARIS, FRANCE – December 14, 2004 – Nevrax, developer of the ground-breaking massively multiplayer online role-playing game The Saga of Ryzom, announced the release of the next chapter in the ever-evolving game.
Chapter Two will be rolled out in three installments, the first of which was released today. Today's patch introduces unique items for players to acquire, as well as named "boss" monsters.
"This installment to Atys' dynamic storyline will give players a renewed sense of awe and wonder," said David Cohen-Corval, CEO of Nevrax. "Improving upon the already vibrant gameplay and its lush living environment, part one of Chapter Two is just the first taste of things to come as Atys continues to evolve and grow."
The second installment of Chapter Two is scheduled for release on December 21st, 2004, with the third installment to follow shortly after on January 6th, 2005. "The coming installments will add player-versus-player combat (PvP) in designated areas of Atys, mounts, a player encyclopedia, the first "rite" missions together with their associated awards, and much, much more. We are very excited about the integration of these new features," added Cohen-Corval.
About the Saga of Ryzom
Three generations ago, the proud civilizations of Atys perished in the Great Swarming, when hordes of Kitins swept from the Prime Roots and wrought war and genocide. Now it is time to reclaim your heritage. Join forces with thousands of others, master the arts of sorcery, war, and tradecraft, and re-forge the destiny of your people. The secrets of the past have been lost, but The Saga of Ryzom has just begun.
Called "a serious contender in the fantasy-MMOG market," by GameSpy and "the prescription against staid and tired MMORPGs" by Computer Gaming World, and deemed 2004's "Best MMO of E3" by WarCry Network, The Saga of Ryzom launched smoothly into North America and Europe in September of this year.
