Legendary Champions Announced by Aeria Games
Aeria Games has announced a new MMORPG called Legendary Champions. Developed by Userjoy Technology, the game promises to mix traditional MMORPG gameplay elements with exciting DoTa style 5v5 PvP matches.
Players will be able to create their own character, level it up, complete quests, and explore the game world as in other MMORPGs. Once players are high enough in level, they can participate in special PvP matches where their characters transform into one of over 60 historical and mythological heroes. Some of the heroes available include Dracula, King Arthur, Beowulf, and Lu Bu. Legendary Champions draws heavily from the traditions of both Eastern and Western cultures to create an interesting game world.
But that’s just part of what the game offers. There will also be dungeons to clear, PKs to watch out for in the open PvP environment, and much more. Legendary Champions is scheduled to enter closed beta testing sometime in the late summer of 2010. No precise date is set yet, so check back for more information as it becomes available.
