Maestia Officially Launches
Gravity Interactive has announced the official commercial launch of Maestia.
Maestia’s launch includes a new zone type originally previewed during open beta, in which players can fight monsters in PvE combat during the day, but at night, face off against others in 30 vs 30 PvP for Divinity Points (used to buy epic gear). The launch also begins a Summer Festival event, with raffle tickets to be found for in-game and real-world prizes; plus opens the game’s cash shop which will include buffs, vanity items, and more.
Maestia plans to expand again in September with a content update that will increase the level cap, add new zones, and tweak the user interface.
Gravity Interactive also publishes Requiem and Ragnarok Online.

MAESTIA:RISE OF KELEDUS EXPLODES INTO COMMERCIAL LAUNCH
Numerous Events, Cash Shop Debut, And New Features!
Marina del Rey, California – July 31, 2012 – Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), today officially kicked off the full commercial launch of Maestia: Rise of Keledus. A traditional fantasy title that’s both familiar yet different from other online titles, whether players are into solo or group content or wants to pwn in PVP, Maestia’s got something for you! By choosing to be a Guardian or a Knight, players begin an exciting battle against Keledus by accessing http://www.playmaestia.com/, and Registering to be part of the exciting action.
“As promised, Maestia’s open beta was short, intense, and full of excitement. Now we’re ready for the full launch, with plenty of exciting content in store for new and returning players,” said Jay Choi, Chief Operating Officer at Gravity Interactive. “We’ve also got some amazing plans for Maestia throughout the year, and we’re looking forward to revealing frequent content updates for all levels.”
Play it YOUR way.
Maestia’s Prayer System allows players to access the main storyline without having to run from zone to zone. Use this psychic link to the Goddess to explore a quest story rich with lore and a variety of goals. Additional quests can be found in towns, so players are still able to focus on a single zone, or move from location to location.
Also unveiled during open beta and running full steam at launch is a new style of zone, mixing PVE and PVP action for a true whirlwind of activity! During the game day, these special zones are filled with monsters, and are open to questing, exploring, and farming materials for the crafting system. During the night hours, the zone becomes a massive PVP hub, where players can earn Divinity Points (DP), which are used to purchase high end gear. These battles are currently set to 30 vs. 30, but can be expanded to as high as 80 vs. 80!
Prefer to tackle massive dungeons? Players can earn DP by running dungeons solo, by creating a group with fellow players, or by gathering a full party using the Mercenary system. Recruit offline players who have volunteered their services, and solo even the toughest dungeons with a full array of allies.
With the completion of the Open Beta Test and the shift into our commercial launch, the Summer Festival event has begun! Special boxes will drop from event monsters, which have a chance of giving raffle tickets. Turning in these tickets will earn the user in-game items and enter each user into a raffle for awesome real-life prizes.
The cash shop is also open for business! Acquire a variety of vanity items, buffs to level quickier, and other character improvement items. To celebrate launch, for a limited time monsters will also drop raffle tickets to turn in for some awesome prizes, including cash shop items.
Maestia’s never standing still: a current content expansion is currently slated for September, which will include a level cap increase, numerous new zones, and further UI tweaks. Players can watch the official Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/PlayMaestia
