Major Patch for Earth Eternal
The folks over at Sparkplay Media have released patch 0.8.5 for their browser based free MMORPG, Earth Eternal. As the patch number suggests, Earth Eternal is still in open beta with the release date of version 1.0 still unannounced.
So what’s new? The biggest addition is a massive new dungeon called ‘The Down Below.’ This dungeon was designed for groups of 5 players in the 33-36 level range. It can be found deep in MIdlands on the border of New Badari and Grunes Tal. The other new feature is the ability to remap hotkeys which should help Earth Eternal feel even more like a traditional client based MMORPG.
This new patch gives players the perfectly opportunity to try Earth Eternal, it has high production value and will shattered your preconceived notions of what a browser based game can do. Read the full change log below.
