Microsoft Game Studios and Turbine Entertainment Software today announced that Asheron's Call 2 Fallen Kings, the first next-generation massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), has gone gold and will ship to stores in North America on November 22. Asheron's Call 2 Fallen Kings will be available for an estimated retail price of $49.99 (U.S.) with a monthly subscription of $12.95.
The dynamic world of Dereth has been reborn, and players who first set foot on its soil will find a drastically different version of the world that they were used to in Asheron's Call. The denizens of Dereth have fled deep into shelters, and the land above them has become twisted under dark waves of chaos for hundreds of years. After generations of hiding in fear, the three civilized races -- the Humans, the Tumeroks, and the Lugians -- forge an alliance, setting aside their past enmity to work side by side. All of the races will strive to reclaim their ancestral lands from the evil that has flourished in the ruins left by the devastation. Together they will rebuild the world, and face an uncertain future.
Microsoft Game Studios and Turbine are dedicated to building, changing and enhancing the Asheron's Call 2 online environment to offer players a compelling experience, month after month. New monthly episodes will feature an evolving, epic storyline, introduction of new features like dungeons, quests and monsters, and environments that change in response to player behavior.
Asheron's Call 2 Fallen Kings, the sequel to the popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Asheron's Call, will advance the MMORPG genre with the advanced Turbine Engine G2 graphics engine, providing some of the most sophisticated graphics available on a PC. Asheron's Call 2 Fallen Kings features a dynamic, evolving fantasy world that reacts to players' behavior and actions. Developed by Turbine, the game includes features such as a revamped combat system and new in-depth crafting system that gives players a chance to pursue noncombative skills.
