Sunnyvale, Calif. – August 8, 2012 Plunder rival players’ ships or build your own private island in the New Horizons expansion for Allods Online! Watch the cannons roar and a towering fortress take shape in the latest Troll and Crab video, which showcases the new features that players in North America and Europe can enjoy today. North American players can get a fresh start on a brand new server and win real prizes in a log-in lottery event!
Be the first to set foot on the pristine isles of Avilon, a new North American server that opened today, August 8. Race to the top of your server or team up to explore with other players on Avilon, where all characters will be brand new. Discover the content, features, and improvements that have transformed Allods Online since launch! New Horizons adds even more to the fast-growing game with rebalanced Paladin and Psionicist classes, more powerful Draconic Aspect buffs, and the option to switch factions as the battle between League and Empire heats up.
Tear into your enemy’s ships or plant your flag on one of the recently discovered allods in Astral Space to make your fortune in the Trade Wars. Each of these six new allods produces a rare and valuable resource that can be captured to keep it out of the other faction’s hands. Launch direct assaults on the allods to reclaim them from your enemies or pirate their ships in fierce ship-to-ship PvP.
The Astral ships house up to six players in mobile, customizable machines of war, but not every player wants to share their living space. New Horizons introduces private allods, islands in the Astral space which can be earned purely through PvE questing. Players who have earned the title of “the Great” will now be able to choose from desert, jungle, or snow terrain and watch their allod come to life.
Start your adventure with a log-in lottery event in North America! Elite computer mice, keyboards, and headsets will be given out every day to lucky players who log in to Allods Online for at least one hour. The event lasts from August 8 to August 21, and all players who participate will be eligible to win the grand prize collection of elite gear on August 21.
Private Allods – Trade Wars – New Server – the hits just keep on coming for Allods Online. The Troll and Crab get struck by the barrage of features when their game of Astral Ships gets a little too intense. Check out the video and see what New Horizons have opened for North America and Europe!
