Atlantis Goes Online

Berlin, 24/09/2010: Bounty Bay Online– Atlantis is the fourth add-on to the seafaring MMO which went online on Wednesday with English, German and French language versions. As with its predecessors, Atlantis is completely free-to-play and the game client is available now at www.bountybayonline.de. To mark the occasion, all players will be rewarded with double experience points as well as be able to take part in three daily in-game events which run until next Wednesday.

The expansion offers high-level players an array of new features such as two new regions each boasting multi-level instances with adjustable difficulty settings. Players can expect new armour sets replete with new bonuses, and an achievement system for explorers, an increased level cap (from 120 to 150), a crafting system, and much more in Bounty Bay Online– Atlantis.

On the previously undiscovered tropical Bimini Islands players will find a hidden entrance to the legendary underwater city of Atlantis. Dangerous sea monsters and indigenous tribes lurk in the various areas of this sunken metropolis waiting to pick off unsuspecting explorers. The King’s Tomb instance is also a perfect way for players to prove their talents. This two-level instance offers a range of new challenges available in two different difficulty settings. The second region, the icy Northern Islands, stand in stark contrast to the warm and verdant landscapes of the Bimini Islands. This snowy landscape is teeming with gigantic yetis, aggressive werewolves and bloodthirsty vampire for players to overcome. The barren tundra of these islands also conceals another double-level group instance playable in three difficulty settings.

The newly-added Achievement System for explorers provides players in Bounty Bay Online with the opportunity of receiving in-game currency or items as rewards for special discoveries which can be collected throughout the course of the game. These are separated into three categories, biological, industrial and cultural discoveries.

About Bounty Bay Online

With Bounty Bay Online players enter the Age of Discoveries from the 15th to the 17th

century. MMO fans are able to choose an online career as a merchant, sailor, fisherman, pirate or adventurer and make their fortune at land and on the seven seas. Alone or with a

guild of players, many adventures and gripping quests lie on their way. Thousands of ancient

discoveries on all continents like the pyramids of Gizah or the Chinese Wall are waiting to be

explored. After exciting PvP combat at land and on the seas, strong guilds can take control

In April 2008 Frogster has started a free-to-play server with an integrated item shop as an alternative to the subscription model, so that new sailors can now roam the Seven Seas without any fixed costs.
