Dynasty Warriors Online Powers Up

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SANTA CLARA, Calif– Oct. 14, 2010 - Get your passport ready for a trip to Ancient China because Dynasty Warriors Online closed beta testing begins today for gamers in North America and Europe. Starting today, players can experience Dynasty Warriors’ legendary hack and slash gameplay as a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). The closed beta testing (CBT) phase promises players the core gameplay experience that made Dynasty Warriors a household name.

Transporting the magnificence of Ancient China to the computer screen in the way only Dynasty Warriors Online can, players will battle through ranks, acquire lieutenants and customize weapons in multiplayer, co-op or player versus player (PvP) modes. Form a guild or travel alone, either way, players will battle friends and foes alike, team up on missions and conquer the land of the Wei, Shu and Wu kingdoms.

“This is the moment Aeria Games has been waiting for since we first announced Dynasty Warriors Online,” said Brian DeSanti, associate producer, Aeria Games.“We welcome gamers to sign up as closed beta testers to hack and slash their way through hordes of enemies. Spots are limited so players should sign up soon!”

Players must prepare for battle in Dynasty Warriors Online wisely, as they begin life on the battlefield as a lowly recruit. But after gaining respect and honor in battle, players will level up by passing promotion tests to move up the military ranks and unlock quests to potentially earn the title of Great General.

Online gamers ready for battle can still apply for access at http://dynastywarriors.aeriagames.com and join the fight in Dynasty Warriors Online. Dynasty Warriors can team up at www.facebook.com/DynastyWarriorsOnline. To watch the intense fighting go to http://www.youtube.com/user/DynastyWarriors.
