Road to Patch 1.0.1: New Launcher/Patcher of The Chronicles of Spellborn®&new equipment pieces: the Hoods

The Hague, 2008/12/16: Spellborn NV, developer of the MMORPG The Chronicles of Spellborn®, reveals today the new Launcher/Patcher of The Chronicles of Spellborn®.

From the early Beta phases to the released version, the Launcher/Patcher of The Chronicles of Spellborn® has seen its design modified to reflect important milestones within the lore.

The latest version, codename“The Seal”, mirrors the thawing of the Undying Ice with the artefact known as the Barbarian Seal.

This Launcher/Patcher features two new functionalities. The first one is called "Options", which lets the players choose the language of the Launcher and of the game, and the second one is a "Check Files" button, which makes sure all files in the Spellborn installation directory are up-to-date and not corrupted.

Each time a player starts up The Chronicles of Spellborn®, the Launcher/Patcher is displayed, showing the latest information about the game, such as hotfixes, content and patch notes.

Screenshots of the Launcher can be found at the following address on The Chronicles of Spellborn® official website:

In addition, yesterday Spellborn NV also released screenshots of new equipment pieces showcasing brand new Hoods. Like all other pieces of equipment in The Chronicles of Spellborn®, these headpieces do not feature any statistics by themselves and are only available to the players to salvage from defeated opponents or as important quest rewards. Naturally, the hoods will also allow for customization through the use of Item Sigils and colouring.

New adventurers in The Chronicles of Spellborn® can already customize their character with two of the hoods available during character creation.

What Lies Hidden, Must Be Found

In The Chronicles of Spellborn® players enter an impressive online game world containing scenic landscapes, majestic cities and the remnants of a shattered world. Alone or with a party of friends, PC adventurers step into a fantasy realm consisting of varied shards: habitable pieces of the destroyed world floating in the magical Deadspell Storm. Those who want to prevail in the actively involving combat of The Chronicles of Spellborn® need to apply their mighty arsenal of skills with actual manual aiming skills. Battles with bloodthirsty creatures, intelligent hostile factions and other human opponents in Player vs. Player battles are waiting. An innovative and tactically challenging combat system with third-person shooter-like controls and a unique rotating Skill Deck provides a breath of fresh air amidst the more traditional MMORPGs. Thanks to a largely extended Unreal Engine 2.5, The Chronicles of Spellborn® boasts stunning 3D graphics, spectacular effects and countless elaborate details.
