The Shadow Curse Expansion Lifted by Record Numbers

UK, September 8th, 2010: For Immediate release

September 8th, 2010– With the new expansion now fully underway, ChangYou.com (EU) Ltd. (NASDAQ: CYOU) has recorded a significant number of fresh guilds and members logging on hoping to experience the latest instalment titled‘The Shadow Curse’.

Last week saw the double launch for hit martial arts based MMO TLBB, which has seen unprecedented success among audiences across Europe. The‘Dragon’ server not only welcomed a number of unique and exciting features available to players, but also saw the launch of the token shop that has allowed gamers to customize their characters and help boost attributes in this 0.85 version.

A record number of guild members have also been spotted roaming the virtual lands and they, along with others, have been flocking to find out more about the Shadow Curse story that has taken significant turns thanks to the involvement of players and their support for the Emperor inside the game. The recently unveiled‘Cursed Brother’ event has given players license to battle with the best and charge forward in an action-packed quest to save an innocent brother who has been tainted by the evil Shadow Master Ting.

The Cursed Brother follows the story of a sister’s battle to find a cure for her poisoned brother who has fallen victim of an evil plot to steal some of the Kingdom’s most precious riches. During this event players have been asked to join forces with the Emperor to contain the Jiang Shi from spreading whilst helping the sister to feed her brother the energy of life. Since the start of the Cursed Brother event, TLBB has witnessed an alarming number of kills towards regular enemies of the Kingdom but, more significantly, of the Jiang Shi (living dead) who linger around the Su Zhou area. The numbers have risen in their thousands and counting.

To go to battle with the Emperor, visit the‘Cursed Brother’ event page:

The Melting Falchion, Tracelss Sword, Blue Silver Circle and Windstone Fan all possess the power to accent any players’ desire to become the best. Track down one of these deadly weapons and players can guarantee the respect from others in this, the most powerful martial arts experience of your MMO life.
