DUBLIN, Ireland - October 16th 2009 - Allods Online is the AAA fantasy and space opera MMORPG developed by Astrum Nival and published in English, French and German on the www.gpotato.eu games portal. As the game moves closer to the launch of its Closed Beta Test this Autumn, gPotato Europe is proud to announce Goblinoball, one of the many unique elements to feature in Allods Online this Autumn.
Have you ever played soccer in a MMORPG? Well in Allods Online, you can! Known as "Goblinoball", players can travel to the disputed allod known as Competition Island and make their way to the Goblinoball Arena. Here, they can join a team with other faction members and compete head-to-head with other teams from either factions using, you guessed it, a goblin as a ball. With a variety of skills to learn and a real life crowd to cheer teams on, Goblinoball allows teams to hone their solidarity and cooperation in a competitive environment. A detailed overview, including a behind the scenes article on this feature, is now available at http://en.gpotato.eu/Forum/Index.aspx?FCD=ALLODS_EN_N001&MODE=VT&TNO=44
Allods Online features two warring factions, six races, 28 classes, ship vs ship Astral space battles, mini-games-based crafting systems, PvP, PvE, guilds, 6v6 Goblinoball and many other elements. Players who reach level 35 will be able to start building their own massive Astral spaceship. They can then explore the deep and dynamic Astral environment in search of treasure, adventure and new territory, or engage in massive Astral battles featuring dozens of ships, each controlled by a crew of players. With a deep storyline covering thousands of years of in-game history, and over 1,500 quests at release, Allods Online has all the depth to compete with the best subscription MMORPGs on the markets, without any subscription --, ever!
