SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Sept. 13, 2012DK Online’s Shadowmage class has stepped forth from the darkness and into the spotlight. Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, has released the last in its series of class spotlight videos for the upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).

Not all heroes are innocent and pure. In stark contrast to the most recent spotlight on the devout Paladin, the Shadowmage embraces a more sinister and subversive method of combat. Rather than going head to head with their adversaries, Shadowmages make them easier to kill by cursing and weakening them with dark spells.

Shadowmages are the ultimate support class, bringing a wealth of buffs to the party and debuffs to enemies. They have the ability to inflict poison, silence, paralysis, bleeding, slow, and more on their targets while simultaneously providing resistances against those same types of debuffs to their allies. No matter the situation, the Shadowmage has several powerful tools to swing the tide of battle in their favor.

Players interested in more in-depth information about the Shadowmage, as well as the other classes, can check out the DK Online website. The game will be free to download, and like all Aeria Games titles, it will be free-to-play. Interested players can sign up for closed beta now at
