Aeria Games Launches Open Beta for Shaiya

PRESS RELEASE

California, U.S.A. (December 18, 2007)– Today, Aeria Games launched Open Beta for Shaiya in North America.

Shaiya is a fantasy Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). Located on a distant planet, Shaiya puts players in the middle of an age-old blood feud between two warring factions: the Union of Fury and the Alliance of Light.

The Closed Beta test phase of Shaiya saw thousands of players joining the fray. While players gained early access to dozens of maps, hundreds of monsters, and over 1,000 quests; Aeria Games gained the assistance of an army of testers.

With the help of the Aeria Games community, potential stumbling blocks were identified and reported. Team Shaiya worked as swiftly as possible to implement fixes and get our players back into the game and launch Open Beta.

“We want to thank the community at Aeria Games for stepping up and helping out,” said Eron Garcia, Shaiya’s Producer,“They played a major role in making Shaiya what it is and offered dozens of solid suggestions for future improvements.

We’re pleased to bring Shaiya back to them.”

Shaiya is a classic-style MMORPG that offers its players:

    <*>Immersive Environments: From the green hills and blue skies of the Alliance of Light, to the rocky landscape and black clouds of the Union of Fury, the continent of Teos ebbs and flows beneath your feet. Frozen tundra, desert wastelands, glistening lakes, towering trees and even a floating temple await. <*>Addictive Game-play: PvE, PvP and RvR. Players can battle monsters, duel each other, or compete in the massive realm-versus-realm battles for the blessing of their Goddess. <*>Fantasy Elements: Dragons, elves, swords, magic, dramatic music, quests, faithful steeds, and the never-ending of battle of Light versus Darkness all harken back to the roots of role-playing games.
Players are encouraged to download the new game client. Links to download are on the Shaiya website at: http://shaiya.aeriagames.com
