FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SANTA CLARA, Calif.– July 7, 2010– Aeria Games, a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, is amassing an epic collection of heroes and warriors from history, mythology, and popular culture, all of whom will soon appear in Legendary Champions, the newest title to join Aeria’s free-to-play catalogue. Developed by USERJOY Technology, Legendary Champions is Aeria’s latest massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). The game challenges players to adventure through a vast fantasy world and compete in DotA-style and player-versus-player (PvP) battlegrounds with the ability to transform into over 60 larger-than-life characters.

"Every one of our games can turn an ordinary player into a hero," said Jehanzeb Hasan, Jr. Project Manager at Aeria Games. "With Legendary Champions, it’s now possible to unlock and transform into an entire army of heroes, inspired by everything from Eastern lore to Western myth. Players will get the chance to play alongside, and in the shoes of, everyone from Dracula to Beowulf, Mulan to King Arthur."

Legendary Champions is a fantasy MMORPG which draws from many sources of culture to create a vast world filled with epic characters. Players will ally themselves with one of two factions and collect an army of heroes to aid them in solo quests, dungeons, battlegrounds, and more.

    <*>Over 60 Champions to Choose: Create your own personal avatar and transform into heroes from myth and legend, each with unique abilities and upgradeable skills. <*>Dominate the Battlefield: Compete in 5-on-5 DotA-style battlegrounds with team objectives and rare, coveted rewards– or engage in open and guild-based PvP battlefields. <*>Conquer Dungeons&Epic Monsters: Delve into instanced dungeons with your allies and take on some of the largest and most powerful creatures in the game. <*>Team Up and Work Together: Guild leaders receive a commission from their members’ purchases, and members earn in-game benefits from leaders’ guild improvements.
