ATLUS ONLINE GIVES ITS HARDCORE SOMETHING HARDER: NEW HIGH-LEVEL CONTENT LAUNCHING SOON FOR PANDORA SAGA, NE

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- JANUARY 20, 2011 -- Atlus Online today revealed plans to add the new Muldian Uncivilized District to F2P open beta MMORPG  Pandora Saga™, providing advanced players and newcomers alike with an all new area to explore and new extremely challenging foes to confront, while those with very high level characters hungry for a real test can look forward to the most intense player-vs-player battles the game has to offer.  This update joins the recently announced Dragonia expansion for Atlus Online's first game,  Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent.

"The new Muldian Uncivilized District is Pandora Saga's wildest frontier," commented Tsuyoshi Onozuka, Director at Atlus Online.  "Its high-level bosses and exceedingly rare item drops are the perfect tantalizing motivation for newcomers to persevere and ultimately become strong enough to enter.  No one under level 30 should consider making the journey, however, and even those leveled for the task should be prepared for incredibly strong enemies and hotly contested PvP battles.  Be warned: the Muldian Uncivilized District is not to be taken lightly.  It wants to crush you, to see you driven before it, and to hear the lamentation of you and the many other players who seek to brave its challenges."

 

Launching within a day of Pandora Saga's addition,  Dragonia, the highly-anticipated expansion to Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent, presents players level 112 and up with the infamous titular dungeon, a hotly contested arena in which player nations fight to control crystal cores.  That is, as they all the while struggle to fend off the labryrinth's terrifyingly powerful monsters.  Interested in an epic player-vs-player power struggle in Neo Steam's  deepest dungeon?  Dragonia is what you've been waiting for!
