Burda:ic Brings Private Banking to the World of Florensia

MUNICH, Germany - April 7, 2009

Burda:ic, a publisher of online games worldwide, today announced the addition of Private and Account Banks to free-to-play fantasy MMORPG Florensia. The focus of today’s update, access to the Private Bank is free for everyone and available in the center of every city within Florensia. With 28 slots of storage space that can be expanded by purchasing additional slots from the Item Shop, players will never have to worry about running out of inventory space again!

The Account Bank also provides 28 slots of item storage, but may be accessed by every character a player has on a server. Does your Explorer have a powerful item he or she can’t use? Just drop it in the Account Bank and give it to your lower-level Saint! Access to the Account Bank can be purchased from the Item Shop in 7, 15, and 30-day increments, and just might change the way you play Florensia.

Also included in today’s update is a bevy of new monster skills, a number of small tweaks to the recently-added Free Battle Zones, and a major Item Shop update that kicks off Easter festivities in Florensia. These springtime outfits include everything from Bunny costumes with matching ears to colorful top hats, and are sure to get players in the mood for Easter egg hunting!
