March 5, 2009– San Francisco, CA– EYA Interactive Co. Ltd. (EYA Interactive), one of the world’s premier multimedia entertainment service providers, announced today that Titan Online, its free-to-play, massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG), will enter into limited public beta on March 19, 2009. Slated for release this spring, users can get a taste for this martial arts fantasy by logging in at http://titan.eyagames.com.
An epic title based on traditional Asian culture, Titan Online is a fusion MMORPG that boasts a unique combination of martial arts and robots that takes place in a spectacular fantasy world. Titan Online is based upon the Korean best-selling novel,“Mo Siang.” Set in ancient China, players will experience historic Chinese locales, meet influential figures from various dynasties, experience mysterious aspects of various ancient Asian cultures, all while trying to save the martial arts world by engaging in intense real-time battles.
New in this beta, gamers will appreciate even more creation choices, including African American and Caucasian characters. Players who participated in the original closed beta will be able to use the same character. In other words, those testers won't have to start again from scratch and will be able to test out higher level contents. In-game and forum events also will be held for players to engage in a more interactive experience.
“This new milestone will contain quite a bit of additional game content including more quests, and various labyrinths and dungeons,” says Han Joo Lee, EYA Interactive’s global service manager.“With all the new players in the game for the limited public beta, the experience will be much more interactive and users will really get a feel for the commercial version; especially playing with group skills like formation in a party or guild battles.”
Developed in-house by EYA Interactive, Titan Online offers a very real picture of ancient China with 75 maps of historical sites, including Dun Hwang, Chang An, Kai Feng, Beijing, Shu Zhou, Shao Lin Temple, Chin Shi Huang mausoleum, Hang Zhou, Tai Shan, The Great Wall, and Hwang Her. In order to create the most true-to-life experience, the EYA development team spent time in China researching the ancient and historical cities so they could accurately reproduce them in the game.
The upcoming beta test, which will begin on March 19, 2009, will allow users to tap into a world that has already birthed a veritable civilization of fans in Asia. It will offer players an opportunity to discover enthralling characters in a beautiful 3D, cell-shaded world filled with unique characters. The limited public beta will last until the end of the month and is limited to specific number of participants. Interested players can learn more at http://titan.eyagames.com.
EYA Interactive will be showing Titan Online at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco from March 23– 27. Editors interested in a demo of Titan Online can contact Hillary L. Lyons ( Hillary@forthewinpr.com) or William O’Neal ( William@forthewinpr.com) for an appointment.
