Berlin, 08/09/2010: Frogster is today presenting a further region in Bounty Bay Online which is to be released with the upcoming‘Atlantis’ expansion– the Northern Islands.
From 22/09/2010 players can set off on their journeys through the cold northern seas to reach the foggy coastal waters of a new ice-bound island. Players must anchor their ships and head for base camp where they can start exploring the snow-covered island which includes a small town and the high-level‘Polar Tundra’ instance. The idyllic snow-dusted scenery of the island, however, hides a range of dangers which players must face: deadly polar bears, fur-clad islanders, snow monsters and even werewolves.
The‘Polar Tundra’ instance can be played in two difficulty levels and is spread over two different levels. On the first level players find themselves in the middle of a snowy landscape where they must confront ice werewolves ans a fearsome ice king. The second level is a gloomy cave inhabited by blood-thirsty vampires and is watched over by the mighty werewolf Luschence and his three offspring. Only the bravest of mariners who have already demonstrated their abilities in the lower level can attempt to face the challenges posed by the even more formidable creatures which inhabit the next level.
