Cambridge, United Kingdom, Wednesday 14th July 2010 - Jagex Games Studio, the world-leading browser games developer and publisher, today announced the development of Stellar Dawn, the studio’s latest MMORPG.

Stellar Dawn is an MMO with deep and compelling science fiction storylines and a variety of gameplay styles. The game, which is scheduled for release next year, will offer players the opportunity to explore vast worlds of futuristic environments and engage with an extensive backstory as they progress through the game.

“Stellar Dawn will be Jagex’s biggest release to date and everyone at the studio is absolutely electric with excitement as we enter the final stages of development,” said Mark Gerhard, Jagex CEO.“We are really happy with how well Stellar Dawn has come together. The team has deftly blended art, content and technology to provide the entertaining, long-term game appeal that we have become famous for. As we approach the public launch next year we will be revealing many more details about the game to the community on stellardawn.com.”

As with all Jagex games, Stellar Dawn will be widely accessible and playable on almost any PC or Mac with an internet connection - thanks to Jagex’s proprietary online-games platform. A sizeable proportion of the game will be playable free of charge, adding to the studio’s already substantial free-to-play games portfolio.

Players wishing to find out more about the game, or those who want to apply for a chance to participate in the closed beta, should sign up on the Stellar Dawn website - www.stellardawn.com
