Major update for Canaan Online goes live today in Europe

Press Release

For immediate release

Dublin, Ireland – August 1st, 2012Gala Networks Europe, one of the leading free-to-play games publishers and operators of the portal, is delighted to announce the launch of a new major expansion for Canaan Online, a free browser-based MMORPG set in a manga universe. This important update will be released this afternoon on their English, French and German servers

This major expansion will give all the adventurers the opportunity to try the brand new Druid class.

The Druid is like no other class in Canaan Online and offers players the chance to experience a range of different abilities and skills in game. By casting their many buffs, Druids can increase the attributes of pets beyond their normal limits and confer new active and passive abilities never seen before.

The Druid may act as a support class who augments the party’s damage and survivability, or fill the role of a damage dealer, utilising his trademark whip and an array of poisons and debuffs.

The Druid release is accompanied by a host of new content, including new items, new weapons, more quests, new player mounts, and of course: new pets. These will give even long-established players the opportunity to experience a new chapter in the story of Canaan Online!

Also featured will be an improved tutorial that should appeal to players newly arrived in the exciting world and will make it easier for them to familiarise themselves with all the unique features Canaan Online has to offer.

But that’s not all, to mark the occasion, the Canaan Online team has prepared a special event which will start this Friday and all characters will earn double experience to help level up their new Druids and existing characters!

Canaan Online is a free browser-based MMORPG based in a cute manga universe. No download is required, and the game can be played directly from your browser!
