Manga Style Social Game Trials of Elsword Officially Launches on Facebook

IRVINE, Calif.– May 19, 2011– Time to sharpen your fast and furious melee combat skills with the action-packed social network game Trials of Elsword – the Facebook companion app to massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) Elsword . Those looking to polish their side-scrolling fighting technique before jumping in to the vibrant world of Elsword can check out the official Trials of Elsword Facebook page to get started, invite friends to play and collect exclusive items redeemable in Elsword.

Trials of Elsword allows players on Facebook to battle their way through challenging adventures for bonuses they can carry over to the PC version. Trials of Elsword players select from two gameplay modes: storybook mode or challenge mode. Storybook mode affords the opportunity to play increasingly difficult levels and unlock additional characters by inviting friends, while challenge mode unleashes a fierce battle among Facebook friends to reach the top of the leader board. For those who accept the challenge, Trials of Elsword offers the incentive of collectable items redeemable in the larger Elsword online game.

“We wanted to provide players with the fast-paced and engaging gameplay style they have come to expect from social network games, while also maintaining Elsword’s manga aesthetic,”said Ben Colayco, CEO of Kill3rCombo.“By offering players the incentive of redeemable items upon completion of Trials of Elsword, we hope that the app will not only excite potential Elsword players , but also serve as a sample of what to expect in the larger client.”
