Good and evil take flight as players choose sides with the live launch of War of Angels , the first title produced for a North American audience by Neowiz Games . The free-to-play, high fantasy massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) soars into its official service after undergoing a rigorous and successful beta testing period. Players who join the live launch of War of Angels will enjoy new free content as well as more than 140 in-game items in the War of Angels shop, which offers gamers an opportunity to enrich their playing experience through real money transactions.

War of Angels immerses players in a lush world where the choices they make during gameplay will ultimately decide their destiny as good or evil warriors. Gamers can explore the vast environment of War of Angels by land, sea and air while preparing to seal the fate of the sinister fallen angel, Dertgotz, by helping or hindering his resurrection. Players make choices throughout the game that determine their alignment on the side of good or evil, and once gamers complete the main story quest and are judged, the world opens up to faction-based, player-versus-player (PvP) combat.

“Prepare to spill blood into the cracks on the ground, cloud the skies with aerial combat, and paint oceans red with the launch of War of Angels,” said John Nam, chief operating officer for Neowiz Games in North America.“We’ve used our beta phases to listen to our gamers and offer them and new players an epic, fierce gameplay experience. So choose your weapons, choose your side and be ready to fight over land, sea and air in War of Angels.”

Not only do gamers experience the unique gameplay, which takes place on land, underwater and in the skies, but as players plow through missions, they can utilize brutal Deathblow Attacks to defeat especially difficult monsters. Leveling enables gamers to enchant their weapons and armor, while the Constellation System allows players to create one-of-a-kind items.
