Shaiya Spanish Kicks Off Closed Beta with Free Gifts&Prizes

SANTA CLARA, Calif.– January 20, 2010– Aeria Games announced today that Shaiya Spanish, the new, eagerly anticipated, Spanish-language version of its popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), has officially entered Closed Beta. Participants will be awarded a valuable in-game item bundle and will be eligible to win up to 10,000 Aeria Points (AP) and player mounts once the game launches.

Shaiya Spanish is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG that has already achieved major success in North American, French, German, and Turkish territories. No other title in the history of the publisher has achieved such widespread popularity. The game features thousands of quests, dungeons and raids, mounts, a player based economy, and competitive player vs. player (PvP) and realm vs. realm (RvR) combat.

“Shaiya is stunning; and in terms of content, it’s so deep that quests alone could fill up to 10 novels!” says Alejandro Arevalo, Producer for Shaiya Spanish.“It enjoys an RvR system that allows large-scale warfare among players, which determines the balance of power in the game. This enables Shaiya to evolve constantly. We are overjoyed to bring this game to the Spanish-speaking world, and we are certain they will be fascinated.”

Every player who takes part in the early test period will receive a gift package that includes: a Beta Ring, Knockout Nostrum, XP Ministones, Heily Competences, and Apostle Competences. Additionally, the four highest ranking players at the end of Closed Beta will receive:

    <*> First Place: 10,000 AP&a Rare Mount (Red Leopard or Black Horse) <*> Second Place: 7,500 AP&a Rare Mount (Red Leopard or Black Horse) <*> Third Place: 5,000 AP&a Mount (Elf Reindeer or Leopard) <*> Fourth Place: 2,500 AP&a Mount (Elf Reindeer or Leopard)
