The Chosen Launches New Server, Announces Huge In-Game Contest

LOS ANGELES - October 10, 2011

Snail Games USA today announced the launch of a new server to support their growing free-to-play MMORPG, The Chosen. To celebrate the Rally server launch, Snail is offering a one-of-a-kind Chosen laser-etched laptop to the first Rally player to achieve the ultimate in-game rank: The Chosen.

The Chosen is a fabled rank held only by two players thus far, one of which reached the top only three weeks after the game’s release! To achieve this feat on the new Rally server and take home the limited-edition laptop, first become the King of your Dynasty, and then defeat other Dynasties in the Tripod War.
