The new“Golden Monarch” expansion for Rappelz is now live in Europe

Press Release

For immediate release

DUBLIN, Ireland– September 29th, 2009. The dark world of Rappelz, the free fantasy MMORPG boasting more than 2.5 million players all around the world, enters a new era with the“Golden Monarch” expansion launched today on the European servers. This expansion brings three new tamable creatures, a new marketplace area, and the brand new dungeon of El Kassia protected by the terrible boss monster Rà.

Always yearning for new discovery, adventurers have unearthed the ruins of the El Kassia dungeon. The ancestors of Gaia, Golden Tribe, who had been enslaved because of their precious golden eyes that shone like the sun, are now awaken and waiting for the visitors. To protect themselves, they created an eternal guardian, a symbol of the survival of their race. They named this guardian Rà and he awaits warriors who think they are powerful enough to challenge him.

The dungeon of El Kassia is available to all adventurers having reached the Rank VI, and other features have been added for all players. Three new pets have been added to the already huge Rappelz bestiary: the poisonous Kraken, the warrior-mage Tafari and the legendary Djinn using wind magic to destroy its opponents.

Adventurers will also have access to a brand new area dedicated to trading and linked to every city in the world of Rappelz. UI improvement and a brand new character creation interface are as well included in this new expansion which is available from today, for free to all users on the www.gpotato.eu games portal.
