Time for Heroes: Fantasy MMOG Maestia Launches


Hamburg / Munich, November 3, 2010– Following its successful open beta period, Maestia, the AAA-fantasy massively multiplayer online game (MMOG), officially launches today. Co-produced by SevenOne Intermedia, ProSiebenSat.1 Group, and Bigpoint, Maestia wows players with spectacular graphics and action-packed gameplay.

From its early beta period, Maestia has mesmerized its fans with many exciting features. With its official launch, even more content and optimization has been added. Starting today, players can look forward to attaining Level 80– the game’s highest achievement– and two new regions, Palus and Tenebra.

Higher-level players can complete countless quests, win special items, and earn amazing rewards in these new territories. The boldest players can test their mettle against Maestia’s most feared and dangerous villains in their new dungeons. Both regions have a night mode where players can fight in exciting player versus player (PvP) battles either alone or in a group.

The fun never ends! Another map on which players can fight epic battles has also been added to the realm versus realm (RvR) mode. And new items have been added to the Premium Shop to give players an even wider selection of available equipment.

Maestia’s sophisticated skill system and intuitive controls help newbies get started and give veteran players lots of gaming options. Maestones and divinity points make it possible for players to customize their own avatars and work towards becoming one of the most powerful heroes in all of Maestia.
