Undead Expansion Announced For MMO RTS Game SAGA


Provo, UT - April 11, 2008 - SAGA’s much-anticipated sixth faction was unearthed today. The Undead will be joining the Dark Elves and Orcs as part of the Brotherhood, fighting against the Dwarves, Elves and Giants who make up the forces of Order. The Undead faction will add over 20 unique unit types to the core set, which already consists of over 150 different troops and spells.

Much of the story behind the Undead’s resurfacing and timing of their release into the game will depend on player-driven events. There is no official date for the expansion release. Everything depends on how quickly players can complete the quests and gather the necessary resources to free Goth Azul from the Underworld, who will unleash the Undead hordes into the world. New units for the other five factions will also become unlocked as players complete objectives.

Undead warriors are fearless and strike terror into the hearts of their enemies. Their abilities and tactical strengths will reflect conventional traits drawn from undead mythology with some surprises thrown in.
