Remember FATE? WildTangent has released a sequel titled FATE: Undiscovered Realms. Here's the PR:
WildTangent Launches FATE Undiscovered Realms
New Edition of the Company's Landmark, Award-Winning RPG Title Promises to Delight FATE Fans of All Ages
REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - WildTangent, Inc., the largest privately held online game property in North America, announced today it has released the next version of its downloadable, award-winning fantasy RPG titled "FATE Undiscovered Realms." The release comes three years after the company launched the original FATE, which PC Gamer Magazine named runner-up for "RPG of the Year" in 2005. Since that time, the game has sold nearly one million copies worldwide and has been played more than 50 million times, making it the company's best-selling and most played game ever.
FATE Undiscovered Realms is a fantasy action role-playing game in which players take their characters through progressively difficult levels of a dungeon while fighting monsters, completing quests, and collecting valuable items and gold. Players earn experience points that boost character attributes and unlock new levels and weapons.
Undiscovered Realms adds several new features and functions to the original game, including:
-- The mysterious Temple of Fate which holds unknown secrets
-- Two new realms with all-new art and adaptive musical score to
-- The outpost Typhon with its cold, snowy dungeons
-- The outpost Druantia set amidst lush forests
-- New allies for your pet to be transformed into
-- The exchange of Fate Cards for Gems
-- Five new challenging quest types:
-- Defend: Fight an onslaught of monsters while protecting
-- Capture: Imprison evil foes and bring them to justice
-- Escort: Lead important characters through throngs of enemies
-- Assault: Assault an ancient shrine that has fallen prey to
-- Herd: Gather creatures in groups to reunite them with their
-- New beasts to test your courage, strength and determination
-- Ability to import original FATE characters into the Undiscovered
-- Continuance beyond Level 99
-- Hardcore mode (disabled cheats and tougher monsters)
-- Additional online leader board for Hardcore mode
"FATE ushered in a new category of gaming and, for the first time, brought together the best characteristics of what had historically been two separate and distinct gaming markets," said Alex St. John, CEO of WildTangent. "As one of the most popular RPG games in history, FATE is proof that downloadable games with high-production value content can make millions and millions of dollars in our multi-pronged retail and ad-supported business model."
It might be worth noting the original project lead - Travis Baldree - has long since moved on to Flagship and despite the popularity of the original, some people are uncomfortable with WildTangent's adware/spyware associations.
