Beltion - Trailer
Lanael writes that Rostok Games has released a new 3 minute trailer for Beltion. Since the site (and the newsbit) is entirely in Russian, here's the direct link to the trailer on Rapidshare. Word from Lanael is "after nearly one minute of precalculated sequences ( It looks like bits of the intro ), there are shorts sequences showing combats. Thus a few settings, monsters and weapons can be seen. Two weapons are noticeable : grenades and an antique medievalish gun."

Beltion - On an English Release
Lanael writes that he recently sent off a missive to Rostok Games asking about international releases of Beltion: Beyond Ritual and received the following reply:
Dear fan of our game!
We are glad to see our project to be anticipated and waited for not only locally but abroad too. Unfortunately, the question of releasing the game outside Russia, Ukraine and Baltia is still open. There's still no western publisher for the game,
and the amount of resources which can be spent on english-speaking audience is still minimal.
Considering the local game version, we expect it to be published in Ukrain and Russia at the 1st quarter 2008.
As soon as there will be any definite decision about our English version, we'll provide the site and corresponding newsreel in English. Rest assured, we'll try to do what we can to keep our foreign fans informed.

Beltion: Beyond Ritual - English Website Online
Thanks to CRPG.ru for poinitng out Russian project Beltion: Beyond Ritual from Rostok Games now has an English website. Head over for screens and information on the gameworld, hero, religions and more. Here's the game description from the Literature section:
«Beltion: Beyond Ritual» is a third-person view action/RPG, taking place in the original fantasy world significantly different from the genre canons. It is a new look to well-known fantasy races and nations, which differ either from their canonic appearance or games' and literature descriptions. The main character, a priest of one of human Temples, explores the world of Beltion, discovering its secrets and mysteries to the player.
Unique selling points of the game:
- game world of independent design, art and storyline
- nonstandard approach to genre and set art canons
- vivid main character shown on a nonstandard image of a necromancer priest
- rolepleying system of independent design
- "lively" game world
- combat system based on feats and combos
- diversified dialogue system
- varied endings based on in-game choices
