Sony Online Entertainment releases 'Legends of Norrath'

MUMBAI:Sony Online Entertainment has announced the release of ‘Legends of Norrath‘, the online trading game based on SOE‘s popular MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) franchises. The announcement was made by the SOE president John Smedley during his fan faire community address.

Legends of Norrath is an online card game playable within the EverQuest(EQ) and EverQuest II(EQII) live MMO games. Launching from an in-game menu, or using a free SOE Station ID, players can challenge opponents on their game server, or across other EQ and EQII servers in both casual games and high-level tournaments.

"With Legends of Norrath, we‘re expanding and evolving the EverQuest and EverQuest II experience for both our loyal fans as well as strategy gamers," said Smedley.

"The cards and interface have been designed by some
people in our Denver studio, and perfectly capture the sense and feel that have made EQ and EQII so popular," added Smedley

Developed at SOE‘s Denver, CO studio, Oathbound is the first release in the Legends of Norrath storyline. Oathbound features more than 375 digital cards and will be available in both 55-card digital starter decks and 15-card digital booster packs, states an official release.

In this first of three card sets, players become part of a clandestine, secret war between the forces of Order and Chaos. Once jailed on the Plane of Justice, a mysterious tribunal offers them a chance for freedom and redemption by helping fight against the forces of Chaos. In swearing allegiance to the side of Order, players become Oathbound, and fight this shadow war against the forces of Chaos to
keep them from plunging Norrath into a bloody and eternal war.

In addition to player vs. player combat, Legends of Norrath is the complete online card gaming experience, featuring a sophisticated, re-playable AI system for single player campaigns, easy to use management tools and numerous Casual and Tournament game lobbies. Victory can be achieved by completing quests or reducing your opponent‘s health, enabling players to employ their own unique strategies for victory. The game also features a robust loot system; more than 30 loot items each for EQ and EQII will be available, including player mounts, potions, clothing and spells.
