There’s a new PVP battleground in town.
Atlus Online partners with Level Up! Global Games (LU/GG) for the launch of its newest PvP-centric massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), Pandora Saga, in the Philippines.
According to the game’s story; “In ancient times, a single ruler dominated the world under one great empire. Known for his benevolence, this beloved King presided over a long age of peace and harmony… all due to his possession of a primeval relic known as “Pandora.” One fateful night, peace was shattered as a great fire rained down upon the earth, leaving nothing behind but smoldering ash. Overnight, the once great empire was reduced to rubble, wiping out any traces of Pandora along with it.
Years after the Great Catastrophe, three new nations emerged from the ruin – The Kingdom of St. Pfelstein, The Empire of Latuga, and The Confederation of Varik. However, peace between these three factions was only temporary; soon, war erupted to control both territory and resources in this developing land. As conflict escalated, casualties grew by the thousands, polluting the earth with corpses and the rivers with blood. Using the war as a distraction, the three nations’ leaders secretly conducted a search for the long-forgotten artifact “Pandora” once used by the ancient king. Prophecy states, “Those who find Pandora will be granted unparalleled honor, power, and riches.” The truth of these words, however, remains unclear.
The world suffered centuries of perpetual warfare as the three factions remained deadlocked in their struggle to dominate each other. Amid this strife, an evil shaman named Brahm joined forces with a powerful demon in order to start a war to claim Pandora as his own. As conflict spread into the Neutral Territory of Astir, each nation’s army charged fiercely into what was supposed to be the decisive battle. Brahm took this opportunity to unleash a grand fulmination into the warzone, decimating the armies of all three forces. The few who survived escaped with their lives, but not their memories… You will take on the role of one such adventurer on a quest to regain your memories and discover the truth behind Pandora…
Players can choose to pledge their allegiance to the Kingdom of Pfelstein, the Empire of Latuga or the Confederation of Varik, who are all vying for ultimate control of both territory and resources and searching for the long-forgotten artifact, Pandora.
Prophecy states, “Those who find Pandora will be granted unparalleled honor, power, and riches.” Lend your strength to the nation of your choosing, lest the war for control and quest to find Pandora first bring the walls of your nation crumbling down…
Filipino players will be able to enjoy the game with exciting new content such as intense PvP action in an underground map where massive monsters and other players challenge their skills, epic wars of up to 300 combatants, and much more. With the new set of third-tier job classes available, players will be able to choose from 28 different ones in the game, further enriching their gaming experience! A quest will also enable players to get warhorses and customize them to fit their fighting style for mounted combat action that will help ensure your victory on the battlefield. In contrast to the game’s massive Warzone battles, a new Gacha minigame offers players a more relaxed form of competition.
Everyone who plays gets a prize, but a select few will walk away with a special rare prize, making for an addicting diversion from the game’s core of questing, fighting, and exploring. In celebration of the Philippines launch, the Gacha minigame is FREE for a limited time (one turn per day), so players are urged to try it before it goes away on April 30, 2011.
Pandora Saga is set to launch in the Philippines on April 13, 2011. Filipino players will be able to use their My Level Up! accounts to purchase Pandora Points using Level Up! prepaid cards.
Players will also be able to play Pandora Saga in major internet cafés nationwide.
