Publisher: Microsoft Corp.

Developer: Turbine Entertainment Software

Format: CD-ROM for Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP and Windows 2000 operating systems.

Availability: Next Winter

Product Overview:
"Asheron's Call 2" is the next generation fantasy MMORPG in which the world dynamically evolves around you. Enter a land devastated by a magical disaster, where the players must rebuild the world. "Asheron's Call 2" features an all-new graphics engine, combat system and dynamic content system to deliver a rich, engaging fantasy world where world-shaking changes sweep you along an epic story-line.

Key Features:

  • Your world will never be the same: "Asheron's Call 2" features an unfolding storyline and a dynamic content system that can bring about an ongoing stream of world-shaking events, including blizzards, volcanoes and hordes of invading forces. As players become more powerful, they will be able to trigger some of these directly.
  • Grand Campaign - As each major chapter unfolds, players will receive a series of quests intricately tied to the story-line, sweeping them up into the events and story around them.
  • Factions - Players will be able to align with one of three factions and can do battle with both monsters and players of opposing groups to capture and control precious resources.
  • Rebuild the World - The world has been devastated by a great disaster. Players will be responsible for rebuilding the world and, on both a micro and macro level, their actions will help determine where and how the world is restored.
  • Interactive Environments - Players will be able to impact their game-world like never before. Everything from being able to change their immediate environment from completing a quest all the way up to triggering global events.
  • Tactical Combat: "Asheron's Call 2" features an all-new streamlined combat system where players are gripped by real-time decisions that influence the outcome of a battle. Players can excel and develop distinctive combat styles and techniques, and be the envy of other players.
  • Fantasy in a new light: "Asheron's Call 2" uses the Turbine Engine G2, the next generation graphics engine that provides real-time 3D shadows and lighting, and dense reactive environments. This creates a rich, atmospheric world where dense grass and foliage sway in the wind, and water shimmers with reflections. The engine also enables highly detailed player characters and monsters a hundred times more massive than the players.
  • Express your inner hero - Choose between three very different character races, including the industrious humans, the wild, magical Tumeroks or the behemoth Lugians. Develop your combat, crafting and magical abilities along distinct skill-trees with hundreds of skills, where experience and diligence will open up new paths for players to explore.
  • Crafting System - A brand new crafting system will give players the chance to pursue non-combat skills. Begin as a humble crafter of mundane items and graduate to become a master craftsman of the most sought-after magical items.
