The critically acclaimed Action/RPG of 2004, Champions of Norrath ™, gets a sequel! Champions: Return to Arms ™, published by Sony Online Entertainment and developed by the creators of Baldur's Gate ™: Dark Alliance ™ and Champions of Norrath , will build on the progressive features of the first edition with more single-player adventures, a deeper online and multiplayer experience, two new playable races, beautifully detailed environments, a whole new storyline, secret gameplay modes, new monsters, weapons and items and much more.

The Champions of Norrath have destroyed the god Innoruuk, shattering his body into shards of hate.
