Nevrax has announced the launch of its ryzom.com web site featuring new and exclusive information about its upcoming online game, The Saga of Ryzom.
The Saga of Ryzom is a science-fantasy role-playing game set on an entirely organic planet called "Atys, Planet Tree" in the midst of an eco-drama. Players confront unique creatures, encounter deeply authentic civilizations, and discover and play in sumptuous and diverse ecosystems including majestic forests, luxuriant jungles, burning deserts and vast sea, in addition to communing with the many mysterious and magical entities of Atys. The main features of Ryzom are its ground-breaking, community-driven game systems, state-of-the-art graphics and third-generation technology that will offer gamers the chance to both compete and collaborate with intensity.
The web site also features a beta sign up section inviting fans and gamers to enter contact information and participate in the public beta test of Ryzom, which will take place in Q4 2002.
The game, produced by European developers in Paris, France, will primarily be released on PC-DVD Rom. It is scheduled for launch in Europe next year; a North American release has not been announced yet.
