More closed beta spots for Kingdom Heroes

by: Ben Berry -
Money talks, especially in the gaming industry where the MMO is the current king of the gaming mountain. It makes sense; write some content, get paid in perpetuity for gamers to reuse it. Write more, charge for the release, and get even more money. This has led to a glut of MMO's in the market, and rift in the quality between the few top end ones, and everything else. Everyone is looking for the concept that will know WoW off it's throne, or at least put another throne right next to it.

Kingdom Heroes looks to be one of the games that at least has a unique enough idea behind it that with strong development could be a quality entry in the MMO field. Set in feudal China, this free-to-play MMO has some interesting features including PvP that moves from land to ships. I've applied to be in the beta, so hopefully I get in.

Aeria Games Creates New Closed Beta Tester Spots for Kingdom Heroes

 

Kingdom Heroes Invites an Additional Round of Beta Testers to Ancient China


SANTA CLARA, Calif. - May 19, 2010 - Ancient Chinese General Sun Tzu once said, "Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted." PlayersKingdom Heroes Battle 2won't have to worry about being the late to the battlefield in Aeria Games' massively multiplayer online game (MMO) Kingdom Heroes - Aeria has announced that in response to the number of requests for closed beta testers, it will invite a larger second wave into the game.

 

"Since there was so much demand to get into the closed beta initially, we've decided to make a second round of invites, much larger than the original," said Keith Kawahata, producer at Aeria Games & Entertainment. "For an MMO, Kingdom Heroes boasts a unique blend of strategy and a player versus player (PvP) world based in Ancient China; we're pleased that so many players took notice that we had to expand our closed beta plans." 

 

Kingdom Heroes, the newest MMO from Aeria Games, reaches new heights in free-to-play games.  Here are some of the features players can look forward to in the game:

  • Epic Kingdom-wide Combat: players can engage in massive battles over land and sea
  • Ship-Based PvP: form player crews on the high seas to take down enemy ships
  • Siege Engines: raze cities to the ground using the awesome power of ballistae, catapults, trebuchets and more
  • Revolutionary Guild PvP: cooperate as a guild to take down and control fortresses, cities and trade hubs
  • Resource Management: control a city for long enough, and players can become administrators, collecting taxes on every transaction in that city
  • Customizable Armies: customize non-player character (NPC) armies with the discarded armor of enemies to give them additional strength in battle
