Frogster Announces Eligium Closed Beta to Start December 19th

Posted Thu, Nov 17, 2011 by Martuk

Frogster seems to have a lot of confidence in their upcoming title, Eligium – The Chosen One. The free-to-play publisher today announced that the Eligium closed beta will kick off on December 19th, one day before the launch of BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic and right in the thick of its head start.

Eligium boasts mounted combat with mounts that players can evolve by feeding and caring for. These mounts can then be used to charge into battle. But can an enraged Panda Monk on horseback compete with a force wielding Jedi?

If you plan on ducking out of the Star Wars: The Old Republic launch, you can sign up for a shot at the Eligium closed beta. Additional details are available in the Eligium Closed Beta FAQ.


Raise Your Mount, Soon!

Closed Beta Date Announced and First Glimpse at the Mount System

As Frogster gears up to the launch of ELIGIUM – The Chosen One, it can today unveil the starting date for the closed beta and reveal more information on one of its many features; preparing fans for their pursuit to become the chosen one.  On December 19th the closed beta will get underway, so to sign up just head over to the official website, www.eligium.com.

More information on the game’s mounts has also been released, as well as a collection of artworks from the developer, which promise to add a unique twist to the much loved feature.

My Kingdom for a Horse!
Every mount’s primary function is to bring its rider to their point of destination, without the arduous task of walking across mountains to get there. However, in ELIGIUM players can also ride their mounts straight into the heart of battle, without having to worry about dismounting. Of course, in order to make the most of them, players should take care to properly develop their mounts, such as by feeding them, otherwise a victorious charge could well turn into a painful embarrassment.

The process of raising your first mount begins with an egg; obtained from the many vendors found littered throughout the world.  Once your mount has grown to adolescence it will give a boost to its owner’s stats, but is not yet able to carry its master.  But once fully grown, mounts can take part in battles alongside their owners, becoming extremely powerful allies, and by equipping mounts with powerful items certain attributes can grow stronger.
