DENVER, COLO. – May 20, 2008 – The first four-set block of the heroic Norrathian storyline for the popular online strategy game Legends of Norrath™ (LoN) is nearly complete!
Sony Online Entertainment LLC announced today that Oathbreaker is currently in development and scheduled to launch on Thursday, June 19, 2008. Featuring hundreds of new cards and gameplay features, Oathbreaker not only completes the Inquisitor story arc which originated with LoN's first set, Oathbound – it's also the last LoN release before the $100,000 World Championship event at Gen Con Indy, August 14-17!
"Oathbreaker has played a significant role in the sequence of Legends of Norrath development both internally and with the player community," said Scott Martins, director of development, SOE Denver. "With over 250 new cards to enhance your strategies, Oathbreaker is a perfect point to jump into the game, just in time for the monthly Legends of Norrath Championship Series, which is set to culminate in August in Indianapolis at Gen Con Indy 2008. At that event, 32 players will compete for a total prize pool of $100,000!" Oathbreaker will enthrall with a tale of corruption from within and redemption that comes at a terrible cost, providing unprecedented level of drama in the ongoing saga, while also expanding upon traditional game and raid-play functionality.
