Requiem:The Nightmare is Near

Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

Another 'M' for mature title is coming to a pc near you. This time the emphasis is on horror. That's right horror. You know the kind with the hockey mask and machete. Do me a favor and try not to trip over your own two feet as you run away screaming like a little girl.

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. – June 6, 2008 – Requiem: Bloodymare will bring a new era of mature horror to the MMO space with its commercial launch. Players that pre-order subscriptions will be able to begin playing on June 16, three days before gamers using the free-to-play option.

This M-rated horror title brings a new option to mature MMO players looking for an alternative to the standard game fare. In addition to the controversial content, Requiem: Bloodymare's gameplay challenges conventional MMO approaches.

Character development is not restricted to just choosing a class and skills. Players will use the DNA system to experiment with their own genetic code. Ghoulish experiments with DNA will allow characters to obtain traits that nature never intended.

Players will also not be tied down to just the skills open to their class. Using the Beast Possession system they will be able to transform into some of the most violent and grotesque monsters they encounter. Regardless of initial class, players are free to choose between monsters that rip prey to shreds with their bare claws to ones that call up dark magical forces that rot the flesh off theeir enemies' bones.

The world is a deadly place in Requiem. When day turns to night the world decays in a Nightmare-ish landscape and terrifying monsters come to life. Imbued with unholy power, they are many times more powerful than the daylight denizens.

"We've put together a title that is going to turn the MMO world on its ear. Requiem: Bloodymare is, quite simply, one of the best free-to-play MMOs out there," said Jay H. Choi, vice president, Gravity Interactive.

The game will be free-to-play with two levels of subscriptions. Players who purchase a Basic or Premium package for Requiem: Bloodymare will receive an exclusive 3-day early access pass into the game and a special experience bonus for the early period. Players must purchase the monthly package from June 5 to June 12 to be eligible.

The basic and premium packages cost $7.99/month and $14.99/month, respectively. The packages also include faster character development, increased item drops, bonus points from Item Mall purchases as well as enhanced chat functionality.

While most people consider 13 to be an unlucky number, we here at Ten Ton Hammer don't happen to agree, at least for this week.
