It's official! Acclaim has released The Chronicles of Spellborn into the North American marketplace and everyone can celebrate with two free weeks of premium service. You read that right; Acclaim wants you to try out every part of the game and really check out your options before you simple settle for the free service.
Here's the official press release:
Los Angeles, CA (April 23, 2009) Â Acclaim Games is pleased to announce the official release of The Chronicles of Spellborn MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). To celebrate the official launch, Acclaim will offer all players a free 2 week premium subscription, along with the introduction of a new credit card payment option for added convenience. With the official release, players are invited to join the fun in one of the most innovative MMORPGÂs on the market featuring a unique real-time combat system that truly sets the game apart!
Acclaim now offers a new credit card payment option to easily purchase premium subscriptions online using a major credit card! With the addition of this new purchase option, players have the option of buying premium subscriptions with either a major credit card or Acclaim Coins, the universal virtual currency used for all Acclaim games. Those who purchase with Acclaim Coins can also take advantage of the special introductory discount pricing, offered for a limited time only.
To commemorate the release, a special launch promotion will be available from April 23 to May 7 offering a FREE 2 week premium subscription for all new and existing players giving everyone a chance to evaluate the game and experience the unique real-time combat system of Spellborn. New players must register between April 23 and May 7 to get the free subscription.
ÂWe meet with the gamers every week to discuss Spellborn, they tell us the fighting system is the most amazing thing about the game. The idea being that your Âmoment-to-momentÂ control during battle, mixed with your own custom skill deck gives endless possibilities. To see a smart level 5 player take down a level 15 player is something that SHOULD be possible in MMOs, and is something that really good players deserve to be able to do!Â, says David Perry the USA Director for the Spellborn Project.
Once players download and install the game for free, they can choose between a PvE (Player vs Environment) server called ÂDorzhanÂ and a PvP (Player vs Player) server called ÂDeiquonrilÂ for a more intense combat experience.
In all regions, Spellborn will be a ÂFreemiumÂ game, with a Free to Play zone and a required premium subscription service in order to access the full game past the Free to Play zone. The Spellborn game client is completely free to download and install from the official website.
