Berlin, 04.11.2009: A brand new in-game trailer launches today which will for the very first time give a comprehensive look at the up-coming add-on for Bounty Bay Online . The video gives a foretaste of what awaits players from 25th November in ‘Beyond the Horizon’. Players first of all steer their ships for the south American continent and venture a first look at the legendary Mayan civilisation, with its unique architecture and war-like population. On further voyages of discovery, seafarers can then dock in the new harbour cities of Seward, Salinas, San Francisco, San Diego and Cruz, or stop at the Magellan supply station to take on provisions and other useful things for their next voyage. Lots of high level regions of the add-on are, however, thanks to their countless dangers, not to be explored alone. This is where it pays to stick together. So the new character classes of Treasure Hunter, Armed Businessman, Imperial Guardian, Royal Military Officer and Caribbean Pirate should all draw their weapons together and venture into the demanding Maya instance full of aggressive warriors and dangerous monsters. They will receive back-up in this through the four new pets Hell Wolf, Ice Fairy, Shadow Reaper and Wild Bull. As the trailer shows in conclusion, in ‘Beyond the Horizon’ players will brave just as before, not only on land, but also at sea almost unending dangers and adventures – like for example breath-taking combat in the new arenas or on the high seas.
The new trailer can be seen right away on the official website:
‘Beyond the Horizon’ will be the third and most comprehensive add-on for Bounty Bay Online to date. It provides over 250,000 European players with numerous new features such as the new continent of South America, six new cities, five new character classes, various instances, an expanded pet system with new pets, new PvP arenas and tournaments, new ranking systems and new ships. In keeping with its predecessors, ‘Beyond the Horizon’ will be available to download free of charge.
