FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 17, 2007
hell-tech, a Greek publishing and distribution company, has announced that it has secured the publishing rights to thrilling PC-based RPG "Loki". The game will be released by the ambitious Greek publisher in Q2 2007, throughout Greece, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, FYROM, South Africa and Turkey.
Loki is a hack 'n' slash, action-RPG developed by the French game studio Cyanide. A fantasy voyage through the great mythologies, Loki allows the player to take on the role of one of the 4 heroes of the game, each drawn from a different mythology : a fierce Greek warrior a mighty Norse fighter, a powerful Egyptian magician or an Aztec shaman who masters the secrets of the spirit world.
The on-screen character evolves by completing quests (over 50) or by destroying enemies along the way. Weapons and armour that he/she acquires can be customised at a blacksmith's workshop, improving technical or magical properties and, in doing so, creating original items of great value. In each of the four worlds the player will become part of a great historical or mythological event : the fall of Troy, the Spanish invasion of Central America, Ragnarok, ....) and he/she will encounter great historical or mythological characters : Achilles, Thor, Akhenaton, Cortes, ...
Whatever hero the player adopts, he must come to the aid of the gods he worships. He will come to realise that behind the chaos that is threatening his world lies Seth, the Egyptian god of darkness and evil, who has returned to life. The hero must therefore undertake an epic journey across the various epochs and myths.
Key Selling Points:An epic adventure across 4 great mythologies - Greek, Aztec, Egyptian and Norse - allowing the player to live through many of the key episodes that mark these cultures (the siege of Troy, Ragnarok, ......) and setting him in the path of the most prominent figures within each episode (Achilles, Thor, Akhenaton.....) Choose from 4 different heroes with radically different attributes and powers. Each hero has a vast array of spells and skills to help him through his quest. More than 100 monsters of all shapes and sizes Dare to take on mythological creatures that struck fear into the hearts of our ancestors (Fenrir the giant wolf, the Minotaur in his labyrinth, Medusa.......) Never play the same game twice due to the random generation of levels. Customise weapons and armour by visiting the blacksmith's forge. Disassemble and rebuild different weapons with new attributes and increase their magical powers with runes. Play the adventure with your friends as part of a group or take-on others in PvP mode inside a dedicated on-line arena or dice with death by taking-up one of the on-line challenges. hell-tech will release "Loki" in Q2 2007, throughout Greece, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, FYROM, South Africa and Turkey.
