Paris, FRANCE - January 17, 2006
Nevrax, the developer and publisher of the massively-multiplayer science fantasy game The Saga of Ryzom and the upcoming expansion Ryzom Ring, announced today that it has received the coveted Reader's Choice Award for Best Story from MMORPG.com.
"We couldn't be more thrilled at receiving this award from MMORPG.com," said Nevrax founder and creative director David Cohen-Corval. "We've always strived to make the intricate story of sci-fi meets fantasy a compelling one. Now we know that MMORPG.com readers agree!"
Launched smoothly in September of 2004, The Saga of Ryzom quickly found its niche MMG audience in Europe and English-speaking countries. Building upon that success, Nevrax plans to release Ryzom Ring, a free expansion, to their hit MMG in Q1, enabling all subscribers to create their own interactive areas in Ryzom's online world.
