London and Paris - 27th October 2004 - Paris-based game developer and publisher, Nevrax, and Jolt Online Gaming - Europe's largest independent online gaming network - are pleased to announce players from all over the globe are now able to download the eagerly-awaited Saga of Ryzom MMOG.
The new digital download system will now allow players from ALL territories the ability to obtain the game online, and not just countries without a distribution agreement. The move will further boost already escalating subscriptions to the recently launched MMOG, which is also set to benefit from the newly introduced "Bring a Friend" scheme.
"With all the cold and wet weather about, who wants to travel to the shops to get their hands on the hottest MMORPG this year," said Dominic Silk, CEO of Jolt, "By using the online purchase and download system, exclusive to Jolt, you can be enjoying the lush and sunny sights of Atys in next to no time at all."
Since its highly successful launch in September, The Saga of Ryzom has garnered positive media attention, being called a stand out MMOG that "you'll want to see every inch of" (Gamespy, October 2004). The Saga of Ryzom offers players an engaging storyline, affected by their own actions; a unique new combat and skill system; and a vast, beautiful, dynamic game world to explore.
"This is just the beginning for Ryzom," said David Cohen Corval, CEO of Nevrax, "We have many prosperous years ahead and we recommend players start early to ensure they make their mark on Atys and the future worlds to come. We've always believed a digital download system to be the perfect medium for obtaining the game, and we're glad to now be able to offer it to everyone."
Founded in early 2000, Paris based Nevrax is an online game and software development company that specializes in massively multiplayer online games. Utilizing NeL, its open source platform, Nevrax's team of 50+ engineers and designers have developed their first MMORPG, a science fantasy game entitled Saga of Ryzom, released 09/2004 in Europe and in North America
