Ghislaine Le Rhun Gautier, CEO of GOA, added: “Warrior Epic is as enticing to new players as it is to the established community. GOA fully understands the significant time investment European gamers make to their chosen Online multi-player game, which is why True Games has made a long-term commitment to all players to ensure the game stays fresh, challenging, and its universe continues to evolve.”
About Warrior Epic
Warrior Epic is an online, action role-playing game set in an original fantasy universe. In the game, players will assume command of a Warrior Hall from which they manage their characters’ adventures. They can recruit from a wide array of Warrior Classes, each with its own style of play. The Classes and the Hall itself can be upgraded visually as well as functionally. Players adventure together in multi-player campaigns, adventure mode, solo quests and soon, PvP.
One of the most unique aspects of Warrior Epic is that death does not mean the end of a Warrior. Instead, it opens totally new and strategic options for players. The game’s unique Warrior Spirits System enables fallen Warriors to not only be revived at any time at their Hall, but also to be transformed into Spirits that can be bound to weapons to increase and open weapon abilities and skills, or they can be called out to inflict massive damage, depending on player needs.
Unlike most MMOs today, Warrior Epic will offer players a satisfying online experience even if they have only a few hours a week to play. One of the ways Warrior Epic achieves this is by putting a heavy emphasis on focused, session-based missions. These 20-30 minute sessions allow a player to make significant progress in regards to levelling their Warrior, gaining loot, and accomplishing more in a much shorter timeframe than other existing games.
