Gamescampus, which has released some of the better free MMOs, has announced their newest venture titled Legend of Edda. The new game puts players in the middle of a battle for Mount Olympus. Pick your side and fight to the death!
This new MMO is all out war! Taking place during the ancient battle between the gods and the titans. Gamers play through the game as Heroes, descendants of the Olympians. You have some special powers that make you stronger that regular humans so that you can aid the Olympians or the Titans in their war for control of the mountain.
For readers who may not have studied Greek mythology, there was a time that Zeus, King of the Gods, banished the titans into the deepest part of Hades where they remained trapped until they finally escaped. The game takes place right after the titans escape. They have approached all the heroes hoping that you will join their cause and help them fight the Olympians. The Olympians also approach the heroes, trying to convince them to help defend Mount Olympus and keep the rightful beings in charge.
The game itself is a very constant fast paced PvP battle. You, along with other members of the side you choose will fight against members of the other team. There are three types of battles that you will fight in. Personal battles, guild battles and PvP which allows players to attack members of the opposite team any time they like. There are classes and different character types you can choose from at the start of the game. These include Warrior, Swordsman, Assassin, Archer, Cleric and Wizard. In addition to the regular game play, gamers also get to enjoy other modes of play like questing and pets.
The characters in the game all resemble chibis but the rest of the world around them is beautifully animated, giving an odd anime feeling to the game. Legend of Edda is another MMO that you should take a look at if you’re bored with your current games.
