Players can visit the newly-launched teaser website at http://realmofthetitans.aeriagames.com and sign up for a chance to participate in an early sneak peek of the game.

The game is meticulously designed to reward teamwork and tactics, and encourage fluid and fast-paced competitive gameplay.
Apart from offering players dynamic battlefields, enhanced item purchasing, and the return of key DotA features, ROTT also includes:
· In-Depth Ranking Features – Level up in the game while making your way up the leaderboards by defeating higher-ranked players.
· Advanced Matchmaking System – In ROTT, you can automatically be matched up with other suitable partners and competitors.

Tales of Pirates II is making a splash with players in Closed Beta. Pirates around the world can experience the joy of sailing into uncharted waters and battling against many formidable foes in search of lost treasures. While any pirate can demonstrate his might by using brute force against his foes, what sets the great ones apart is their inner strength. This will be put to the ultimate test in the game’s new instance, the Tribulation of Faith.
Tribulation of Faith
Courageous pirates who set out on this spiritual pilgrimage will journey to the plane of their inner soul. There they must face their greatest fears. Wave after wave of monsters from their own psyche will attack until the seeds of darkness and self-doubt planted in the pirates’ souls are overcome. This is no task for the faint of heart.
A Skeleton in the Closet
At the beginning of the instance, a horde of hideous monsters spawns. Players must defeat them quickly, because a new wave of evil creatures will appear every 100 seconds whether the earlier ones have been eliminated or not. As the waves mount, the resulting chaos can overwhelm the most powerful pirates. Even successful pirates can succumb when faced with so little time to rest. During the 10th and 20th waves, the pirates will come face to face with two of their greatest nightmares. If they survive long enough, they will finally meet the seed of evil in their soul, the skeleton in their closet, in the 25th and final wave. Read more
Declare your own kingdom in the one-of-a-kind free-to-play MMORPG King of Kings 3. With the start of the game’s closed beta testing phase this coming Monday, gamigo will be opening up the world of King of Kings 3 to players from North America and Europe, who can discover the incredible depth of the game and the many types of warfare available against other players and guilds. Players can register via the official website.
King of Kings 3 redefines the idea of guilds in an online RPG, expanding upon it greatly. Players first join together to form a guild, later they can band together with other guilds to form a legion and complete an epic quest to create their own kingdom. Every guild, legion, and kingdom is leveled up by the players, earning it more access to features of the game.
At the start of their adventuring career, players can choose from three basic classes. More specializations become available during the course of the game, with a total of 27 classes available to choose from. The hunters and gatherers among the players will be especially excited about the wealth of equipment available for their characters. An added appeal is the ability to build cities with a wealth of buildings and other objects available. Houses can also be built and decorated to suit each player’s taste.
The features of King of Kings 3 at a glance:
- Brilliantly designed fantasy world full of variety
- Comprehensive PvE content with loads of quests and minigames
- Epic RvR warfare between kingdoms and intense PvP combat
- Multi-leveled guild system with guilds, legions, and kingdoms
- Unique housing and town building system
Epic battles, sprawling cities, and warring kingdoms locked in a never-ending struggle for power. King of Kings 3, the newest instalment of the popular Taiwanese MMORPG series, is considered one of the best releases of 2009 and captivates millions of players in Asia. In addition to holding the European publishing rights, gamigo is proud to announce that it now holds the North American license for the game.
“As a globally-focused publisher, our aim is to be able to offer our games in all key markets,” says Patrick Streppel, member of gamigo’s executive board. “King of Kings 3 is one of the highlights of our portfolio. The emphasis of the game is on PvP battle and the extensive guild features, such as the building of guild towns and guild warfare, are unparalleled in the realm of free-to-play gaming.”
The game’s developing studio, Lager, and gamigo have been working hard the past year to localise the game for Western markets. The plot of the game has been completely rewritten and the seven fantasy realms are based on medieval powers, giving players from Europe and North America the opportunity to go into battle for their nation. A complete re-balancing reduces grinding and now allows players to reach the highlights of the game, PvP and guild gameplay, more quickly.
Thanks to the game’s complex and multilayered guild system, guilds band together first to form legions, next kingdoms, and finally alliances to wage war against enemy kingdoms and territories. Up to 10,000 players compete simultaneously in truly epic RvR battles to determine the fate of the guild towns and realms. Only the bravest warrior will come out on top and become the ruler of the entire realm, the fabled King of Kings.
King of Kings 3 is expected to go into Closed Beta testing in the second quarter of 2010. To participate in Closed Beta testing, visit the game’s official website: http://kok3.gamigo.com

LEGO® Universe is coming to life at CES 2010 with hands-on demos, beta sign ups, and the debut game trailer. Booth visitors can also meet LEGO fans helping to co-create the game alongside the professional development team. The first MMOG – massively-multiplayer online game – based on the LEGO play experience, LEGO Universe will launch on the PC during the second half of 2010.
CES takes place in the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 7-10, 2010, and LEGO Universe will be in North Hall, booth #5421. This is the first time that hands-on demos will be made available.
With a creative and building focus, LEGO Universe invites players to explore, battle, make friends, and flex their imaginations with the brick in a vibrant online world. Developed by The LEGO Group and NetDevil, LEGO Universe is a family-friendly online game, appropriate for players aged eight and above. The LEGO brick lies at the center of the experience, and several levels of building are available, from simple gameplay-oriented challenges all the way up to sophisticated brick-by-brick building.
Co-creation with the LEGO fan community is an important element of the development process, and a group of adult fans known as LUPs (LEGO Universe partners) are working alongside the professional team to build content for LEGO Universe. Representatives from the LUP program will be in the CES booth to discuss co-creation and demonstrate building tools.
