Steampunk-Themed MMORPG Now Live, Choose Your Faction and Reclaim the Planet
burda:ic, a leading publisher of online games worldwide, today announced the official launch of highly anticipated, Steampunk-themed Fantasy MMORPG, ARGO Online. After months of extensive testing through Closed Beta and Open Beta phases, the post-apocalyptic Earth of the 23rd century is now open to all players who dare to take on its perils, teaming up with thousands of others in a race to help their chosen faction dominate the war-ravaged future world.
Survivors of World War IV, a perilous and destructive conflict that brought the Earth to its knees, banded together and learned to survive in the harsh conditions that covered the planet. Over time, these inhabitants divided into two groups, the tech-savvy Noblian and the nature-loving Floresslah, each advocating their own method to reclaim the Earth. Divided by their differences, Noblian and Floresslah have now separated completely, each looking to control the planet’s ultimate resource: Earthdium. Only time will decide which side will prevail.
“Following an intense testing phase and a lot of work from the entire team here at burda:ic, we are now proud to present an outstanding new MMO title to our players: ARGO Online,” said Ingo Griebl, CEO of burda:ic GmbH. “With its gigantic, innovative game world and first-class support in combination with our technically powerful platform alaplaya, ARGO Online closes the gap between free-to-play and subscription-based MMOs.”
Achim Kaspers, CEO of burda:ic GmbH, added: “It’s hard to believe that ARGO Online is actually the ninth free-to-play game that we have launched through alaplaya. We are positive that we can provide players on both sides of the Atlantic with a fantastic, gripping game experience, as we release the game simultaneously in Europe and North America in five languages today.”
