The Chronicles of Spellborn Lore Revealed
The first part of a new feature series about background story for The Chronicles of Spellborn launched today. In this new series of features, the Dutch developer Spellborn NV reveals the most important key moments of the multi-layered lore to be explored within the game. From the Great Collapse dating back thousands of years in the past to the present New Century players will enter, the featurette introduces the background story in brief. Each week, Spellborn will present a new chapter of the timeline from now on, accompanied by concept art and details on the main events of said period.
After an intensive development and test phase, there’s much more to come in terms of regular news and images of The Chronicles of Spellborn from now on. You can view the first timeline entry talking about the Great Collapse here.
Something interesting that I just found out was that one of my favorite bands, Within Temptation (although I like Nightwish better), wrote three songs for the game, and made the video ‘The Howling’ together with the devs.
With The Chronicles of Spellborn players enter into an impressive online scenario with scenic landscapes, majestic cities and the remnants of an ancient civilization. Alone or with a party of allies, PC adventurers step into a huge fantasy realm consisting of varied shard worlds floating in the magic Deadspell Storm. Those who want to prevail in the grippingly staged combats of The Chronicles of Spellborn need to apply their mighty arsenal of spells, melee and ranged attacks skillfully. Battles with bloodthirsty creatures, hostile peoples and human opponents in PvP battles are waiting. An innovative and tactically challenging combat system with shooter-like controls and rotating skill deck provides a fresh breath of air for the dusty MMORPG genre.
