Posted on June 22, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Wait, So You’re a Trapped Soul Forced to Fight Evil in The Chosen? (TRAILER)
It took me a few minutes to track down some information about The Chosen, a free-to-play MMO that seems to have recently gone into beta. All that information was not present in the trailer below, which, while interesting, is pretty damn confusing.
Check out the video, and then ask yourself, are you fighting people or monsters, and who are these guys who are capturing warriors’ souls and forcing them to keep fighting (which seems kind of mean)? That’s not really a thing good guys do.
Anyway, from what I can glean, The Chosen is set in China and allows you to choose one of five dynasties and one of six classes when you start it up. The Chosen part refers to a warrior (or perhaps warriors, seeing as this is an MMO) who has the ability to stand against the gods of Evil, who apparently have flying orc-like monsters in their employ. More information is available at The Chosen’s Facebook page, and you might be able to get into the beta by signing up a TheChosenGame.com.
