Funcom have announced the Lost Eden expansion for the MMORPG Anarchy Online.
Lost Eden will be released early this winter and will include new features and abilities including huge battlefield mechs players can control and gameplay in dungeons onboard alien motherships – check the list of features in the press release here.
The game director for Anarchy Online, Morten Byom, posted a letter to fans about the expansion:
The first thing I set as criteria for this expansion was to continue enhancing the Science Fiction setting of the game and even taking it into the space surrounding Rubi-Ka. Secondly I wanted to enhance the strategic possibilities while keeping it easily available and enjoyable for all players at all levels.
The expansion ‘Lost Eden’ continues the story of Anarchy Online, bringing the population of Rubi-Ka closer to their ultimate goal of cleansing the universe of the Alien plague that has swept into their world, bringing with it death and destruction. Now that the ICC has granted the rights to utilize military weaponry to ensure the safety of Rubi-Ka the players will finally be able to leave their defensive position and take the fight to the aliens by boarding their massive mother ships and learn more about the invaders.
With this new expansion people will be able to become stronger and tougher than ever before by focusing their time and energy into perfecting existing abilities and researching new powers. Equipment can be enhanced and more powerful weapons created through research and development. Falling behind in the arms race could prove fatal for your side!
