[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

 

Champions of Regnum is the latest expansion to the beloved Regnum/Realms Online franchise. The full release of this intense free to play RvR MMORPG is coming soon, but a VIP Preview for existing and former players will start on Dec 20, 2012.

One of the largest changes coming is a complete overhaul of the Invasion system, the very core of Regnum Online's intense gameplay. Players will also be able to use combat skills in new PvP and RvR instances that will expand the content available.

The new Instances open up a universe of possibilities for each hero to stand out and become one of the Champions of Regnum. Finally, with this release, we plan to consolidate both Realms Online and Regnum Online into a new global brand...Champions of Regnum...starting a whole new era for the game.

 

New Invasion rules: Relics & Dragons: 

Unique magical relics that can be found in each fort and castle will be the basis of the new invasion dynamics. The enemy will now become vulnerable when its full set of ancient relics is stolen.

In addition, if a particular Realm collects all of an enemy's relics, there will be an opportunity to summon its own legendary ancient Dragon!

Alasthor, Vesper, or Tenax, will haunt the enemy borders to help each Realm capture the enemy's Realm Gate and achieve the ultimate goal: Invasion!

Instanced based PVP and RVR Action: 

Champions of Regnum brings a new form of combat gameplay to the world with the introduction of Instanced Coliseums and Battlezones paired with a new Matchmaking system. This matchmaking system allows players to be auto-matched for 1vs1 private challenges in the new Coliseums.

The Battlezones, on the other hand will be the most visually compelling and strategically challenging battle sites featuring Multi-realm battles hosting up to 24 players in a 3-way battle for glory!

  

For an overview of the Coliseums and Battle Zones, check out the trailer at the Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/ChampionsOfRegnum More details on all the updated content can be found at http://championsofregnum.gamesamba.com   

New content:

With the release of new instance-based combat, a whole new set of equipment awaits for those who prove themselves to be the best! Also, new armors and weapons are being added for high level players.

If you are a fan of large scale realm vs. realm battles or want to challenge the leaderboard via smaller group or individual PvP, jump into Champions of Regnum... Battles await!
