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

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina.—February 27, 2013—NGD Studios announced today that the popular 3D fantasy MMORPG Champions of Regnum will makes its debut in Steam’s Free to Play category. Additionally, the game’s extensive expansion and revamp will also launch today.

“Our previous experience launching Bunch of Heroes on Steam was incredible. We’re very happy and proud to bring Champions of Regnum, our Free to Play MMORPG to Steam. After many years of hard work, today sets the stage for great things ahead. Stay tuned for even more good news!” said Andrés Chilkowski, Studio Director of NGD Studios.

With significantly restructured game play mechanics as well as new features and content, Champions of Regnum is an evolution of the Realms Online and Regnum Online franchises into a single global brand. Champions of Regnum is the third major expansion in the franchise. 

In addition to all of the new content and revamped gameplay that players enjoyed in the recent VIP Preview event, today’s launch adds a new Capture the Flag instanced mode and a new map for Team Deathmatch, as well as an updated Steam client. The character faces have been completely redesigned, and it is now possible for players to gain Champion Coins by winning matches in the Battlezone modes. A Hall of Fame to honor the most glorious Champions of the Battlezones has also been added.

Other major changes in Champions of Regnum include:

  • A complete overhaul of the Invasion system to now involve a “Capture the Flag”-like system of gathering enemy Relics and summoning Ancient Dragons.
  • New Instances with a corresponding Matchmaking System open up a universe of possibilities for each hero to stand out and become one of the Champions.
  • New visually stunning Battlezones designed especially for team play increase the opportunity for Realm v Realm (RvR) combat in the game and include new game modes such as Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and more.
Champions of Regnum is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, and is free to play. For more information, visit http://www.championsofregnum.com
