SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Oct. 2, 2013 –
The curtain has begun to pull back on the rich world of Azuria.
Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of
free-to-play online games, has revealed the backstory and major
Aura Kingdom, leading up to the current events at the
start of the ambitious massively multiplayer online role-playing
Azuria is a vibrant world full of colorful creatures and deep
history. It is comprised of three realms: Terra, home to mortal
races; Pandemonium, land of demons; and the heavenly Aura Kingdom.
Though players will spend their time adventuring through Terra,
creatures from Pandemonium and the legendary spirits known as
Eidolons from Aura Kingdom will emerge from their home realms to be
part of the far-reaching tale.
Imagine being thrust without warning into a desperate defense
against a horde of rampaging demons, only to awaken in a cold sweat
with fleeting visions of the dream left behind as ominous portents
of events to come. This is how the adventure in
Aura Kingdom begins; players soon become Envoys of Gaia,
individuals gifted with unique powers and destined to shape the
future of the world.
Along the way they will advance through a multitude of gorgeous
zones, each with distinctive looks. Beginning in the seaside town
of Port Skandia, players will make their way through the quaint
verdant landscape of Crescent Hill, the pirate bastion and black
market center of Helonia Coast, and much more. Eventually the
journey leads to Terra’s stalwart capital city of Navea,
where the game’s most important quests begin to unfold.
Aura Kingdom is free to download, and like all Aeria Games
titles, is free-to-play. Players can sign up for beta now at
