Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Voyages into Retail Stores

Sony Online Entertainment and Sigil Games Online say that the massively multiplayer online role-playing game, "Vanguard: Saga of Heroes", is now available at retail outlets across North America and Europe.

"Vanguard: Saga of Heroes" features stunning environments reminiscent of classic fantasy oil paintings, as well as three fully-developed layers of gameplay (diplomacy, adventuring and crafting), along with a comprehensive character creation tool. Three vast continents are available for exploration, and players will enjoy a fully immersive experience as they delve into new lands riddled with powerful items, dangerous enemies, and boundless adventure. As players reach higher levels, they can traverse the world freely on flying dragons, voyaging across far-reaching lands in a breathtaking, non-instanced world. The game is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB.

...The only limits are your own in Telon. The adventurous can choose from multiple paths of exploration within the three spheres of advancement: adventuring, crafting, and diplomacy. Players can delve into the mysteries of Telon, and embark upon quests to slay monstrous beasts locked deep inside rugged mountain ranges. Those with a quick mind can use diplomacy to convince kings to move armies and change the course of history. With player-crafted boats, flying mounts, and customizable player housing, "Vanguard" offers players a world of their own choosing.
