Frogster Reveals Line-up for the Games Convention

With its two big MMORPG flagships as baggage, Frogster Interactive sets course for Leipzig. On their two-part stand, A10 in hall 5, the Berlin based publisher presents The Chronicles of Spellborn and Runes of Magic. Sixteen branded state-of-the-art test terminals with mega-screens from Frogster's hardware partners Ultraforce and Iiyama will be available for extensive play sessions of each of the two fantasy online role-playing games.

On the Spellborn side, visitors can try out the formerly unpublished PvE zone Cairnkegg, located on the shard realm Ringfell, or jump into PvP arena combat.

Runes of Magic opens the gates to wander and explore the first localized regions of its fantasy realm Taborea. Performing a recurring stage show, game designer Sven Ehrentraut will present the key features of Spellborn, and Taiwanese Lead Producers John & Tony Tang of Runewaker will give an overview of Runes of Magic. Every day visitors can win lots of merchandise and memorabilia at the Frogster stand. Exciting prizes like a Spellborn branded PC, two Spellborn PC cases from Ultraforce as well as an Iiyama 22'' flat-screen monitor can be won in PvP competitions on stage.

At their booth F79 in the business center's hall 2, Frogster is inviting all media representatives to the first hands-on preview of The Chronicles of Spellborn. Developers Pierre-Yves Deslandes, and Matthew Florianz, will guide them to experience first-hand, the unique manual targeting combat system of Spellborn, through an action-oriented mid-level quest chain. Moreover, the exhibition team will present an ancestral quest as a never before seen feature, where players will travel back through time and explore events in the prehistory of the game. John and Tony Tang will show the first zones of Runes of Magic. Editors can get their own impression from the first hands-on check preview of both games.
