This week we present to you some brand new screenshots
from the Add-On as well as a detailed description of the Free Mode and Co-OP Mode,
one of the major additions contained in the Add-On.
“Free Game Mode” offers you the chance to play with your own Avatar
against the Computer on a succession of single Maps, with some of them leaning
more towards RPG and some being more RTS oriented. Every time the map is started,
the position of enemy camps and the type of loot you can find may differ.
to the campaign, the maps for the free game can be played in succession, starting
with a lower level and fewer runes and working your way up. You can of course
jump a few maps, but this may make the game harder for you and you may pass
on useful runes, spells or items. Any map can be replayed, as especially the
high level maps offer a range of attractive items, among them the rare set item
On most RTS maps you can choose the starting location for your avatr and thus
appear close to the monument of your favourite race.
Co-op mode, up to three players can jointly conquer a map, facing more and stronger
enemies and sharing their experience points equally. All items that are found
on the map will appear in each player’s inventory, so there is no need
to squabble over loot. Of course you can sell and buy items at the vendors;
there will even be a merchant map – a true shopper’s paradise.
It is always possible to save as it would be in a normal game – however
you will only save your character and his equipment, not the progress on your
map. Characters created in Free Mode however cannot be exchanged with those
from the Single Player campaign, to prevent cheating.
For those looking forward to this expansion, here are a few screenshots to
help pass the time.
