PC Gaming Roundup - March 2, 2009

Today we're starting the morning off a little late (or starting the day early in comparison to previous roundups), and the news machine is spitting out a slim helping. However, we have a few goodies including Atlantica Online and Twelve Sky 2

Twelve Sky 2 in April
Last week Aeria Games made public its intent to acquire Twelve Sky 2, the sequel to the already popular martial arts MMORPG , Twelve Sky. Set for a release next month, the sequel will allow gamers to transfer their character over from the original MMORPG. Interested gamers can also sign up for the closed beta by heading here. " Twelve Sky 2 is a visually stunning, large-scale, multi-faction PvP-based MMORPG. Set in an oriental fantasy themed middle-age China, players can team up and fight against opposing factions for key territories and world dominance." The new installment offers a mount system, trainable pets, elite armor and weapons, and more.

Atlantica Online Loads Up 6th Server
NDOORs Interactive's cool strategic turned-base MMORPG Atlantica Online will offer players a larger world by switching on the game's sixth server, Delphi, on March 6th. " With a 6th server online, Atlantica is prepared to welcome thousands of new users with a smooth gaming experience and allow veteran players the opportunity to start anew and tryout the new character classes." The company said. To celebrate the launch of Delphi, NDOORS will be hosting the ‘Fortnight of the Oracle,’ a two-week series of power-leveling festivities. The company said every player will receive a 120 percent experience boost, and a 150 percent boost on weekends. In addition, the festivities will feature a level-up race, a screenshot content, a quiz bowl, monster hunts and more.

GamersGate Gets Braided
The online digital retail outlet GamersGate said that Interactive Achievement Awards' Casual Game of the Year Braid will be available for purchase and download by the end of March for $14.99. Published by Microsoft Game Studios, Braid is a puzzle-platformer, drawn in a painterly style, where the player manipulates the flow of time in strange and unusual ways. "From a house in the city, journey to a series of worlds and solve puzzles to rescue an abducted princess. In each world, you have a different power to affect the way time behaves, and it is time's strangeness that creates the puzzles."

More to come.
