Attendees EGX 2019 at London’s ExCel will be given the first opportunity in Europe to get hands-on with RAN: Lost Islands, an online multiplayer combat game set in the 16th Century. Publisher Zodiac Interactive and developer Jolly Roger Game Studio (Tiger Knight: Empire War) are also delighted to reveal that Early Access for the game will launch later this year on Steam.
RAN: Lost Islands, an online multiplayer that thrusts 100 players against one another during the thrilling Age of Discovery. As outcasts battling to survive on the high seas, they seek magnificent ancient treasure and legendary artefacts beneath cursed islands. Great courage and wisdom will be needed to eliminate all enemies – by fair means or foul – and triumphantly return home from the swashbuckling adventure.
Whether discovering high-level equipment or searching for treasure and artefacts, players will need to collect multiple clues at landmarks hidden on the islands such as temples, natural caves, and the walled city, among many others. Some ancient holy items are buried in relics or under shipwrecks.
Three warring factions; The European Empire, Ming Dynasty and Japanese Shogunate, featuring 9 distinct classes provide a wealth of gameplay options. Switch between classes using different combat styles to gain fortune and glory.
Sail the high seas, bombarding the enemy with your cannons, or ambush and overrun a mighty vessel with visceral melée combat – in RAN: Lost Islands even the terrifying excitement of underwater combat becomes part of the action. With an arsenal of period weapons from different factions, and an exhilarating mix of traditional ACT combat controls and combo techniques, your mastery of skills and strategy shall ultimately prevail.
But beware, because you must face not only other players but also powerful enemies such as the survivors of exotic hunts, wild scavengers in the woods, and even humongous sea monsters!
RAN: Lost Islands is coming to Steam Early Access in late 2019, and is available to wishlist now. A PS4 version is currently in development.
