Otherland at gamigo and a massive content update for the Steam

Hamburg, March 31, 2016 – Otherland, the Online RPG based on Tad Williams's famous novels, is available on Steam as an early access version with a brand-new update including three factions, various game optimizations, and numerous new quests.

Otherland's most important new feature is the much-anticipated introduction of factions. From now on, players will have the chance to actively take part in the conflict between the Red and White Armies – and the Hackers will also play an important role. Traders of the corresponding factions will provide players with epic endgame gear that will be essential for the dungeons and raids currently in development. Also part of the update are a raise of the level cap up to level 60, a total of 90 all-new daily quests, 20 new locations, optimized enemy skills and balancing, 12 new Mars quests, and a re-worked SOMA drop rate.

Additionally, the update will fix a number of display problems, improve the overall performance of the location 8Squared, and include extensively optimized collision models and detection as well as character and NPC pathfinding.

In the MMO Otherland, the players explore a gigantic multiverse composed of various fantasy and sci-fi worlds and constantly improve their extraterrestrial equipment to succeed in challenging fights. 4 character classes, PvE and PvP battles, an action-oriented combat system, 5 unique locations, a virtual home for every player, and clan wars in individually designed worlds will make Otherland fans lose all sense of time and space. The game's story, a sequel to the famous novels, is a treat for both fantasy and science fiction enthusiasts.

The complete official patch notes can be viewed on the Steam page for Otherland. (http://store.steampowered.com/app/376310/?l=english)
