Rubies of Eventide Goes Live

Rubies of Eventide Goes Live is the press release with word that Cyber Warrior's "bold new massively multiplayer RPG" is online. According to the announcement a retail launch will come later this year, but in the meantime the game client can be downloaded, and used for a 10-day free trial before incurring their $14.95 monthly fee (long term discounts are available). Here's a bit:

About Rubies of Eventide: Rubies of Eventide is a promising example of change in the MMORPG industry. As a second generation massively-multiplayer game, Rubies defies the "Everquest" template by bringing back the classic strategic RPG turn-based combat, with a twist. Rubies unique combat mode is an "asynchronous real-time turn-based hybrid combat." For players this means planning moves strategically with more attention to tactical rather than split-second decisions. Rubies of Eventide has seven player races and over 100 starting professions to choose from. With this system, no one is ever locked into a stereotypical role based on his or her choice of race and can develop their skills in-game, however they please.
