Ships Ahoy - Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

This press release announces the North American and European availability of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Sigil Games Online's MMORPG:

San Dego, CA – January 30, 2007 - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) and Sigil Games Online announced today that the hotly anticipated massively multiplayer online role-playing game, “Vanguard: Saga of Heroes(TM),” is now available at retail outlets across North America and Europe. The game is also offered for digital download at www.station.com.

“From day one, 'Vanguard' was created with the vision of developing an MMO with an unparalleled feeling of immersion,” said Brad McQuaid, CEO of Sigil Games Online. “To accomplish this, we included innovative features that break the shackles of the traditional MMO experience. Our diplomacy system, for example, is one of many original concepts we employed to invigorate the MMO game play experience.”

“Vanguard: Saga of Heroes” features stunning environments reminiscent of classic fantasy oil paintings, as well as three fully-developed layers of gameplay (diplomacy, adventuring and crafting), along with a comprehensive character creation tool. Three vast continents are available for exploration, and players will enjoy a fully immersive experience as they delve into new lands riddled with powerful items, dangerous enemies, and boundless adventure. As players reach higher levels, they can traverse the world freely on flying dragons, voyaging across far-reaching lands in a breathtaking, non-instanced world.

“Vanguard’s beauty coupled with the sheer size and scale of the world is like nothing else experienced in today’s games. It’s poised to make a significant contribution to the genre, which is one of many reasons SOE is looking forward to adding this exciting title to our line up of games included in the all-in-one Station Access(TM) subscription package,” Laura Naviaux, Sr. Brand Manager, Sony Online Entertainment.

Rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB, the game is available for the suggested retail price of US $49.99. The limited edition version with unique content for collectors is also available for a suggested retail price of $89.99. The North American subscription fee for “Vanguard: Saga of Heroes” is $14.99 a month, with discounts offered for longer subscription commitments. For players who purchase “Vanguard: Saga of Heroes” and have an SOE Station Access subscription, the subscription to “Vanguard: Saga of Heroes” will be included in the $24.99 monthly fee. “Vanguard: Saga of Heroes” has also been added to SOE’s universal game card available at retail in 30- and 90-day subscription periods.

the game totally locks up on me after 30-45 minutes of playing. i can't even alt tab out or get into taskmgr to kill the process, i have to reboot. bad coding? i can see why the beta people said it wasn't ready.

i have seriously choppy frame rates when there are a lot of mobs or buildings, i already turned down a bunch of graphics options.

BUT, I find the game is pretty fun and it is great being in a MMO at launch. This game might tide me over until conan or star trek online.
