Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion Announced

This press release from Ubisoft and Wolfpack announces plans for Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion, an upcoming expansion pack for Shadowbane, their MMORPG. Here's a bit on new features and classes in the add-on, which is expected on November 30:
"Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion brings guild warfare and city sieging to an exciting new level with a strategic end-game that is unprecedented in the genre of MMO games. ‘Build an Empire’ was one of the early rallying cries of Shadowbane and with this expansion, our players can do exactly that," said Frank Lucero, Shadowbane’s producer. “Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion brings with it the new Vampire Race, new classes and disciplines, each with special powers and abilities designed to enrich PvP combat. Additionally, graphical improvements and extensive refinements to the existing siege system will enrich play and improve performance.”

In addition to the new strategic systems, Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion will feature extensive new player options centered around an invasion from the Lands of the Dead. Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion marks the first time in an MMORPG that players can play Vampire characters. The Vampires’ clothing and armor will spotlight their supernatural power and allure and demonstrate the appeal of these creatures while exploring a new visual direction for Shadowbane. Their unique powers, strengths, and weakness will add new layers and tactics to the Shadowbane PvP landscape.

I give them props for being one of the very few MMO's that are totally unrestricted PvP. Some people just can't hang in that environment where sitting in a corner pulling dumb AI doesn't work as a skilled human will come and take them out and loot their precious little bitmap swords and armour.
