Leading online game publisher, GamesCampus, announced that its genre-bending, free-to-play MMORTS, Soul Master will enter open beta tomorrow, Thursday, August 12. Developed by NPluto, Soul Master is an addictive new game that takes the innovation behind customizable "Hero" units in the RTS genre to a whole new level by allowing players to have complete MMORPG-style control over their characters.
"While many MMO's claim to blend genres into a new and unique gameplay experience, Soul Master Gold actually delivers on that promise," said Uyen Uyen Ton Nu, Head of Marketing for GamesCampus. "With easy to learn controls and well-balanced gameplay, Soul Master offers a truly unique and incredibly addictive MMO experience."
Soul Master features a unique combat system that allows players to create structures, progress through technology trees and produce and command units--all while developing a persistent character of their own. With resource-driven RTS combat, Soul Master Gold allows players to create defensive towers, barricades, resource harvesting structures, and unit production facilities while progressing through simplified, traditional RTS tech-trees that let players focus on strategic, active gameplay in both Team and Free-for-All PvP. Players will find the game's PVP highly competitive and a variety of strategies will be necessary for each player to utilize their own strengths in order to win. Players enter the game's battle lobby and can join teams of up to 6 people and enter Team Vs. Team games or Free For All matches playing against either human opponents or AI controlled characters.
Soul Master includes rich item customization systems that enable players to acquire unique stat and skill bonuses both for their personalized avatars, as well as their RTS buildings, production capabilities, and controlled units. In addition to the robust PvP content, Soul Master features a wide range of PVE scenario modes such as defending objectives, escort missions, co-op challenges, boss raids, and AI RTS battles.
