Today, Citadel Studios announced that their sandbox MMORPG Legends of Aria will be arriving on Steam Early Access on December 4th, 2018. Anyone that pre-orders the game between now and December 3rd can take place in a 7-Day Head Start and obtain all of the other Founder’s Packs bonuses including the chance to claim their own plots of land and build their homes before other players.
Legends of Aria will be a player-run world in a modern setting where modding and sandbox style is paramount. As part of the pre-launch celebration, Citadel Studios is holding several contests leading up to the release date. The first contest asks players to submit an answer to the question, “What role will you play?” They can also sign up for their Newsletter to gain automatic additional entries. The winner will receive an ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG Strix Graphics Card and a Lord Founder’s Pack to the game. Two Runners-up will receive Lord Packs on launch day. Players can enter the contest here.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since we began this journey,” said Citadel Studios Founder Derek Brinkmann. “So much has changed since then. We’ve gone from making a smaller scale online RPG to making the large-scale full-on sandbox MMORPG we’ve been dying to play since Ultima Online, Dark Age of Camelot, and EverQuest first made us all believers in the genre years ago. We’ve got even more content and additions planned for the future of Aria, but we’re just excited to finally open the doors and see what the players will do in our world this December.”
Legends of Aria will be released on December 4th, 2018 for Steam Early Access. For more information, visit the official website.
