Irvine, CA - Sept. 3, 2009 -
Atlus Online’s fantasy-steampunk massively multiplayer online role-playing
game (MMORPG), Neo Steam: The
Shattered Continent, today revealed two new areas to the game, Flame Basin
and the Colosseum. With additions and updates streaming in without fail, Atlus
Online strives to please by maintaining a dynamic environment for its players.
“We have the most engaged online community out there, and we want to reward them
for being such an integral part of our portal by continually adding to it,” says
Alice Ly, Online Marketing and Portal Manager, Atlus U.S.A., Inc.
Citizens of Chrysalis, prepare to throw down with the deviant Subject M-277, the
big boss of Flame Basin. This formerly lush forest, at one time called
Sylverland, is now a dry, charred landscape. Once a fiercely protected
ecosystem, Sylverland was ravaged by the greed of the industrial boom, as
loggers tore down one tree after another until the basin was a barren wasteland.
Lurking in the center of Flame Basin, players will encounter the iniquitous
boss, Subject M-277, an experiment of bioengineered creatures gone wrong. This
ominous lot, originally created to protect civilization, promptly turned on its
creators and exists to further destroy the basin. Peril-seekers can also conduct
their own small-scale cloning experiments, for a small fee, building their own
monsters, piece by piece.
The faint of heart need not apply to battle it out in Neo Steam’s Colosseum. At
last, players will have the opportunity to demonstrate their top-level skills in
this brutal arena. All who enter will have to prove their merit by withstanding
the vigorous downpour of foes the Colosseum will bestow upon them. With no
penalty for dying, the Colosseum offers boundless opportunities for players to
practice their combat skills against some of the most robust enemies Neo Steam
has to offer. Players don’t have anything to lose, except their pride on the
blood-stained Colosseum floor.
