Asheron's Call Event on the way
Asheron's Call is a popular multiplayer RPG in the vein of other online masterpieces, such as the highly addictive EverQuest. What makes Asheron's Call particularly unique is that there is no set goal. Essentially, you cannot beat the game in the traditional sense of reaching an end to a story.
This gives Asheron's Call a real world type of on the fly quality. Players can create their characters from scratch and alter everything from their skills to appearance. Anything can happen at any time, and you never know what that will be. To bottom line it, playing this game is often fresh, as you rarely see the same thing repeated too much.
So in continuing the unique qualities of this title, Microsoft announced that they will soon be changing up Asheron's Call. So far all they have posted up at the official website is this prediction of what is to come.
"Temperatures have been steadily dropping on the isle of Dereth with expectations that even the desert will soon freeze. While many are planning winter celebrations with holiday festivals, others believe something more sinister is behind the change in climate. The truth will be revealed in coming days."
Those who play this game on the MSN Gaming Zone are in for a treat when this happens. My personal hypothesis is that the sinister force behind the climate change on the isle of Dereth is the manifestation of the anger in children that can't buy Pokemon Yellow because it is sold out across the United States. But thats just me.
