The team at Citadel Studios has announced that the title formerly known as Shards Online has undergone a transformation and been renamed Legends of Aria. The transformation also extends beyond just the name itself.
Essentially, LoA is Shards Online. But on a much grander scale. Legends of Aria is a fully-fledged MMORPG. The map is about to become much larger than our current alpha, mounts will be added, more dungeons, more crafting, a new archery skill line – more everything. For a game on a much grander scale, we needed a name on a much grander scale and tied to the lore.
In addition to the announcement, we have a new teaser trailer for our viewing pleasure so lets watch, shall we…
The teaser, created for PAX East, shows a number of scenes from the game that highlight the environments while mounted, a modular housing system and the full loot PvP that will be part of the title. Legends of Aria will be on display at PAX East 2017, as part of the Indie Megabooth.
