Yesterday, Drago Entertainment announced that Otherland’s – or rather, Otherland Next’s, as the Tad Williams MMO appears to have gotten a rebrand – next big thing, an expansion dubbed Fire Isle, is live. It boasts eight new questing areas, 90 quests, and a ton of new weapons and items. It also boasts eight cinematics, which might be the first time I’ve ever seen a game issue that specific stat. Now that it’s out, the team has been drumming up player attention with the sort of teaser posts one might have expected before the launch rather than after, but if you’re not playing already, maybe they’ll entice you.
“Fire Isle is our most ambitious addition to the game yet and it features a complex and vast storyline combining the NeoGrail, Dark Army and a full-blown civil war between the Fire Army generals,” Drago writes in its post today. “While the war for 5Isle continues we venture back to the Fire Isle to recruit the legendary Fire Army. Dive deep into the civil war between the generals, help the rebel forces and uncover what makes the fire people a force to be reckoned with. If you fail, there will be no stopping the Celestial Dragon. With the release yesterday we have opened 5Isle’s new region Fire Isle.”
