Who needs to go home and treat games like work when it’s the middle of the summer? Let’s all take a cue from Echo of Soul and head out to the beach for a bit of sand and fun. The recently-resurrected fantasy MMORPG recently kicked off its summer event on Stingray Island, where players can take a break from nonstop fighting to engage in a bit of frivolities (for rewards, of course).
This is a gated event, however: “Since it wouldn’t do to show up on the beach in one’s full armor, players have to obtain appropriate beach garments before being allowed entry to the sunny island world. Summery quests await the beachgoers who can explore the magnificent Manta Reef, crack coconuts, have water balloon fights, and much more.”
Echo of Soul was brought back to life last fall in North America by Gamigo. Right now through August 6th, the title can be purchased for less than a buck on Steam.
