9:25 AM | John Rousselle | Comment on this story

Now that the upcoming multiplayer online role-playing game Shadowbane has entered a new phase of beta testing, Wolfpack Studios and Ubi Soft are continuing the tradition of beta journals with a new entry on the Shadowbane web site entitled "The Call of Saedron." Told in-character from the perspective of a male elf warrior, this entry takes us to a mysterious temple in the Vargill Swamp, and is accompanied by eight new screenshots. Here is an excerpt:

The stepped forms that towered overhead appeared to be some sort of temple complex. As Ren studied the statues and intricate carvings, a scaled beast launched into an attack. Ren drew his curved blades and prepared for the onslaught. His long-time training as a warrior provided the skills he needed to survive, and ultimately conquer this threat to his life. He would not be meat in the belly of an alligator when his patron called him onward.

More dangers awaited inside the temple as Scaly Ones fought ferociously against the invasion of their sanctified ground. A seemingly endless stream of lizard men poured forth to combat the elf. Panting with exertion, Ren evaluated the situation. Despite his efforts to answer Saedronís call, he seemed no closer to that goal. This place held no answers. Turning from the temple Ren headed further into the depths of the swamp.

In a recent IRC chat, Sean Dahlberg of Wolfpack and Chris Mancil of Ubi Soft confirmed that a Mac OS X version of Shadowbane is in the works and that they plan to add more Mac users to the beta test in the near future.
