Shadowbane Beta Report
6:00 AM | Michael Phillips | Comment on this story

Ubi Soft has posted a report from the closed beta test of their upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game, Shadowbane. Much of the report centers around an ongoing feud between two of the game's major cities, Akalabethia and Comptonia.

Here's a taste:

The war of attrition between the cities of Akalabethia and Comptonia had entered a new level of intensity. For weeks the city of Akalabethia had been fighting a defensive war in order to retain control of the area of control around their city. During that time Bone Dancer had ordered several small raids into Akalabethia’s area of control for the purpose of confusing the defenders. Over time Akalabethian scouts had to attempt to guess whether or not they were defending against a small raiding force with the intent to harass, or if the small force was an advance party for a larger siege force. With the constant swarm of small raids, there was a lot of second-guessing and idle time waiting for siege forces that never arrived. One of the raids on Akalabethia eventually did end up being a front for a new siege attempt, and the Akalabethians were able to discover and put an end to it before it became a serious threat to the city. Tired of fighting a defensive war, Akalabethia finally marched south with a small force to take the battle to Comptonia.
