Freeverse Updates MMORPG Arcane Arena
8:08 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Freeverse Software has released a major update to their 2D massively multilplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Arcane Arena, bringing the title to version 1.1 and adding a number of new features. The game, which has no monthly fee beyond the initial $30 price tag, now includes a long list of gameplay tweaks and even bug fixes.

Here's a small sampling from the 1.1 update change log

Chat text and battle messages are color coded for faster parsing.
Arrow keys allow movement while chatting, like when you end up in battle or have to run away in the middle of a conversation.
New Viewplugins with Anti-Lag and Show-Me-Everything features for slow modem players and high level characters in gigantic battles - control graphics shadowing and spell effects based on the number of characters on screen.
Powerful new moderator commands to help locate, rescue, assist, punish and destroy players in need or those unwisely making trouble.
New weapon and armor items some with lower strength requirements for newbies, some just for fun - you may need to browse around quite a bit to find the rarer selections.
Boss monsters are smarter, can dig though walls, change targets, use spells more wisely - all more challenge for you higher ups.
You can download the update for either OS X or Classic versions of Arcane Arena now, or check out the full 42MB demo if you're curious about the title.
