Ubisoft Announces Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion
8:58 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Ubisoft recently announced that another expansion pack will be forthcoming for its MMORPG Shadowbane. Titled Throne of Oblivion, the expansion will add a number of new features, races, and classes to the mix.

A high point in the expansion seems to be the addition of undead legions, including the ability to play as part of a vampire race:

In addition to the new strategic systems, Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion will feature extensive new player options centered around an invasion from the Lands of the Dead. Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion marks the first time in an MMORPG that players can play Vampire characters. The Vampiresí clothing and armor will spotlight their supernatural power and allure and demonstrate the appeal of these creatures while exploring a new visual direction for Shadowbane.
In addition, new classes such as the Necromancer and Nightstalker will be available, and existing disciplines and classes will also be tweaked in response to the addition of the undead forces.

Throne of Oblivion currently has a target date of November 30th, with a retail price of $19.99.

In related news, players on the Corruption, Mourning, and Vengeance servers may want to get a little more playtime in this weekend:

After the morning restart on Friday, September 10th, we will be increasing the experience gain on the Corruption, Mourning and Vengeance servers. This will revert back to normal with the restart on Monday, September 13th.
Ubisoft also notes that the server instability problem has been identified and will be implemented once it passes testing.
