Shadowbane First Impressions Posted
9:39 AM | Alvaro Radigales | Comment on this story

The popular entertainment and gaming network IGN.com recently posted its first impressions on Shadowbane, the highly-anticipated MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) by Wolfpack Studios.

Shadowbane offers a rich universe with which the player can interact to his heart's desire, performing actions that range from individual combat to city management. Here's a clip from the IGN article:

Grouping plays a major role in Shadowbane. When grouping, you receive a significant experience bonus. A full group of 10 members will gain an approximate 900% bonus to experience - making each kill yield nearly full experience to every group member. This results in extremely rapid leveling. For example, I went from level 1 to 14 as a total newbie, in one playing session. Of course this slows down, but even casual players can gain a level or two per playing session all the way to the soft cap of level 60. Another advantage of the grouping system is maximum size of groups. Since you can invite 10 players per group, it's extremely easy to find a group often in a matter of seconds.
Shadowbane was released by Ubi Soft on March 24 for both Mac OS X and Windows, and is available for order at the IMG Store.
