Mad Otter Games wants gamers to get into the spirit of Halloween by opening an account and playing the free-to-play MMO called Villagers & Heroes, a casual World of Warcraft style clone. How will they tempt you to play the game? How about with some free cash shop goodies?
The PR sent out a batch of codes for a free starter pack to help gamers get some decent footing in the MMO and hit the ground running.
The game has been updated to accommodate the celebration of Halloween and they have dazzled and spruced up the game's environments to reflect the spookiest time of the year.
For those of you who have no idea what this game is actually about and why you should care, the general gist is described in the press release as such...
“Villagers and Heroes, a fantasy role-playing game with a vast multiplayer world, is easy to learn, has an intuitive user-interface, and features a wonderfully rich gameplay with components rarely seen before in any genre of game. Providing thousands of hours of exploration and challenge, the Seven Realms, populated with quirky characters and ghoulish beasties, offers hundreds of quests and an array of different gameplay styles.”
If the description above comes across as generic and you still have absolutely no idea what Villagers & Heroes is about, there's at least a decent trailer that further helps explain the game. Well, technically it just visually puts into perspective the very same description you just read above. Check it out below.
All right, so now that we've firmly established what Viallgers & Heroes is, I'm sure you're now curious about getting your hands on some of those starter pack gifts, eh?
You get exclusive starter gear for whatever class you decide you want to play, a cosmetic appearance pack for your character that enables you to look stylish and hip, an extra bag space buff for 30 additional item slots in your backpack, and a smorgasbord of potions for health, spirit and Gnogmenting sockets.
If you're already playing the game and you figure you want to create a new character on a new account and get some goodies, this might be a smart way of getting a good start in the game. Alternatively, if you've never played (or heard of) Villages & Heroes, you can hop right in with some free gear just for the heck of it.
