Durham, USA — May 6, 2005 – Funcom announces `Anarchy Online – Lost Eden', an action-filled new expansion pack for the ultimate sci-fi MMORPG. Set for release in early winter, `Lost Eden' is packed with exciting new features and abilities, including massive orbital battle stations, player controlled battle Mechs, vast PvP upgrades, encounters inside alien motherships, extensive alternative character advancement options and more.
`Lost Eden' sees mankind pulling out all the stops against the alien invaders as gigantic battle stations are deployed in orbit around Rubi-Ka. As fire rains from the heavens humanity finally seems to gain the upper hand. But with great power comes great temptation, and Omni-Tek and the Clans both see the ultimate means to gain total supremacy for their side; the orbital battle stations.
Rubi-Ka, once the birthplace of mankind and the garden of Eden, now a place of havoc and death. Will humanity finally get it right, or will their own aggression see the downfall of both the alien invaders and themselves?
"With `Lost Eden' we are continuing our focus on the unique sci-fi aspects in `Anarchy Online', and we are giving our players extensive new gameplay options" said Game Director Morten Byom. "The ability to raid and control orbital battle stations, steer powerful battle Mechs, fight inside the motherships and new character advancement options should bring great fun to all of our players."
