|Traditionally, the weeks that lead to E3 are a bit slow, with many companies saving their news for the event. At MMORPG.com, we have bucked that tradition. All this week we will be spotlighting Perpetual Entertainment’s upcoming MMORPG, Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising, with an exclusive, highly focused look at never before revealed details each day. Today we introduce you to the game, set loosely in 300 BC. In Gods and Heroes players find themselves playing the role of epic heroes descended from the gods and imbued with some of their powers.
With such high birth comes special abilities the designers are calling God Powers. These powers are Perpetual’s answer to the use of magic in other MMOGs. Early in the game each player aligns with one of the major gods which in turn defines the manner of God Powers he will receive. Align with Jupiter and the powers of lightning are yours to command, while Vulcan allows you to unleash the magma of the underworld upon your foes. There are a myriad of options in this system, which will be the subject of a later journal.
