Mark Laursen, CEO and Founder of So Couch Studios had this to say,

Jens is an Esports godfather and a gaming pioneer with paramount insight into the competitive nature of games, and his knowledge and experience will end up greatly benefiting players of Ember Sword.”

Ember Sword is a F2P browser-based MMORPG where you can create a character, or sword to prove your worth in the action-packed classless combat system by defeating monsters, bosses, and other players, or explore the world as a peaceful forager of goods and rares making a name for yourself as a talented refiner and craftsman of weapons and armor.

“Ember Sword captures that magic blend of PvP-focussed RPG combat and a true persistent open world served in a format that is easily accessible across multiple platforms. A hard design and technology-challenge that I firmly believe the team is able to deliver on. Excited to contribute my esports experience!”

Ember Sword is expected to launch in late 2021.
