[Beta register] Publisher Zodiac Interactive and Chinese developer Jolly Roger Game Studio announced today that they will be showcasing their first project, RAN: Lost Islands, over at annual games convention EGX 2019 in London. Southeast Asia players should take note that this is not related to RAN Online. RAN: Lost Islands is an online medieval battle royale that thrusts 100 players into combat and survival scheduled to launch on PC later this year. Attendees of EGX 2019 will be the first group to experience this brutal feudal battle royale.
In RAN: Lost Islands, mastery of quick action and strategy rules the day as an arsenal of period weapons from different factions, and an exhilarating mix of traditional combat controls and combo techniques add high replay value and depth. This land, air and sea based battle royale brings melee combat to the forefront with an arsenal of up close and personal weaponry combined with massive cannons, ranged weaponry and terrifying underwater combat. A PlayStation 4 version of RAN: Lost Islands is now in development.
The Survival Rules of the Pirates
You are the treasure hunter outcast, craving a secret fortune and the legendary artifacts beneath the islands. Great courage and wisdom will be needed to eliminate all enemies – by fair means or foul – and triumphantly return home from the swashbuckling adventure.
Switching between Multiple Classes
9 classes from the three factions – The European Empire, Ming Dynasty and Japanese Shogunate. You may switch between classes using different combat styles to gain fortune and glory.
Melee Vs. Firearms
Venture back to the Age of Discovery, into the battle maelstrom of melee firearms. Sail the high seas, bombarding the enemy with your cannons. Or ambush and hack-n-slash to overrun a mighty vessel. The game even features the terrifying excitement of underwater combat.
A Thrilling Treasure Hunting Adventure
Whether you’re discovering high-level equipment or searching for treasure and artifacts, you will need to collect multiple clues at landmarks hidden on the islands such as temples, natural caves, and the walled city, amongst many others. Some ancient holy items are buried in relics or under shipwrecks. You will face not only other players but also powerful enemies such as wild scavengers in the woods, or even humongous sea monsters!
The Power of the Supernatural Artifacts
The legacy of the ancient gods will significantly empower you to defeat rival players.
It’s the Game of Hunters and Their Prey
You will become a trackable target the moment you gather the most treasure. How will you survive this cruel game of slaughter? Are you destined to be the one to escape the islands with a priceless fortune?
