Asheron's Return

Turbine and Microsoft announce sequel to "Asheron's Call" - rabbits prepare protest

After much speculation, Turbine and publisher Microsoft today confirmed that they are working on a sequel to the massively multiplayer role-playing game "Asheron's Call". Indeed, according to the short press release Turbine have actually been hard at work on the sequel "since the original Asheron's Call shipped over a year ago". So far all we have to show for it is this one piece of pre-rendered concept art, but no doubt more details will begin to slip out later in the year as the game starts to take shape. Expect more pointy-eared monsters, more detailed landscapes, more earth-shattering special events, and of course more hapless bunny rabbits.
