JC Entertainment Brings Priest To North America


Priest, JC Entertainment's fusion of a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) and a horror-action PC title, is coming to North America.

Departing from the medieval fantasy and science fiction themes seen in most MMORPGs, Priest immerses players in a twisted Lovecraftian vision of the American Wild West. Cast out centuries ago with 12 of his brethren for rising up against God, the fallen archangel Temozarela has discovered that control of 12 sacred sites will allow him to perform a ritual that will give him the power to storm the gates of Heaven. But Ivan Isaacs, a disgraced priest, is raising a secret army of warrior-mystics from the far corners of the world to battle the dark forces in an apocalyptic final crusade.

"He raised man up above all his other creations and what do they do? They betray his teachings, desecrate his lands and doubt his existence. And still he showers infinite love and mercy on them. After millennia of devote servitude we questioned him once, just once, and he banished us. We shall bring war to paradise and cast him into the Pit as he did to us my brothers." - Temozarela

Players must chose whether to sell their souls for demonic power and stand with the hell-spawned Heretics or join the righteous Templers and cleanse the world of evil with blood and fire. The Heretics and Templers are divided between eight different character types, each with their own distinctive fighting techniques, upgrade trees and skills such as spiritual attacks and exorcisms.

Combat isn't a matter of targeting an opponent and selecting attacks from a menu. Players directly control character movement and aiming, like in most action titles, as they gun down and eviscerate the competition. Experience from slain foes allows characters to develop more powerful skills and access deadlier weapons in this persistent online universe.

Players can slaughter the innocent or execute the damned in single player, player vs. player and team faction vs. faction combat across a massive world of more than 48 different environments. Faction vs. faction warfare revolves around possession of the 12 sacred sites that bestow special bonuses on the faction that controls them.

The English version of Priest is due in the second half of 2003.

Minimum system requirements for Priest are a Pentium III 600 MHz or AMD Athlon equivalent with 128 MB RAM running a GeForce2 MX video card.

The first public North American demonstration of the game will be at this year's E3 in Los Angeles, May 14-16.
