Shroud of the Avatar Offers Longer Free Trial Beginning May 10th to 31st
For the third month in a row, Shroud of the Avatar is offering a free trial. The sandbox MMORPG by Richard Garriott is now offering a longer free trial. Beginning May 10th, new players can create accounts and jump in to test the game until May 31st.
This is in fact, the longest free trial ever put forward by developers Portalarium. There is also a good reason to do so, considering the game has had some massive new updates included. Over the past few months, SOTA has been working hard to improve key areas of the game. The first is to make the new player experience better.
SOTA’s solution to making it a better experience for new players is to include new starter zone maps. This can be experienced when you jump into the free trial this May. Do note however, that all free trial players will be handed a Visitor tag. Visitors will have a bunch of restrictions placed on them, but still gets enough freedom to check out the game. The restriction includes PVP and selling gear, but at least you’ll be able to experience the gameplay and story.
In the past, we have covered SOTA and found the MMO severely wanting. Can the game step it up and deliver on promises made in development? Time will tell. For more on the game, check out the official website here.
