Before we begin, could I ask your name and position?
My name is Alan Lan and I am Product Manager for Gamania Europe on Bright Shadow.
The first closed beta ended some months ago. How well did it go, and what has inspired this second closed beta?
I think you are referring to Gamepot's US version of the game, they have closed down the title back in October. We (Gamania Digital Entertainment Europe) are now launching the game in Europe, although everyone is welcome to come and play.
What new features can players expect in the second closed beta of this game?
We will have a fresh start as the game is new to European players. There will not be any new features at this closed Beta, but players can get their hands on a super rare Alpaca Mount, once they have made 10 friends and reached level 10 in CB. Also important of course is that there will be no data-wipe, so early birds can really get a head start!
The last closed beta started with the first episode of the game, but the second chapter in the story's lore. Where will the second closed beta take place story-wise?
We are now testing the first version of the game, but I can already confirm that we will have at least three content updates planned after we go commercial.
Can you tell us a little more of what we can expect lore-wise and/or story-wise with this new beta round?
Bright Shadow tells the tale of Luciena a once pieceful community that is under threat by the evil Umbra that use 'Soul Power' to transform themselves into hideous monsters. that seek ultimate domination. The Umbra's power is fed by destruction, deceit, corruption and death.
The once pieceful community of Luciena have been rediscovering the magical properties of Soul Power to defend themselves against the Umbra and their powerful God-like PenUmbra masters. The Lucians united and diversified, developing tactics, technology and magic to stop the notrocities they have had to endure for so long. The Lucians have had numerous successes against the forces of evil, but soon the Umbra retaliated with merciless force and it was clear that the war had just begun.
