Description

Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings is the sequel to the Asheron's Call.

In this game, the people of Dereth emerge from underground shelters to find their world in ruin. Player actions will reflect upon the game world and in time, the player and fellow adventurers might rebuild the destroyed world.

The game uses a new graphics engine, with new combat system and an updated interface. There are three races to choose from and dozens of branches on the skill trees for the player to create a truly unique character.

Similar to Asheron's Call, monthly updates will add new monsters, dungeons, quests, skills, classes, and more without charging the player additional fees.
