– Paris-based game developer and publisher, Nevrax, and Jolt Online Gaming –
Europe’s largest independent online gaming network – are pleased to announce
players from all over the globe are now able to download the eagerly-awaited
Saga of Ryzom MMOG.
The new digital download system will
now allow players from ALL territories the ability to obtain the game online,

boost already escalating subscriptions to the recently launched MMOG, which is
also set to benefit from the newly introduced "Bring a Friend" scheme.
"With all the cold and wet weather
about, who wants to travel to the shops to get their hands on the hottest MMORPG
this year," said Dominic Silk, CEO of Jolt, "By using the online purchase and
download system, exclusive to Jolt, you can be enjoying the lush and sunny
sights of Atys in next to no time at all."
Since its highly successful launch
in September, The Saga of Ryzom has garnered positive media attention, being
called a stand out MMOG that "you’ll want to see every inch of" (Gamespy,
October 2004). The Saga of Ryzom offers players an engaging storyline, affected
by their own actions; a unique new combat and skill system; and a vast,
beautiful, dynamic game world to explore.
"This is just the beginning for
Ryzom," said David Cohen Corval, CEO of Nevrax, "We have many prosperous years
ahead and we recommend players start early to ensure they make their mark on
Atys and the future worlds to come. We’ve always believed a digital download
system to be the perfect medium for obtaining the game, and we’re glad to now be
able to offer it to everyone."
