The critically acclaimed Action/RPG of 2004, Champions of Norrath, returns! Champions: Return to Arms, published by Sony Online Entertainment and developed by Snowblind Studios, will build on the progressive features of the first edition, with more single-player adventures, a deeper online and multiplayer experience, two new playable races, beautifully detailed environments, a whole new storyline, secret gameplay modes, new monsters, weapons and items and much more.
The Champions of Norrath have destroyed the god Innoruuk, shattering his body into shards of hate. Innoruuk's followers and allies have taken it upon themselves to gather these shards in order to resurrect their fallen prince. Hate has infected all that was good, leaving no one to trust. Firiona Vie, who has remained pure at heart, has called upon the champions to take up the crusade against evil to rid Norrath of this threat once and for all. The game is designed to offer more than 100 hours of gameplay per character, unlimited battles, deadly missions and the ability to import characters from the original game.
