“Legends of Aethereus” Now Available For Pre-Order On Green Man Gaming
Peter Donnell / 7 years ago
ThreeGates and Green Man Gaming announced today that Legends of Aethereus is now available for pre-order, exclusively via Green Man Gaming.
“Months ago we met the team from Green Man Gaming and we quickly realized that it is the perfect lead platform to bring Legends of Aethereus to core PC gamers,” said Don Geyer, CEO of ThreeGates. “The game will be live in a couple weeks, but for now the pre-order is in effect and gamers can pick it up before we go to the full $29.99 launch price.”
“ThreeGates built a fun and exciting role-playing game that we believe is a great fit for our passionate PC gaming audience,” said Darren Cairns, EVP Marketing at Green Man Gaming. “Exclusives like Legends of Aethereus demonstrate our continued commitment to independent game developers that are in search of frictionless digital distribution for their titles.”
The planet of Aethereus is an ancient and mysterious world filled with majestic forests, misty swamps, deep caves and ancient ruins. Devastated by three large astronomical events, the Three Great Skyfalls, it is a world just coming out of chaos and ruin. The recent unearthing of The Gauldron Tablets has revealed the existence of The Seven Ancient Skyfall Relics. The promise of unlimited power for those who possess the objects has led to a frenzied search across all of Aethereus. As a member of the Nexus City-State, one of the last bastions of freedom and hope on Aethereus, you will be entrusted with the critical undertaking of procuring The Ancient Skyfall Relics. Standing in your way are the Serpentica Shamans of Ghalia and the hordes of Khagal Tribes they control as well as the oppressive Venatan Empire forces led by the notorious General Zhorgal.
