Saga opens up for play as the latest fantasy MMO.
Saga is the brainchild of Dallan Christensen, a lead programmer on Starcraft, and is a fantasy MMO/RTS title. It is set in a traditional fantasy world setting and lets one move characters through quest threads which lead to “new features as Saga grows.”
Saga, which has been in beta since July 2007, is managed by Silverlode Interactive outside Salt Lake City, Utah. It costs around $20 with no reported additional costs thereafter. Players are given a “persistent account with up to five nations (characters).”
Features available at launch include over 1000 quests, auction houses, guilds, raiding, collaborative party questing and more.
