New Download on the Horizon

Product: Horizons: Empire of Istaria

Artifact Entertainment, the developers of the MMORPG Horizons: Empire of Istaria, has announced a new download system that allows new and returning subscribers to download the game with increased efficiency. Artifact Entertainment?s CEO and Creative Director, David Bowman, said, ?As a company we are very committed to making our product accessible by anyone at any time. This new system allows those who have made a choice to play Horizons: Empire of Istaria, an easy, effective way to receive the basic game onto their machines at no cost to them.?

Artifact Entertainment?s Director of Technology, Rick Simmons, said, ?There are some very well defined benefits to our user base with this new system. Our new system supports a larger number of concurrent connections at higher speeds. We?re using XCRC to ensure that all downloaded files are valid. Another feature we?ve added is much more effective bandwidth management so all users get the best download rate possible.?

David Bowman continued, ?Maintaining our own download service allows our new subscribers the best, most efficient on-line method of retrieving Horizons: Empire of Istaria. It follows that the more access points we can provide to Horizons then the more individuals will become part of the Istarian family.?

Horizons: Empire of Istaria launched in December 2003 and currently boasts an avid following of tens-of-thousands of players worldwide. The ability to dynamically add content coupled with a first-rate crafting system has allowed Horizons? fans to experience episodic content and the ultimate in massive battles. Players are also able to take on ten fantasy roles ranging from dragon and elf to fiend and half-giant while meeting friends that circle the globe.
