PLANO, Texas, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- KingsIsle Entertainment announces the release of its highly-anticipated expansion world, Celestia, to the Wizard101 Test Realm. The Test Realm, which provides players the opportunity to preview new game content, is open to current Wizard101 Subscribers and to all Wizards who have purchased Crowns within the last 30 days.
"We've spent the better part of a year designing, programming, building and testing this extraordinary new adventure," said J. Todd Coleman, Vice President and Creative Director of Wizard101. "Celestia is a kingdom of underwater cities, lost artifacts and ancient riddles. It also holds the secret of Astral magic: a library of spells based on the Sun, the Moon and the Stars."
Upon attaining level 48 and defeating Malistiare, Wizards will automatically gain access to the Celestian depths. Celestia represents the first chapter in a new epic storyline that will encompass many new worlds and reveal the deepest secrets of the Spiral. The new underwater world is the most ambitious content expansion to Wizard101 since the game launched in September, 2008.
With the introduction of Celestia, Wizards will:
- Progress to level 60 and face new foes of immense strength and cunning
- Discover long-forgotten treasures and explore the farthest corners of the Wizard101 universe
- Encounter ancient schools of Astral magic and master new spells of awesome power
- Journey under the sea and unravel the triumphs and tragedies of a lost civilization
In Wizard101, kids and families enter the magical world of Wizard City as student Wizards setting out to hone their skills, cast spells and summon powerful creatures to fight evil forces. The characters and worlds of Wizard101 are influenced by literature, history and pop culture, giving the game a depth and quality appreciated by families and players of all ages.
Wizard101 can be downloaded at www.Wizard101.com. Players seeking access to premium areas and items may purchase pre-paid cards in participating stores or purchase a subscription or Crowns online. New worlds, activities, pets and Wizard clothing are periodically added to the game, creating an ever-changing world with new things to see and do.
