Spacetime Studios’ Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles
Begins Exclusive Beta On V CAST Apps from Verizon Wireless
AUSTIN, Texas – July 6, 2011 – Spacetime Studios has launched a beta program for its mobile sci-fi MMO Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles, exclusively in V CAST Apps – Verizon Wireless’ mobile application storefront that delivers thousands of apps, games and more to Verizon Wireless customers. The exclusive V CAST two week beta period is planned for Wednesday, July 6 through July 20 and is available on many Verizon Wireless Android powered devices.
As part of Spacetime Studios’ ongoing partnership with Sony Ericsson, the game has been optimized for Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY. Star Legends players on Xperia™ PLAY devices can expect native device control support that delivers an exclusive and unique play experience.
“Spacetime Studios’ highly popular MMO titles are a great addition to V CAST Apps,” Tom Villa, director of business development and strategic partnerships for Verizon Wireless, said. “Our customers want games that take mobile gaming to a whole new level and titles like Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles do just that!”
Set in a distant galaxy during the far-flung 41st century, this initial story arc of Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles pits space-faring, privateer humans against their own treachery and the alien menace known as the Vular. Players take on the role of a space-age hero and can select from three classes, each with its own particular strengths: Commando, Engineer and Operative. In their quest for adventure, fame and fortune; players must battle harsh, alien environments, monstrous, unthinking aliens, and the greed and ambition of their rivals.
Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles is the second title in the popular Legends franchise. The first game, Pocket Legends, is the world’s largest mobile MMO with more than four million downloads.
“We are pleased to bring the beta for our latest addition of the Legends franchise to Verizon Wireless customers,” Gary Gattis, CEO, Spacetime Studios, said. “Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles will surprise mobile gamers. We built on what we learned from Pocket Legends and what our fans told us to create an even deeper and more immersive mobile MMO experience, specifically built for today’s pick-up-and-play lifestyle.”
Star Legends is free to download and play. The game features optional microtransactions and virtual currency that can enhance the play experience with vanity items and costumes. The game will be available for many Android devices including DROID Charge by Samsung, Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY, Samsung Fascinate™ and LG Revolution. Download charges vary and airtime or megabyte charges may apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications.
V CAST Apps enables customers to discover, purchase, and use apps with a simple one-click process and offers the ease and convenience of direct billing – apps purchased are invoiced on customers’ monthly bills.
