Jagex Games Studio, the UK's largest independent games developer and publisher, today launched a two week celebration for Chinese New Year in War of Legends, their popular free-to-play MMORTS game. To mark the celebrations Jagex has released a special New Year themed update including new content, numerous free gifts and a host of player events.
To celebrate the year of the Rabbit and seeking inspiration from Chinese tradition, Jagex is giving away red envelopes to every player, every day for the next two weeks. These unique envelopes will include a variety of items worth up to $20 per day, meaning that over the course of two weeks players could receive up to a massive $280 worth of items!
As well as receiving free items directly from Jagex each day, players can also invade the Wildlands throughout the next two weeks to obtain more hidden riches.
There will also be a number of themed daily tasks to complete. These tasks will only be available during the two week New Year period and will offer plays a wide variety of rewards designed to help both new and existing players start the New Year with a boost.
"Chinese New Year is a huge event for War of Legends and we're really looking forward to celebrating it in-game with our players," said Mark Gregson, War of Legends Community Manager. "The event follows closely after our 1st anniversary celebrations, so it is a great opportunity to once again celebrate with our community, give away lots of great items and play host to some fantastic battles between friends. We've also got a few surprises kept up our sleeves which I hope our community will love (hint) so if you don't want to miss out make sure you jump in game!"
