ARGO Online’s battlefields will be crowded this weekend as the Shining Desert, a vast and sandy expanse which lies at the heart of ARGO Online, will play host to the steampunk-fantasy MMORPG’s first official “Great Field War” this Saturday, July 16, at 9 pm PST.
Field Wars are a new update. During these daily events, players from both the Floresslah and Noblian factions will battle for control of the rare and valuable mineral Earthdium. Players from each faction must coordinate their assault to try to destroy the enemy faction’s mine. The winners will then enjoy access to the bountiful Earthdium deposits at the core of the desert as the spoils of war, while the losers wait in shame for an opportunity to try again.
For this special Great Field War event, players will not only be able to participate in the brutal battle for access to the best Earthdium mining in the game, they’ll also be entered for a chance to win a unique item that cannot be found anywhere else in ARGO Online. Winners will be selected randomly from the participating players, so be ready for a serious fight this weekend if you want a shot at the prize!
ARGO Online has been named one of the Top 5 MMORPGs of 2011 by MMO Worlds.
