Wizard101 B day, My B day & new celestia news!

Scoop by, Cody scoopwriter.


PLANO, TEXAS (September 2, 2010) – Since its launch in September 2008, KingsIsle

Entertainment’s flagship game Wizard101 has become one of the most popular online destinations for family entertainment. Over the last two years Wizard101 has received critical acclaim as one of the best massively-multiplayer games on the market. Millions of players have discovered the mysteries of the Spiral, explored hundreds of hours of epic storyline, and joined to create a vibrant player community.

“When we launched Wizard101 two years ago, the team knew we had something very special on our hands,” said Elie Akilian, chairman and CEO of KingsIsle Entertainment. “However, we believe that the success we’ve seen, while extraordinary, is just the beginning. The number of talented professionals working to bring great new content and capabilities to Wizard101 continues to grow. For everyone who loves and plays this game, it will just keep getting better.”

In early Fall, the next chapter in the Wizard101 story will begin with the introduction of the world of Celestia, the game’s largest and most ambitious expansion to date. In Celestia, Wizards will achieve new heights of power as they progress to level 60, discover extraordinary new spells, venture beneath the ocean and learn the deepest secrets of long-forgotten magic. To promote the launch of the new world, later this month KingsIsle will launch a quest featuring one of the hottest teen icons on the planet. The quest, which will introduce players to new underwater environments and preview features of the upcoming Celestia expansion, will be available to all players in the game.

“Wizard101 raced past the 10-million player mark in June and continues to grow every day,” said J. Todd Coleman, vice president and creative director of Wizard101. “This is an amazing time for KingsIsle, as Wizard101 seems to have hit a tipping point. With the upcoming launch of Celestia, the future looks incredibly exciting.” 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.

I hope the new quest refrences astral magic, as it is available to all players.  Its probablly a teaser to celestia, Not quite as much info as the real pre quests is my guess.

The quest will probably show us the new ways we will be able to interact with water. Hopefully the vendors will start selling snorkels!

I wonder if every wizard can use all of the new magic. Or if they can only use one school. Fire and Life could use Sun Magic. Ice and Myth could get Star magic. Then Death, Balance, and Storm could have Moon Magic.

Also Happy Birthday Kingsisle, you too Cody SkyRider

Hi Valerian! My birthday was September 2nd. Not only the day W101 was released but also the date the Internet was introduced to the world (although in 1969). Happy birthday, and many happy returns! Christina IceDreamer aka IcyWiz
