On November 2, 1999, Microsoft and Turbine launched Asheron’s Call, a massively multiplayer online fantasy role-playing game that stood toe-to-toe with the likes of EverQuest and Ultima Online. On January 31, Asheron’s Call and its sequel are coming to an end.
After an eternity in beta, Turbine’s DC Comics-based MOBA has officially launched, complete with its own Steam page and everything. How about a celebratory stream?
Even if you’ve never played it, you’ve probably heard of Asheron’s Call. A pioneering MMORPG, it’s been around for over 15 years now. And while it will still be around for a few more to come, AC’s developers have announced that they’re ceasing work on the game.
