"We are absolutely thrilled to see so many gamers showing interest in the game," says Stunlock Studios CEO Tau Petersson. "With the game increasing in popularity and with more and more gamers discovering the game, we realized we had to come up with something that immediately explained the game to all these new arrivals.
So we put together this video that explains exactly just what 'Bloodline Champions' is all about, and we hope that this will inspire even more players to join us in the beta in the time to come." 'Bloodline Champions' has been in development since 2008, when it started out as a student project put together by the original founders of Stunlock Studios.
Over time, the project grew in scope and when Funcom signed on as a publisher in 2010 the talented developers at Stunlock Studios were able to devote all their time and effort into realizing the true potential of 'Bloodline Champions'. The free-to-play game is set for release in late 2010/early 2011.

Offering fun and fast-paced action for both casual and hardcore gamer, 'Bloodline Champions' will push your skill to the absolute limit. Battle it out with thousands of players around the world and master your bloodlines in the quest to become the ultimate champion!
