Ubi Soft today announced that , its massively-multiplayer online (MMO) game for both PC and Macintosh, has shipped to retailers in North America: "Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights of possibility by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge. It combines immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development. Shadowbane is also the first MMO to offer a Dynamic World Model, in which players' actions and decisions permanently change the history, politics and landscape of the game." A limited edition of Shadowbane CDs ($40) are available with a code to unlock three restricted races in the final version of Shadowbane.
