Frogster explain that the free-to-play MMORPG doesn’t fully meet expectations.
In somewhat unsurprising news Frogster has announced that the free-to-play MMORPG ELIGIUM will cease operations on 17/07/2012 at 5:07pm CEST.
The fantasy experience had been in open beta since February.
“Despite our prolonged efforts to support the community, listen and respond to feedback and criticisms, and ultimately do our utmost to offer players the virtual universe of their dreams, we have come to the conclusion that ELIGIUM does not fully meet the high expectations of Frogster as a publisher. Therefore, we have decided to discontinue the operation of the game with a heavy heart,” read a post of the game’s official forums.
To reward existing players for their commitment, Frogster have closed the in-game store and will offer all characters a regular spirit and experience point boost until server closure.
In an interesting move all players who purchased any items via the in-game shop will receive a refund, in the form of GamePay coupons.
Even though it’s sad when any MMORPG gets shut down, we’re glad that Frogster are doing their part to ensure that fans of ELIGIUM don’t feel too shortchanged.
