Earlier this month, Russian developer Mail.ru
announced the new Praydenov (Praiden) race for steampunk MMO Allods Online
. Though we don't know for sure when or whether English-speaking players will get to play as these beastmen, Russians will be rolling up the furry creatures this fall. There's scant English news on the race so far, but at least according to the Mail.ru site, the race is a mixture of a wolf, lynx, bear, marten, and fox. Tipster tandarighttanon (many thanks for the translation!) tells us the Praiden are a "neutral race that you can play till level 20, then you must choose your faction."
The official site includes a gallery of additional mounts and critters
destined for the game in the same patch.
