FRIENDS THAT PLAY TOGETHER, STAY TOGETHER!

LUCENT HEART LAUNCHES NEW FACEBOOK ZODIAC MATCHMAKER APP– NOW FINDING YOUR PERFECT TEAM MATE IS EASY!

Facebook users beware! Soon you’ll be asked to fight, perform magic and undertake a fantastical journey!

Today Lucent Heart, the zodiac inspired free to play MMO from leading publisher Gamania, has launched its new ‘Zodiac Matchmaker’ app on Facebook and encourages you to utilise the power of the zodiac to find your perfect team mate for the challenges which await you in Acadia, the realm of Lucent Heart.

When you access the app, it will present a selection of your friends, each of whom will have one of the 12 zodiac signs. By simply choosing a friend, the app will present a‘zodiac compatibility’ chart indicating if that particular friend would be a suitible companion for love or fighting in Lucent Heart.

Friends you think may be great partners for fighting alongside might actually be better for dancing with, whilst some friends who you think wouldn’t be much use with a sword, could end up being the perfect team mate, you’ll just have to use the Zodiac Matchmaker to find out! Try it out now by following this link: http://apps.facebook.com/zodiacmatchmaker!

Lucent Heart prides itself on offering players a greater‘social’ experience in-game. Along with the new Facebook app, there is a‘Cupid’ matchmaking feature which allows you to expand your circle of friends to help develop a core-team. It is this encouragement of playing with friends and making new ones which makes playing Lucent Heart a immersive and unique gameplay experience.

To test how good your new team-mates will be, Lucent Heart will be opening its servers from the 9 th - 19 th June for their Closed Beta Test! Daily competitions and challenges will be held rewarding players with free and exclusive items including Stardust points to spend at the in-game shop, mounts, pets and much more to assist themselves and their teams in their adventures within the vast world of Acadia. You and your friends can even claim a special“Friendship Welcome Pack” promotional code through sharing your Facebook app match results. Head in game to claim items such as a Wild Wolf battle pet to fight alongside you, a fearsome Warg wolf mount to get about in style, and exclusive Red Hair Dye and more, all of which will make you and your friends stand out from the pack during the closed beta test.

Niall Callaghan, Product manager for Gamania UK said,“The social interaction is one element which makes Lucent Heart stand apart from other MMO’s and the Zodiac Matchmaker app will help to bring a greater dimension to this. Many Facebook users have hundreds of friends, some of whom they rarely speak with. With this app, you’ll be matched with friends you may not have even considered before and when they join you in-game, you may find out a little more about them and become closer, all of which is great for playing Lucent Heart! When players find the right partners, sharing the gameplay experience is always better.”

Lucent Heart will be launching it’s own website soon providing updates and exclusives as the Summer launch approaches, but in the meantime‘social adventurers’ should join the Lucent Heart Facebook page www.facebook.com/lucentheartuk, and keep in touch with via Twitter http://www.twitter.com/LucentHeartUK.

The Closed Beta Test commences on Friday 9 th June and concludes on Sunday 19 th June. Promo codes for a variety of cool mounts and other exclusive gifts will be available from Lucent Heart partner sites, details of which will be announced soon.?
