On December 20, 2007, Bayer&Szell OEG, publishers and developers of Pardus, unveiled the long-anticipated "Aperture." This event, which has increased the overall size of the Pardus universe by nearly 30%, includes the introduction of four new clusters containing nearly 100 new sectors, additional starting areas for new players and countless opportunities for alliances and players of all skill levels.
The Aperture also included the implementation of 12 new NPCs, ranging from virtually harmless to challenging for even the most advanced players.
Pardus is a graphic-based Massive Multiplayer Online Browser Game set in a futuristic universe where traders, pirates and other pilots of various races and factions strive to gain wealth and fame in space. A simple internet browser suffices for playing - no plug-ins or downloads needed.
The game's action point system ensures that players with limited time online are just as competitive as players that have unlimited time online. Further game features include player-created alliances, free territory delimitations and private starbases, a tutorial to help you get started and a friendly, mature player community.
Pardus is free; however, optional low-fee Premium Accounts provide some extra features and in turn help Bayer&Szell OEG finance maintenance and further developments.
