England, London. - December 3, 2019 - Publisher Zodiac Interactive and developer Jolly Roger Game Studio (Tiger Knight: Empire War) is pleased to announce has chosen Frazer Nash Communications & PR. As its principal public relations agency based in the UK. Frazer will be working on upcoming medieval battle royale game, RAN: Lost Islands.

“I’m always looking for titles that stand out and excite me.  I saw this game at EGX in London; the stand was adorned with the ancient China warrior class in full Mingguang armour. Straightaway, I decided I wanted to work on this title”. Said Frazer Nash, CEO of Frazer Nash Communications & PR. “I love the idea of battle royale, except this time it’s close up and personal with the cut and thrust of hand weapons along with plenty of old school fire-arms to get your teeth into such as muskets, pistols, cannons, and more strange gunpowder weapons such as the blunderbuss. All in all, this is a really exciting game”.

"As we were at EGX in London seeking our marketing partners in UK, Frazer impressed us with his knowledge and understanding of the online PC games in Europe. His years of experience arranging the PR work for successful titles such as World of Tanks and Conqueror's Blade will assist us building reputations in the Western countries."

RAN: Lost Islands is an online multiplayer that thrusts 100 players against one another during the thrilling Age of Discovery. As outcasts battling to survive on the high seas, they seek magnificent ancient treasure and legendary artefacts beneath the cursed islands. Great courage and wisdom will be needed to eliminate all enemies - by fair means or foul - and triumphantly return home from the swashbuckling adventure.

RAN: Lost Islands bring together three medieval warring superpower together – players can select either - The European Empire, Ming Dynasty, and Japanese Shogunate - featuring nine distinct classes that provide a wealth of gameplay options. Switch between classes using different combat styles to gain fortune and glory.

Sail the high seas, bombarding the enemy with your cannons, or ambush and overrun a mighty vessel with visceral melée combat - in RAN: Lost Islands even the terrifying excitement of underwater combat becomes part of the action. With an arsenal of period weapons from different factions, and an exhilarating mix of traditional ACT combat controls and combo techniques, your mastery of skills and strategy shall ultimately prevail.

Whether discovering high-level equipment or searching for treasure and artefacts, players will need to collect multiple clues at landmarks hidden on the islands such as temples, natural caves, and the walled city, among many others. Some ancient holy items are buried in relics or under shipwrecks.

But beware, because you must face not only other players but also powerful enemies such as the survivors of exotic hunts, wild scavengers in the woods, and even humongous sea monsters!

RAN: Lost Islands is coming to Steam Early Access in 2020, and is available to wishlist now. A PlayStation 4 version is currently in development.
