Well, Folks, It’s Time To Go Nuts! Celestia Is Coming!

Everyone, please, go crazy.

Go crazy now. It’s what we’ve all been waiting for…

It’s Celestia. And it’s coming.

That is all. Just kidding, messing around.

Wouldn’t it be funny if I just ended the post there and didn’t give you guys any real meat at all? To be quite honest, it did occur to me, but that would be mean considering everyone is just dying to hear good ol’ Dustin’s opinions/the NEWS on the latest and greatest (ahem, first opinion!) Wizard 101 Expansion. Before I start talking, I think this picture is worthy…

That is a picture from a book I’m reading called the Cult of Mac. I’m a total Mac/Apple nut, so please don’t pick on me about reading a book entirely written for Macoholics like me, got it? Good. Anyway, what you see in that shot above is the infamous Apple “Black Curtain”. Other Mac crazies out there might know about the Macworld Expo, where Apple unveils it’s latest and AWESOMEST gadgets that I then am just DYING to have. Anyway, as they prepare the cool new stuff for showing, they have a top-notch security system called a room covered in a giant black curtain. Isn’t that just great? I love Apple just for stuff like that; it’s so genius! And THAT is the perfect lead-a-way into…


Upcoming Wizard101 Expansions Include Seventh World and New Pet Capabilities
New world, advanced pet system and level cap increase included in two Wizard101 content updates

PLANO, TEXAS (March 24, 2010) – KingsIsle Entertainment, creators of the award-winning massively multiplayer online game (MMO) Wizard101 is proud to announce details on two of the major content updates for 2010. An extensive Advanced Pet system is launching this spring and the world of Celestia is launching late summer. In addition to all new quests the Celestia expansion will also include an increased level cap and new secondary schools of magic.

Coming this spring, players will have the opportunity to hatch customized pets from millions of potential combinations. The Advanced Pet system will bring a new dimension of interaction within Wizard101 as players can race their pets in the expansive Pet Derby, participate in new pet-themed minigames, feed and train them, and use them as allies in magic duels. Players will be able to level their pets from an egg to ancient beings with incredible powers.

The new world of Celestia is inspired by Atlantis, and young Wizards will encounter new adventures and quests deep under the sea. Celestia also increases the level cap in Wizard101 from level 50 up to level 60, as well as introducing three new secondary schools of magic. Celestia will officially open in late summer. Starting in June players can undertake new quests to discover the secrets of this new world and begin to unlock the story behind Celestia.

“2010 is shaping up to be an incredible year for the students of Ravenwood School of Magic,” said J. Todd Coleman, Vice President and Creative Director for KingsIsle Entertainment. “Whether exploring the underwater kingdom of Celestia, or hatching and training pets to participate in the Pet Derby, every player–from the newest apprentice to the returning grandmaster–will find something compelling, engaging and fun.”

In Wizard101, kids and families enter the magical world of Wizard City as student Wizards setting out to hone their Wizard skills, cast spells and summon powerful creatures to fight evil forces. The characters and worlds of Wizard101 are influenced by literature, history and pop culture, giving the game a depth and quality appreciated by families and players of all ages.


(Incase any of you wanna read/look that over some more, click here for the Ravenwood News talking all about it.)

Okay, that’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO awesome. Great. Woot! Excellent. Moving on…

I’m not really gonna break those paragraphs down or anything like Friendly did, because I think I couldn’t do them justice, but I WILL show you guys the pictures that came with that on the Ravenwood News and explain some stuff there.

So the first picture on the news is THIS-

Okay, WOW. That is the coolest stuff I’ve ever seen in my whole freaking life. Look closely at that…

Tada! Astral Schools, not a single doubt about it. WOOT WOOT. I can’t wait. Just please, KingsIsle, don’t let those Astronomers (like, Diviner for the Astral Schools) have more damage than Storm. PLEASE. Oh, and I think that crystal stick thing-it is a Celestia wand. Man, this is so cool! I’m FREAKING OUT, PEOPLE!

So the other picture there is of the new pet features-

So, it’s like a morphing pets thing or what? And this new Pet Derby? Sickly good.

Todd J. Coleman and all your employees (shout out to Jeff Toney, yo), I applaud you.
