The war of the Gods and Giants centuries ago, the forces of Ymir the Giant King and those of Odin and Frigg clashed in a near world ending battle, and whilst the Giant King was ultimately defeated it was not without a greater cost. As his blood spilled and flowed it manifested into a dark essence, the Shadow Soul looking to spread, infest and corrupt all that it touched as it was guided by malign forces to destroy the very source of all Creation: The World Tree. Now to battle back these forces and put an end to the corruption champions have been chosen, those who are able to purify these lost souls, the Soulkeepers, the heroes of the gods themselves.
At its core the primary features of Echo of Soul emphasise a traditional MMORPG focusing on players exploring a huge environment, tackling dangerous dungeons and exploring PVP to acquire experience, increase in level and attain powerful items and gear to make themselves even stronger.
