A Tale in the Desert 5 Officially Launches

[singlepic id=944 w=580 h=442 float=center]

With the election of Sami to hold the title and prestige of Pharaoh, A Tale in the Desert 5 went live on servers this past weekend. As for Sami’s promise, new player-invented technologies will be pursued in place of player-designed tests. New technologies include foraging, which allows for the collection of herbs, and aquaculture, which aids in crop genetics. A favorite among crafting junkies is the fishing profession. ATitD 5’s fishing system is likely the most sophisticated and addicting process of it’s kind. A new mining system has also been included, along with many other exciting and ingenious inventions.

For those who are interested, a free 24-hr (cumulative time spent in-game) trial is available for A Tale in the Desert 5’s official launch. Head over the official site to download and install clients for PC, Mac, or Linux.


  1. A word of warning to those who live outside of the USA:

    This game’s policies, events and schedules are all USA-centric, meaning that if you live outside of those American timezones you will be receiving much less support and game events than those who do live in those timezones. What this boils down to is that you will end up a long way behind those people in those timezones, you will have access to less things and generally have a lot of frustration.

    So if you live in the American timezone, this is a great game and it is extremely enjoyable. However, if you live outside of that timezone, I would strongly urge you to not pay the subscription for this game as you will simply find yourself growing more and more frustrated by the 1990’s style, American-centric gameplay.
