From the creators of Allods Online comes another MMORPG which sucks you into an immersive world and shows what today’s technology can do. It will take a while until the game comes out, but, according to the developers, the wait will be worthwhile.
Skyforge is an upcoming roleplaying game that not only features mystical creatures in a fantasy setting, but also adds futuristic technologies to the mix. The game studios responsible for this free-to-play title are Allods Team and Obsidian Entertainment. Although both developers have not gone into great detail about Skyforge's game mechanics, they are planning to release the MMORPG in 2014. Judging from the first gameplay trailer, everything looks pretty polished and clean already, making us all the more excited for the final product.
According to the official website, Skyforge will offer 15 different classes. While that is all the information we have so far, we are happy to see more than just the the four archetypes - Warrior, Priest, Scout and Sorcerer. The online game features vast landscapes, one more varied than the next. If you are interested in speedy means of travel, you might want to invest in a mount. How about a flying unicorn made of metal? Sounds intriguing, if you ask us. Speaking of winged creatures - dragons will also make an appearance in this free-to-play title. There is no word on whether the fiery beasts are here to help you or wipe you off the face of the earth. Should the latter be the case, you will have to group up with other players to get rid of the monsters that are threatening to kill everyone you know and love. Harmony needs to be restored and various factions are seeking to be reunited. Will you be the one to help them out?
No matter which class you end up with, every character has access to unique talents that either debuff your enemies’ attributes, weaken their morale or heal your allies. Depending on the situation, you will have to switch out special abilities and always protect others from harm. If you find yourself battling it out against several mobs at once, try using talents that cause area-of-effect damage. That will show them not to mess with you! Other than that, you should always keep an eye on your vitality. Whenever your hit points reach a low point, drink a potion or seek shelter in one of the many cities, villages and camps that Skyforge has to offer.
