This may be the best mmorpg game to come out this year. It will supposedly have one of the largest maps of any online game. There will be a full loot of characters when you kill them. You can also besiege any castle at any time. It won’t be a leveling / grinding system that is often boring in other games.
DarkFall will build on skills, you pick up a weapon and start fighting others. There will still be guilds and guild wars that most players enjoy. The game is somewhere between high and low fantasy, as there are orcs, dark elves, dwarves, and humans. So there are still classes and attributes to have distinguishable characters, which is always positive. All classes except one have racial mounts, which are mounts assigned to the race of your choice. So for the dark elves, you would get a Shulgan Drake, also known as a little dragon.
Some players are looking at this game and worried that the graphics are not good enough. I say that the graphics are not as important as the game. Just look ยูฟ่าเบท at how Age of Conan has struggled because of this. Searching and polishing your level gets boring after a while.
Interestingly, this game has a new monster system. Where the monsters are not in a timed spawn. They keep showing up if left unchecked and clump into larger and larger groups. They will fight other player cities, as well as other monster groups, depending on their default behavior.
Sieges are very different from other mmos. First of all, there will be around 87 player city locations. Second, there will be cavernous cities and castles on the mountainside. Another interesting factor is that all trebuchets, ballistas, catapults, are all created by players. Actually, all armor and weapons are also made by the players. You can’t just kill a monster and take a sword or armor. There are also diplomatic states between clans. You can be at ‘War’ with other clans, and if you are at war for a long time, you get a state of ‘war fatigue’ where you cannot declare war for a while. This will lead to clans not being constantly at war with each other. So that a clan cannot form a monopoly over the cities and dominate the whole world. Cities will be more spread out.
There will also be a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ lineup based on your actions with your characters. Some NPCs will stop trading with you and some NPC guards will attack you on sight if you choose to be evil. This game seems to be very open and hopefully it will lead to great gameplay.
