In G-Star 2013, a brand new animated MMORPG called "ELFOREST" is revealed by East Interactive, the game is based on the famous Chinese novel "Journey to the West". Elforest is quite a unique new game that players have to transform into various monsters so as to put up a fight.
The card transformation system offers different transformation for different characters, for expample, Monkey King has 108 transformations, Zhubajie(literally Eight-precepts Pig) has 72 transformations and Sha Wujing (also translated as Friar Sand) has 36 transformations. In order to allow players to play as different roles and characters, cards can be collected and players can use them to transform into the characters found.
Players who transformed into these monsters will see additional story and lore content from its point of view. For the other normal monster card drops, they can be equipped to gain bonus stats and upgraded/ enhanced as well. The card system is not just all about boosting performance…
For example, if a player has equipped a “Blacksmith” card, he or she will be able to further enhance equipments, while only players with the appropriate guild cards may form a guild. Guild leaders will therefore need to forgo equipping powerful stats-boosting cards to lead a guild.
Another main feature is the option to toggle between traditional point-and-click combat and the newer non-target action combat. ElForest is scheduled to enter Closed Beta only at the end of next year.
