Skyforge: Another Attempt at The MMORPG
ByDate: Jan 30 2017 Views:
Skyforge is the fantasy sci-fi MMORPG where you play as a God. It's a free-to-play MMORPG that was developed by the Allods Team in collaboration with Obsidian Entertainment. It was published by My.com.
Skyforge works best as an MMORPG that offers a lot of combat variation and beautiful graphics to enhance that combat. It has a couple of pay-to-win elements that players are not very happy with, but there is still time to work that out.
But, thanks to the latest expansions, the game changed for the better.
The most important change was the introduction to the Regions Map, which improved the game's experience quite a bit. The Regions Map is a form of a campaign, and there I could go on various Adventures( which are quite fun), unlock more classes, and so on. The interface is clean and quite easy to navigate through. From what I played all of these missions and adventures were different, at least slightly, so they never really get boring. Skyforge already had explosive and colorful, action-packed combat, but thanks to Ascension now you have the ability to pick up weapons of monsters that you slay in battle, or even parts of their bodies and then wield them against other enemies, which is funny and impressive at the same time. Kiting and dodging are very slickly done, with character animations being really fluid and responsive to the time you press the buttons.
I didn't dabble much in the game's political system, known as The Council of Gods, but players seem to be very enthusiastic about choosing their leader, which in return makes the community more active and friendly towards other players.
Skyforge is shaping quite nicely as an MMORPG, and I had quite a lot of fun with it. The developers just need to keep going in this direction and avoid any paths towards a pay-to-win business model.
