This game comes from the minds of Ex-Ubisoft Devs. It’s an Action Online RPG with Fighting game elements. From what I’ve gathered in the trailer, the combat is going to involve a lot of timing. Feints will be thrown, followed by some punishing combinations. Similar to a lot of the fighting games we today. The game’s camera angle is different from your traditional fighter, which I think is great because it gives it a more close up hand to hand combat feeling.
In the trailer not only do we see hand to hand combat, but we also see the materialization of weapons and magic. That raises the question of whether or not the combos will be intertwined with the melee combat. In between all the action, I noticed that the characters had similar Kung Fu/ Wastelander style regarding clothing. I also noticed that the melee weapons varied from swords, and knives to staffs.
I think this level of detail will allow players to develop their identities in-game. The more face you cave in, the more people know to watch out for the guy with the straw hat and staff. The world’s art style also looks amazing. I’m not sure if this will be more of an Action MMO, where players will be able to traverse a map and run into confrontation or if will be like more of traditional fighter where players load into a stage. I would love option number one, but we’ll have to wait for more information.
Something that’s needed for any online game in today’s gaming is the ability to play with your friends. By the looks of it, the game will include team combat, where you and your squad can face off against another. How will this play out? I have no clue. I can only imagine that players will start off fighting one on one, but once they’ve gotten rid of their opponent, they would help their friend. Then that would to a two versus one fight which sparks the question, will there be mechanics that allow a player to handle fighting two people like we would see in a Kung Fu movie? So many questions to be answered, but for now enjoy this trailer!
