RPG March 2018
Darken Age: The Awakening of the Forgotten is a free-to-play browser MMORPG set in a fantasy world and developed by Polish studio Dark Workshop. The game takes place in a fantasy world of Acheron. Dark Workshop decided not to use your typical fantasy races and created their own original species. Story focuses on the invasion of an army of demons and mutants known as the Legion. Threatened by the evil forces, intelligent races of Acheron form an Alliance and send a special expedition to the source of evil, the island of Tamrel. We take the role of one of the members of that expedition. As in every proper MMORPG, we explore, fight, and do numerous quests. Our hero gets stronger and stronger as we play, gaining access to more powerful skills and equipment. Darken Age: The Awakening of the Forgotten also has an interesting crafting system that requires the players to cooperate. The game has optional microtransactions.
Star Trek: Alien Domain (WWW)
Another browser MMO game adaptation of the cult Star Trek TV series universe. The title was based on the newest canon of the series, although it features a completely new story. The plot takes place in a mysterious region of the universe called Fluidic Space, where the members of United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire again fight for influence. The players choose one of the factions and establish colonies, gather resources, develop their fleets, and conduct research. Like a proper MMO game, Star Trek: Alien Domain features much combat between the players, including one-on-one skirmishes, raids on the enemy outposts, and great battles between the rivaling factions. In the game you may see many iconic ships from the series and movies, but you also have an option to build your own vessels.
Conquest of Champions (WWW)
Online strategy from Kihon Games, which combines elements of a turn-based battle game with a card game. Conquest of Champions is set in a typical fantasy universe. Your task is to collect cards and create your own personalized decks, and then use those to challenge other players. In each duel you strive to eliminate the opponent’s hero and destroy their altars, while protecting yourself from being treated the same way. In terms of gameplay, Conquest of Champions is based on playing cards in turns, which activate various effects, cast spells, or summon heroes. Conquest of Champions offers well over one hundred cards and heroes (grouped under three factions). Those heroes gain experience over time, which lets you continually develop their skills. The whole is complemented by an extensive system of crafting as well as the option to blend two the same cards into one in order to get its more powerful version.
Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms (WWW)
A browser MMORPG developed by Bigpoint in cooperation with the experienced Norwegian studio Artplant. The game is based on the fantasy novel A Song of Ice and Fire written by George R.R. Martin. Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms is set in the same time frame as the first volume of the books and it focuses on the conflict between the houses Lannister, Baratheon and Stark, who all want to have their own man as the king’s governor. In the game the player isn’t a member of any of these houses. Instead, he belongs to one of the lesser houses and he can decide which side of the conflict he will join. The game focuses mostly on PvP mode in which the player fights other players. The combat system is very action based – reflex and a good tactical sense are required for victory. Later in the game the player also participates in giant battles and sieges of strongholds, the conquering of which provides access to resources and tax income.
