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.
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.
