My.com was at gamescom presenting news about their title. The Allods Team together with Obsidian were showing the features of their new MMORPG free to play Skyforge. In Skyforge we will begin our adventures as an immortal who must defend his planet from the invasions of terrible enemies. As we advance in the game the final goal will be become a god.
In the video we see how we will begin our adventures in the «Divine Observatory» which will be our headquarters or place of departure, where we will assemble our group or decide on which missions we want to venture. We prefer to do PvP, some solo adventure, cooperative adventuressome event or invasion what is happening at that moment or explore any of the different open world zones. At all times we can decide quickly what we want to do and see the rewards that we can unlock when doing that adventure.
Once in the zone the missions will work in a similar way to GW2. When we enter an open world area they will give us the tasks that we can complete in that area and the rewards we will receive. We don’t need to go back and forth to deliver quests.
Another feature of the game is that we can unlock new classes and switch between classes at any time, as long as we are out of combat. At the beginning of the game we will choose between one of the 3 unlocked classes and as we progress we will be able to unlock new classes. The game will launch with just over 10 classes and new ones will be added over time.
To encourage cooperation between high-level players with low-level players we can summon our friends in the form of god To help us, the form of God will be very powerful and will need a resource, “faith”, to use it. In the middle of the video we can see the guest using his god form. The gods, among other advantages, will also be able to change classes during combat. Soon they will explain more in detail how this game mechanics will work.
Without further ado, I leave you with the interview with the Skyforge team that you can see below. If you prefer, you can also watch the interview at Twitch.tv at higher quality.
