Wizardry Online released today
Sony Online Entertainment has just released Wizardry Online today! Deemed as the “most hardcore MMORPG ever created” Wizardry Online is based on the classic Wizardry franchise, the free-to-play MMORPG is currently available in Japan, Europe and North America. Sony describes Wizardry Online as “a fully re-imagined Wizardry game that stays true to the franchise’s trademark features: hardcore gameplay, intense difficulty, party-based combat and permadeath — where when you’re dead… you stay dead!”
Here are some of the features seen in Wizardry Online:
Lost System: Not even death is easy in Wizardry Online. Players will need to donate to revive themselves—and a poor donation runs the risk of failure. If they are unsuccessful twice, their character will vanish, said to be “Lost” and become unplayable forever. The player’s experience will be noted on the Soul (account), allowing for an easier start for the next character.
Massive Dungeons: The game’s dungeons present a variety of traps and powerful monsters for those who dare to invade their territory.
Skill Customization: Players can customize characters by combining skills from current or previous classes. With Wizardry Online’s skill heredity system, players can create a fighter who can heal or a mage to steal items from monsters.
Bounty Hunt System: In addition to monsters, other players will try to kill and rob other players for rare items. Such players are deemed Criminals and may attack anywhere and at any time. Players may offer a bounty such as gold for the death of any criminal and other players will compete to bring that character down.
Familiar Races: The game offers a variety of races known from previous Wizardry games, including humans, elves, porkuls, gnomes and dwarves. These races have different advantages towards weapons and skills.
Also, hopefully you well get to see me get my ass handed to me when I live stream it sometime later this week right here on Gamebreaker.
