Seven Souls Online: GDC 2012 Preview

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,596MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

During the recent Game Developer's Conference, our team had the opportunity to check out Seven Souls Online. See what they discovered about the game that our writers call "TERA and Aika having a baby and raising it in EverQuest's world of Norrath". Enjoy!

If you can imagine TERA and Aika having a baby and raising it in EverQuest's world of Norrath, you'll pretty much capture the artistic theme in Seven Souls Online (SSO).  NEOWIZ GAMES' new free-to-play MMORPG is being developed in Korea, and has an eye-catching art style, with an interesting story to match.  In SSO's setting of Arcadia, you've become a guardian of the Seven Souls of elemental power, which were originally brought to the world by the Babylonians.  In the current era, the main antagonists known as the Elysium have come to control the Souls, but you come from Elysium-whooping town and are starting to feel homesick.

    I am in the open beta, this game is awesome! I am having a blast, and reading the quest is not to bad also. I just hope the PVP is worth it, i am big into open world pvp and rvr type. But pve wise it's great. WASD works very well and so does jumping, at times clicking to move is not so great. Looks like they really focused on the WASD movements.

    Not a bad game.  English is good which is rare for a game like this.  I liked the special move animations as well.  Could do without all the dancing animals in the starting area, as they kinda get annoying.

    This game is more than what it looks and feels like at first glance. There is a crafting system in this game that is really in-depth. Think of DIablo 2's horadoric cube and then add to that abut 89376763 recipes that are UNKNOWN. There is so muc to discover in crafting and its all tied into the economy.

     

    This game is like an Action MMORPG Sandbox. You can explore, hunt whatever you want for whatever crafting material you want, you can quest, do dungeons in solomode or group, open world PvP. There is a lot going for this game.

     

    Dont be one of those people quick to judge because you are missing out. Great game!

     

    Here is a link to some crafting guides I put together! It will help you make a ton of gold and learn the system!

  • Open World PvP is trash for now. You get a 5% debuff to your stats when you ATTACK, not even kill an unflagged person, just attack. This debuff stacks 10 times, so 50% reduction to stats for pvping. Its not even ganking, even if the opponent fights back you get the debuff.

     

    You were wrong about Open Beta launching with arena. It may have been just what you were told by Neo, regardless, the games been out a week. Do a little research, aren't you a writer?

    They will fix this if you ask. Also, battlegrounds will be in release which is less than a month away.

    Is movement and combat as stiff as the trailer makes it seem? 

  • Not at all Mig, the combat and gameplay is where the game really shines.

    In my opinion, this is the closest game to gw2.

    NO HEALER WOOT'

    Holy Trinity (HEALER TANK DPS) ruined PvP

    Grind fest to death. No healer but instances and some (raid?) boss fight is not done well. Group is only 4 and for some bosses you need more than one group and few hours of grinding.

    Pots are expensive and you lose exp (you can buy it back) if you die. After few hours of fighting (raid?) boss only 1 group will get reward all others get nothing (or rather lose gold on pots/buying  back exp) for spending few hours grinding. Not to mention that some bosses re spawn every 12hr or so.

    Games are supposed to entertain us not make us work hard for everything.... So I recommend this game to masochist and hardcore grind to death loving gamers.
