This game for its old DAOC like realm vs realm and feel for the game has gotten a complete facelift and a lot more polish. Its sporting a completely new interface that isnt clunky and actually streamlined nicely. I do not hardly think many free to play games merit any praise but out of all of them Ive played over the years , this one seems to be a sincere attempt of making a quality DAOC clone game .
Graphics - while still outdated by todays standards they have been hugely improved with this past months very large game update. Water filtering of textures and lighting has gotten a makeover. Added in FXAA darker shadows and nights , and bloom etc. Add in SweetFX with AA off in the options and this game actually looks really good. Next month faces of characters are getting revamped and it looks like armor and weapons so its getting a huge facelift to modernize it.
Gameplay- is still the old tab targeting quest driven system until your high enough to realm vs realm . Combat animations are more fluid now from what Ive seen and it seems to have some more polish done to it. They added in some battlegrounds instanced pvp along side of the very large realm vs realm zone and also there is now 9 relics of power held in each of the realms keeps just like DAOC had.
There has been a new race added as well to each of the three realms. New armor sets and siege weapons. Gold used to repair doors and keeps and upgrade them etc. All in all its a good close clone to DAOC in combat and atmosphere.
The dev team seems pretty commited to the game and at least on the game samba realms online version the staff is active daily on the forums etc.
Anyways I really think this game needs a new review done since its changed so much in the last two months compared to the old game. Its really the only true 3 realm pvp game I can think of that is a direct clone of DAOC and worth a look again.
Also I was playing at 4am on the realms online server for america and the realm vs realm zones were pretty active still so that was good to see since I thought for sure the game would be dead. I was pleasently surprised to see all the care and changes done to this game and its getting some decent love now and worth a look if you want to play a realm vs realm game thats pretty old school.
