Here's the developer site https://www.lionhearts.co.kr/#2   Kakao will be publishing.

    Looks good graphically, but every single aspect just looks like BDO. Could be a neat reskin of the game though depending on how the systems are all set up.

    True, but depending how the world is built could still be good for an inbetween. Apparently, some of the confirmed locations are Midgard, Jotunheim, Niflheim, and Alfheim.

    I am Scandinavian and was hoping for some accurate lore......  maybe it will be.... to a point.  I've been wanting a good Viking like game for awhile.

    The graphics are awesome, those monsters are just badass.
    I just hope they will keep the good aspects of BDO (notably the crafting/housing node system) while not keeping the bad ones (notably locked sex/class system, and cash shop driven grind).

    Give me a viking BDO without the fixed sex per class and the lame gear grind and cash shop, and I'll gladly pay a sub to play it.

    The biggest flaw is it will be minimum, 2 years before anyone sees it outside South Korea.

    Does it look good? Sure but get back to me in 2 years.

    It's a korean game, published by Cashcow.... of course its gonna be super heavy on cash shop and grind

    *mock sneeze* Asian Cash Grab! *another mock sneeze* Cultural Appropriation! That is all.
    My 5th grade grammar doesn't allow me to know what Cultural appropriation is, but "Asian Cash Grab" sounds about right.

    Yet people here will play it :)

    The Norse is skin deep in this one.  Wish they'd just done their own spin on Ice Barbarians.  But that would probably have required a lot more work than their blatant textreplace.  This doesn't look like it comes up to Disney level appropriation, and that's a pretty low bar.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    again, not supposed to be realistic. There "should" of course be games that realistic or at least coming as close as possible without becoming pedantic, but it's ok to be stylistic.

    Asian games, many asian games, seem to be about the character as super hero. They are about slick looking, beautifully dressed and rendered people who wield fantastical weapons that are beyond what normal humans would/could wield.

    I should add at :35 I felt like yelling "Trollll!"

    This is the only thing I care about. We need these games to launch in the West around the same time they launch in the East. 


    Game looks amazing. Just give me dedicated classes with roles with alot of group content and I am happy.

    I see the BDO but where is the Nordic? Nothing about the architecture, environment or characters says Norse to me.
  • sneazzy95sneazzy95 Newbie CommonPosts: 17
    I expected something a bit better for the architecture 
  • DibdabsDibdabs Member RarePosts: 2,926
    Nah.  Usual Asian crap.  Stupid combat moves with a kaleidoscope of flashy lights, characters screeching and screaming like chimps in heat, weapons the size and weight of a family car...  and that cliche Superhero Landing.  :D  Big nope.

    I figured someone would copy BDOs style and graphics. In 2020 graphics>gameplay...It didn't used to be that way.

    It is like a beautiful girl decked out in ridiculous amounts of makeup and clothes, looks sexy on the outside, but you know on the inside she is an utter nightmare.

    That is what this game looks like. It is automatically excluded for my time to even read about it due to style, origin of studio, and its available on mobile.
