Crowfall - Throne War MMO

4 posts in this topic

Anyone plays Crowfall?

 

It's an upcoming strategy MMO currently being developed by J Todd Coleman (Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101) and Gordon Walton (Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, SW:TOR). It has over 360,000 registered users and $37M in funding.

 

"Claim virtual territory on behalf of your guild or faction. Capture mines, mills, and quarries to secure resources, build castles, and besiege your neighbors."

"Player-versus-Player combat on a massive scale! Lay siege to castles and ambush enemies in open-world Throne War combat!"

"Refine stone, iron, and timber at quarries, mines, and mills -- and use caravans to move them within and between worlds."

 

Beta is expected to begin this year, with Alpha that has just started. Anyone who registers on the website can try the game for free during beta.

 

Here's a video showing the world (in-game some post-processing effects have been disabled):

This game is dated. There is potential but clearly is not developed by a big team. Character customization does not work.

They are indeed a small studio and it takes time to develop patches to improve the game. I'm not sure what doesn't work with character customization? They have fixed a lot of things lately so maybe it's been fixed.

Closed Beta has started during last summer, with many large fights bursting around the worlds.

Many improvements in the recent patches : improved character advancement (Shadowbane-inspired classes, domains, new disciplines), caravans, mounts, refineries, GvG maps, new player tutorials, etc.

Buyer beware : The game still features gruesome elements : sacrifices to the gods, grave digging, necromancy...

Here's a video showing some PvP:
