NCSOFT has released a 10-minute Throne And Liberty preview video for their MMORPG, Throne and Liberty. The video features new details and gameplay footage from the developers. In this article, we have summarized the key points from the video.
Throne & Liberty’s World And Environment
- The game’s world is the central focus and starting point for players. Its borderless design allows for seamless connection and interaction with other players. The developers used a dungeon as an example, featuring a separate entrance and main area with multiple floors and compartments that are all connected. Players can move between floors and assist or hinder others while exploring the dungeon.
- NCSoft have united the game’s world into a single zone to emphasize the central aspect of MMOs: player interaction. By starting the game together, players can create shared histories and memories as they journey through the game and experience it together. This is the developers’ vision for the game.
- The game’s weather and environment are designed to enhance the sense of realism, and players must adapt to the changing environment in order to take advantage of various opportunities. The terrain and ecosystems can change based on shifts in the environment, leading to interesting events.
- The day and night cycles and predictable events allow players to plan ahead, while unpredictable events like weather changes require quick adaptation. The environment plays a key role in adding a sense of life and variety to the game world.
Throne & Liberty Story
- In MMOs, the players themselves create the game’s history. However, it is also important to consider the game’s backstory and the connections between the past, present, and future. Players will encounter mythical figures, learn about their stories, and experience the rich heritage of the game world in order to fully immerse themselves in the game.
Throne & Liberty’s Class System
- In Throne and Liberty, players’ roles and abilities are determined by the weapon they choose. The game does not restrict players to certain classes and allows them to switch weapons depending on the situation. Players can combine the two different types of weapons and switch between them to take advantage of their strengths and mitigate any weaknesses. Each weapon type also has defensive actions that can be used in critical situations.
Throne & Liberty PvP
- The developers of Throne and Liberty have implemented rules for player versus player (PvP) combat that allow players to choose whether they want to participate in PvP battles or not.
- While most zones in the game are safe, certain areas may become open for combat during regional events or boss raids. Players can choose whether to participate in these battles or not, and can check the schedule for upcoming events and competitions to plan their gameplay and avoid unexpected PvP encounters.
- Throne and Liberty’s world is made up of diverse regions, each with its own unique backstory and corresponding competitions that all players in the region can participate in. These regional battles typically last for around 20 minutes.
- In the world of Throne and Liberty, there are special items that can only be owned by guilds: the Blessing Stone and the Dimension Stone, together these are called the Possession Stones. These stones allow guilds to expand their capabilities and acquire necessary raw materials.
- To obtain these stones, players must participate in battles and strategize by understanding the terrain, locating the Stones of Possession, and making tactical decisions such as setting up a defensive perimeter or selecting the best approach.
- The game world and characters in Throne and Liberty have been designed with a wide range of players in mind, with colorful and detailed graphics, including realistic facial expressions for NPCs. The AI Customization feature allows players to create characters based on real photos, and players can also customize their characters after they have been created.
Release Date & Platforms
