Skyforge is a free-to-play third-person action massively multiplayer online roleplaying game developed by the Mail.ru Group’s Allods Team in collaboration with Obsidian Entertainment. In the universe of Skyforge immortal gods and heroes with the help of technologies of the future fight with mythical creatures and reflect the invasions from outer space.
In Skyforge, player's takes on a larger than life role as an immortal with incredible powers, battling to protect their world from the armies of hostile gods and eventually becoming a god themselves. Character progression within the game is not level based. Instead of a traditional leveling format, Skyforge features a “prestige” system, which allows a player to advance based on the sum total of their stats and progression. This system allows Skyforge players to develop and switch between multiple classes at any time, rather than being locked into an early game class choice like common MMOs. As a player gains more prestige, additional content, gear, and followers are unlocked. Once god mode is achieved Skyforge includes an additional progression system which allows users to manage their followers to increase their character's overall power.
In combat, players can use normal attacks (sword slashes, ice projectiles, etc.), heavy attacks (slamming the sword into the ground, ice bolts, etc.), dodges, "finisher"-type moves (electrocuting an enemy, freezing an enemy, overhead sword slams, etc.), and abilities (Temporary shields, decoys, powerful attacks, different attack techniques etc.).
There are a lot of adventures and locations the player can visit across the planet of Aelion. The capital of Aelion serves as a hub world, with three locations: the Divine Observatory, where the player can travel on adventures/visit locations through a hologram globe, the Research Center, where the player can train, try out new classes, and change the appearance of their character, and the Park, which players can walk around and occasionally hosts events, such as the 2015 pumpkin lighting and gift opening events. Through the Divine Observatory, the player can travel to different locations around Aelion. The Divine Observatory also allows the player to play in PVP battles. There are different locations, such as Dankit Island, Lander Forest, Isola Digs, and more.
Skyforge is set in a world where fantasy and science fiction are mixed. Ancient mysteries and powerful immortals, along with old-fashioned weaponry are used alongside cutting-edge technologies and weapons.
