Player versus Player (PvP): Yes
Player base: Med
Type: Sandbox MMO
Developed using the Unreal Engine 3, Mortal Online is a first-person, pay to play sandbox MMO that launches players into an open world experience filled with unique activities and challenging mechanics. Mortal Online launched back in June of 2010 and has since enjoyed a number of content updates, most recently with the release of the highly anticipated expansion, Awakening. The game steps away from the regular MMO formula of rinse and repeat quests and provides players with a unique take on open world exploration and game play.
Mortal Online Review
Mortal Online offers a highly extensive and customizable character creation system where players can choose from huge selection of 10 different races. During character creation players can also choose their lineage, selecting various races to fill different spots on the family tree. These change many aspects of the created character, from appearance to basic stats and progression speeds. There’s also the standard MMO options of changing hair style, color and various body features.
One of the most appealing aspects to Mortal Online is the open world approach to the MMO genre. Once players have created their character they can explore the wonderful world of Nave any way they see fit, without the common level and quest restrictions of your regular MMO game. This also transfers over to provide players with an extremely intense free-for-all PvP system with very limited safe zones and next to no rules of engagement. Practically any player you come across can be attacked and killed, creating an adrenaline fueled experience during every single activity, even if you’re just heading out to chop down some trees or harvest some plants.
Another of the defining features of Mortal Online is the skill system. Similar to The Elder Scrolls games, there are tons of skills that are divided into primary and secondary skills. Skills don’t level automatically like the majority of other MMO games, instead the sandbox game approach kicks in and players must use each individual skill in order to improve.
