    Just some more info from the Skyforge team.

    It's time to continue the journey through the world of Skyforge! Today we are revealing one of the most significant features of our game, the Divine Observatory.

    For the residents of Aelion, the Divine Observatory is a global surveillance and warning system. Its task is to monitor and display the pleas for help of Aelion's mortals and send immortals to their aid.

    For players, it is a single point of entry into all sorts of adventures!


    The Divine Observatory, as well as special Access points located throughout the whole planet, will quickly take you to where your help is needed most.

    When you first begin your journey from immortal to godhood only a few adventures will be open but more and more will become available to you as you progress. During the first hundred hours of play time, the immortal heroes of Aelion will participate in more than 40 exciting solo and group PvE-adventures. There are also five different types of PvP competitions for PvP fans and ten vast open world locations that can be explored for hours and hours.

    There are a multitude of activities open to players in the Divine Observatory, and your choice is not limited in any way. It’s up to you to decide whether you would like to develop your character for PvP or PvE and then quickly jump into the content you prefer.


    A normal adventure can be completed in an average of 15-25 minutes, while open world locations can take hours and hours to explore.

    The Divine Observatory is updated every 40 minutes. Any changes in the adventures open to you or their rewards will be immediately displayed on the globe, a miniature projection of the planet. The system updates the list of “hot spots”, allowing players to easily see and participate in all cur-rently active events.


    Open adventures and their rewards are updated every 40 minutes.

    You are free to replay specific individual and group PvE-missions you enjoy again and again, and their rewards grow as your prestige grows, so they remain useful to your development and progression. After repeating an adventure several times, the difficulty will increase, and so will the amount and value of the rewards. Of course, other types of content also remain relevant to you as you grow as well. For example, the matchmaking system always tries to find the most suitable opponents when it picks players for PvP battles.


    From the Divine Observatory you can enter the queue to participate in a group adventure and then go to one of the open world locations to continue completing simple tasks while the system is looking for a suitable group.

    There are also additional recommended events which will appear in the Divine Observatory from time-to-time (adventure of the day, week and month). These recommended events are a great way to test your characters progression or try a different class. Sometimes the reward for the recommended event is so high that even an avid PvP player may decide to participate in a PvE adventure, or a confirmed Paladin will set off for Factory 501 as a Cryomancer.


    The Divine Observatory also displays upcoming adventures that will soon become available.

    The number you see in this picture above is Prestige - the main indicator of character development. It is affected by new unlocked classes, abilities, talents, equipment upgrades and many other things. When you reach a certain amount, new adventure and content are automatically unlocked.


    Over time, there will be there will be a growing array of adventures and content available to you.

    As heroes complete PvE and PvP adventures, they receive rewards including; Credits, the most common money on Aelion. Gems of Insight, which are used to develop your characters skills and talents, unlocking new classes and characteristics, and Exotic Currencies, which can be used to buy new outfits, customizing the look of your character.

    As your prestige grows, the list of rewards expands. While at the first the characters receive only Gems of Insight, later their adventures will earn them other new and valuable resources. Over time, more and more difficult tasks will become available to you, including massive guild activities with their own rules and prizes, but that’s a topic for another day.

    Looks very promising, nice graphics and action combat, BUT.
    The Allods team created one of the worst f2p system ever in their Allods Online. It's infamous for its horrendous restrictions and power boosts sold for huge prices. Allods Online, and Mail.ru itself has a very bad reputation in Russia for being exceptionally greedy and making money on everything, including pay-2-win strategies.

    The fact that this game is "free-to-play" is a warning sign, though I hope it will be different this time.

    The Allods team wasn't responsible for the cash shop. That was gPotato. They ruined the cash shop. Time and time again. Then they made it P2W on top of everything. But thankfully gPotato won't have anything to do with this. Obsidian Entertainment will be helping the Allods Team so I am expecting a much more fair pricing model for the cash shop. Trust me, I thoroughly understand your reticence. I hated how gPotato ruined Allods for me. I was in the beta and saw when the cash shop first opened and how incense was introduced. Then they changed it to cursed items. Then they introduced runes. It was one fuck up after another.

    All that said, this game seems very promising and I am hoping they have learned their lessons and won't pair up with any of the bad f2p publishers like Nexon, Webzen, Perfect World or the like.

    Looks nice.

    This is unimportant but:
    the Ascension Atlas trailer is too funny to watch! The dramatic voice, with the majestic adventurous music in the background, talking about absolutely non-epic things like character progression systems, sounds super stupid.

    At least it was informative. Better than the fluff that 2k just put out about Battleborn. No one even has a clue WTF the game is even supposed to be. The trailer they released was cinematic bullshit.

    It's in Russian, but it's the first solid gameplay and mechanics video out there. The combat seems to be a possible hybrid of cross hair/fps action combat with tab target options. I don't speak Russian and the game isn't in beta yet, so exact details are unknown to me. That said, there is a TON of info in this video even if you can't understand the language.

    The graphics alone have stunned me.

    Indeed, the world looks really beautiful, it really suits my style. I usualy have problems with MMOs looking too anime-like. While this one suffers from this too, slightly, not nearly as much as other games.

    Looks promising!

    Wow, I looked through the last video. Now it looks even more promising. I especially liked how Cryomant launched a giant snowball which trampled the deer, who was stuck in it until the snowball smashed into a tree.

    You'd think they learn, but since they keep doing it - the best thing to do is just avoiding any gpotato game.
    sadly they are big and strong in asia, and not likely to go away soon.

    You should request "Valyrian Stormclaw" to remove his quote, it's kind of pointless to quote the whole video post again,.

    This game looks pretty awesome, I've signed up for the beta, but it didn't say how I'd know if I was invited...will I get an email or something?

    As is standard with just about every beta for every game ever, most likely.

    Hmm... I really liked Allods, but that F2P model just made me sick. As long as they can keep that kind of shit away from this game, and put out the same quality as Allods was, then I am very interested to try it.

    Bump...
    Great videos are out.
