In the world of computer games, fantasy projects have long taken a leading position. In particular, it is considered network projects. Therefore, every year the number of virtual worlds filled with orcs, elves and dwarves. However, the most important thing is the constant growth in the number of people who want to play such games. And this is despite the striking similarity of many projects among themselves. The leaders in this genre are such well-known companies as Blizzard and NCSoft, who managed to create more than one successful project. We have repeatedly written about them on the MMOTOP.ORG website. Therefore, every release of a game in the fantasy genre is associated with certain risks. However, the studio Aventure SA decided to take on this risky business and released the game Darkfall Online.

Game features

The project turned out to be somewhat atypical for the fantasy genre, so many fans immediately started talking about the fact that it is at a new level of development. The main feature of the project is a completely new unique combat system. It does not have autotargeting and automated attack classic for MMO games. This significantly complicates the task for the players, but at the same time makes the gameplay more vivid and exciting. Another important feature is the first-person view system, which will surely delight all FPS fans.

In addition, the game has a fairly realistic friendly fire phenomenon, which consists in the ability to hit friendly characters. However, the creators of the project decided not to stop there. If you accidentally cast a healing spell on an enemy, you can heal them. All this makes team battles much more interesting and believable.

Role system

The role-playing system in Darkfall Online differs significantly from many other games in the genre, as there are no usual restrictions caused by the class system. The development of heroes in Darkfall Online is based on various skills, the progress of which is affected by the frequency and success of their application. It all looks quite logical and understandable - the more you fight using a certain skill, the better it develops.

Weapon development

If you are an admirer of any particular type of weapon, then it must be used as often as possible. Only in this way will you be able to achieve the maximum level of pumping skills. Such a system is also used for pumping magical classes. It is worth noting that the game has ten large-scale magical schools. At the same time, the total number of spells here has already passed over 150. In addition to combat magic spells, Darkfall Online has a certain analogue of parkour magic, with which players can conquer impregnable peaks and mountains.

PvP Mode

However, all of the above can be considered trifles compared to what the PvP mode offers. In this game, you will not find any safe zones in which you can hide from the attacks of other users. Therefore, in the game you can be killed or robbed anywhere. At the same time, killing completely deprives you of the earned loot. Thanks to this, the project can be considered one of the most hardcore in the MMO genre.

PvE Mode

It is impossible not to note a very well-thought-out PvE system. Here, computer opponents act very cleverly and thoughtfully, quickly changing the type of weapons depending on the specific situation. If the health of a computer enemy falls below a certain level, then they run away from you or call for help. Therefore, there is no causality in this project.

Game process

Darkfall Online doesn't welcome newcomers with open arms. Here the gamer will need to show all their ingenuity and use their experience. True, at the same time, the player is offered a beautiful and diverse game world with a developed system of crafting and households. In this game there are exciting sea battles in which you can use 10 types of various units. At the same time, any ship can be boarded or sunk. Those users who do not want to spend their free time on character development can use the offline skill leveling system.


This project is really very diverse and interesting, so it is not possible to list all its features in one description.
