- Your world will never be the same: "Asheron's Call 2" features
an unfolding storyline and a dynamic content system that can bring
about an ongoing stream of world-shaking events, including blizzards,
volcanoes and hordes of invading forces. As players become more powerful,
they will be able to trigger some of these directly.
- Grand Campaign - As each major chapter unfolds, players will receive
a series of quests intricately tied to the story-line, sweeping them
up into the events and story around them.
- Factions - Players will be able to align with one of three factions
and can do battle with both monsters and players of opposing groups
to capture and control precious resources.
- Rebuild the World - The world has been devastated by a great disaster.
Players will be responsible for rebuilding the world and, on both
a micro and macro level, their actions will help determine where and
how the world is restored.
- Interactive Environments - Players will be able to impact their
game-world like never before. Everything from being able to change
their immediate environment from completing a quest all the way up
to triggering global events.
- Tactical Combat: "Asheron's Call 2" features an all-new streamlined
combat system where players are gripped by real-time decisions that
influence the outcome of a battle. Players can excel and develop distinctive
combat styles and techniques, and be the envy of other players.
- Fantasy in a new light: "Asheron's Call 2" uses the Turbine Engine
G2, the next generation graphics engine that provides real-time 3D
shadows and lighting, and dense reactive environments. This creates
a rich, atmospheric world where dense grass and foliage sway in the
wind, and water shimmers with reflections. The engine also enables
highly detailed player characters and monsters a hundred times more
massive than the players.
- Express your inner hero - Choose between three very different character
races, including the industrious humans, the wild, magical Tumeroks
or the behemoth Lugians. Develop your combat, crafting and magical
abilities along distinct skill-trees with hundreds of skills, where
experience and diligence will open up new paths for players to explore.
- Crafting System - A brand new crafting system will give players
the chance to pursue non-combat skills. Begin as a humble crafter
of mundane items and graduate to become a master craftsman of the
most sought-after magical items.
