‘Brutal’ MMO Valorbound explains that it’s really about friendship and flexible play sessions. The game is currently in development, but has already received critical acclaim for its robust mixture of PvP, PvE, crafting elements and the ability to play with friends or solo.
We introduced you to Valorbound, a new MMO project that aimed to stand out from the crowd by being a “brutal” and “hardcore” game with a lot of PvP fights and health management, back in June. If that piqued your interest and you want to learn more, go over to Reddit, where the team’s lead has released the entire design concept for the game.
Valorbound is said to have started as a Minecraft hack and evolved into a bigger MMO project built in Unity. The game’s emphasis, according to the developers, is on returning to the genre’s roots: “Vertical growth creates a lot of problems.” Ones that we believe distract from what an MMORPG should be: living a fantasy world’s existence and sharing it with your friends.”
The highly instanced MMO will enable players to mix and match two classes out of a total of 27, but some will need playtime to unlock. To remove the need for alts, you may switch out class builds, cosmetics, and races on the fly.
“We’re creating it because we want to play it,” says the group. We all have different schedules, so playing MMOs together was a complete joke,” said the company leader. “I want to be at the tavern table with the rest of the group, cheering as FINALLY logs in… and when that occurs, go do stuff that is important to ALL of us.”
