Fractured Online Now Available on Steam Early Access
Steam users can now gain early access to gamigo’s next great MMORPG along with the new Wildfolk race!
Hamburg, September 15, 2022 – gamigo and Dynamight Studios are announcing the Steam Early Access launch for the first truly dynamic, isometric open-world MMORPG, Fractured Online. Today’s launch not only makes the game available on a popular PC game distribution platform, but it also introduces the new Wildfolk race along with their planet Arboreus.
The Wildfolk – which favor the new cooperative playstyle – show a strong attachment to nature, living in harmony and fighting anything that threatens the balance of their lands. This bond with nature grants them a natural affinity towards druid magic, drawing power directly from the planet, and are capable of morphing into their animal counterpart at will. The Wildfolk are also unique in that they have sub-races that include the tiger-like Chadra, the wolf-kin Udoadra, the bear-kin Nheedra, and the hart-kin Erwydra. Each sub-race has its own strengths and weaknesses, such as the Chadra being capable warriors that lean more towards fighting, while the Erwydra are more inclined to practice magic as they are extremely intelligent and have an excellent memory. Today, the Chadra and Erwydra sub-classes are available while the Udoadra and Nheedra will be included in a future update.
Arboreus is a planet with lush, vibrant vegetation and raw, primal energy – making it the perfect place for The Wildfolk to call home. In fact, out of the three planets, Arboreus retained most of Elysium’s characteristics – which is the original planet where Humans, Wildfolk, and Demons lived together – and is the only planet still capable of naturally producing magical crystals. Wood is also in abundance on this planet, allowing Wildfolk to use it for building villages while reserving stone blocks for its main structures.
In addition to the inclusion of a new planet and race, the Steam Early Access launch marks another major milestone: Seasons. Members of a guild will be able to fulfill certain in-game actions to receive Season Points for their group. Each point brings a guild one step closer to the top of the leaderboards. The guild standing at the top will earn unique prizes that offer a number of bonuses, including City Relics capable of generating special buffs.
“Today’s launch on Steam Early Access is especially exciting for us as we continue to integrate Fractured Online onto other PC distribution platforms,” says Jacopo Gallelli, Co-Founder and CEO at Dynamight Studios. “The wider the availability, the more players that can take part in our ambitious MMORPG, and the more feedback we can consider for future improvements. Speaking of which, we are very hard at work to get Fractured Online ready for full launch by improving the new player experience and expanding end-game content.”
Players taking their first steps into Fractured Online are encouraged to check out the game’s Beginner’s Guide which features tips and tricks that should help them make the most of their early experiences. Dynamight Co-Founder and CEO Jacopo Gallelli will also be hosting a stream on September 23 at 5pm CEST / 8am PDT / 11am EDT at twitch.tv/gamigogames where he will be showcasing the Wildfolk and answering questions the community may have about the game.
