    The Skyforge team has revealed a new facet of the game called the Divine Observatory. The Divine Observatory is a 'gateway' to adventure with calls for assistance being registered within.
    In their first hundred hours of play, players will have access to more than 40 exciting solo and group PvE adventures, five different types of PvP competitions and 10 massive open world locations to explore.

    Skyforge has this thing called the Divine Observatory, which is a sort of global surveillance and warning system that monitors the pleas for help from Aelion's mortals and sends immortal player characters to their aid.

    Said players "will have access to more than 40 exciting solo and group PvE adventures, five different types of PvP competitions and 10 massive open world locations to explore," according to the latest My.com press release.

    "As players complete adventures, they will receive rewards including credits, the most common currency on Aelion, Gems of Insights, which are used to develop skills and talents, unlocking new classes and characteristics, and Exotic Currencies, which can be used to buy new outfits to customize the look of the characters," the firm says.

    Skyforge abandons leveling in favor of a prestige system

    [​IMG] (1 hour ago)
    Betas, Sci-Fi, Free-to-Play, Community Q&A, Skyforge

    [​IMG]
    The Skyforge development team has been on a streak of answering pressing community questions over on the game's Facebook page, with one question answered per day over the previous week.

    A few of the questions centered around how Skyforge has eschewed a traditional leveling format in favor of a "prestige" system. Prestige is like gearscore, a sum total of the stats from a player's equipment. As a player gains more prestige, more content, gear, and followers are unlocked. "Instances are tied to the amount of prestige your character has," the team explained. "The better your character[s are] developed, the higher their prestige is and the more adventures they can go on."

    Other questions concerned whether there will be a test server (there will be) or a global chat channel (there won't be). The team did indicate that there would be a multi-platform chat system on launch, however: "Our programmers wrote a special chat service that will allow players in the game to chat to friends that are reading messages from other devices. This means that you can chat with other players regardless of whether they are in the game or not."

    [Thanks to Dengar for the tip!]

    Skyforge : The Lanber Forest Revealed

    Posted Jul 15, 2014


    My.com and Obsidian Entertainment have revealed new information about one of the zones that players will encounter when playing Skyforge. Called the "Lanber Forest", the zone is seemingly a tranquil and peaceful place. The beauty, however, only masks the evil that lies just beneath the surface.
    Nerion, once the patron of the Lanber Lands, has betrayed his followers and formed an alliance with the Mantide army, who have been awakened after centuries of sleep and seek to spread throughout the planet, destroying the unwanted and dominating the weak. The mortals of the Lanber Lands are now condemned to suffer and die at the clutches of these evil creatures.
    Now, Nerion’s Castle, which towers over the Lanber Forest, no longer symbolizes divine protection, but reminds mortals of the traitorous god whom they once looked to for protection.

    Skyforge : Frosty Cryomancer Revealed in New Trailer

    Posted Jul 22, 2014


    My.com, the Allods team and Obsidian Entertainment have sent out a brand new trailer to show off one of Skyforge's playable classes. The Cryomancer, as the name implies, brings the power of cold to the battlefield with a wide array of skills to freeze the heart of even the most battle-tested opponent.
    The primary role of a Cryomancer is to dish out damage quickly from a distance. The Cryomancer can quickly and easily control the battlefield by freezing large groups of enemies before they can overwhelm the Cryomancer and his allies. Even if enemies can get close to the Cryomancer, they are in for a deadly surprise: The Cryomancer has enough tricks to easily get away, including making a frozen decoy copy of themselves.

    The Free Zone : Talking Skyforge and F2P With Obsidian

    Posted Jul 22, 2014


    Last summer, we learned that Obsidian Entertainment had been retained to help develop Skyforge. Since the studio is strongly associated with standalone RPGs, this news was interesting and at least somewhat unexpected. Following E3, where parts of the game were playable and appeared to be favorably received, I had the chance to follow up with Development Director of Culturalization Eric DeMilt about his team's role on the project.

    Obsidian explains Skyforge's class-swapping system

    [​IMG]
    Obsidian and My.com are back today with another new Skyforge dev diary, this one a lengthy explanation of the game's class system. Skyforge allows class-swapping that will remind players a bit of RIFT: You'll pick a base class and then unlock intermediate and advanced classes as you play, swapping your current played class along the way. Check out the team's full explanation!

    Skyforge: Classes

    Many people have made the observation that the Skyforge class system is non-traditional and unique for an MMORPG. Our decision to design our class system this way was influenced by changes we see in gamers. In recent years we've seen a change in the way people play games, specifically, with the new found popularity of MOBA games. They have fast become the most popular online games and are consistently beating records for participation in various tournaments. Continue Reading

    Skyforge : Obsidian Details the Classless System

    Posted Aug 01, 2014



    One of the more intriguing features that has been hinted about in Skyforge is the "classless system", an open progression system that allows player to unlock a multitude of classes over time. In addition, the system allows players to, for instance, fulfill missing roles in raids or dungeons on the fly as long as the party is not in combat. Players will gain access to classes and, over time, more advanced classes.
    In this case several people can wait for hours for a tank to go on an adventure. In Skyforge the risk of not finding the required class is very minimal – in all likelihood you’ll have a friend or someone already in the group who has opened and developed the required class. And even if they have not it only takes a few minutes to become a Paladin and open up the first few skills in the Progress Chart. The class switch system is designed so that even when you first switch classes from a class you’ve developed, the new class you switch to will also be as developed. This is because the main attributes are tied to the character and not the class. We have written about this in more detail in the article on the Ascension Atlas.

    VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:http://vimeo.com/103604188#t=0s
    Skyforge is a title that has caught my attention for several reasons, including its pretty graphics, its science-fiction bent, and its flexible class build system. Past that I'm a little ignorant, which is why I appreciated the following video from Gamescom.

    After Skyforge's trailer, the team delivers a crash course on the game's lore, features, and combat. One of the interesting aspects is how the game can zoom out to show you the entire world so that you can easily see where quests for your character are waiting.

    If Skyforge is on your radar, do yourself a favor and give the Gamescom panel a watch when you have a moment! Continue Reading

    Skyforge : Everything About It Is Beautiful

    Posted Aug 24, 2014


    I’d been seeing images of Skyforge for some time before Gamescom. Everything about the game is beautiful. But surprisingly few MMO gamers I know have heard of Skyforge. It’s a Science Fiction-Fantasy MMORPG from the makers of Allods Online. Combat is all geared towards action and somewhat reminiscent of console games in that there are combos to learn for various attacks. I was never good at learning combos in my old school Street Fighter days and if my demo at Gamescom taught me anything it is that nothing has changed.

    The mix of sci-fi and fantasy themes in Skyforge marches on, as the upcoming MMO announced its latest class: the Paladin. Heavy armor? Big sword? Giant shield? Divine backing? Yes on all counts.

    According to the reveal, Paladins "are the spiritual heirs of Aeli and a true weapon of good." As would be expected from this type of class, Paladins are tank characters with high health, fast regeneration, the ability to shield allies, and plenty of defensive skills. The Paladin builds up righteous anger to unleash in the form of special abilities and must pretty much always fight in melee range.

    We've got the Paladin trailer after the break, so give it a look-see and let us know what you think! Continue Reading

    Skyforge : Obsidian's PVP Plans Revealed

    Posted Sep 17, 2014 by William Murphy


    Recently, we were privy to a developer Q&A with Eric Demilt, Director of Development at Obsidian on the upcoming MMORPG Skyforge. Obsidian is developing the game in cooperation with Allods Team, and though we’ve slowly been learning about some of the many classes in the game lately, Obsidian and Allods decided that the time was right to pull back the curtain on the title’s PVP modes.

    "Fighting fair is the name of the game," say Skyforge's devs in a press release today, which is totally what the characters pictured here represent. (Sorry, that was a... low blow.)

    My.com says Skyforge will allow small-scale PvP in designated maps with varying team sizes; it will also include a matchmaking system to protect noobs and make it "almost impossible to gank someone." Large-scale PvP, known as Pantheon Wars, is another story, one the studio isn't telling just yet except to hint that it'll involve "complex PvPvE-battles where proper role assignment is crucial."

    Enjoy the new screenshots. Skyforge PvP

    A new MMOGames interview with Obsidian Executive Producer Eric DeMilt sheds light on inbound sci-fantasy MMO Skyforge, which he says is angling to provide a deep experience for players with tons of time -- as well as players with very little. As he put it,
    "We are striving to make a great high quality free to play MMO that would have action oriented combat and allow for short rewarding session time. We wanted to make something that could accommodate short session game play as allow for enjoyable longer play sessions. It's about escapism and being larger than life."​
    DeMilt also discusses power creep, player retention, character progression, the Facebook-inspired social network within the game, and monetization; on the last, he's reluctant to give details, but he vows that Skyforge is "not going to be a flat-out pay-to-win game."

    If you like random scripted events in games like RIFT, Defiance, and Guild Wars 2, you're going to love Skyforge's alien invasions. Announced today, alien invasions in the upcpming sci-fantasy MMORPG are huge events that will roll out to the open world in multiple stages and spawn waves of enemies full of loot and esclalating challenge. If ignored, invasions "will grow and defenders will be overrun by more dangerous creatures from the most distant corners of the universe." So maybe don't ignore them.
    Upon defeating invading hordes, players can rally the troops and board the enemy ships, where they will encounter bizarre alien monsters in various forms and vicious, unexpected traps. If these can be surpassed, parties must then defeat the avatar of an alien god; presenting a true challenge, staying alive on board an alien ship and defeating the enemies within will reap huge rewards and bring recognition to all victors.

    Players that deal most deftly with the alien god's avatar will be able to participate in a championship match. This is a special raid adventure with a new, stronger avatar. Here, even the slightest tactical mistake can deprive you of victory, but the winners will receive a unique reward. The outcome of this battle may have certain consequences for the entire server. After all, the gods are not just immortal heroes. Their actions have an impact on the whole world.​
    Obsidian has posted a new video showing off the invasion system; we've included it. Continue Reading

    There's a new Skyforge blog post on the game's official site. It's all about adepts, which in case you've forgotten are the loyal followers of your avatar who further your personal power and assist you on the road to godhood.

    Adepts distinguish themselves from your regular followers by way of a profession: Engineer, Templar, Sorcerer, Mystic, Preacher, Healer, Envoy, or Agent. Some adepts are better suited for particular missions (send a Healer on an epidemic curing mission, for example), and adepts who successfully complete missions will bring you gifts and additional followers for your trouble.

    Adepts also help you gain reputation within the game's provinces, so it's in your best interest to develop their power as efficiently as possible. How do you do that? Well, you can start by reading the dev diary which we've linked below.

    Skyforge's first technical beta weekend begins November 13th

    The conglomerate of companies building Skyforge -- Allods Team, Obsidian Entertainment, and My.com -- have announced that the MMORPG's first technical beta weekend will kick off on Thursday, November 13th. What's a technical beta?
    The technical beta weekend is a "technical test" in that the purpose of the beta will be to test Skyforge's core systems such as server infrastructure, client distribution system, login services and more. Therefore, we are only inviting a relatively small number of players to participate in this phase of testing to ensure that our core systems are operational, fully functional and able to withstand the stress of many players all logging into the game simultaneously.​
    The developers are also hoping to provoke feedback about core gameplay systems such as classes, quests, combat, and character progression.

    This weekend's beta winds down on November 16th, but more tests with more invitees are planned.

    Skyforge : Beta Gameplay Footage and Livestream

    Posted Nov 14, 2014



    We sit down with Development Director Eric Demilt of Obsidian Entertainment to talk and play their new MMORPG Skyforge, currently in technical closed beta and launching in 2015. The game is in technical beta, and its framerate and crashing are due to this. As Eric says, it's nowhere near optimized yet, but they wanted to show people what they were working on. Enjoy!
    Check out our exclusive Skyforge Live Stream.

    Skyforge details the Berserker's rage mechanic

    A new Allods Team/My.com dev post today reveals yet another class for upcoming sci-fantasy MMORPG Skyforge: the Berserker. Wanna rush into battle, smash enemies in the teeth with a giant chainsword, dish out massive AoE damage, and annoy opponents with AoE crowd control? Of course you do. But there's a catch: This classic RPG archetype comes with a rage mechanic.
    The Berserker's powerful attacks consume Rage. Outside of battle, they only have half their maximum level available but once engaged in a fight, damage inflicted upon or by the Berserker will cause their Rage to build and rapidly reach its limit. Only then will the Berserker be able to use their most effective abilities - inflicting massive damage on all who would oppose them​
    Skyforge concluded its first tech beta period last week. Check out the Berserker trailer after the cut. Continue Reading

    Wanna win a beta key for Skyforge, the upcoming sci-fantasy MMORPG from My.com/Allods Team? I hope you like minigames, then, because Skyforge is going to make you play a minigame to earn that video game beta key. From today to December 23rd, players can log into the game's website to play a daily round of the minigame, called Aelion's Treasure. There's more at stake than just keys, though:
    In the mini-game, players have seven attempts daily to find as many blue gems as possible on a board of 21 gems. To win a closed beta key one should collect 5 blue gems. Along the way they'll find several surprises, and a special leaderboard will keep track of players' progress. The top 20 players on the leaderboard each week will also receive an invitation to Skyforge closed beta. Additionally, the player who places in first in the leaderboard rankings each week will receive a Sound Blaster EVO ZXR Headset. Other prizes include an exclusive Skyforge Souvenir Gift Set, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 graphics card.​
    Hey, at least it's novel, right? The game's first technical beta ran earlier in November. We don't yet know exactly when the beta will begin, though given the duration of this promotion, we can hazard a guess.

    The Daily Grind: Does a studio's home country impact your faith in an MMO?

    I've been cautiously excited about the development of Skyforge, although something's really been holding me back from gushing too strongly about it: the fact that its dev team (well, one of them at least) is located in Russia. Maybe it's silly and even a bit nationalist, but I am somewhat less trusting of MMOs that hail from other regions than my own.

    Maybe it's a fear of making payments to studios in countries across the world. Maybe it's a fear that the studio won't have my own best interests in mind in operating that product. Maybe I've been let down by too many titles that were developed overseas but never made the transition to my home shores.

    Does a studio's home country or region impact your faith in an MMO? A reminder: Let's keep the discussion free of nation-bashing, please!

    Guess what, story fans? Skyforge has lore!

    Today's dev post explains the myth behind the Celestial Fortress, an epic construction project floating in the sky meant to safeguard the planet Aelion from its own inward-spiraling moon. "While historians still argue about its true origin and meaning," intones the narrator, "only one historical fact remains clear: the Celestial Fortress which the symbol represents prevented the destruction of Aelion." Well, that and the Roche limit, but this is sci-fantasy lore, not astronomy. Carry on, storytellers!

    We've included the new concept art of the Celestial Fortress below. Don't forget that Skyforge's browser minigame competition to win a beta key and other prizes is still ongoing for the next several weeks. Continue Reading
