My beta was activated about 2 days ago for this game, and the graphics when maxxed out look amazing for a codemaster title.

I chose acretia as my first race, which is a race of mechanized creatures, bent on ruling the world, and crushing those who oppose them, it seemed to suit me so i gave it a whirl.

First thing you notice in the game, is the really in depth tutorial system, they teach you everything, from movement, to camera, to inventory, finally ending with combat simulation.

The game starts you out in a outpost, apparently the main rule of this game is PVP because you level extremly fast, i was 9 in under i think 3 hours, you get your class skill at 30, not sure what that is, but i know The Cora can summon a guardian, the Ballatio can use giant mechs, and the Acretia can use a big arse gun.

I will be glad to snap any screen shots should you want them, the game has been out in japan for a while now, so it isn't under NDA to my knowledge.


Quick shot i took while the loader was going, btw the loader has a pretty nice song, hits the soul heh.

The giant mech in the middle is the Ballatio, the one to the right is a Acretia, and the one to the left is the Cora, right above her is a summoned guardian, the Acretia is really decked out tho i must say, don't think iv seen that equipment on a player yet haha.

I've watched some trailers for it, the graphics and everything are awesome, but in the shots of the gameplay i've seen it's very drudging and non-responsive. And when I say non-responsive I mean it really doesnt look like you hit the guy. It looks like you just swing and they magically lose health. Mix that with the slow battle system I viewed, just doesn't work.

Well the fighting isn't anything like what u said, the enemys respond to how you hit them, a normal hit doesn't do much, but if you use a skill they respond to each and every hit.

Criticals are my personal favorite, i have never seen a MMO where a critical shot knocks a enemy off guard, and falls back, it is great.

Well i saw a good oppurtunity to take a shot, but a guy ran infront before i took it, came out nice tho.


Here i am in all my lvl 4 glory in full training gear hah, that capeslot makes me wonder if i can have one, i hope i can =).

The question that I must know: Is there a monthly fee? Please say no, I have been waiting for this game for a long long time. And by long long time I mean like.... a month.

Too bad I most likely won't be able to run it on my craptastic laptop.

It's a MMORPG. Safe to assume there will be a monthly fee.

Okie dokie then 2 new pics for ya, the second one explained the game to me, my class is a miner and i see the kind of obstacles no matter the size -_- that have to be overcome.


What is it about this guy that seems to remind me of gundam?


Speaking how i was before, this fella right here, is the guardian of the mine, and silly me i am a specialist, i craft things, and to get the ore i have to kill this guy, the silly angle is because the camera spins when u die, he didn't even move and i died.

When i looked around a bit i saw about 7 dead bellatio i guess they failed to kill him to.

I love mecha's like those!

T'is a shame I can't afford a monthly fee...

=/ me hopes it will be like guild wars, without a monthly fee, but that's probably only a nice dream.

I heared that the ingame models look great but that the enviroment textures are really bland. The game is lacking a good PvE system, and that the PvP only gets good when you reach level 30 (which is very boring with a crappy PvE system). So it might look good, but I don't really think I would get it.

That model lacks a torso... which makes it look awkward... but I like the atmosphere this could have.

You don't have experience with the PvE? Then how did you level up? Isn't it said you can't PvP until a higher level?
Confusing me :S

I tried to sign up for RF Online, didn't work sadly D: .

But anyway, g0jack : he means that the PvE system is bad, not that there isn't PvE. You were right when you said you were hypo o_O.

The reason the Acretia have no torso is think of the human skeleton, now minus the muscle organs etc, there u have it a ribcage, spinal cord linking the legs etc.

Anycase it is a customized look =P.

Cora and Ballatio have torso's lol.

2 new pics for you guys before i change my race over, reason why i am changing my race, is i want to find what i want to be in retail.


The Launcher a Acretia exclusive weapon, this is the lowest form of it.


This is the mining area, i didn't know it existed till i searched around a little bit.
