About the Game

Forge™ is an online, class based multiplayer shooter set in a unique fantasy setting. A malicious being named The Devourer has swallowed the great pantheon of gods. Seeking escape, the trapped gods have deceived great warriors, zealous adherents and placed them on a faceless world called FORGE, designed sacrifice the weakest of these warriors in order to grow their own power. Choosing one of five unique warrior classes, the player must battle head-to-head with other players in a bid to free their god from the clutches of The Devourer. Armed with a set of powerful and unique abilities as well as a powerful and deadly ally, each warrior must overcome the varied challenges of Forge where every kill is a sacrifice and every sacrifice brings them one step closer to freedom.

Key Features:

Class based gameplay. At launch, choose from the Assassin, the Pathfinder, the Pyromancer, the Shaman or the Warden. Each with their own unique role to fill.

No grind! Unlike other titles with RPG style abilities, Forge offers a level playing field for all players regardless of their time spent playing. You’re as powerful when you start playing Forge as you will be years from now.

Customize your characters. Though Forge does not offer any power increases as you level, you will unlock new abilities and armor as you play.

Ever expanding. While Forge has the accessibility and low time requirements of a first person shooter, we will constantly work on adding new content to the game, including but not limited to: Factions, maps, gameplay modes and even ever expanding features that continue to add on to the persistent elements of Forge.

Forge Preview Reactions

IGN - "Rocket-jumping wizards? I can't pledge on Kickstarter fast enough...What's admirable here is that Forge isn't expecting to own a massive audience out of the gate - it's trying to earn a community with good ol' fashioned great game design."

GamesRadar - "FORGE looks like it'll be a great romp for gamers looking to test their skills without investing hours into acquiring gear before they can compete."

MMORPG.com - "Face-Punchingly Good PVP... I can tell you that while Forge may be difficult to describe to the uninitiated, its gameplay will be instantly comfortable to aficionados of the MMO and FPS/TPS genres."

DIGITAL NOOB - "This week I was able to check out FORGE firsthand, and it is definitely one of the top games I’m anticipating the release of. It takes the best things of MMOs (the PvP), Shooters (in your face action) and MOBAs (the even playing field) and mashes them together in a great way....I admit that I was skeptical at first, but after meeting with the guys and spending some time testing out the game, I’m a believer."

MASSIVELY -"...there's a lot to love about Forge, and I think that anyone who gives the game a fighting chance will find something about it to keep him around... I think Forge definitely deserves our attention."

Penny-Arcade - "It’s every bit Team Fortress 2 as it is World of Warcraft, but somehow it all feels tight and solid in design. Classes feel balanced, game play is smooth and familiar, and the overall visual aesthetic is rich in detail and life."

TotalBiscuit - "Having played this, I can safely say that it's an enjoyable and solid competitive PvP experience without the MMO grind."

Looks good, but I'm not up for MMO's. Upvote for friendlyness.

Proff: While we in no way claim anything fantasy to be original for many decades (centuries really, millenia perhaps?), 'new fantasy themed intellectual property' doesn't roll off the tongue very kindly. We chose unique intentionally over 'original'.

"unique" and "fantasy", when used in the same sentence, make me want to punch through people's heads.

Except TF2 is free to play and this one seems to be B2P (Buy To Play).

That may be so. But then I look at your avatar... :P
Ta ta!
(and I said I agreed that the video wasn't the best one to show off the game's potential)
