Legends of Aria Launches on Steam This December
Enter to Win!
Description
Release date: Late 2016 (Early Access)
WHAT IS LEGENDS OF ARIA?

The former leads of Ultima Online invite you to the next chapter in living Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game worlds.

Become a creator of worlds. It’s the first MMO that legitimately allows you to host and create customised player run shards. Customize every aspect of your servers’ gameplay experience from character development, to combat, to items and equipment, to monsters and AI.

---

Legends of Aria is breaking away from the modern MMO conventions of levels, classes and quest grinds. Instead, we are returning to living virtual worlds where stories emerge naturally as players explore the worlds laid out before them. Whether you wish to build an empire, delve into the darkest dungeons or build a thriving roleplay community, Aria is a land of endless opportunities to truly live in our world.

Lawful lands and well travelled roads offer sufficient protection for those who choose a lawful existence. Those who venture into the lawless lands seeking plunder and precious materials risk the slight hand of thieves, or worse... The land of Aria offers a home be you good or evil.

We are initially targeting the PC platform, and plans for a Mac and Linux launch are in the works. When you purchase the game, you will be able to play on official or player run servers and run a single ‘shard’ with no additional cost or subscription fees. Players will be able to form massive servers by connecting their self-hosted worlds together using a ‘cluster server’ hosted by Citadel Studios. These servers, when marked public, are listed in-game for all players to see and join.

Legends of Aria is the first game that legitimately allows you to run and moderate your own game worlds with the potential to support thousands of users at one time. Ultimately, Citadel Studios isn’t just creating game that fosters a player community, instead, they are giving our players the tools to create their own in-game communities.

Early Access Feature Highlights (late 2016)

Player Housing – Claim you house plot anywhere in the world by obtaining one of the 13 housing blueprints currently available in the game. You have complete control over the items placed in and around your house including furniture, crafting tools, and lockable storage containers.

Skill Based Character Development - Your skills gain naturally as you use them. With over 20 skills already in the game and more being added each release.

Deep Storylines and Lore - The inhabitants of the worlds in Legends of Aria are full of knowledge and stories of the struggles between mortals and the many races of gods.

Crafting – Metalsmithing, Woodsmithing, Fabrication and Alchemy are functionally complete. A grand total of 144 recipes are available for crafters to use to create items!

Animal Taming – We currently have 20+ tameable creatures that not only respond to your commands but also age and gain skill the longer you keep them.

Combat – We have a completely tactical and skill based combat system with 15+ combat abilities, 20+ spells, and 10+ skill based abilities.

PvP - Outside of the guard protected areas of the world, PvP is completely unrestricted and players must stick together to protect each other from the forces of evil. The penalty for death ranges by server rules from a slap on the wrist to full loot.

Catacombs Dungeon - Catacombs is a massive 3 level dungeon that changes configurations every few hours. The dungeon is filled with traps, terrors and epic loot for players to explore and hunt.

Boss Battles – Test your mettle against one of our many nasty bosses: Forest Ogres, The Cultist King, The Spider Queen, The Greater Demon of Kho, The Greater Dragon, The Guardian of the Void, and Death.

Titles – In addition to the title you earn from your pledge level, players can also earn in-game titles. There are currently 150+ titles available including titles like “Leader of the Revolution” and “Bane of the Dragon Age”.

Faction System – There are two factions struggling for control of Celador, The Villagers and The Cultists, by completing tasks for them you can gain faction which gives you access to titles, additional tasks and access to special areas of the map.

Guilds – Players can come together to form guilds that can claim their own lands and even go to war with other guilds.

Character Customization – The first pass on character customization is complete which allows you to choose from several skin types and hair styles for both male and female. You can also change your hair color.

Community Servers and Modding – 24/7 community servers running with custom created content. (NOTE: Some aspects of modding will not be available until after Early Access release)

Loop, if you're only looking for info on steam, you'll be out of luck. There's a pretty constant discussion going on at the official Discord, also you should check out their round tables for the newest info.

Steam lunch will ever happen? I mean, when you look at this progress objectively, you see that since 2014, this game is trying to lunch itself in the steam. There are no announces regularly, neighter much people are discussing things in here... It smells like "pledge dollars for nothing". Please tell me the reverse because me and couple of friends want to hold on this game and its a big deal... But it looks like this game will never get into the Steam. Citadel studios even cares for it?
