This may come as a slight shock to the more casual MMO gamers out there, but Allods Online, the free-to-play triple-A MMORPG from Gala Networks Europe, has not yet officially launched. But it won’t be long now…
The game may have been around for ages and has seen three major updates already, but it is still in open beta. However, that will all soon be remedied as the official launch will take place in conjunction with the next massive update, Volume 4. We touched upon Volume 4 in our Allods Revisited article, but here is what the official press release has to say -
Volume 4 and the official release will bring a huge amount of content for existing players and newcomers to Allods Online. High-level players from level 42 upwards can look forward to two brand new zones; “Kirah” and the “Isle of Relevation”, which will both provide players with many quests with new and amazing rewards. Astral space conquerors will be getting new layers in the deep Astral Space to explore and fight in. The final bonus for experienced players is that the level cap will be raised to 47 and that the Phylacteries of Passage item will remain available for free in the Boutique.
For newcomers to the game, beginners’ packages, filled with many useful free items from the Boutique, will be automatically offered to every character that completes the starter zone. As they progress, additional packages will be unlocked every few levels until the character reaches level 30. Players will be able to enjoy over 2,000 quests at launch, with much more still to come.
There is no firm release date as of yet, but expect the update at some point this Spring for the European servers. In preparation, head over to en.allods.gpotato.eu/Download/Client.aspx to download the client and register an account.
