Forsaken World is a popular 3D MMORPG based in a fantasy world developed by the same studio behind Perfect World. The game focuses on providing an accessible experience to casual players while still offering end game depth for the hardcore community.
Forsaken World isn’t shy on packing in unique features to help set it apart from most standard MMORPG experiences either. This feature list includes powerful floating fortresses for guilds to fight for, epic map wide skills, the ability for players to become Gods of their server and an interesting vampire race.
On top of the vampire race (Kindred) there are 4 other available races which can be paired with over 10 occupations and 8 classes so there is plenty of mix and match options available.
Classes provide a good mixture of standard archetypes along with some fun hybrids that are a nice change from other game offerings. Each race also starts out in their own area and comes complete with their own backstory to better immerse you in the entire experience.
Forsaken World does a good job of hiding the grind with plenty of story driven quests to keep players occupied. Quests are definitely the way to level up in Forsaken World and there are more than enough that you’ll never have to resort to old fashioned grinding. This combines well with a very impressive achievement system with hundreds of medals, trophies, titles and rewards to unlock.
As far as free MMO role playing games are concerned Forsaken World is definitely part of the top few and the developer has proven it can handle the demands and necessary updates needed to keep a large MMO alive with the success of Perfect World.
