Fractured. Pre-Alpha Video...The MMO of ancient...planetary...dungeons?



     With the flood of F2P MMO's transforming into something that's ACTUALLY enjoyable, Guild Wars and Black Desert being a prime example (if you take the time to figure it out, you can do SO MUCH in that game), Something that really piqued my interest was Fractured.

In game Tavern, Where many a case of Chlamydia has been caught.

     From their Website: "Fractured is the first open-world sandbox MMORPG mixing action combat with fully interactable environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative game-play. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies through your own skill and cleverness, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire." I know, that was really lazy. But since there is no Alpha to play test, we're left to speculation. AVANTE!

Build a Town! Sell some apples! Share a laugh as you throw them at peasants! You own a village, who cares!
     Fractured feature three races, all with specific game play styles. Items in game are all crafted. The system allows you to manipulate the economies of different areas to gain better profits, Farming to supply travelers with food when they go to other planets, Destroy indigenous ecosystems by mining and wood cutting for PROFITSSSSSS, Travel to beautiful Locals, meet the locals, Kill them so you can scavenge their bones and skin

Prometheus and Uriel have decided "Clothing is Optional" on their swamp vaca...
     The game really seems to have this deep player driven economic and societal system. There are no level restrictions for quests, and no attribute points. You essentially roll your strengths and weaknesses and (as I have said about Ultima Online) You simply BECOME.

     It has a lot of MOBA attributes in an MMO setting (their words, not mine). a lot of dungeon crawler mechanics are introduced into a fully open Sandbox Environment. Fully interactable environments, building hamlets into kingdoms, raids and Sieges, PvE, PVP....On paper this really sounds like an attractive endeavor.

Don't forget the red room! You can thank my wife for me knowing what the hell that is.
     Signing up and registering is totally free , but all this being said, pledges have just opened up, Starting at 25£ ($32.68) which gives you access the phase 2 Beta test, a VIP membership and some Gold coins for the store selling cosmetic perks. ALL the way up to a wohoping 5000£, allowing you to design your own Hellmark that will be seen all over the game, as well as a damn giant statue at all monster nests. Those cosmetic perks, as I mentioned, help speed up "Studying" of skills that are non-combat related. So there is no Pay to Win. Feel free to sign up, if thats your jam, right HERE!
