Tibia publishes first trailer ever while prepping Steam launch

Well, all right.

Free-to-play, top-down, 2-D MMO Tibia is closing in on two decades of operation, and it’s just released its very first trailer. The game pubbed a patch in December and was greenlit on Steam last year, but in September CipSoft told fans the game just wasn’t ready yet to relaunch on the platform because of the requirements of the new client:

We are still aiming to release Tibia on Steam and we will continue to work towards this goal. However, a Steam release is closely linked to the development of a new Tibia client – a time-intensive, long term project on which we have been working for quite some time already. At the moment, we are still in a development stage where we cannot provide concrete, reliable information about this project. This also means that we cannot provide an ETA concerning a Tibia release on Steam yet or an estimation as to when we will be able to share more details with you.

Check out the trailer and images below!

Tibia was actually released before ultima so to say this is a rip off of that is completely inaccurate. If anything it would be the other way around. I’ve played tibia for years if you can’t figure out the controls you must ride the short bus to work. No doubt the game has gone downhill in the past years but it’s still a fun addicting game that is community based and very much alive. They are constantly adding quests and new areas. In the years I have played I have not come close to exploring all of tibia it’s impossible. The map is massive!! I’m rambling now bb o/ gg.

The perspective gives me a headache somehow. Why is it leaning left as top down instead of … right??

Armsbend Deathage Feydakin The community is definitely still alive, yes. Albeit I wouldn’t be surprised if at least 50% were bot & multiclient accounts. This is a huge reason why its about a 1/3 as popular as it was

Woah. Getting a huge Ultima 6/7 flashback here. Perspective is almost exactly the same.

breetoplay Archebius I’m sure there are other games that used the perspective at the time, but it looks to me like the exact perspective of Ultima 6 and 7. Games were still young enough where they could come up with whole new camera perspectives!

agemyth Yeah, these guys truly truly suck at marketing themselves & always have. They’ve been stumbling through a steam launch for years now.

Feydakin Its about 1/3 as popular as it was (~20-25k concurrent log-ins at peak hours). It has definitely fallen from what it was

pid There is an option you can check in settings to automatically “use” the object you right-click on, bypassing the context menu unless you shift-click it. Also, theres only 4 classes, each with a clear role. If you had a hard time there, I suggest you never try EQ/EQII
