Skyforge is making screenshots way easier with its new screen-pausing ‘photomode’

Do you suffer from screenshot envy? Does it bother you that developers will produce screenshots that offer a perfect little slice of the action available in the game, while your screenshots inevitably turn into muddled messes of particle effects? The addition of Skyforge‘s new photomode in its next major patch doesn’t provide you with the ability to take better screenshots automatically, but it does give you more control over the image… if you’re willing to accept the risk.

Pressing the button to enter photomode (the “End” key by default) will essentially act as a display pause button. Everything on your screen will freeze, allowing you to play with angles, move the camera, move the center of the shot, and otherwise line things up to take the perfect picture. Unfortunately for you, this does not in any way prevent you from being attacked, damaged, and killed while taking your shot. If you don’t mind suffering for your photography, though, it promises to be a great addition.

Pashgan Decent? Anything but. It may look good, any prehaps the PVP is fun for those that like that sort of stuff. but the rest of the game is a endless grind through one shot mechanics and general trolling from the devs.

Every game should have a photomode. See Mad Max. Half of the fun in this game is taking screenshots of mayhem and destruction.

I liked this game mostly for its endless leveling and interesting classes, ye i know i am weird :) But what killed it for me was when they released those ultra hard zones with the trees were you supposed to get the pink nodes. After trying unsuccessfully trying to find a group and after getting a group and people leaving for whatever reason i said fuck it and i uninstalled it.
In addition after i also saw the event with the race i really felt ok with missing another pay to win game. Too bad though it seemed a nice time game.

It will be a long while until I come back to Skyforge, I’m enjoying B&S gameplay a lot more. I already spent the $50 gunner pack so I’ll hop on once in a while but still sucks the classes take a while to grind up to

As a person who obsessively chronicles their gaming life with screenshots, I think every MMO should have a feature like this!

You didn’t mention that this was 90% motivated by the legions of One Shots submitters who also happen to play Skyforge. Justin will hear about this. RIP Eliot.

I’ve used this function on Ru servers and it’s great. I believe US players who are still in the game will be happy to use it – both of players… According to PvP stats I’ve seen – US servers have 4 times less population than Ru servers (3k PvPers total vs 11k), EU servers are barely alive as well (6k players participate in PvP).
