Way back in February, Mortal Online developer Star Vault announced it was following up that first MMORPG and its 2018 battle royale spinoff with another sequel: Mortal Online 2. At the time, the studio not only vowed that it wouldn’t be abandoning the first game but promised it would be bringing along existing players and their lifetime subs such that some of the players’ “wealth and success” would carry into the new title. Yes, that’s right Overwatch and Path of Exile; Mortal Online did it first!
Anyhow, today the studio announced the game officially.
“Mortal Online 2 is the long awaited sequel to Star Vault’s long running first person sandbox MMORPG. In Mortal Online 2 you get to explore a massive sandbox world with full PvP and full loot. This makes every fight an adrenaline fueled encounter not for the faint of heart. Mortal Online 2 has no classes or levels; instead it features an open ended skill system where the player gains points in skills simply by using them. The game also moves away from Mortal Online 1’s 4 character slots and now has a one character per account maximum. This change comes with a upgraded skill-system that aims to make every character more versatile moving away from Mortal Online 1’s very specific character roles. Mortal Online 2 also expands on Mortal Online’s beloved open crafting systems that gives players full control over what they create. Players crafting weapons for example do this by choosing the blade or head of the weapon,a handle type and what materials these two parts are made out of. This creates an almost infinite amount of weapons, armors, bows and arrows for the players to craft. Mortal Online 2 is set in Myrland a massive 400sqkm landmass with several different biomes for the players to explore all rendered using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4.”
Closed alpha is apparently planned for Q2 of next year, with early access likewise landing in 2020. The Steam page is up for you to trawl around too; check out the new images (surprisingly pretty, right?) and trailer below:
