Kingdoms in Chaos is an open world PvP MMORPG ‘where murderer and monster co-exist’

    
11

That quote in the headline is directly pulled from the description of Kingdoms in Chaos, a new open world MMORPG that recently arrived to Steam Early Access. And that’s not the only bit of flex that this game is showing off:

“A place where murderer and monster co-exist. Huge open world where players can travel anywhere and wage war on other factions. Scour and attack you enemies lands in search of key elements to make epic weapons and armor or just fight for blood! The all ages ultimate hardcore old school fantasy role playing experience!”

Kingdoms in Chaos comes from a lone developer who has the lofty goal of having early access run for one year, though development of the game has been ongoing for five years previously. Early access will run in stages, with the current stage offering two of the game’s planned four races (humans and Orcs, naturally), the next stage adding the Undead race and their territory of Hellfor, and the third and final stage adding the Elf race and their realm of Lylorion.

Early access to Kingdoms in Chaos will set you back $12 right now and pricing may raise once early access is finished, so anyone wanting to fund one person’s dream of making a PvP sandbox are welcome to hop in.

new game announcement and all visuals we get is the 1 picture from the header :(.
can we get some more to see, especially if the game is newly announced?
would be nice if i didn’t have to leave the site for that.

maybe i’m missing something crucial but that has been bogging me for a while now.

a link to every game, leading to a collaberation of pictures / movies / podcast or your own livestreams would be grand!

I’ve been browsing this site long enough to see the same commenters making the same comments on the same articles and I gotta say, the boos when some random new indie PvP project that probably isn’t going anywhere gets announced. People love to quote the wolves and sheep thing but game design has evolved since then. Eve and Albion are two of the most relevant MMORPGs right now, and both of them have ganking and guild vs guild (the higher stage of ganking really). These games aren’t worthless just because you don’t like them. I don’t like those activities either but I don’t bash what other people like.

Besides, this isn’t even necessarily a gankbox. It sounds more like faction warfare to me. (Also a total snore to me unless it compliments a strong co-op intrafactional component… Say what you will about Mark Jacobs but he seems to understand that at least.) Half of y’all liked WoW PvP servers and battlegrounds.

Game design has evolved maybe but humanity hasn’t. Thats the problem with PVP or adversarial systems. No matter the ruleset, you will have people abuse it, and when that happens people leave the game and both the wolves and sheep are out the money and time they invested in the game.

Like I said, plenty of people played WoW PvP even before they changed it. You can play Eve and Albion for thousands of hours and never meet a player killer if you want to progress a certain way (you get literally nothing for attacking people in yellow zones and they barely lose anything so I don’t consider it PK). That’s why they’re growing and not shrinking.
Besides, every MMO on the horizon besides has some form of open world PvP that you can’t opt out of (usually RvR), out of which Eve and Albion will probably still be the gankiest (alongside Corepunk maybe), except New World (which you can opt out of), Pantheon, Book of Travels, Wagadu, and I think each of the superhero games. It’s foolish to write off what most big games are going to focus on when DAoC’s rather gankless system came out 20 years ago.

Hard pass.

They should take a look at New World. Despite the very vocal minority, the majority of MMO players don’t want an FFA gankbox. Amazon listened to feedback and picked up on that, and revamped their whole game accordingly.

I mean, I sincerely hope the dev is successful. I really, truly do. I hope it’s a great game and the hard-core PvPers love it.

But I won’t touch this one.

Um… Okay. I hope the whole “Open world PVP gankbox” thing works for them. I’m sure they’ll figure it out this time.

No, really, I’m being serious. Because if the PVP fans get a game where they can get their murder own, maybe they’ll go there and stop aggitating for more PVP features in the games I actually want to play. (Seriously, it’s like a daily thing on the Warframe forums. “This game could be awesome, all it needs is FFA PVP! I can’t wait to invade someone’s Orbiter and gank some n00bs!”)

Well pvp fans will never settle in one game because:

1. The actual fair fighting pvp players are spread out across many games that have their special variety of pvp rules. There will not suddenly be a magic pvp game that have all the “right” rules to attract all types of pvp players.

2. The gankers will keep moving on because they live on easy kills and griefing – So because after awhile in any pvp game easy killed players leave, and since these players are also those that feedback-respond to griefing (which is why they grief) then griefers have no reason to stay.

3. Always a new pvp game on the horizon. This is THE one that will fix all the pvp problems, attract all the pve players and noobs who will gladly stay and be content for pvp players; it will be awesome and amazing, just you wait and see.

1. There could be but I can’t afford to make it

Sigh. Another gank-box game. :(

With low-rez Minecraft graphics.

I don’t know why folks keep churning these out.

Perhaps because it is easier than making a real game for players.

By its own admission, just another murder sim. Pass.

I wouldn’t touch this game with a 10 foot insulated pole, but leave the graphics out of it. They don’t resemble minecraft at all, they aren’t low rez either, they’re low poly, and in the case of a one-man-game this is a huge benefit to the game. A more apt comparison would be runescape.
lastly f. off with that “real game for real gamers” gatekeeping bullshit
