In the free-to-play MMORPG ASTA – The War of Tears and Winds, you get to explore a huge fantasy world. Participate in intense raids and guild wars.
Elves, dwarves, and orcs – they are the regular cast of your typical fantasy universe. It seems like many developers have a hard time straying away from these typical tropes nowadays. That is not the case in Webzen’s free-to-play RPG ASTA – The War of Tears and Winds. The guys and girls behind the MMO chose to pass on all of that and instead developed a world that is based on entirely different lore. The developers at Polygon Games created a vast universe that is inspired by the traditional myths and legends of East Asia!
Of course, the studio didn’t re-invent the wheel. As in most roleplaying games, you start off by creating your very own character that reflects your personality and preferred playstyle. Choose between more than five different classes including Archers, Healers, Mages, Rogues, and Warriors. Additionally, you can select one of two factions, each with their own three races. When you finished creating your character, you go on a big adventure, completing quests, battling it out against various monsters, and constantly leveling up. That way you gradually improve your character’s abilities and evolve into a force to be reckoned with.
What is a fantasy MMORPG without a vast and eclectic world? Each race has its very own beginning region followed by an additional seven zones, which all players get to explore. The world of ASTA – The War of Tears and Winds is enormous, and there is always something new to discover. Aside from the day to day quests you complete, there are numerous difficult challenges. You can either head into smaller dungeons on your own or team up with a bigger group of players to make it through challenging raids. Of course, the challenge will be worth it in the end, as it rewards you with all kinds of rare and valuable items. In case your friends aren’t online, you can simply use the group or raid search to find other players that want to join you.
Fans of huge PvP battles can participate in the guild wars or check out the massive battlegrounds to take on other players. ASTA – The War of Tears and Winds offers a little something for all types of players. Thanks to the CryEngine 3, it also looks gorgeous without overwhelming somewhat older PCs.
