Skyforge is a free-to-play 3rd-person action-MMORPG (massively multiplayer online roleplaying game) developed by theMail.Ru Group's Allods Team in collaboration with Obsidian Entertainment and published by Mail.Ru and its subsidiary My.com for selected markets. The project has been in development since 2010 and the first Closed Beta Test was opened to selected players on March 11, 2015 for the PC, with the NA and EU servers currently available. In Skyforge, player takes on a larger than life role as an immortal with incredible powers battling to protect their world from the armies of hostile gods, eventually becoming a god themselves. Character progression within the game is not level based. Instead of a traditional leveling format, Skyforge features a “prestige” system, which allows a player to advance based on the sum total of their stats and progression. This system allows Skyforge players to develop and switch to multiple classes at any time, rather than being locked into an early game class choice like common MMOs. As a player gains more prestige, additional content, gear, and followers are unlocked. Once god mode is achieved Skyforge includes an additional progression system which allows users to manage their followers to increase their character's overall power. Skyforge is an action-combat game MMO in which players move through the world using WASD key with mouse-look and tab-targeting aiming and combat.The player’s primary abilities are focused on the left and right mouse buttons so movement and combat are seamlessly blended and easy to learn. Unlike typical RPGs where players choose their classes early, and level up throughout the game, Skyforge allows players the freedom to develop and play any class they've unlocked. Players can change between classes they have unlocked at any time, as long as they are not in combat. The game will ship with over 10 classes at launch, 3 of which will be unlocked for play right from the start: Lightbinder, Paladin and Cryomancer. The others can be worked toward as players gain rewards for completing game activities. Each class is designed to play distinctively, and to fill certain combat roles. To date the developers have announced 13 classes: Cryomancer, Paladin, Lightbinder, Archer, Berserker, Kinetic, Necromancer, Slayer, Gunner, Warlock / Witch, Monk, Alchemist and Knight.
