Legends of Aria is Going Free to Play

Legends of Aria is going free to play as it returns to its hardcore PvP roots in the New Dawn update. The new update will be coming sometime in November, though the exact date hasn’t been pinned down just yet. It was just a little over a month ago that the studio announced they were cutting the price of the game and introducing premium subscriptions. So it’s a little bit of a surprise that the game is now going free to play as well. We’ve been following this game since it was first announced and first had its Kickstarter campaign back in 2014. At that time it was called Shards Online.

Along with going free to play New Dawn is bringing back a fan favorite, The Wilderness. The update will also make changes to Warriors as well as Militias. Players will also be able to become citizens of one of the many towns in the world with the new Township feature. Stealing and Snooping are also going to now be viable options for those who want to master the art of thievery. New quests and missions have also been added including resource missions, quests for professions, and new episodic content.

On top of all of that there are a ton of quality of life updates, bug fixes, and a whole lot more to explore once the update launches. As I said before, the press release hasn’t given an exact date yet so if you want to catch it when it goes free to play you’ll have to keep an eye out on social media or add it to your wishlist on Steam.

The price is dropping down to $19.99 from $29.99 in the hopes of making the game more accessible to new players.

At the moment reoccurring subscriptions are only available to those who have purchased the game through the official site.

On top of these perks, there are additional perks based on the age of a player’s subscription. These perks are given out immediately on the purchase of your subscription. So, if you buy a 12-month subscription you’ll get Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 of the perks all at once. The current age perks are a Tier 1 cloak, a Savage Horse Mount, a War Bear Mount, and a Royal Llama Mount. These are given at 1 month, 6 months, 12 months, and 18 months respectively.

The in-game store is also being added to the game. In it there are a variety of items available including; Soulstones, character appearance changes, name changes, and an assortment of cosmetic dyes for leather, armor, and clothing. Soulstones will remain available in the loyalty point store as well, so you can still have access to this item through play and redeeming your loyalty points.

300 gems will cost $4.99 but if you buy more gems like the 600, 1200, or 3000 gem packs you will get bonus gems completely free.

Legends of Aria – The World Is Your Marketplace

Legends of Aria is an easy game to hate. It’s not your average MMORPG where you are the chosen one, destined to a fate of daring adventures and greatness. There is no clear goal to achieve, no classic experience levels to grind; you are a nobody with the entire world in front of you. You can decide your fate and accept the missions that other villagers offer you or focus on a set of masteries.

Legends of Aria is a sandbox MMORPG that requires players with the right mindset. You need to know exactly what you are getting into or you will find yourself lost, dazed and confused, looking for a helping hand that doesn’t exist. This is an old-school MMORPG hoping for a large and thriving player community, where you are what you set out to do and you get better at something by performing the respective actions.

This is a spiritual successor to Ultima Online created by former lead developers of the classic MMORPG, but one that shouldn’t rely on nostalgia to cover up for some glaring faults. Old-school should never serve as an excuse for unpolished mechanics and questionable design decisions, with the Early Access stage boasting as much potential as it shows clumsiness.

Kill Ten Rats

Before we delve into the matter of things, let’s put Legends of Aria into context. This game ran a successful Kickstarter campaign when it was called Shards Online, way back in 2014. Fearing that the Shards name could negatively impact the game, Citadel Studios decided to change the title to Legends of Aria. However, the concept of community-driven shards remains, and this is one of its most appealing features. Player-run servers have their own set of rules, so if you prefer unrestricted PvP and ganking, you are free to create or join such a server. The Legends of Aria Early Access is now available, but how is the game shaping up?

In the Legends of Aria MMORPG, you have over 30 skills at your grasp. You don’t have to restrict yourself to a couple of them, but you can’t be a master of all trades since there is a skill level cap that requires you to keep a watchful eye over your specialties. Some trainers will teach you the basics but evolving requires a lot of experience and grinding. Legends of Aria doesn’t ask you to grind through experience levels as you usually do in theme-park MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, but there is a significant grind to each skill, turning Legends of Aria into a colossal and somewhat tedious time sink.

Selecting your starting character is a biting decision. The choice between Warrior, Mage, Archer, Bard, and Blacksmith isn’t entirely straightforward, because it will greatly impact your overall path. My first option was the Archer, but as soon as I discovered that the arrows come in limited numbers, I was in serious trouble. Would I purchase them with my hard-earned coins, or should I set out to craft them myself? For that, you need to chop down some trees and make the arrows with the Carpentry skill, something that can take quite some time.

I decided to take a step back and go for the Warrior class, but every weapon and piece of gear has a durability factor, so soon I found myself hitting rats with my bare fists. Luckily, I was able to afford a pointy warfork and some protective armor to speed up my progress. Or you can learn blacksmithing and craft your own gear and weapons, it’s up to you.

Before starting your journey, a quick trip to the settings page is strongly recommend in order to change movement control to WASD. The default control system feels obtuse and harmful to the experience, with this simple change making a world of difference.

You’ll spend a long time down in the sewers killing spiders, rats and bats, which conveniently drop bags of coins and other items. Bandit camps and graveyards are other relevant grind locations, with non-negligible loot drops from each fallen enemy. Each action that you make rewards you with a minuscule amount of skill experience, so it’s inevitable that you’ll repeat it to exhaustion.

Taming is a crucial skill as it will bring strength in numbers. You start by taming a chicken, but as soon as you can tame giant rats, you are on your way to having your own private army. Five rats will serve as a great aid, damage sponges that divert your enemy as you relentlessly attack without interruptions. However, I’m not a fan of the text commands that you must input in the chat (“all attack”, “all follow”, “all guard” and so on) because it’s not 1997 anymore.

Slashing, Lancing and Archery are skills that improve as you use the respective weapons, while Healing almost comes as second nature. Bandages are your best friend in Legends of Aria, so make sure that you carry a few hundred with you. You read that right, hundreds!

Our House in the Middle of Celador

The sandbox mechanics in Legends of Aria offer you the means to forge your own path. For most players, that path involves the endless grind of the most profitable areas for gold coins and to become a master at a given profession. The logical next step is purchasing or building a house, with the player housing system coming into play.

If you have the necessary currency, you can purchase a land deed and a house blueprint. Welcome to a world of cozy comfort and taxes. To build your house you need to gather the resources as well, so it won’t be a simple task, but when you decide where to settle down, you open a world of possibilities, if by possibilities you mean a marketplace, that is.

You can hire a merchant NPC to sell your crafted goods right next to your house, in the hopes that many adventures happen to go by and fall for your wares. You’ll find countless merchants in the world of Celador trying to make a buck from other players, small cogs in a gigantic machine of player-driven economy. While your initial gear can be purchased from town merchants, the best gear is player-crafted, so you must browse through the merchandise from the hired merchants if you want to make any progress.

Nonetheless, the world feels somewhat empty, without much going on. Apart from the overblown number of merchants and many players assembling at the inn to eat, rest, and bind to the location, there isn’t much going on in terms of excitement. You must create your own stories and that involves using gatekeepers to fast travel to distant regions, grinding and fighting for most of the time.

Combat in Legends of Aria is dull and without any sort of in-depth tactical prerequisites. It feels like a means to an end that should be made much more exciting; you sit through it, bandages and healing potions ready to be used, watching as your hero misses half of the swings because that’s how it is meant to be. While you may go for other, more peaceful jobs, everyone will have to fight sooner or later, so this is an area that should be improved.

The enemies don’t show any signs of intelligence, such as bandits failing to notice you as you rub shoulders with them, or haplessly backtracking to their spawn point as soon as you move a few inches away from it. All humans and wild creatures also tend to resort to the same behavior; attack until their health bar is low, then suddenly try a silly escape that never amounts to anything.

Die in protected areas and you’ll lose all your valuable possessions unless they are blessed. You will return in underpants, stripped from your belongings but reinvigorated by the skills that you won’t forget. A few places such as the Barren Lands should be avoided until you feel confident in your skills, as this unguarded area is the place where open PvP unfolds. This is a change from the initial plan of making Legends of Aria a full open PvP sandbox, but it’s a comprehensible decision considering that the frustration of losing your loot can be devastating, especially for new players who won’t have the time to settle in.

Out of Time

The UI in Legends of Aria is, to put it bluntly, a thing of the past and could do with a major revamp. The character creation system gives you a glimpse of what’s to come, with bland and bad looking buttons straight out of the early noughties. The in-game experience isn’t any better, with a clunky UI that can’t be excused by the simple “it’s old-school” reasoning. While the core mechanics of any game may deliberately feel old-school, the interface should never feel clunky and a chore in some respects.

The backpack is a good example of this. The jumbled mess of superimposed objects that you must rummage through is a weird design decision that in no way improves the standard inventory experience. The object list right below helps slightly, but with dozens of objects to scroll through you’ll soon find yourself longing for a proper, large grid-based inventory. The mini-map and world map are pretty much useless as well (and you have to buy a map for each region), and once again the old-school excuse doesn’t stick in this situation. What kind of joy arises from being unable to zoom in the world map and seeing the previously discovered locations in some detail?

There are other issues showing that Legends of Aria still has a long way to go before an official release. Despite being in development for five years, Legends of Aria lacks polish in many areas, including severe lag issues that make it unplayable. There are also other problems such as floating objects, clipping issues, actions that fail to register such as picking up an item, using a bed at the inn, and more.

Legends of Aria feels like a bittersweet return to the roots of the MMORPG genre. It offers an incredible depth that can be rewarding, but cuts corners in many other parts. The graphics don’t look bad when zoomed out, but character models are utterly outdated, while combat is just present, without any excitement or depth. However, it’s the rare kind of experience that does without the sort of hand-holding that plagues most similar MMOs. You have a world in the palm of your hands that isn’t pushing you to go here or there; you make your own tale, albeit one with many hindrances along the way.

The goal of becoming a spiritual successor to Ultima Online isn’t entirely farfetched, but it feels like Legends of Aria could use a couple of years of additional polish to become a true old-school sandbox MMORPG for the new generation. The big question that remains is if players are going to wait that long for it to happen.

Legends of Aria Steam Launch Announced

Citadel Studios has announced that the Legends of Aria Steam launch date will be August 6th. We’ve been following the game since it was first announced in 2014, though back then it was called Shards Online. The game has changed quite a bit since those early days and even now there have been more changes made to the game based on feedback from various beta and alpha events.

“Not only have we added a new playable skillset in the Bard and a whole new armor and weapon enchanting system to make the crafters in our community even more important, but we’re making the world of Aria a much friendlier place to live,” said Derek Brinkmann, CEO. “We’re ecstatic to finally be launching Legends of Aria on Steam after so much hard work and love were poured into the game. We cannot wait for MMO players of all sorts to join us on our journey.”

The Early Access Steam Launch will have a whole lot of new content for all to enjoy.
The Bard skill-line: a unique addition with useful buffs and abilities
A guided experience in the Profession System that takes players from newbie to Grandmaster
A New Weapon and Armor Enchanting system that expands crafting with unique dropped ingredients that allow for more high-end items
Ruleset changes to provide a more consensual PvP experience across more of the map for those who wish to play without fear of ganking
A Fresh Start Server where everyone begins on even footing at launch
An optional Premium Subscription with in-game bonuses and perks

According to the little FAQ section on Steam Citadel Studios estimates that the game will remain in Early Access for 6 to 12 months. This will be when the game is relatively bug free and 100% feature complete. Also talking about the price of Legends of Aria, they had this to say, “MMORPGs and even more so fully persistent sandbox MMORPGs rely heavily on active population. Our plan is to gradually reduce the price of the game over time to reduce the barrier to entry as in-game digital item sales grow to support the ongoing development of the product.”

Legends of Aria Gets a Steam Early Access Release Date

Legends of Aria is making a pretty significant step forward in its development. Citadel Studios has locked down a Legends of Aria early access launch date on Steam and all of the salient details that go along with the announcement.

legends of aria early access launch

Legends of Aria will arrive to Steam Early Access on Tuesday, December 4th. The game’s early access release touts a number of features including skill-based character progression from over 32 unique skills, open player-driven sandbox gameplay, and full mod and custom community server support.

The game is holding a promotion for those who pre-order between now and December 3rd, offering a seven day head start and associated Founder’s Pack bonuses depending on which package you buy.

In addition to the pre-order offer, there will be a number of contests in the run-up to early access. The first of these involves players answering the question “What role will you play?”, with additional entries available to those who sign up to the game’s newsletter. The prize: an ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG Strix Graphics Card and a Lord’s Founder’s Pack, while two runners-up will receive Lord’s Founder’s Packs.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since we began this journey. So much has changed since then,” mused Citadel Studios founder Derek Brinkmann in a statement. “We’ve gone from making a smaller scale online RPG to making the large-scale full-on sandbox MMORPG we’ve been dying to play since Ultima Online, Dark Age of Camelot, and EverQuest first made us all believers in the genre years ago.”

That full-on sandbox experience is summarized in the trailer below.

Our Thoughts

Last time we were in this game, we found that things were becoming more full and intriguing in spite of the game’s overall hands-off approach, so naturally we’re very excited to see the nearly full experience arrive to early access. We also hope that said early access isn’t lacking in features, though that doesn’t seem to be a problem with this one.

Legends of Aria Open Beta and Early Access Launch Imminent

Citadel Studios talk about the road to the Legends of Aria Open Beta and Early Access launch in a new blog post, and we don’t have too much longer to wait now.

Legends of Aria Open Beta and Early Access Launch Imminent

In essence, this means that come June, you can play Legends of Aria for free. Citadel will be “very freely” handing out free trial keys throughout the month so that they can work through the issues that need a lot of people in order to find and fix before they launch Early Acess in July. This will be the final wipe, when Kickstarter backers and Founders begin their week-long headstart period, with rewards to follow.

Notably, this Early Access launch does not include Steam or even the big marketing push. It is hoped that will come around Fall time, if all goes to plan, though who knows what will happen over Spring and Summer, especially for an MMO launch, and Citadel are aware that there will be growing pains and say that they are prepared to work hard to make sure that no bug goes unbalanced and no problem unsolved. Basically, this will be the period to really polish Legends of Aria and they need you to make sure they get it right before the big launch.

You can read the full blog post here.

Our Thoughts

I have been following Legends of Aria for several years now and can’t wait to see what shape its living world will take. I’m so used to theme park MMORPGs that this will be a new thing for me and it’s exciting! Here’s hoping the bugs are minimal, the rollbacks unnecessary, and Legends of Aria launches for all sooner rather than later!

Legends of Aria at PAX East: Going Back to Basics

Last year, Legends of Aria at PAX East was one of those games that had a smaller booth kind of tucked near a side wall. This year, their floorspace had expanded a little bit, which would lead one to think that the game, too, was going to expand. As it was explained to me by executive producer Jeffrey Edwards, however, the devs are taking a “less is more” approach.

Legends of Aria at PAX East: Going Back to Basics

As you’ll likely remember, Legends of Aria has already gone through a couple of iterative shifts; first as Shards Online, which let players put together their own smaller MMO worlds, and now as Legends of Aria, a full-blown sandbox MMORPG. The game was also working on a quest system, but it turns out that the quests weren’t that interesting to players and so they’ve removed quests entirely. Overall, the training wheels have been taken off.

What’s Old Is New Again

Legends of Aria definitely wants to take things back to the old school where you learn by doing. Considering the gameplay loop is still skill-based instead of class-based, it makes sense. While I was speaking with Edwards, I was online in a persistent build of the game, creating a character and wandering around to find things to do. Sure enough, there were no guiding arrows or even instructional pop-ups. Almost immediately, I just started clicking around, harvesting nearby rocks, attacking wolves and bears for the heck of it, and working out how to craft things. I also found myself going back to old MMORPG habits, talking with all the NPCs in the nearby town to see if there were any things that could be taken care of nearby.

That said, despite the lack of being given instruction, the team is going to work on making a new player experience. Legends of Aria is looking to arrive to Steam in June or July of this year and they want to be certain that they can toe the line between telling players how to play and not entirely holding their hand. As one would expect, it’s a challenge, but the devs believe they can figure it out.

The Balance Between “Risk” and “Fun”

Another thing that has me most interested in Legends of Aria’s upcoming build is how the game is handling its crafting. Of course, you get out into the world and start wailing on rocks, then take those gathered materials to an appropriate crafting station to put them together. What’s different here, however, is that you’re able to craft some useful gear from even the most basic of materials. The tradeoff is that you’re going to need a lot of those materials, which will mean it takes a long time. According to Edwards, it’s a way to make sure that Legends of Aria doesn’t conflate “risk” with “fun”; so many sandbox titles are forcing people to go into dangerous areas when they’d rather not, and Legends of Aria is granting those players their wish. As Edwards put it, they want all players to arrive to their game without feeling like interactions are forced.

Of course, there will be plenty of dangers for players to experience out in the world of Legends of Aria. PvP will, indeed, be a thing and there are going to be things for players to get into on the PvE side of things such as dungeons and the like. It’s all a matter of going out and finding said experiences as opposed to being on-the-rails. Players can speak with NPCs who might need to be taken somewhere, which will happen to pass by some interesting locations in the world. Or, ideally, new arrivals will see another person’s custom-built house or interesting gear and use those cues to see if they can get things like that for themselves. By and large, Legends of Aria’s content will be up to the players to discover and disseminate among themselves.

In spite of this scaled-back approach to design, Legends of Aria has still grown. The game’s world has expanded to include four major towns instead of the one, so there will most definitely be plenty of world for people to explore and learn about.

There seems to be a lot of sandbox MMORPGs coming down the pipeline, but Legends of Aria is one of the first that actually seems to care more about making players of all skill levels and interests feel valued, whether they’ve been behind the game from the very first crowdfunding drive or they’re arriving fresh from Steam. It’s taken a long and perhaps roundabout way to get there, but I might just have a new sandbox that will actually let me play in the sand at long last.

Legends of Aria Will Keep its Server Running After Beta

Bad news: the Legends of Aria closed beta test is going to be wrapping up soon – February 11th, to be exact. Good news: the game’s server itself will actually remain online 24/7 after the fact, letting all Founder’s Pack owners play until final beta.

legends of aria closed beta test

The announcement was made during an in-game town hall, confirming that the Azure Sky server will remain online after the wrap of closed beta 1. There are a couple of caveats that should be mentioned, however: for one, an NDA will once again be in effect on February 12th as the servers move back into Experimental status; two, there are no planned wipes at this time, but the devs do reserve the right to do so at any time.

In addition to the news, the game’s server has received a few updates. The PvP flag is now a Karma flag that automatically prevents players from performing actions that could hurt your karma by accident. A new consensual PvP Allegiance system separated from guilds has also been introduced, along with fixes to Beastmastery and taming and additional balance adjustments.

Finally, there will be 2v2 Friday Night Fights at the Pyros’ Landing Arena. The bouts will start at 8pm EST with teams squaring off for in-game viewers and those watching via Twitch. The event is promising attendees reason to join in even if they’re not PvP’ers, including giveaways of Founder’s Packs.

Our Thoughts

Sounds like testing is going well overall for Legends of Aria. Not only will there now be a sense of persistence, we’re likely going to see additional gameplay updates and possibly expanded closed beta phases. Overall it’s looking like solid, steady progress for this sandbox MMO!

Legends of Aria Begins Closed Beta

The metamorphosis of the Shards Online caterpillar into the Legends of Aria butterfly has now seen it spread its wings and begin flight. Today marks the start of Legends of Aria closed beta with an update that brings balance adjustments, new areas, and system adjustments.

legends of aria closed beta

Closed beta will see a new Eastern Frontier world area added to the game, along with two new major cities: the mining city of Helm and the port town of Pyros Landing. There’s also an additional world dungeon and a triggered server-wide Catacombs encounter that requires large groups and features a final boss fight that will “require more than just numbers to defeat”.

The new build is also introducing an overhaul to the criminal/flagging system, with player actions – positive or negative – contributing to an overall Karma score. The system is meant to remove arbitrary criminal flags and maintain a sense of risk vs. reward. There’s also new UI elements, changes to character movement to make it feel smoother, and a variety of balance tweaks to skills, Guard Zones and more.

Closed beta will run from today, January 29th through Sunday, February 11th. The closed beta has no NDA and characters who were in the final alpha test will not be wiped. Closed beta launch will also signal the start of Founder’s Pack sales, which will include closed beta access and a variety of other perks.

Our Thoughts

Congratulations are in order to Citadel Studios for making it to closed beta. We’re looking forward to seeing how this new phase of development will steer Legends of Aria and whether there will be more changes in store…though likely not on the same scale of changing the game type entirely.

The MMO Alpha and Beta List: October 20, 2017

We aren’t seeing the typical influx of spooky or creepy Halloween like games that we so often see this time of year. This is one of the reasons the beta list doesn’t seem very active at the moment. If you’re looking to get into the Halloween spirit, check out our list of Halloween events in MMOs that are already live.

If you take a look at the list you’ll only see 4 new items this week. That’s because a lot of what happened in the industry this week had to do with delaying launches, opening up the beta to more people, and other things like that.

Starting all of that off is Shadowgun Legends which just launched their closed beta on Thursday. Because it’s the first round of closed beta, only a select number of people were invited, but you can expect more to be added over time.

Legends of Aria wrapped up alpha testing this week. They don’t have any plans yet for when they will move into beta, however.

Closers is opening up their closed alpha this weekend to allow the public a chance to give it a try, so if you’ve been wanting to try out the anime style game, this is your chance.

Life is Feudal announced they would be going into open beta on November 17th but based on the language they use, it sounds more like a soft launch than an actual beta.

The new game on the list this week is Starborne. It is a 4X MMORTS and the first game made by Icelandic developers Solid Clouds, an indie studio with industry veterans including Ásgeir Ásgeirsson, EVE Online’s former Art Director, and Hrafnkell Óskarsson, who spearheaded the design and lore of EVE Online.

And to wrap up the week, we learned that Conan Exiles’ launch will be delayed until Q2 2018. This will give Funcom more time to put polish on the game.

As always you can find all of this and more in the lists below. Keep an eye out for the new  flag which will show you what was newly added this week.

Don’t forget that Destiny 2 is coming to PC next week!
