Wizard Online: An Open-World Virtual Reality MMO

Since virtual reality is more alive than ever due to the launch of the Oculus Rift pre-orders, more and more games have a reason to venture into this relatively unknown territory. Wizard Online is no different, which will be the first virtual reality and motion control supported open-world game to be released in 2016, if everything goes according to plan.

Wizard Online

If you love MMOs that focus on the use of magic, then Wizard Online should be exactly your cup of tea. With a storyline that is quite dark, you’ll see the main character fighting for revenge after seeing his family get killed. Whether or not you give in to evil is up to you to decide. The game features creatures such as Satan, Baphomet and other major devils that can kill your character permanently. When you defeat them, they will drop Demonic, Angelic and Legendary items though, so fighting them is definitely worth it; just don’t do it until you know you’re ready.

In Wizard Online nothing’s too crazy, as you fly on broomsticks, train and evolve dragons and use satanic mounts to make your way across a vast world. Each character has access to both a sword and a wand, so when you’re out of mana you can simply teleport to your enemy and start hitting them up with some melee attacks.

The game is still in alpha, but is set to release on January 29, 2016. We’re definitely excited to try this one out! Now we just gotta get our hands on an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, as well as a motion controller.

 

Our Thoughts

If anything catches our interest, it’s a virtual reality MMO and that’s exactly what Wizard Online is. With perma-death in place, the game might scare off some of the more casual gamers, but what we know about the game now truly sounds interesting. We can’t wait to see how this one turns out!
