Throne and Liberty FAQs - Your TL Questions, Answered
In spite of the fact that it's one of the most hotly anticipated MMORPGs of 2023, Throne and Liberty is a game wrapped in enigma and shrouded in contradictory information. For many, it has flown largely under the radar until recently. A fact that could well be savvy marketing that works to the game's advantage.
Why There Are So Many Unanswered Throne and Liberty Questions
Usually, new MMORPGs, DLCs, and expansions are plagued by datamining and leaks which help keep the game in the public eye for years before release. With Throne and Liberty, however, details have been sparse despite its 13-year development history. While it certainly doesn't count as a shadow drop, the sparsity of information on Throne and Liberty may well help it escape the all-too-familiar MMORPG formula of mass hype followed by disappointment and player haemorrhaging.
In this sense, it's taken the opposite path to games like Ashes of Creation which have been trying to keep players enthused over years and years of development.
Still, finding concrete information about Throne and Liberty's is a struggle. Even in the year of its release, the internet is rife with contradictory information about whether or not it will be playable on Xbox as well as PlayStation, or whether it will be Unreal Engine 4 or Unreal Engine 5. So, your friendly neighbourhood MMO Games is here to answer your Throne and Liberty questions.
