regnum online game

Regnum Online is a free fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) game (although premium content is available for enhanced game play) which runs on both Windows and Linux and I must say it looks really good.

Among it's Features:

  • Regnum offers 3 realms to choose from.
  • 9 fully customizable player characters.
  • An ever expanding number of quests.
  • The ability to capture forts and castles.
  • Expansive lands to explore.
  • Glorious graphical environments in DirectX and OpenGL.
  • Support for Windows and Linux platforms.

One thing which makes Regnum Online better than a lot of others MMORPG games (besides it's graphics and gameplay) is it's user base, currently aprox. 540,397 users being registered to Regnum Online.

The Game Story-Line

The game focuses on the conflict of 3 realms in which players take part, fighting against characters of opposing factions and capturing fortresses and castles aside from the usual player vs monster combats.

Players create characters as their avatars in a fantasy medieval-themed persistent virtual world. The first choice a player must face is selecting one of the three realms or nations: Alsius, icy home of the empire of dwarves, Nordos and Utghars; Ignis the desert homeland of the necromancer dark elves, humans and moloks; or Syrtis, the forested peaceful lands where elves, half-elves and Alturians live. Once a nation is chosen, the player may create a character (up to 3 per account) and customize it by choosing its race, gender, hair style and color, stature, etc. After choosing a realm and race, players go on quests and gain levels in the first two areas. After they have gained sufficient levels, they go to the third area which is called the War Zone, though a specific level is not required. In the War Zone, players can work together in clans or parties to take over enemy forts and castles or to simply hunt down their enemies.
