Visual Cues And Intuitive Effects Help Players As They Unleash Their Wrath On Unsuspecting Enemies.
Austin, Texas -February 17, 2011 -UTV True Games, an international publisher of multi-player online games, today revealed new details behind the unique visceral combat system in the upcoming MMORPG, Faxion Online. The hellish combat-driven game puts a cheeky spin on the fight between Heaven and Hell as players engage in battle for ultimate dominance. Now in closed beta testing, players can visit www.FaxionOnline.com to obtain a beta key and play the game.
If color-coding isn’t to a player’s liking, Faxion also provides iconic
clues for a player to ascertain their current status. All of the
following states will provide icons: Damage Over Time (DoT) & Heal
Over Time (HoT), Buffs such as Flight, Debuffs including
Knockdown/Stun/Snare/Confusion, and the mysterious Vortex Effects, which affect the player’s display and/or viewing area.
Unsurprisingly, there is room for precisely 42 persistent effect
icons, and they are easy to tell from a glance via picture and color
what they represent. DoTs are divided into elements, each with their own cue — it should take no time to determine a poison debuff compared to fire. Blocked attacks throw off sparks associated with their element; block a holy attack for a shiny shower of golden particles.
Last but not least is a fully-fleshed out combat log which scrolls as
players wrestle for dominance in the war between the two dominions. Checking how that dastardly Brunken Drawler knocked you silly is just a mouse-wheel scroll away. Accurate logging allows players to learn from their fatal mistakes quicker, meaning a reasonable learning curve from the lowliest noob right up to the hardcore veteran who swears his fingers “just slipped–honest!”
The rule of thumb in Faxion is simple: the more severe an effect is,
the stronger the notification to the player will be. Learning the
basic color and icon scheme will allow players to quickly respond to
their foes and be consistently victorious in a world with little
sympathy for failure. After all, there’s nothing more annoying then
dropping motionless to the ground, a pitiful death scream and a chat log message declaring “You have died from your wounds.”
“Faxion Online is about non-stop addictive, combat driven fun and the visceral and very visual cues in our combat system takes players there,” said Frank Lucero Studio Head at UTV True Games. “We don’t want players to rely on the same old visuals instead we want there to be an instinct and intuitiveness to this combat system that also allows them to know their status quickly so they can dish out more pain to their enemies.”
Faxion Online delivers aggressive and robust PVP game play and a unique territory control system that allows the different factions to battle for the fate of the seven deadly sins. Players begin their quest for dominance war-torn limbo battling their way through each location in the game represented by the sins. With a unique multi-classing system, players will have the freedom to play the way they want with achievement and glory through adventure and combat.
