Games like Drakensang Online show that it isn’t necessary to have a paid subscription to enjoy online games. One of the largest MMORPGs developed in Europe, the game had over 35 million registered accounts at the last count.
Fans of Diablo will find the isometric perspective familiar. The game offers four different character classes, Dragonknight, Ranger, Spellweaver, and Steam Mechanicus. Not wanting players to miss out, it’s possible for you to create up to four characters per account and server.
The game is designed to be played with others but is just as fun in solo play. There is a guild system where players can organize themselves into different alliances.
The game takes place in Duria, a fully explorable open world that is inspired by medieval Europe. There are eleven different regions in Duria, each with cities, dungeons, and wilderness areas to explore.
Players wishing to progress faster have the option of using the in-game currency Andermant. It can be purchased but it isn’t obligatory. Players can also earn it in the game by completing quests, opening chests, and slaying monsters.
The game is regularly updated with Sands of Malice the latest expansion. It adds the deserts of Quaizah as a location. The level cap has now been expanded to 55 and over 160 new items added with new customization options. New mounts, costumes, and pets are all available to be discovered, adding to the rich detail in the new desert setting.
Drakensang Online is a different take on the MMORPG and a refreshing break from the usual paid subscriptions. This freemium game is one that no one has an excuse not to try.
