Gameloft Shows 1st Gameplay Video For Order and Chaos II
When it comes to mobile MMO’s none are perhaps more popular than Gameloft’s Order and Chaos. Earlier this year they officially announced Order and Chaos II: Redemption, and this week they’ve posted the very first gameplay video showing off the game’s graphics as well as discussing some of the gameplay elements gamers can expect like instant quests and single player dungeon experiences.
Gameloft knows that MMORPG’s can be time-consuming, and generally to do some of the content in this genre you need both time and a party to group up with. Gameloft is counteracting that with solo dungeons that allow players to experience dungeon content when they’re short on time and other players. There will be four solo dungeons at launch with more being added into the game over its lifetime through updates, all which will reward players with loot and items like crafting items for evolving gear as well as gold and tons of other stuff. To get into solo dungeons players will need to expend a daily replenishing item called “Dream Fragments.” As for the instant quests, these will be quests which are triggered automatically once a player enters into a specific zone which is related to a quest they’re on. This eliminates having to talk to NPC’s to grab quests so players can dive right into content. These will also reward loot and gold, and will be in addition to the normal quests which players can access. There’s still no release date for the game but Gameloft have noted that it will be free once it launches.
