Realms Online (known as Regnum online in Latin American and Europe) is a free to play 3D fantasy MMORPG similar to the subscription-based MMORPG, Dark Age of Camelot (DAoC). Both games have realm versus realm action (RvR), 3 realms to choose from, and similar graphics. Regnum is an uniquely balanced game that allows for both intensely competitive PvP (Player vs Player) gaming as well as deeply engaging PvE (Player vs Environment) gaming.
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.
The control of the game is closely related to the western standards of movement scheme that is W, A, S, D. clicks are only used either to target something or initiate the fight and of course starting the menu. Auto run feature is a blessing of for players, by pressing Q they are relieve from extensive walking.
Although the game has been released in recent past (2007), it doesn’t have the prettiest graphics. But the gameplay and combat options are just superb.
