NGames, under their Game321 flag, is starting a closed beta for their free to play browser game, Abyss Dark Arisen, which is set to launch sometime in June. Abyss is a 3D ARPG in the spirit of Diablo 3 and uses Stage 3D technology to allow browser play without the need for any client or plugin installation.
In Abyss Dark Arisen, there are 3 classes for players to choose from: Warrior, Mage and Priest. In a world filled with magic and swords, each class also has special skills that must be unlocked. With a smaller hotbar than other similar titles, Abyss tries to narrow the focus of gameplay and create a more action oriented combat. While this type of game of course has a solo play mode, Abyss encourages you to grab a friend or two for some challenging dungeon diving and also features a dueling arena mode and a match mode where teams of over 10 players can do battle.
On the story side of things there are gods, giants, some elves…the usual “things were good and then they weren’t” type things and of course it’s all up to you to restore some type of balance. But who cares, right? We all know this type of game comes down to getting as many purples as you can, as fast as you can.
