Aeria Games' latest free to play MMORPG, Echo of Soul, has officially launched on Steam. Almost two days into the Steam launch now, the reviews are coming in mixed with some of the items pointed out in our First Look video being called out as negative items (such as gender locking, a sometimes silly camera, and repetitive gameplay), while positive reviewers tend to see a more traditional MMORPG, low kill count quests, and nice single player and co-op dungeon options as positive features.

Issues with the Echo of Soul client being denied by certain anti-virus software suites seems to still be an issue and Aeria Games has posted on Steam a message about getting around that issue and why it happens.

Echo of Soul features five classes with which to explore the game's world: the Warrior, a fearsome knight; the Archer, an enigmatic songbird; the Rogue, a solitary assassin; the Guardian, a warden of nature; and the Sorceress, a master of ice and fire spells. Content wise there are currently over 1,600 quests, PvP, and 60 party and Solo dungeons to explore.

Check it out and let us know what you think!

Echo of soul at it's surface is a darn good game (i do hate aeria games' antics), but here are some things that one can look forward to from eos:
-The quests are generic but they are not tiring and give out good stuff...also, since the game just launched you'll actually see (gasp!) other people questing even at low lvls.
-The pvp up to lvl 60 is pretty fun but it can get trite later on since there are only 2 bg maps.
Also, the smart matching system makes for quick pvp since your lvl and stats are adjusted so that all the people have same stats as per their class.
-Skills are fun to mess with, although there is a some imbalance in subclass choices.
Although it's a stand and hit game so if you're laggy you're shit out of luck in pvp and solo dungeons.
-When all is said and done, it is a fun game.

All that changes at 60, when reality hits and you have to deal with lvl 60 dungeons and pvp which is a whole new ballpark, the gems at 60 are a different kind, the pvp changes from 2 minute battles to 10 second fights, the dungeons are harder to solo and dungeons do get harder.
But hey, that's all supposed to be fun right...game is supposed to be harder at 60, right, right!
well, not for the first few hours or days, since it takes a lot of early prep or dying-grinding-dying in pvp and dungeons before you can enjoy endgame properly
It is a game that's worth a shot.

the game is not bad but its also not good its mediocre and THAT is the problem. the game does not try to take a risk and make something new it just stays in the safe spot .

i can't complain about this game nor can i praise the game is just too damn basic but because its a basic mmo its also a solid basic as it can get mmo.

Crap Animations, Absolutly NO fluid combat, Boring Questing. Crap graphic. Crap Cinemetric.

To reset Skills u need a "Skill Reset Stone", most of them u just can get via CashShop. A few while leveling up too.

Unbalanced Classes, witch will get balanced by Aeriagames in the future, my promise. U can bet two times what happen, in my opinion they enforce the players to get a Stone for the Reset with this behavior.

Not mounted!

one of the worst games i`ve played in the past 2 years, is fun till you get to 60, then you realise how bad the game is (+ its just another generic mmorpg with nothing special) 0 pvp balance, boring quests, nothing diferent form any other mmo out there, etc etc etc...

Tried it on Thailand server. Hyped on this for a long time. Tried the EU server, then delete shortly after that. Gender locked, poorly made quests... since i've been playing Black Desert Japan, i dont think i can put up with games like this anymore. Sorry for high expectation.
