Let’s take a journey with Magnus, a typical Warrior in Aeria Games’ upcoming free to play MMORPG, Echo of Soul. Today’s journey will showcase a bit of the PvE side of the game and give us players in the West an idea of the type of content we will be playing when the game launches and beyond.




Does Echo of Soul have dungeons? Yep! Both solo and party dungeons. I know there is often the argument about “why have solo dungeons in an MMO” but, honestly, I’m a big fan of them. It gives me something to do when my friends aren’t on or when I’m in a funk and am feeling antisocial. Echo of Soul’s solo dungeons also guarantee me loot drops for my specific class so it’s a nice way to feel like I’m progressing even if I’m online alone.

Party dungeons seem to be your typical garden variety dungeons. Get a group of 5 (remember, no dedicated healer) and run through baddies to collect loot. Infinite Dungeons, though, provide a different challenge and layout every time you enter them and have 7 different difficulty settings with greater rewards coming at higher levels of difficulty. You may see a boss you’ve already beaten elsewhere, but expect them to come with new challenges.

For you raiders out there, Echo of Soul will have both 10 and 20 person raiding, but these pieces of content will be added to the Western version of the game post launch.

You can still sign up for beta on the game’s website. Beta starts in May.

    i see SOME good things in the game like difficulty settings in instances and randomly generated .
    and no healers.

    Improve graphics, come up with some new but small content to make a game seem more interesting and different than others, although it’s all same sh*t at the end, and then lets hope people will like it without putting much effort in trying to come up with something new, but honestly.. why is it so hard to combine lets say, Graphics from Blade n Soul, which are amazing but sh*t gameplay, and Battle system of C9 which is free, fun, and actually requires your own skill as a player to be good at it, and not just better equipment, stronger skills, or simply to do more dmg than other guy to be able to win, but yea C9 isn’t perfect or better yet far from it, only thing i like about that game is as i said Battle system, everything else is sh*t, im just saying they could actually listen to what people want, instead of making a game just because it seemed like a good idea to them, but they won’t be the ones playing it… so no point if they like it

    Really? They’re making more games? How about they finish Lime Oddysey first

    • LordHikaru on April 2, 2015

      You do know that Lime Odyssey has a different developer right?

    • Limer on April 3, 2015

    I hope it’s a good game. I’m so tired of Gameforge’s TERA EU moneygrab shit… really… I need something new to play.
