Knight Online "Spiritual Successor" Rise Online World In All-Access Alpha
There's a new free-to-play MMORPG out there, and you can play it right now! For about 90% of gamers -- the "starving for an MMORPG, I'll try anything" crowd -- that's enough to give RokoSoft's Rise Online World a shot. It's in alpha but you can download and play it right now.
The website doesn't offer much in terms of significant details beyond the typical MMO fare: PvP, PvE, boss fights, mounts, and so forth. Each class has two sub-classes, with the example given of the rogue class, which you can enjoy as "an archer and assassin whenever you feel bored or wish." That's the end of the sentence: "feel bored or wish." The rest of the site features similarly iffy translations ("Bosss [sic] with different mechanics") and the "Costumes" section is entirely in Turkish, according to Google Translate.
Why is it being made? I mean, other than the obvious reason that anyone makes an MMORPG? According to YouTuber KiraTV, the game is a "spiritual successor" to Knight Online, which he described as "f***ing mega in Turkey," which would explain why a dev from that country would seek to re-create it.
So if you're familiar with Knight Online and, like KiraTV, have nostalgia for it, you might want to give Rise Online World a shot. RokoSoft has plenty of videos on its site if you want to see what looks like. Just don't expect the best localization at the early alpha stage of the game's development.
