Throne and Liberty is looking good...in some aspects it looks DAMN good. Today is no exception as NCSoft has dropped a new video featuring gameplay from a company-wide internal testing event. The event had employees testing out the character creator, the in-game tutorial, some world boss fights, and the PvP castle seige.
Everything shown in the video looks great, most of the time at least. In my opinion, sometimes there's actually TOO much happening on screen and it's hard to parse out what you should be looking at but maybe that's because I'm not sitting there actually playing it yet.
Throne and Liberty is still expected to release in the first half of 2023 and apparently the team was quite happy with the test results. “The massive playtest, which involved thousands of employees received tons of positive feedback about Throne & Liberty’s game content and competitiveness,” said NC Principal Development Management Officer, Moon Young Choi. “We will continue to focus on improving game content, taking into account all the internal feedback we received, before the game’s release next year.”
I am certainly looking forward to getting my hands on Throne and Liberty, hell even if the rumors are true and Amazon ends up publishing the title.
That said, though, haven't we all been burnt enough by NCSoft games in the past to be skeptical? Some small "P2W" addition, some excessively grindy mechanic that pushes a cash shop purchase, some tedious management of inventory to encourage a few bucks out of the wallet?
I'm interested in Throne and Liberty, very much so, but I think we'd be crazy not to be dubious for now.
