YouTuber Valthier recently got himself a nice chunk of gameplay in a stress test for Skyforge on its Russian. He didn't quite ascend to godhood, but his video shows off several parts of the early leveling and gameplay for Obsidian and My.com's upcoming MMORPG.
He's got plenty of nice things to say about the visuals and general aesthetic feel of the game, as he shows off all the options for male character creation (since most videos concentrate on the ladies, he says), and the overall graphical feel and cut scenes are top-notch. Class selection could be improved, though, as he worries that players will have trouble sticking with the game if they can't play what they want right out of the gate.
On to gameplay -- it looks fluid and dynamic, though Valthier wishes it leaned more toward action-combat controls than the tab-targeting/action hybrid that it appears to be. The "open" regions are also a bit small for his liking, though there is potential to encounter other random players, something he compares to Neverwinter. As we saw in the developer video a while back, there is some nice variety in boss encounters, even at the low levels that were available in the stress test.
Overall, it's a nice preview of Skyforge and should give you an idea of what you can look forward to in the game's early levels. What are your impressions after watching the video?
