Fans of the classic Record of Lodoss War waiting for more news, there’s now the first few teaser shots for the official online role-playing game. The series itself is long and storied, and the game will be available on PC in Korea and Japan.

 

The first two screenshots and several teaser character profiles were released over on the site here, and it’s a trip back down the 2.5D semi-top down perspective memory lane. Really. The backstory will utilize author Ryo Mizuno’s manga Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch as its base.

    Love the Lodoss franchise, shame that there aren’t more games based on its world. The hardcore D&D setting with anime look is what I find most appealing within it. Would love if there was Baldur’s Gate kind of game out there. Anyway, if this gets translated, I will definitely give it a shot.

    • Aunna Terrell

      Wasn’t the Dreamcast game kinda like Baldur’s Gate?

      • Crimson_Cloud

        More like Dark Alliance, that was a dungeon crawling action RPG, I meant more of the legendary Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2 on the PC with Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Edition rules. With vast towns, tons of NPCs and quests.

  • Shiki

    Is this free to play? Wondering if I should play on Korean server or Japanese…

  • Anzac

    Deedo!

  • Warboss Aohd

    ………..they think they can compete with a 3D mmo, Black Desert at that with this?

    ………i doubt that highly, not unless they managed to make it somehow some fantastic combination of Diablo 2 and Baldur’s Gate.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      don’t even summon Black Desert. way too OP in this situation. (especially after seeing the new and more action packed gameplay of the second beta).
      If we go by over the top view MMO. Lodoss still have to compete against Tree of Savior (that is still looking way better than this game).

      This one is more like a fan centric game

      • Warboss Aohd

        one of the links on the page is literally a article about how they think this will blow Black Desert out of the water.

        • Ni ~Algidus~

          >finds the link
          HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

          • Warboss Aohd

            my reaction exactly.

        • JustThisOne

          Update: The wrong trailer was added, the game looked as good as Black Desert because that *was* the trailer for Black Desert. This post has been updated with the proper trailer. Apologies for the confusion.

          Ouch. xD I guess it could blow itself out of the water.

      • darke

        Yeah. I’d say at least 50% of ‘sales’ will be based on nostalgia. :(

        Might pick up RO converts as well due to it’s look, if it’s ‘social’ enough too.

  • Dystopiq

    So this is supposed to give Black Desert a run for its money? I don’t know.

    • darke

      It doesn’t cost them anything to be hopeful. :)

  • Callonia

    Guys guys, that black desert youtube video was an accident by siliconera.

  • fairysun

    Man, I wish it’s an RPG genre.
    I would like to play as Pirotess.

  • Exkaiser

    The pauldrons need to be bigger. It’s not really Lodoss without them.

  • Sergio Briceño

    If it’s anything like RoLW on DC, then it’s definitely worth cheking out.
