The most eagerly anticipated title of any genre in the booming Russian market, it extends the million-selling property known internationally as Rage of Mages. It's also a major free to play endeavor, at least three years in active development and with a reported $12 million budget. While the feature list includes a significant story, eight classes and a wide variety of environments, the game's most distinctive element is probably the Astral, which will change all the time to provide a constant sense of exploration.
Groups of players can crew customizable vessels to seek out valuable treasures, or to pirate them via PvP encounters incorporating both ship-to-ship and boarding phases. To learn more, IGN recently questioned Nival Online President and Founder Sergey Orlovskiy.
