Guardians of Ember: new game from Dragon’s Prophet makers coming west, not F2P

Guardians of Ember

InselGames acquired the rights to publish the latest game from Runewaker, developer of Runes of Magic and Dragon’s Prophet. Guardians of Ember is a hack and slash originally released in Taiwan as Embergarde and as a free-to-play game, but InselGames is planning on releasing it in the west as a buy-to-play title with optional in-game purchases. Guardians of Ember will launch via Steam Early Access mid-September 2016 in three editions: Standard, Demigod and the Ultimate Immortal Edition.

Forsaking the traditional third-person view from its previous games, Runewaker now goes for an isometric, Diablo-like perspective and a dual class system – you can choose a second class after you reach level 15. Guardians of Ember also comes with a housing system, four races and six classes and various PvP options: 1v1, 3v3 and 5v5. InselGames is the publisher of the ill-fated MMORPG Trinium Wars and is planning to translate Guardians of Ember into German and French, besides the mandatory English.

The official website is here and you can watch the announcement trailer below. Right below is some pure gameplay from Embergarde taken from the Taiwan closed beta, so you can see how it actually plays.

    From looking at the videos, character creation isn’t going to be much to shout about and the gameplay itself isn’t exactly offering anything new to the genre either. InselGames only have 2 other games in it’s stable – world of fishing and the lemon that was infinium wars – so they might fare better by offering another F2P title, rather than going down the B2P line, because it’s doubtful that anyone is going to drop any money on this, given their track record so far – and why should they? PoE offers more, for a down payment of nothing, and that game’s going to be Guardian’s closest rival.

    It really must be easy to get your MMO an award 😀 (on the Steam page, they have this sentence; “GoE is the brand new hack ‘n’ slash from Runewaker, the creators of the award winning MMOs Runes of Magic and Dragon’s Prophet”)

    Anyway, unlike Lost Ark, this looks generic. Perhaps it maybe a step-up from Devillion but that wouldn’t be saying much (and until I see more, I really, really doubt it’d be as good as Path of Exile).
