Tower of Fantasy Gacha Game

Tower of Fantasy could be the next big anime MMORPG, or at least give Bandai Namco's Blue Protocol a run for its money. Banking on the huge popularity of miHoYo's action RPG Genshin Impact, the game from Hotta Studio and Perfect World takes it up a notch by adding the appeal of the massive multiplayer aspect. However, with a free-to-play game usually comes a gacha system, so there is that pressing question: is Tower of Fantasy a gacha game? We investigated, so keep reading to learn about our findings.

While you shouldn't take this article as a guide due to the early state of the game at the time of writing – second closed beta -, it should give you a good idea on what to expect. The likelihood of massive changes in this regard is skimpy, so let's see if there are any foundations to label Tower of Fantasy a gacha game.

Is there gacha in Tower of Fantasy? The answer is yes, although the gacha boxes are limited to weapons. This is because there are no classes in this anime MMORPG and your playstyle depends on the weapons that you equip, which come in the usual rarity, up to SSR. You can switch between three weapons at any time, and these include katana, staff, scythe, pistol, machine gun, daggers, and many more. The arsenal is vast and diverse, with weapons being imbued by elementals such as lightning, fire, and ice, or just deal physical damage.

You can acquire loot boxes – or should we say treasure chests – from the in-game shop with currency that you earn as you progress and explore the open world. You also get free gacha rolls as you complete world quests and unlock achievements. Treasure chests come in gold, purple, and blue rarity, and you can also earn weapon EXP materials.

When is Tower of Fantasy coming out? Possibly by late 2021 in China, but western players will have to wait longer for a more than likely release. Late 2022 or even early 2023 would be our guess, but we'll have to hold on for official confirmation from Perfect World for a global release date.
