MMORPGs have been stuck in a rut for some time now. The genre has had its heyday, and is now propped up by a small collection of evergreen titles like Final Fantasy XIV or The Elder Scrolls Online. These are great games, but they don’t really provide that hit of nostalgia some of us are looking for.
Enter Ancients Reborn, a brand new take on the classic MMORPG. This mobile entry takes the foundations laid down by the likes of RuneScape or Albion, providing a huge open world to explore with your friends or strangers.
But its real strength lies in its robust crafting, skilling, and player-driven economy systems. Just like in RuneScape, you can spend time developing a variety of different skills, from blacksmithing, to fishing, to woodcutting. While doing so, you’ll gather resources that you can turn into vital equipment and items that you can then sell to other players.
That’s where that economy comes in. You can sell your items in the marketplace, or your very own in-game store. Then, you save your cash in the bank. Using these systems, you can run your very own business in-game, never needing to lift an actual sword and fight.
Those who do like to battle will find plenty to keep them busy though. You can complete quests and fight monsters to level up, take on challenging dungeons to test your skills, or just explore and see what you can find.
The world might be big, but that doesn’t mean it’s a chore to wander about. You can unlock a variety of mounts to help speed up travel. If you like animals in general, you should be pleased to learn that you can also unlock pets to join you on your adventure.
So, basically, if you like classic MMORPGs like RuneScape or Albion Online, you’ll find plenty to like here. It provides a similar gameplay experience, but with visuals that are more reminiscent of the early days of the genre.
