Anarchy Online is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG). The term applies to role-playing games that can be played online, hosting thousands of players simultaneously.
At first glance it is easy to see why Anarchy Online differs from most other MMORPGs. Anarchy Online is a science fiction MMORPG incorporating a number of new ideas and concepts. Up until Anarchy Online, all other MMORPGs had followed the fantasy theme.
Anarchy Online is also different from other games in the genre by offering random missions and dungeons, giving the player a unique gaming experience. Anarchy Online also has the capability to host up to 10,000 players simultaneously in one world, allowing you to make friends, or enemies, with a large and diverse community.
All MMORPGs follow a similar advancement style: Players are able to increase their abilities and skills through combat and trade skills. Much like in real-life, characters in MMORPGs learn skills through advancement and by building upon other skills. As characters advance they may also branch out into other skills or specialize in a particular type. All this of course is at your control, so you may create a truly unique character.
MMORPGs are able to immerse you into a dynamic world where you ARE someone else, rather than a face behind the screen, and this is perhaps the key to why MMORPGs are the success they are today.
Anarchy Online takes place on the world of Rubi-Ka, and has had three succesful content expansions since release:
Notum Wars is the first ever booster pack for a MMORPG, giving player organisations in Anarchy Online the ability to conquer and control land on Rubi-Ka and exploit the riches of notum through building mining towers. The Notum Wars booster pack is included in the Shadowlands expansion pack, as well as sold separately.
Shadowlands was the first expansion pack for Anarchy Online, opening a complete new world of stunning beauty, great dangers and vast opportunities to the citizens of Rubi-Ka. Scientists of the neutral city of Jobe have opened the portals and enlisted volunteers to explore this new frontier, housing ancient races and cities.
Alien Invasion is the latest expansion for Anarchy Online and centres around an invading force of mysterious aliens (no surprises there!). The expansion also added new social aspects and player controlled cities
