On August 18th Artix launched the Progressive Beta of their upcoming MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds. The Progressive Beta is a test between the Alpha and the actual Beta test. This test still only be limited to Guardians in AdventureQuest, Dragon Lords in Dragonfable, and Star Captains in MechQuest.
The game uses a more simplified graphic style than its predecessors to reduce lag time. Also unlike Artix Entertainment's previous games, it features real-time battles instead of turn-based ones. Players who participate in testing will be given special items to show they played the initial testing stages.
Most of AdventureQuest Worlds' gameplay is surrounded around the in-game battles that occur. Unlike Artix Entertainment's previous games, AdventureQuest Worlds is multiplayer which allows for freestyle battling with other players. Instead of turn-by-turn basis battles, it uses real time battling with simultaneous players/monsters. Currently, Artix Entertainment has restricted Player vs. Player battling but has stated they may try it since this game is multiplayer. Players may only battle alongside other players against monsters. After a monster is defeated, the players that participate in that particular battle gain experience points and gold. The players currently can use either a melee attack or a spell attack to damage monsters.
