Russia-based game publisher Astrum Online Entertainment showcased eight titles at Gstar 2008, among which, Allods Online is particularly eye-catching.

The Allods Online world has numerous floating islands. Players have to choose one of the two factions when creating their characters. And there are mainly two types of gameplay in Allods Online. One is to take adventures on the islands of their own faction. The other is to sneak into the other faction's islands to PvP against enemies. Players will travel between islands by taking an airship, instead of taking a boat or a ship.

These airships are designed in different models. Each airship can accommodate 5 to 25 people. It can also be used as a weapon. The special shield on the airship can withstand attacks. But once the shield is unfolded, the airship can't launch attack. So players have to leap at the chance to launch attack when the enemy is folding the shield. One airship requires at least 5 players, so player coordination is particularly important. Normally, the bigger the airship is, the more powerful the airship will be, and of course, the bigger the crew is, the more difficult for them to coordinate.

The Allods Online world does not stay in a stable condition. Sometimes, there will be new islands coming out. The player who discovers the island can name the island. So it won’t be surprising if you see islands with odd names here and there.

Nival Online is the developer behind Allods Online. The game is set to release in Russia in March 2009, and its French, Italian, German, Spanish and English versions are targeted for September 2009. Nival Online President Sergey Orlovskiy said in an interview that he expects Allods Online to be number 1 title in the market, and the top Russian-made one internationally. How much success will this Russian-made achieve in the international market? Time will tell!

a great article. your and my experience does not have much differences and i also like enjoying the game's sorroundings and doing quest with a group of people but having too much botters and cheaters really destroys my gaming experience.

Aion, as Beautiful as Before, Is Different to Me Now



Personally, I found Final fantasy XI to be a big let down. The pace of the game is so tedious. Being a big fan of the whole series on consoles- i expected quite a lot. However, Perhaps FFXIV may be different. F2P sounds good however a lot of riff raff usual entail with such things.

FF XIV Follow-up Report: F2P is not an Impossible Dream



Sad....Is she that godly at CS?? I doubth it. Quiting school bad move. "models for a friend" = Doing Xrated things and degrating your self. Notice it's not a professional company. I mean honestly, if you can't even finish the basics which is (1st-12th grade) and graduate.... How much or a moron can you be??.... Her looks will fade, her hands will develop artritis and she will either get pregnant or catch an STD and end up working a dead end shitty job living with her parents. But this is after the whole CS thing blows up in her face.
