Tiny Shark Interactive announced their upcoming open world RPG, Exzore: The Rising, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Set in the medieval world of Eogaan, the game follows Damien Clive, former commander of the Exzore army unit, as he emerges from the ashes of his betrayal to seek retribution and regain his honor. Exzore: The Rising MMO features the use of “mechanical gadgets” which give special abilities to the hero and can be used in combat and exploration. Furthermore, the game features a unique Affinity system, which affects the player’s experience and how the story unfolds as the character interacts with the game world and the various factions, as well as an extensive combat system that allows players to mix and match Exzore abilities in a wide variety of combos.
“We wanted to create a real role-playing experience in which players’ choices have an effect on the gameplay experience,” says Vishal Ranga, Creative Lead of Tiny Shark Interactive. “The NPCs and your enemies will get smarter and stronger as you play, so players will really need to consider their actions. Additionally, experimenting and coming up with creative ways to use the special abilities of the Exzore gadgets really make the game your own.”
Eogaan is split into four factions, each with its own community and rules. As you play, your interactions between the different factions will affect the game’s story and how it progresses. Favor any faction of your choice to get special missions, rewards, benefits, and abilities. Moreover, each faction has its own motivations and agendas. The Affinity parameter will be altered as a consequence of player’s choices in game. Every mission will alter affinity, increasing toward one and decreasing toward another. Ultimately, affinities are important because they directly affect the character and mission progression, and play an important role in gameplay experience. Choose your faction and actions wisely, as they may alter how the story ends.
Key features of Exzore: The Rising MMO include:
