About Allods Online
Allods Online is a revolutionary massively multiplayer RPG from Gala-Net, the publisher of Flyff and Rappelz, and Astrum Nival, the developer of Heroes of Might & Magic V and Rage of Mages. The largest game development project in Russian history at $12 million, Allods features state of the art graphics by top award-winning artists and a cinematic soundtrack by Mark Morgan (Dexter, Fallout 1 & 2, Planescape: Torment). The game is one of the largest and most comprehensive MMORPGs ever created. It features a vast and gorgeously realized world and flying Astral ships which can be crewed by multiple players to discover new allods and pillage other Astral travelers. Allods also won the Best Game 2009 and Audience Choice awards from the Russian Game Developers Conference.
The game features an unprecedented level of detail for an MMORPG with 2 warring factions, 6 races, 8 archetypes, 28 classes, hundreds of skills, and over 2,000 quests. Its visuals were designed by artists who won the 1st, 2nd, 6th, and 10th place awards at Dominance War, one of the most prestigious global art competitions, in both the 2D and 3D categories. All of the animations are motion captured, and the Allods Online 3D game engine was developed entirely in-house. The orchestral soundtrack, composed by Mark Morgan and rising star Vladislav Isaev, was inspired by classical, electronica, new age, and tribal musical genres. An immense amount of content is featured in the game such as raids, dungeons, pets, balanced PvP, a crafting system designed as mini-games, dozens of zones to explore, and numerous other features. The story spans a series of games published over 11 years beginning with Rage of Mages, and it features a background history remarkable in its complexity and depth.
Allods is being published in English, French, and German by Gala-Net and Gala Networks Europe, one of the largest global operators of free-to-play MMORPGs, and is completely free-to-play. Allods is being developed by Astrum Nival, formerly Nival Online, the largest developer and operator of MMORPGs in Russia.
