Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is a fantasy MMORPG with a focus on adventure, strategic combat and cooperative social play with groups. Set in a fantasy and chaotic world named Terminus, the game sees players rise as a fallen hero who team up with friends in expedition in search for long-lost powerful relics.
Players in Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen can create their own characters by a combination of 7 classes with 5 races and enter the diverse roles from healer to tank to DPS. Players can further customize their heroes by bonding them with the spirits of fallen warriors and unlocking a roster of special skills and spells in character growth. Both quests and levels are not as plentiful as in traditional MMO games but more qualified bearing meaning, challenge and gains.
A group-oriented game, Pantheon offers single-player contents via questing but sets the socially-driven multiplayer interaction in the center stage. Terminus is a harsh world that security in number is almost essential for survival. Challenges from the open world and distinct class design encourage teamwork. So does the special combat system.
Combat in Pantheon differs from its many contenders in its pre-battle planning and cooperation of team mates. Players need strategies and skills to defeat the adversaries in battle. They have to decide what ability sets (for slots are limited) to carry to a battle beforehand, learn to harness abilities and activate the enhanced abilities, work with group members to create multiplayer skill chains via many experiments unleashing the super sympathetic power, and fulfill each hero’s role to make memorable experience for all.
Pantheon conjures up a world rife with challenge, mysteries and rewards. As they party up and have adventure there, players will experience the various landscapes and climates that may require situational equipment and brave the different challenges to grow their characters, uncover secrets and gather treasure from loots to relics. The game has prepared rich multiplayer contents with the group fight, factions and player reputation and so on. And it presents a wild collection of cool features like dual targeting, player-driven economy, adventurous travel and climate change in great details.
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is a classic take on epic adventure MMORPG but with fresh twists in the combat system and focus on multiplayer contents.
