FOnline: Ashes of Phoenix launched
« on: September 07, 2014, 12:11:10 pm »
After more than a year spent in development of their FOnline based game, the No Name Yet Team has finally launched Ashes of Phoenix on Friday, September 5th. Here's a short excerpt about the game from the developer's website fonline-aop.net:

Quote
FOnline: Ashes of Phoenix is a Fallout MMORPG based on the FOnline engine. It takes you to Phoenix, Arizona, around 2220.

The city miraculously avoided its global destruction during the Great War of 2077, and a well preserved part of its center remained almost completely unnoticed for almost 150 years. Eventually, a rumor speaking of plentiful resources and intact buildings has been spread into the Wasteland. Independent organizations showed up, preparing themselves for an unavoidable conflict with each other, while stronger forces remain hidden, waiting for the situation to evolve and give them the opportunity to achieve their objectives.

You are a Wastelander, coming to Phoenix for food and adventure. Fortunately, factions there are happily accepting extra manpower in their ranks. Make your choice, and join the battle for the city.

Ashes of Phoenix is a PvP oriented game. It encourages players towards cooperation as well as competition. Recently arrived in Arizona, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a faction composed both of Wasteland characters and other players. In its ranks, you will make your way, explore the Wastes, gather resources, craft gear, barter precious items, gain experience and weapon mastery. Then, you’ll be able to gather with your mates, create new active cells into your faction, explore the city and its undergrounds, face terrifying creatures, control resources, use your sense of diplomacy with other factions and defeat your enemies to become the unique master of Phoenix.



If you never heard about Ashes of Phoenix before, want a quick reminder about the game, or just have a few minutes before the download bar crawls to its finish line, take a look at the videos cinématique extraordinaire prepared by No Name Yet Team shortly before the launch.

If that's still not enough, there's also a bit longer version, which was streamed a few days ago by Cirn0:

But there's a lot more than just the video recordings.
For people who prefer writings over cinematography, Ashes of Phoenix Wiki is filled with information about the actual game mechanics, unique features, items statistics and much more. Not to mention the official forum where you can find further answers to your questions, concrete advices and compare the AoP with other FOnline games for differences.

We also recommend to take a look at our small PlayFOnline launcher/installer utility, which may help you starting AoP while, at the same time, it provides you with a nice overview of the complete family of FOnline-based games. Additionally, for all your value crunching needs we have the server statistics up and running again, this time including AoP as well.

The game itself is awesome but for totally newbies outside fonline community it can be hard, even for old fonliners, game is different but it is very good. The only problems can be crafting, repairing and getting exp. :P Nice maps, good style but you should keep improve them for better performancy, not lagging and fps drops somewhere.  ;)
