Crowfall - Throne War MMO

Recommended Posts

Anyone plays this game?

It's a mix between a MMO and a strategy game, dubbed "Game of thrones meets EVE Online". Its founders are J Todd Coleman (Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101) and Gordon Walton (Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Sims Online). They have raised nearly $30M to realize their vision, with 330,000 registered users.

What's different in Crowfall:

  • Free city building: every player can build their own city in the Eternal Kingdoms
  • The focus on strategy elements: caravans, territory conquest, crafting, fortifications, politics, war
  • Unique and temporary worlds: procedurally generated maps that "end" when victory conditions are met
  • Different ways to win: through Glory (quests from the gods), Power (PvP and sieging), and Wealth (crafting and building)
  • Seasons and day / night cycle: every world is dynamic and shows the passage of time

The game will enter its Beta phase this year, and anybody who registers a free account can participate to it.

It's been a year since my last message and Crowfall has progressed into Closed Beta (which is free for anyone who registers).


The studio has been hard at work, with the help of Unity, to improve performances and especially during large-scale fights (100+ players). They also enhanced the character advancement, by revamping of the attribute system, adding disciplines and making classes Shadowbane-inspired. Caravans, refineries and mounts have been added to the game. GvG campaigns can usually be played too.


The game still feature gruesome mechanics, such as grave digging, necromancy and sacrifices to gods. 


There's this video showing some PvP, medium-scale fights :
