Isometric action RPGs are some of the most fun and addictive games on the market. Games like Diablo 3 and Torchlight 3 provide endless hours of engaging gameplay and shower you with loot for your efforts. The drawback is that most of the time, these action RPGs are instanced. Corepunk takes the isometric ARPG loot-based formula and marries it with a seamless open-world to create a unique MMORPG experience. With tons of class customization options, a unique fog of war mechanic and a brilliant mashup of fiction genres, Corepunk might just be the action RPG fans of the genre have been waiting for.
Here’s everything you need to know about Corepunk:
While games like Diablo 3 have vast game worlds with plenty of lore to draw from, they segment it through instancing. Corepunk blends the seamless, open maps of MMORPGs and combines it with the exhilarating action mechanics of their isometric ARPG brethren. This makes Corepunk’s world a huge place to explore that will surely make you want to check out every nook and cranny. On top of that, the game’s map is covered by fog of war, meaning you can’t see what is around you beyond a certain range. This makes exploring even both tantalizing and precarious as you don’t know what may be lurking or hiding around the corner. This mechanic can also work in your favor in PVP so use it to get the drop on your opponents.
Corepunk’s name isn’t just there for the cool factor. It stands as a representation of all the fiction genres that exist in its vast world. Just by exploring its map, towns and hubs, you’ll notice tons from a variety of genres, from dark fantasy to cyberpunk to sci-fi. Even the heroes in the game are based on familiar tropes from different types of genres. You can build a character who’s a holy paladin with a mighty sword as well as one who’s a vibrantly colorful and upbeat gunslinger from a cyberpunk world.
Speaking of characters, there’s a lot of customization in that area. Corepunk doesn’t offer you a choice of a class. Instead, it lets you choose a hero who may be slightly inclined towards a certain archetype. From there on, it’s up to you to build your hero the way you see fit. You’ve got choices in specialization talent trees which determine your abilities and skills. Gear will complement the skills by giving you stat boosts. Finally, artifacts will further enhance your hero’s fighting abilities. The basis of your character choices will depend on the style of character you want to play.
The Bottom Line
There are tons of MMORPGs and ARPGs out there but very few attempt to bring the two together. Corepunks aims to be the game that gives you the high powered gameplay of action RPGs like Diablo 3 in a vast and seamlessly open world.
It’s a unique concept we’re looking forward to playing when the game releases.
