Asiasoft Online, one of the biggest Free to Play publishers in Southeast Asia (SEA), has officially launched the teaser website for AIKA SEA. Even though there are currently 2 English version (North America and Global), it seems Asiasoft Online is not late for the part as none of the other 2 has reached Epic 2 as of now. Earlier on, I did an interview with gPotato, the North American publisher, so do have a look. The official teaser website for AIKA SEA can be accessed here or simply by clicking on the image above. For some information about upcoming updates, click here.
1. Up to 1000 Vs 1000 players in War of Nations
In AIKA, there are 5 nations for players to choose from.With its optimized engine, the game can hold up to 2000 players at the same time in each War of Nations. The objective is for players to invade another nation, obtain its Holy Treasures and bring them back to their own nation. Afraid of being invaded by a much stronger nation? Go all political and form an alliance with an opposing nation! Honor Points will be awarded for each enemy killed or each treasure obtained. These points may later be used to trade for exclusive equipments not found anywhere else.
2. Intense Castle Siege
Within each nation, there is a castle belonging to only the strongest legion. This legion has the power to adjust various settings of the nation, including tax rates and enjoy several exclusive benefits. On a weekly basis, a single legion or a legion alliance can challenge to take control of the castle. Castle Siege is not a simple affair, as the attackers will have to break down walls, defeat powerful guards, avoid traps and more. A sound strategy is needed before launching an attack, while those without any will find themselves in a perilous situation. Don’t miss the chance to rule a nation!
3. For players who are not so keen on Player Vs Player features (PvP)…
Fret (intended spelling error) not! In AIKA, there are over 1,000 interactive quests for players to complete, with more to be added in future updates. Through these quests, players will get to know more about the lore of AIKA and the various disputes between the nations. In addition, there will also be raid dungeons for players to team up and conquer, where I heard various rare equipments drop… AIKA is not just for players hungry for war!
4. Diverse community functions
In AIKA, be it for Player Vs Player (PvP) or Player Vs Environment (PvE), up to 24 players may form a squad to increase survival rate in wars or raids. Tired of having a restrictive maximum capacity found in most games? Now is your chance to fight alongside more of your comrades! Through the messenger system, players from different nations will also be able to communicate with each other. Through player shops and the auction system, players will be able to efficiently find the items they are looking for.
5. Unique Pran system
While other games have a pet system, in AIKA, there are Prans. Basically, Prans are elemental beings who support players in their battles with their special skills. Beginning life as small fairies, players must constantly interact with them and watch them grow into more mature forms. Prans will obtain different personalities, so players must be conscious about the choice of words when communicating.
Eventually, players will be able to dress their Prans with a large wardrobe of fancy costumes to suit their personalities… Or to contradict them.
6. Five main classes to choose from: Warrior, Crusader, Sniper, Dual Gunner, Night Magician and Priest
In addition to the various exciting features above, AIKA offers players five main classes to choose from. Each class will have its own distinctive role to play in either Player Vs Player (PvP) or Player Vs Environment (PvE) scenarios.
Feeling strong and itching to smash players upfront? Go for the Warrior or Crusader. Preferring to attack at the rear or launch sneak attacks on the enemies? Choose the Sniper or Crusader. Having an urge to watch a large group of enemies go up in flames? The Night Magician is the perfect choice. A peaceful-loving player but still wanting to participate in wars? Become a Priest and aid your comrades by healing or boosting them with your support spells. In AIKA, there is no such thing as an unwanted class!
7. Compact client size
With all the features mentioned above, potential players might be skeptical on how large the client size will be. Fear not, as the actual size at launch is just under 1 GB (gigabyte)! Players can enjoy the game without any worries of shortage of disk space. Even with the small client size, the beautiful graphics found in AIKA will not be compromised.
