'Wakfu' Gets Steam Release Date - Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 4, 2014 @ 10:06 a.m. PDT

Touchdown in the World of Twelve and set off on a great adventure in Wakfu, a massively multiplayer online role playing universe where humor goes hand in hand with action-packed, tactical battles.

The story of Wakfu takes place a long time after that of DOFUS. An ogre named Ogrest gathered all the six Dofus and gained boundless powers. The ogre offered his beloved the dragon eggs. But she turned down the present though worthy of the gods themselves, and Ogrest started shedding tears of rage and pique. The tears of the ogre made the ocean level increase so much that parts of the World are now submerged to the inhabitants' great displeasure. Now gods and heroes of the World are starting a new adventure before reaching Ogrest and confront him in an ultimate fight!

Bright graphics and a fantasy universe are also part of this project even though the Ankama Games team will be adding many innovations to the tactical gameplay it's famous for! In Wakfu, the player will discover a vast world inhabited by all sorts of surprising creatures.

The current closed beta for WAKFU will end on Sept. 16. Beta players will keep their progression and items acquired throughout the testing phase; there will be no server wipe. To thank the closed beta players, a special item inspired by the Valve universe will be available.

To start the WAKFU adventure on Steam, a limited number of closed beta keys are available. Players can redeem the code on Steam and start playing now, but once the codes are gone, you'll have to wait until the official launch.

Wakfu is an online game with unique political and environmental features, aimed at both experienced players and beginners: thanks to the turn-based tactical fighting system, everyone will discover they have tactician skills.

Wakfu offers an offbeat humour and plays with numerous cultural references. Only in WAKFU can players explore Tienti Beach, sunbathe on Bilbyza and meet Geror Jugnol or Farle Ingalsse…

In Wakfu, players will be the only ones in charge of the evolution of the world: From the common citizen to the Governor, all players have an impact on the ecosystem and the political life of their nation. Whether they protect or exploit the natural species, the choice is theirs. And anyone is free to abide to the laws chosen by the Governor or to break them (and take responsibility for the consequences of their actions…).

In Wakfu, the economy is entirely managed by players: Buying, selling and exchanging items only happens between players (no NPC). To make this system possible, there’s no limit to the number of professions they can master. The extent of their repertoire of recipes, their network of suppliers and the prices they fix will determine the best shopkeepers.
