'Elyon' - New Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 29, 2020 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Set in a world of magical technology and unlimited potential, Elyon is an MMORPG that has you compete in fierce faction wars, take on challenging group combat and features advanced character build options.

Elyon takes place in a high fantasy steampunk world where machines and magic rule and everyone is dependent on flight to explore, travel, and conquer. In search of a new home, adventurers take to the skies using a wide selection of airships, vehicles, and flying mounts to traverse Elyon’s open, highly vertical world.

Vehicles and mounts in Elyon serve more than just the purpose of transportation; they will also provide adventurers with the ultimate battle experience― Elyon’s Realm vs Realm PvP mode. In RvR, factions fight for fame and glory, taking turns to lead offensive and defensive efforts using all kinds of flying vehicles. Players can also join the fight from the ground with mechs and anti-air artillery to fight airborne threats―or initiate ground based aerial attacks depending on the map and strategy. Various strategic weapons such as cannons, mines, and attack buffs are at each faction’s disposal to tip the balance in their favour. The combination of ground-based and aerial combat makes each fight challenging and dynamic.

Most of Elyon’s content is highly customizable, allowing players to tailor detailed aspects of their play experience and unleash their creativity. An airship, for instance, can have its type, appearance, color, and performance modified. Players can even create their own quests, alter their hunting grounds, and change the difficulty when battling monsters in dungeons or hunting areas.

The unveiling of the new trailer was done during the online “Elyon Media Showcase”. During the presentation, producer Kim Hyung-joon highlighted some of the key features of Elyon which is looking to really hone in on the essentials of the MMO genre. In particular, Elyon focused on in-depth character customization via skills so that no character will fight the exact same way using the full action combat system the game is launching with.

On top of that, the game will also focus on Guild-driven conflicts between players fighting for control of the Elyon portal. Faction conflict and player driven wars are at the heart of the game as was also shown in the new trailer. Players will swear allegiance not only to their guild, but also to one of two factions; Ontari or Vulpin. 

The game has not received a release date for launch outside of Asia, but is scheduled to be serviced by Kakao Games as well for North American and European markets.
