'Mortal Online 2' Gets Final Early Access/Beta Update, Full Launch Later This Month - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 10, 2022 @ 12:13 a.m. PST

Mortal Online 2 is a first person MMORPG where you get to explore a massive sandbox world with full PvP and loot.

Mortal Online 2 has no classes or levels instead it features a open ended skill system where the player gains points in skills simply by using them.

The game also moves away from Mortal Online 1's 4 character slots and now has a one character per account maximum. This change comes with a upgraded skill-system that aims to make every character more versatile moving away from Mortal Online 1's very specific character roles. Mortal Online 2 features a massive list of 600+ skills to learn. Most of these skills are learned and leveled up by simply using them in the game and the player can spend points in any skills he/she wishes to learn creating a complex web of possible combinations.

Mortal Online 2 also expands on Mortal Online's beloved open crafting systems that gives players full control over what they create. Players crafting weapons for example do this by choosing the blade or head of the weapon, a handle type and what materials these two parts are made out of. This creates a almost infinite amount of weapons, armors, bows and arrows for the players to craft. Almost all of the equipment in Mortal Online 2 is created by players and then sold to other players. Our celebrated crafting-system gives all the power to the crafter who can decide every part in whatever he/she is crafting creating a mind blowing amount of possible combinations. This way crafters can be known worldwide for their secret and powerful equipment.

The latest patch contains the new player journal system to log your discoveries, a new craftable armor style "Rugged Garments", new creatures and a boss to find (or fear), the first wave of house decorations so you can begin customizing your homes and of course the usual batch of squashed bugs and a visit from the polish fairy.

Known Issues

  • Certain decorations can be placed partially into walls in certain situations.
  • Some decorations may flag parts of the house as being occupied by them incorrectly, instead of correctly preventing decorations from taking up the same space as them.
  • The medium house had to be tweaked in order to support decorations. This resulted in it being slightly shifted when placed into the world. This will also affect existing medium houses and can result in future upgrades failing.
  • House upgrades can sometimes fail despite being placed in a valid location.
