Game Features Overview

By xarfox @ August 10, 2011 at 12:30pm



What makes RaiderZ an MMO worth playing?  What makes the action in RaiderZ stand out from all the other Action MMORPGs that are flooding the market?  Let's dive into the main gameplay features and find out why RaiderZ is worth your time and bandwidth.


Real-Time Action Combat

Combat in RaiderZ is unlike most traditional MMORPGs.  You can't simple select a target and then faceroll on your keyboard to win.  You'll be required to dodge, block, parry, and combo your way to victory.  Additionally spell casting require that you actually have line of sight with whatever you're casting upon.  No more hiding in the corner and healing while facing a wall, no more casting fireballs through trees and terrain.  Positioning and leveraging your surroundings will be king in the world of RaiderZ.


Spell Casting in RaiderZ


Breakable Monster System

See a giant ogre with a bag of logs on his back?  Break open his satchel and start wielding the logs like giant totem poles against him.  Fighting a dragon with an enormous horn on his head?  Crack it off with a mace and ram his own horn into his chest.  Even smaller monsters may drop weapons or have their armor break, allowing you to wield their own weapons against them, or even gain temporary buffs.


Grappling System

The bosses in most other MMOs are simply large monsters with gigantic health pools.  We think that just because you're fighting a boss for 15 minutes instead of 15 seconds does not warrant an "epic encounter" title.  Utilizing the latest Nvidia PhysX drivers, RaiderZ allows for players to interact with bosses in completely new ways.  You're going to get tossed around, eaten alive, ground into the pavement, and a whole lot more.


Conquest Crafting

As you run around the game world hunting down the monstrous denizens of Rendel, you'll tear these creatures apart and find various crafting materials.  Through the collecting of these various monster artifacts and remains, you'll be able to craft weapons and gear.  Finding that rare spider boss out in the wild suddenly becomes a big deal when he drops a specific type of spider silk that's used in crafting gear that you need.

These are only a few of the major features in RaiderZ.  Keep an eye out on this blog for future posts and developer diaries that will go more in-depth on the various features of RaiderZ, as well as more behind the scenes information about development, and our upcoming Closed Beta.

  • guts3 @ Mar 6th, 2012 12:56PM

    if potions and clerics r not really needed, then it will be just as good as rumble fighter.

  • maukin @ Oct 14th, 2011 6:34PM

    I'm just worried that they will build a massive hype and it'll just let everyone down because it wasn't or isn't as good as expected

  • feldslasher @ Oct 14th, 2011 11:01AM

    i just hope it wont be like most of the online games and u can use ur credit card or whatever to buy ur way to the top :/.

  • durahan11111 @ Oct 11th, 2011 7:14PM

  • txwjyeej @ Oct 2nd, 2011 5:40PM

    let's all just be patient, wait for the real thing to release and then give our remarks. I mean it looks bad-ass enough already and legitimate so why the remarks? We'll show what we can do over here, and Japan can show what they can do :D it's a WIN WIN for us all :D

  • yellowskier @ Oct 2nd, 2011 4:33PM

    This makes me mad, but happy because they copied SOOOOOOOOOOOO much from monster hunter its not even funny. However, monster hunter is an awesome game and if it would be awesome on the computer. Monster hunter tri online is so fun but has a lot of connection errors

  • relicfrost

  • durahan11111

  • gabotheplaya1 @ Sep 28th, 2011 1:15AM

    Monster Hunter has an MMO of its own, but its Japan exclusive and no translation/English patch/English server in sight. they say its because it won't make money it they made it for everyone... now they block all non-Japanese players. LETS SHOW THEM HOW WE ROLL! i can't wait for this!

  • alucardpt @ Sep 19th, 2011 8:22PM

    Rip off Monster Hunter, but like I care right? I mean this one is free, and seems fun lets see how it ends!

  • illiadona @ Sep 19th, 2011 8:17PM

  • tsuguardtenchi

  • sourhead761 @ Sep 12th, 2011 7:07PM

  • qeleomisp @ Sep 11th, 2011 12:10PM

    We are looking forward!

  • elly @ Sep 8th, 2011 1:41AM

    Signed up for Beta and looking forward to finding out if i get into it :)

  • iamdboyleon @ Sep 7th, 2011 12:16PM

    Most def signing up for closed beta. MH was one of my favorite all time games, and the way teh multiplayer worked made it difficult to feel that satifaction of showing off all your hard work. Hopefully this will fill in that void i felt with MH! Sounds like an amazing MMO experience and please consider me for closed beta :))))))
