challenges. Combining this with an easy-to-learn combat system, players will be
prepared to stand against the most powerful foes and hordes of enemies.

technical and design barriers common in MMORPGs, allowing players to more easily
share their adventures in the game with anyone, regardless of rank or skill

“What we’re showing at E3 will
genuinely demonstrate our vision for the future of MMO gaming,” said Brown.
“We’re creating beautiful, sweeping landscapes with epic conflict that deliver
fun in a new way, every day.”
