Artix Entertainment announced that AdventureQuest 3D will launch in open beta in October. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game will allow users to complete quests, explore dungeons and more on iOS, Android, PC and Mac.
AdventureQuest 3D is officially a reboot of the original AdventureQuest, a 2-D flash role-playing game released in 2002. In AdventureQuest 3D, users will be able to complete quests in a variety of areas within the world, such as the home city of Battleon, a spooky forest and so on. While the game will have an overall storyline to experience, each main environment will also have its own storyline to complete.
As users explore environments, they’ll be able to battle enemies to complete quests and gather loot. Players will be able to select a starting class for their characters, and each class will have special abilities that players will be able to activate during battles. In addition, users will able to change their class when they’re outside of battle.
When the open beta launches next month, users will be able to choose from three different classes: Warrior, Mage and Rogue. However, in a recent interview with SocialTimes, Adam Bohn, president at Artix Entertainment, said the goal was to eventually offer more than 60 different classes for players to unlock and choose from.
As users progress, their characters will level up and become stronger. Users will also be able to collect or purchase better gear and weapons for their heroes over time.
To help users easily find their friends, the game will include a Summon system, which will allow users to instantly teleport to their friends’ locations by typing generated summon words. Specifically, a user will be able to share a summon word with their friends, and when these friends type the word, they will instantly teleport to the original user’s location.
Finally, Bohn said the team plans to add content updates to the game every week after launch. For instance, an upcoming Halloween event called Mogloween will allow users to complete a special Mogloween Haunted House dungeon.
In a statement to SocialTimes, Bohn commented:
We are equal parts excited and terrified to release AdventureQuest 3D’s open beta on Steam, Apple and Android devices so everyone can play this October!
While Adventure Quest 3D will be free to download and play, users have the option to purchase a special Guardian Package for $19.99, or a Dragon Guardian Package for $49.99. Both packages include access to the Guardian character class and a special Guardian Tower location, among other items. The Dragon Guardian Package also includes extra items, like an exclusive dragon armor set.
