Ryzom Online is a open source Free to Play, science Fantasy, Role Playing MMO Game [MMORPG].
Ryzom is set more than 3.000 years into
the future, on a living, evolving virtual world - beautiful Atys,
where after creating your own personal avatar you will guide it
through this strange fantastic planet to uncover its mysteries.
The game boasts a unique
science-fantasy setting, a distinctive and artistic visual style and
a sophisticated plot based upon the conflict of two mysterious
supernatural powers. The storyline was awarded "Mmorpg.com Best
Story" award. Gameplay is highly adaptive to your personal
preferences and the actions/skills system is remarkably unique,
sophisticated and profound.
Ryzom characters are unusual in that
they are not bound to a class. That means you don't have to choose
between being a warrior, a mage, a harvester or a crafter. You can
improve your skills in all these classes with only one character; you
do not need to focus on one path. For example, you can, at your
leisure, either train your pike handling, put on your magic
amplifiers to heal or cast offensive spells, pick up your pickaxe and
harvest materials, or go into crafting a new armor or weapon.
A powerful A.I. system allows for a
realistic wildlife behavior: carnivores attack herbivorous herds,
realistic and dynamic animal motions make them lively, sometimes
endearing, other times worrisome. There are also mass migrations on
season changes and different behavior for different species. Take
your time to sit and observe the life around you, it's an
unforgettable view. But be careful of predators!
Opensource - Ryzom is one of only a few
commercial-grade MMORPGs that are fully open source: client, server,
tools, and media. Being open source means that Ryzom draws on a
vibrant community providing fixes and functionality above and beyond
that of what the team can provide. It offers players a unique
opportunity to become involved in the development of the game.
