Seamless Open World Sandbox

The world of Agon is a massive, seamless open-world sandbox MMO with no instances, spanning 46 kilometers diagonally and 33 kilometers across.

Handcrafted World of Agon:

A River Runs Near the Jungle
  • The world of Agon contains a massive mainland where the six unique races can be found. Each has a capital city along with a few smaller cities that you can choose to live out of. Players can decide to make their home in one of the many player cities and hamlets located here as well.
  • Four subcontinents can be reached by boat (or a long swim!) around the outsides of Agon - the icy lands of Niflheim, the humid jungles of Yssam, the desert wastes of Rubaiyat and the scorched earths of Cairn. These diverse lands house many player cities, hamlets, and villages along with difficult monsters and enemies to seek out.
  • Find ruined castles, search for treasure chests in hidden dungeons, stand your ground against vile monsters, search for vacant homes in player villages or buy items off their player vendors, and live in a handcrafted, seamless open world!

Outsmart and outplay your enemies with better team coordination, by landing more hits or making sure to keep your allies on their feet. Do you have what it takes to make a name for yourself on the battlefield?

With no classes or character levels, players raise their offensive skills and stats through in-game actions and by using spell scrolls. Live the lifestyle of your chosing, whether that is a skilled mercenary, renowned crafter, or feared politician. In this sandbox MMO, the choice is yours for the taking in a world that leaves it up to the player.

The Foundation of Player Choice and Freedom:

Ork Relaxing On The Waters Edge
  • You have access to over 200 skills and spells that raise in power when you use them. There are no limitations or restrictions, instead your characters' strengths are based solely on your actions. Are you ready to choose your path?

  • Climb to the top of the mountains, explore the beautiful cities of Agon, enter in the deepest and darkest dungeons, sail to remote islands, ride through lava rivers and sand deserts. You can travel everywhere the eye can see, the freedom is yours in our open world sandbox MMORPG.

Risk vs Reward

One of our foundations is the principle of Risk vs Reward. Players who fall victim to other characters or monsters leave behind their tombstone, along with all of the items that they had on them, for other players to take.

If It’s Not In Your Bank It’s Not Safe:

Eyes On The Prize
  • No place in the world of Agon is safe, as players can attack others anywhere in the world.
  • When characters die, they leave behind a tombstone containing all of their armor, weapons and other valuables that they had on their person at the time of death. These items are free for the taking by anyone, whether or not you were the reason for their demise.
  • Seek valuable rewards from sought after monsters or in popular dungeons, but in the world of Agon every possible reward holds it’s own risk. Sometimes that risk may outweigh the reward, so make sure you choose wisely!

Player Driven Economy

Darkfall: Rise of Agon’s economy is driven by the players, where supply and demand control the price of goods on the market. Every weapon and piece of armor can be crafted by those who seek to hone their skills in crafting, along with potions, mounts, ships, and even cities. Trade your wares with others, partake in trade routes across the world, or become your alliance’s most valuable crafter.

Making a Name for Yourself on the Market:

Diversity in Weapons and Armor
  • Equip a harvesting tool and gather resources from trees, rocks, iron nodes, and bushes you find out in the world or from nodes found in player cities.
  • Acquire enchanting materials and resources from monsters, treasure chests, and even trade routes and use them to make new weapons, armor and many other types of items found in game.
  • Supply your friends, allies and even enemies high-end crafted items or valuable resources and make a living as a crafter, enchanter or even trader.

Empire Building and Politics

The world of Agon is heavily dictated by the player's freedom to build empires and form powerful alliances or make terrible enemies. Each guild has the ability to claim a player city, which can be found in numerous places around Agon. If the player city is already owned by another guild, you can become allies with them and utilize their city and resources. If not, you can always declare war and siege the city. Conquering land in Agon is important because the resources and strategic locations of these cities will make your guild prosperous and powerful. Beware of powerful enemies who may want to take your land, or treacherous allies who might backstab you and side with the enemy.
