Early Access Upcoming Features
During the Early Access period participants will be able to influence the development of Linkrealms and provide Mythyn Interactive with invaluable feedback. Since the game is not complete yet, players can expect several new features and improvements to be released during Early Access. These include, but aren't limited to, two main fields: the expansion of the world with new biomes, dungeons and events, and the addition of new skills, with a focus on magic and crafting abilities.
SANDBOX MMORPG - CRAFT, HUNT, HARVEST, SELL
Gather resources through farming your own fields, raiding dungeons, and mining, then sell them to others or convert them into valuable items using tools and your own skills. Take a player dedicated to cultivating his estates and brewing magical concoctions, and another player who enjoys locating mineral veins, extracting ores and crafting fine armors. When the two meet or use each other's vendors, there are profits for all!
CLASSLESS GAMEPLAY - MIX AND MATCH ANY SKILL SETS
Regardless of your character's race, you will gain all skills as you use them, and enhance your abilities further by gathering the best tools and equipment. As you become more powerful, you will begin to specialize and develop your own unique mix of talents. Join a guild as swordsman and illusion specialist, or run solo and get rich as farmer or miner with some fire magic on the side. You'll be able to experiment and change your focus over time, so go for it!
LAND OWNERSHIP - A MAN'S HOME IS HIS CASTLE
The world of Linkrealms is divided into hundreds of realms. Claim yours and use it to build literally anything! Wall off your own fields, raise a guild hall for your friends and training zones for your pets, or just an awesome manor to inspire envy! You'll also be able to place vendors, set up switches and doors, traps, teleporters – and even monster spawners if you want to get a little more creative.
WATCH YOUR BACK! - OPEN DUNGEONS AND SMART CREATURES
The world of Linkrealms is full of events and dungeons that are open for anyone to enter. If you're a solo thief, think twice before sneaking up on a large raiding party while they fight the boss monster! The most impressive creatures use advanced AI, giving them the sense to avoid danger and work in teams. Your pets share the same technology, can be bred for specific traits and trained in a punish/reward fashion.
PVP & PVE - PICK A SERVER WITH THE RULES YOU LIKE
Some people like the old-school hardcore PVP rules, while others would rather not be surprised by assassins while using the out-house. Servers can vary not only in rule and skill sets, but may contain very different landscapes and dungeons. Fighting is a skill easily learned, but difficult to master-- Especially when other players are involved. There are many battle skills available, and what works against some may fail against others.
FREE TO PLAY - EQUITY AND FAIR COMPETITION
Create a new account, download the game and play for free - forever. All of the content is available to you with no restrictions. Using the in-game store helps supporting the development team, but nothing a player can purchase is going to make him suddenly powerful or give him an unfair advantage. Linkrealms welcomes all players to the community!
In what time/theme does the game take place?
While the game has a distinctly medieval/fantasy feel, it is not entirely so. To better facilitate individual personalities the graphics set is a little more varied than other strictly medieval-themed games, though it does and always will lean in that direction.
What exactly is a "Realm", why the name "Linkrealms"?
The world of Linkrealms is divided into connected areas called "realms". Each realm aside from public ones (such as NPC towns and dungeons) contains a portion of land which can be claimed by the players (one user = one realm). If a player owns a realm, he can customize it using the Realm Editor. A realm can include a home to store & display one's belongings, a garden for farming and livestock, or both. The Realm Editor comes with a very large library of graphics, covering multiple themes & styles that allow each player to create a truly unique environment.
Each realm is visible & available to other players whether the owner is logged in or not, 24 hours a day. Players & creatures can wander through the realm, and the owner's crops continue to grow. The maximum level of protection a player can set on his own realm depends on the server's ruleset (soft or hardcore PvP).
Is there a fee to pay to play?
Linkrealms will be free to download and to play when it reaches its final launch. During the Beta phase that is currently taking place before the official release it's possible to obtain access to the game by buying the game on Steam Early Access, by purchasing a Founder Pack or by verifying a Beta Key.
Is Linkrealms a "Pay-to-win" game?
Absolutely not! Mythyn Interactive will never sell premium items or services that create an imbalance between paying and non-paying users. Moreover, premium items available in the in–game store can always be purchased from other players as well.
Are PvP servers really hardcore?
Yes, they are. Our flexible rulesets system allows us to create new servers with very specific rules according to player demand. Hardcore servers include Open PvP and Full Loot, plus a few tweaks to game balancing to better fit the environment. Other parameters such as the possibility to bless equipment or additional power of hostile creatures can also be adjusted according to the community's wish!
Is it possible to transfer characters between servers?
No, it isn't, neither for free nor as a premium service. Characters created on a server stay on that server. This is not a technical limitation, but an intentional choice. We think of different servers as unique experiences, and the possibility of building up a character on a PvE world just to move it to an Open PvP one would greatly damage the overall experience of the hardcore server.
Is macroing / botting allowed on Linkrealms?
Macroing is allowed as long as it only involves gaining skill levels. For example, you can leave your character AFK being attacked by hostile creatures and use Battle Tactics, you can cast spells, and perform crafting actions. Any macroing action that involves looting and in general collecting items is instead strictly forbidden. Failing to abide by this rule will lead to severe punishments, incuding account suspensions and permanent bans for repeated misbehaviors.
What are the System Requirements?
Linkrealms is optimized to run also on outdated and low-end machines. The minimum system requirements are:
DirectX Version 8 or higher
200 megabytes of free ram
400 megabytes of HD space
32 mb or greater Video Card
While a broadband Internet connection is always helpful, the game can be played with a dial-up connection with no problems.
