About Shards Online
- Shards Online is breaking away from the modern MMO conventions of levels, classes and quest grinds. We are returning to living virtual worlds where stories emerge naturally as players explore the worlds laid out before them.
- Shards Online will launch with a complete game containing several official rule-sets. The default rule-set will be immersive with real consequences for death and areas with unrestricted player versus player combat.
- We are initially targeting the PC platform, and plans for a Mac and Linux launch are in the works. Shards Online will be distributed digitally and we are strongly considering using an established platform like Steam. When you purchase the game, you will be able to play on player run clusters and run a single ‘shard’ with no additional cost or subscription fees.
Ultimately, we aren't just creating a game that fosters a player community, instead, we are giving our players the tools to create their own in-game communities.
