Gran Saga introduces us to an epic adventure that spans continents, each meticulously crafted to resonate with fantasy traditions. Players step into the shoes of knights, choosing among four initial characters. The core quest is a familiar yet engaging one—save the kingdom from a curse cast by a menacing dragon.
One of the unique aspects of this game is the Grand Weapon system. With 20 different types of weapons announced so far, the game aims to offer a variety of combat experiences. It’s not just about hacking and slashing; each weapon is integrated into the storyline and has its own abilities and lore.
The developers have hinted at more complex mechanics involving “souls,” represented in-game as crystals. While it’s not entirely clear yet, these souls appear to add an extra layer of complexity to the game. They can potentially be instilled into ordinary weapons to enhance them or even be summoned as companions, offering a multifaceted gameplay experience.
Gran Saga is designed using Unreal Engine 4, which allows for an immersive graphical experience. The world is vivid and alive, filled with detailed environments and eye-popping effects that do justice to its fantasy theme. Characters and enemies alike are well-designed, and the in-game physics add a layer of realism.
Gran Saga seems poised to become a major player in the anime MMORPG genre, with its attention to storytelling, in-depth combat system, and striking visuals. The only downside is the current lack of information on certain gameplay elements, like the role of “souls.” Regardless, Gran Saga is shaping up to be an expansive and exciting fantasy world worth diving into.
