In Granado Espada, you play as a new conquistador from Vespaniola aiming to conquer the new world. The game stands out from other MMORPGs by allowing you to control not one but three characters simultaneously in a single squad. This squad forms part of a larger ‘family’ that players can customize from a roster of characters.
One of the intriguing mechanics is the mercenary system. Players can add mercenaries to their family by completing various quests or purchasing contracts. These quests are challenging and often require strategic planning. This method is generally more cost-effective than buying from other players, as the in-game economy can make contract prices fluctuate significantly.
The game also introduces political parties into its universe with the option to align with either Royalists or Republicans. Depending on your faction, new types of missions open up, including faction wars and territorial control known as ‘colonial battles.’
Granado Espada’s character development is unusually intricate. Besides a character’s main level, there’s a “stand” system that allows you to specialize in different weapons and combat styles. This gives players the chance to be versatile in battles, being able to switch from offense to defense by merely changing their stance and weapon.
Another positive note is the game’s quest system. Unlike many MMOs, which often feature routine fetch quests, Granado Espada aims for a more narrative-driven experience. From defending city gates to clearing dungeons or even ascending to baronial status, the missions are varied and challenging.
Granado Espada features a pet system where each pet has its unique skills and benefits, such as automatically collecting loot or amplifying the team’s abilities. These pets can be acquired either by completing certain quests or by using the game’s premium currency. The pet system, combined with the ability to control three characters simultaneously, makes Granado Espada less time-intensive than many other MMORPGs.
Granado Espada is an MMORPG that offers a unique blend of historical and fantastical elements. Its multi-character control, intricate development systems, and engaging quests set it apart from the crowd.
