Revelation Online – An upcoming blockbuster?

Blockbuster MMORPG – We have seen a few MMORPGs this year already but today we got our hands on one of those games that might actually cause some uproar among its free to play competitors. We played Revelation Online, a brand new MMORPG that just hit the open beta status. Read our review and find out what all the fuss is about.

Game Concept

As with any given MMORPG, things aren’t that different at the beginning of Revelation Online. While the whole world is in peril, you will first have to learn how to take care of yourself during the first few levels of the game. Helping the locals, grinding a few lesser evils and all the other goodness of early MMORPG gameplay await. Step by step you will eventually become stronger, tackle harder missions and will rise in ranks. With each level you receive new abilities, gear and other resources that you can spend into the development of your character in order to overpower even the strongest of foes.

Six playable classes:

In terms of playable classes, Revelation Online provides a pretty solid lineup, even for seasoned MMORPG veterans. As for now you get to choose between Gunslinger, Blademaster, Spiritshaper, Vanguard, Swordmage and Occultist. Each of these classes obviously brings its unique set of skill and abilities, where some of those are absolutely crazy. The Swordmage for example, an interesting class in itself, can summon an ethereal blade and simply surfs on it through the enemies ranks – ride in style. At any rate, the skills and abilities look pretty good and the overall visual presentation of this game is pretty much on spot, especially for a free to play title.


In case you are one of those players that loves player versus player interaction, you will definitely have a lot to like in Revelation Online.  Aside from broad open world pvp and arena battles, Revelation Online even takes it into the sky. Once your character has been upgraded with special wings, you can even fight your foes between the clouds and put your aerial combat skills to the test. Three different target systems, ranging from lock-on mode, to click-to-move, to Free Aiming, provide enough opportunities for everyone to play the game in his or her preferred way.

An equally rich PvE experience:

Thankfully Revelation Online doesn’t lack an equally good PvE experience. The world is absolutely massive and with the aid of flying mounts and your wings, you are able to explore every nook and cranny of this world. Furthermore there are your dungeons, raids and all the other good things that bring people from all over the world together in order to achieve common goals. We spent hours in this game but even now we have barely seen a sliver of what the world has to offer. In this regard we can guarantee that there will always be something to see or to explore for at least a few months of gametime.

The Bottom Line

Revelation Online is simply a pretty good MMORPG. The graphics are spot-on, the animations and skill concepts are not only innovative, but also pretty impressive and especially on higher levels your new abilities do pack a serious punch. In this regard Revelation Online makes a strong point for itself, especially when compared to similar free to play titles. As for fans of PvE and PvP content, the game will cater to your needs and even more. Sure, while you may not be a fan of open world PvP, the game provides countless opportunities for cooperative gameplay around every corner. Our final verdict is that this game is definitely promising, even though it is currently in its open beta, being polished as these lines are written. Give it a try, you most likely won’t regret it.
