Wakfu is a free-to-play tactical MMO by the same creators of Dofus. This sequel is set 1,000 years after the Age of Dofus in the World of Twelve. Fans of the original game will notice some familiar characters and environments but a lot of drastic changes as well. Players step into the role of an awaken hero’s spirit reincarnated and sent back to rescue a land in turmoil. Each hero must rebuild their chosen nation and form valuable allies within.
