Sevencore is a 3D sci-fi and fantasy themed action MMORPG by gPotato. Heavily mount oriented, players enter a warring world where a fight can break out literally anywhere. Battle on land, in mid-air, and by sea using various beast or mechanical based mounts. Unlike other F2P titles this game combines the best of RPG magic and fuses it with a dose of ultramodern flair. From dinosaurs to cyborg units there’s a lot going on in this game. Users step into the shoes of local recruit that must slowly move up the ranks. Participate in faction PvP battles against opposing guilds while riding magnificent fire-breathing dragons. Raid treacherous dungeons with your friends or bring along a pet to assist in monster boss fights. Complete challenging quests, master powerful skills, and even run for election. In this futuristic role playing game choose from one of the three races at odds and fight for your nation’s right to rule.
Giant Bugs to Burgers, the Gameplay
The game begins with a player’s character flying over their region’s training grounds in a futuristic-looking helicopter. The awe-inspiring aerial view of the world below is equally impressive as it is a cinematic introduction to the world of Sevencore. Once the machine has landed, heroes begin their journey by tackling various NPC quests. There’s not much of a storyline or NPC dialogue included in the questing process. Many of the tasks are short and to the point. Relay messages from one non-player character to another, hunt down monsters to assist locals, or gather various ingredients located deep in the unexplored wilderness. There’s a wide variety of prehistoric dinosaurs, enormous bugs, dragons, and other dangerous creatures roaming the land. During hunting quests players can use a very convenient target select feature by pressing the tab key. It’s a great tool for grinding or quickly taking out multiple monsters simultaneously. Depending on a hero’s class players can executer various animated spells or moves. There’s an auto skill feature that gives characters a new learned skill upon leveling up. The drops are also somewhat unique. Players receive coins, XP, and often hamburgers as a reward. Burgers are a consumable item in the game that restores health and sodas which are also available replenishes a character’s mana. It’s an interesting change from the traditional RPG method of allocating red and blue potions. Despite the meager drops experience is plentiful in the game. Much like Allods Online heroes gain XP relatively fast. In between questing players can participate in dungeon raids as well. Slaying mobs of creatures for bigger drops and experience is a nice addition to the gameplay but it can still feel repetitive at times.
Beasts & Mechanical Mounts, Oh My!
Sevencore features an extensive and in-depth mounts system that’s definitely worthy of praise. Once a player reaches level 10 they’ll receive their first mount capable of travel via land, air, or sea. Mounts can be used for travel, combat, or both. They also vary from pets raised from creature eggs to manufactured wonders. Beasts like the monster bugs, rhinos, turtles, flying moths, and even dragons can be acquired through boss fights or as a drop reward during a dungeon raids. Pets can be summoned to fight next to their master or merged together with the hero to unleash special powers and stat boosts during battle. As mounts are individually leveled up through melees they unlock new skills. Combat mounts are either enriched in attack or defense skills. Although pets are capable of learning various skills to assist a hero on the battlefield their loyalty can be fleeting. With each devastating blow they take on their master’s behalf they lose respect for him. When a pet’s respect level falls too low they quit fighting. Players have to keep their pet respect levels high by feeding them. Similar to Eve Online the game stays true to its sci-fi theme with mechanical mounts as well. They require special kits to resurrect them after being defeated. Instead of food like common pets they need fuel to keep them going on arduous challenges or battles.
Dragon PvP Battles
One of the best features in the game is the ability for heroes to participate in combat while riding mounts on land, flying in the air, or on water. Guild based PvP wars can take place when qualifying factions sign a war pact with a rival faction. These weekly battles allow teams to fight for prestige and control over available territories. High level players can face off against others during these intense melees in the air riding dragon mounts. Soar over cliffs casting spells while in flight or knock opponents off high platforms and watch them tumble to their death. It’s quite impressive. Each guild can only allow 20 of their members into the arena to fight per war. The political system in Sevencore allows guilds to vote and choose a governor to represent their sect and run for president. The lucky player elected as president has the power to impose taxes, special policies, and rule the whole continent. There are also regular arena style PvP battles that heroes can participate in also. Teams are equally divided based on a player’s level. In the Tillau battle zone players must seize or defend the opposing team’s flags. The first team to snag two of their enemies’ flags wins. In the Crimson Plateau battlefield teams go head to head in an intense Deathmatch. The first team with the most kills will be crowned victorious. Players with higher gear and skilled mounts have a significant advantage during combat.
Turns for Gear
The customization options in Sevencore are decent but could use some improvement. Although players have control in customizing the appearance of their character, weapons and gear are limited. There are primarily only six core weapons to choose from. Depending on a character’s class player’s can equip their hero with the Great Twin Swords, Blade, Duel Guns, Launcher, Wand, or Staff. Each of these weapons can be upgraded using a special soulite stone for higher stats. Gear mostly comes in the form of generic leather pants, jackets, rings, belts, capes, robes, shoes, and armor. As player’s advance in the game they can pick up crafting professions and make some of their own equipment through gathering supplies but it’s a long tedious process. Crafting for example, allows heroes to create a Bronze Twin Blade and higher material quality armor. Leatherworker, seamstress, and other professions are available for mastery once a player reaches level 20 or higher. There’s also a turns systems that enables players to receive a free item every hour. These freebies are a welcomed site especially since gear is scarce during monster drops. In the item shop users can purchase blessed protection scrolls, portable auction houses to sell their unwanted goods, elixirs, stat boosts, and special mounts.
Final Verdict: Good
Overall Sevencore is a solid sci-fi fantasy themed MMO. Players really get to have fun as they level up their characters and equip more advanced forms of mounts to use in battle. Anyone who enjoys riding action MMORPGs or games like C9 will love what this latest title from gPotato has to offer. Tackle challenging quests, slay hordes of menacing Raptors, and raid dungeons with your friends. There’s even a political system that enables users to control regions as the country’s reigning president. If the ability to participate in guild based PvP wars fighting in mid-air on Dragons isn’t enough to tempt you to play nothing else will. The unusual combination of ancient and modern adds an interesting twist on a tired RPG genre. It’s definitely worth checking out.
