While browsing the MMORPG.com forums, I discovered that Mortal Online is now in Open Beta. Now this is a game that I have kept a bit of an eye on, as many players tout is as Darkfall with better graphics, superb crafting and even more freedom. I love Darkfall, so Mortal Online is very intriguing. I headed to the website, signed up and started the download. After a couple of hours, it finished and I began the install….
Only to find that the file package refused to install.
Not a good way to begin a game experience. After fiddling with it for a bit, I found a torrent for the installer on Pirate Bay or some such and restarted the download. This time the install went fine and I started it up. Here are my very early impressions of Mortal Online.
Initial Boot-up/Character Creation
The first thing I noticed when I got into Mortal Online was the fairly interesting character creation and the professionalism of the log-in and character selection screen. Darkfall has always felt “amateurish” in its initial presentation. Not so with Mortal Online. At first glance, it is all done and presented very well and professionally.
