Player Freedom Is Welcome
The game’s time frame takes place at the sunset of the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms before the Song dynasty. Focusing on the gameplay trailer, Everstone showed a hero swordsman exhibiting magnificent skills and abilities ranging from sword combat, stealth, archery, and walking on water. Early impressions compare the game to Assassins Creed and Ghost of Tsushima because of the similar open-world freedom and environment, including travel similarities.
Also, the trailer revealed the swordsman’s ability to yell at a bear, breathe fire, and get chased by a goose. Pay citizens for secrets and info. Use magic powers to steal items. The different game environments range based on climate and the elements. Players can become sick; however, they can learn skills as a doctor allowing self-healing and healing for NPCs and online players. Multiple jobs are available, allowing players to play however they like.
“Other than becoming a doctor, players can choose other occupations. For example, they can become an orator who uses the power of words to convince NPCs to follow their advice; they can become an architect who builds all kinds of imaginative buildings; they can become a bodyguard who protects players or NPCs from assassins; or they can become a ferryman who takes passengers on a tour of the river.”Everstone Studio Developers
