February Launch INFO

SQUARE ENIX AND ANKAMA ANNOUNCE OFFICIAL LAUNCH DATE, MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FEE AND ONLINE STORE FOR 'WAKFU®'

Tactical MMORPG Will Make Worldwide Debut in February 2012; Premium Content Available for Monthly Subscription Fee and Microtransaction–Based Online Store Will Open at Launch



LOS ANGELES (October 28, 2011) — Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas and ANKAMA, an independent digital creation group and developer, today announced that their upcoming tactical massively multiplayer online role–playing game (MMORPG), WAKFU®, will be launching worldwide in February 2012. WAKFU will launch as a free download from the official site at www.wakfu.com/na and include with it a large amount of gameplay content to experience at no cost. In addition, a monthly subscription fee of $6.00 will give players access to premium content, and a microtransaction–based store will allow users to purchase cosmetic items.

"WAKFU's deep political and combat system combined with an ever–changing ecosystem delivers an exceptional MMORPG unlike any other product in its category," said Mona Hamilton, vice president of marketing for Square Enix. "The team at Ankama created a unique, fun and entertaining online game and we believe a monthly subscription fee and online store makes for a rewarding experience all players can enjoy."

With up to 14 distinct, completely customizable character classes to select from and a variety of missions and turn–based combat to engage in, WAKFU takes place in a vibrant and immersive anime art style world where players' choices are paramount and actions directly impact a continuously evolving ecosystem. Featuring a rich political system, players can defend their nation against enemy attacks, conquer new territories, vote, elect government officials and even run for governor!

Did you get in Shu? I'm on the Amakna Nation; this game is seriously addicting, i love how the players are in control of the Ecosystem (although the opposing nation apparently is having problems with "Eco Terrorism" lulz)

I just hope they put some more work into the in-game knowledge resource, as of right now you're sort of thrown into the world without a paddle; you have to pretty much discovery things on your own with the exception of the starting zone which has a decently solid tutorial walk-through.

I played Dofus off and on for a good 2-3 years. It had issues, but was fun if you could find decent people to party with.

My biggest gripe was the huge amounts of RMT spamming and bots. Also Dofus seemed to attract a younger demographic so there was lots of immaturity.

Wouldn't mind trying Wakfu when it's open beta but hopefully it won't be full of 12 year olds who can't type properly.

I'm downloading this game right now so I'll be playing anytime soon. As Shu said, looks good for casual gaming.
It reminds me of disgaea and luminous arc...hopefully it will be at least as good as them.

I was just looking around the offcial website and found out they r making an animated series based on wakfu. The first 2 episodes will be streamed online soon (doesnt say when its gonna happen). Now im liking this game even more ^^

Edit: I started playing the game (ign: kawainu) and there is something that has been bothering me since the beginning... The whole economy is managed by players (which means there isnt a single merchant npc...) but I havent seen anybody selling potions...
Beebo, have u found any healing potion or at least a way to craft them? It is possible to craft bread and food but they can only be used outside battles (at least thats what the book says)

Edit 2:The game sucks fuming
Its impossible to play without a party after a certain level since all monsters are in groups of 3 or more and you just cant defeat them all without healing items and the help of some party members. Asking for a party never works, its impossible to heal urself during battle (unless u have a healing skill) and if that wasnt bad enough, in certain level ranges, the monsters u should be killing are in super crowded areas with 50 players/1 monster group which means u actually have to search for monster groups and run towards them before some party takes them from u.

Btw, did I mention u have to literally craft ur money? Apparently, its legal to make ur own money in the game xD
