Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is a is a role-play massive multiplayer game (MMORPG) created by Sigil Games Online, and now developed by Sony Online Entertainment
The universe: Vanguard takes place in a medieval fantasy world composed of Elves, Dwarfs, monsters, warriors and all the ingredients that make up a universe of this kind. The playable races are Humans (with different characteristics depending on whether the tribes belong to Thestran, Varanjar, Kojani, Qaliathari, Morbedi or Varanthari), Elf (large Elves, woods Elves, Semi-Elves or black Elves) the Hobbits, Dwarfs, Giants, Vulmans (a species of wolf-man), goblins, orcs, Raki (fox-man), gnomes and Kurashasa (lion-man).
The map consists of three continents of gigantic size. Testar is characterized by its large forests and mountain ranges. Kojo shows an Asian type of terrain, while Qualia is a typical desert plain with some mountain area.
Thanks to the powerful editor of this video game, you will have the ability to customize the appearance of your character. Depending on the breed, to which he belongs, you will begin heading in a particular continent of Telon.
As we move forward in the game, Vanguard is revealed as a unique video game that offers much more than it seems. It is intended to be played in teams: following the roads on your own is just synonymous to suicide. Telon is a persistent world, and it is possible to find out that the enemies, whom we must kill, have already been killed by other players. Among the new features, there is a striking system of diplomacy: thanks to it, you will favour certain factions or improve your image in front of the players controlled by the computer.
Vanguard is perhaps the first video game in which we can buy and sell houses between players. There are three types of models: houses, shops and workshops. Any other player passing through the area can view and interact with your dwelling.
Ultimately, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is an entertaining game, and the proposed contributions to the genre are interesting and should be taken into account in future productions.
