What is Mortal Online 2?

An indie MMORPG we’ve been keeping a close eye on: check out our updates on the latest patches for the game’s Housing Update and Fishing Update.

Touted as a next generation, first-person, persistent sandbox MMORPG set in a fantasy world with a focus on immersion and deep game systems, Mortal Online 2 caters to players of all shapes, sizes, and playstyles. Become a legendary crafter whose goods are traded across the globe. Study the art of combat and become a famous warrior. Explore areas never seen by other players. This is a world where your individual reputation is everything. No matter what path you decide to take, people will recognize you by the impact you’ve made on the world.

Mortal Online 2 is a persistent world, with no progress wipes or resets. Every player action becomes a part of the world’s shared history, and players are never truly free from danger. There are no specific PvP or safe zones (apart from the starting zone of Haven), only an open, realistic world where you are free to choose your own path. Experience true, real-time combat where outcomes are decided by skill rather than levels or gear. Build your own house, create a guild, construct a keep and forge an empire. With enough power, violence, or diplomacy, you and your allies may rule an entire nation.

Want to start your journey in the world of Nave? Mortal Online 2 is available to purchase through Steam today with instant access to the Closed Beta granted to new players so that you can settle in before launch on January 25th.
