What is Throne and Liberty? 

Throne and Liberty (also known as TL) is the newest addition in the MMORPG genre. It is developed by the company NCSOFT which is stationed in South Korea, and it partnered up with Amazon Games for its world-wide release. The game itself reminds of a mix of Final Fantasy and Elden Ring, but it also holds a dose of Guild Wars in it. It has stunning visualization, amazing fights, Character movement, Creature design as well as a huge World that is to be explored.

It takes place in the fantasy world of Solisium, where the harsh landscape, mountains, hills and various rocky deserts are going to prove challenging and will take some adapting to. However, there are various other plains and fields, as well as Dungeons for you to explore.

What’s important to note is that this game has been in development since 2011. It was initially supposed to be the sequel to the Lineage game and be a part of it’s series – it’s title was supposed to be Lineage Eternal. Although, as we already mentioned due to various delays and NCSOFT not knowing whether or not it wants to go with this or make a whole new project, after years of testing and debating, we ended up getting “Project TL” at the start of 2017.

Since 2017, it was announced that the game will get a new Game Director and that it will shift from the old engine that was used for Guild Wars to Unreal Engine 4, and that’s when the Project TL officially started.

Throne and Liberty Storyline

There is not much that is known regarding the Story in Throne and Liberty, the Storyline is meant to unfold as you start playing. However, what we do know is that it revolves around “The Star of Sylaveth”. It was said that this Star is actually a Sealed Titan Stone which contains – Sylaveth, Goddess of Destruction.

This magical star of destruction was shattered into pieces all across the World and those who were born with it’s fragments are called the Star Children. In 1192, during an age of conflict, the Arkeum Legion Commander Kazar sought to use the power of the star fragments as a tool for war. He then sent out the Witch Calanthia to a remote Island where the Wizard Yann Junath hid the Star Children.

When you make your Character, it is expected of you to roam around the vast world of Solisium and seek out fragments of the Star of Sylaveth in order to harness absolute power with the goal being the defeat Kazar, the Wraith of COnquest. You and those in your trusted Guild strategically determine how to achieve vicotry against both Kazar’s armies as well as other Guilds!

Main In-game Characters

There is a variety of characters that are quite important to the Story. Obviously, the main ones worthy of mention aside from You (the Player), are split into two Groups, the good and bad:

Good In-game Characters:

  • Yann Junath – He dropped out of the magic academy after being outraged at the evil deeds of the Arkeum Legion. He committed himself to the Resistance and is looking after the orphans who lost their parents in the wars.
  • Clay Cartair – the “Harry Potter” of the game, is an intellectually curious Wizard that is driven by a sense of purpose and whos mission is to protect the children of the stars from the evils of Kazar.
  • Benny – is a man with shrewd judgment and resolute deposition that serves as a sentry and bookkeeper for military supplies. He joined the Resistance to make a difference.
  • Lottie – is a woman that works as an instructor for the Resistance. She offers mechanical maintenance, sufficient technical skill as well as knowledge to be considered a magic engineer.
  • Captain Da Vinci – a true Commander and a loyal servant that is devoted to his King and his men. However, things might not be as they seem. The Captain feels the coercive force of evil dominating the world and it could very well tempt him to switch sides.

Bad In-game Characters:

  • Kazar – the leader of the Arkeum Legion and the incarnation of pure evil with hopes of conquering the world through complete domination and destruction.
  • Calanthia – a Witch who once destroyed the Island where the children were held. She did this with the Arkeum Legion and she’s under Kazar’s command. Her loyalty resides with Kazar and the goal to pursue Sylaveth’s star fragments to gain absolute power.

Most notable Thunder and Liberty Regions

Aside from the variety of Zones in the Game, there are a few regions that deserve special attention. Those are:

  • Kastleton – a vibrant city with merchants ready to sell or trade, residents happy to offer information and resistance soldiers protecting the peace.
  • Carmine Forest – it belongs to the caretaker of spiders, Morokai the Turncoat. While exploring this region you will have to be careful, as he has leeched the very vitality from the forest, and lurks there with spiders and lust for eternal life.
  • Titanreach Ruins – these ruins are all that remains of a temple where colossal ancient being were created. However, if you dare to look close enough, you will find that everything is not as it seems.
  • Monolith waste-lands – the cursed rains contaminated the water, and created the Monolith Wastelands which resulted in a desert populated with Sand Cobras and carnivorous plants. Thread carefully while in this region!
  • Stonegard Castle – rests on a hillside, it was hewn down by thousands of stonemasons in Northwestern Central Stonegard. The hillside contains a complex maze of caves filled with basilisk nests and mandrakes. The masons that explored these caves never returned.
  • Sanctum of Desire – is a Dungeon where you must defeat the four altars that represent Flame, Tsunami, Typhoon and Earthquake. Once you’ve done this, you will discover the ultimate Boss.
  • Lizard Island – is the home of the Lizard Tribe. This island has many poisonous flowers growing on it and the Lizards consume them to gain resistance. The North region features the Lake of Regeneration, while the South is home to the Crater of Death and the Lizard Tribe.

Throne and Liberty – Release Date

Throne and Liberty was set to release on May 2nd, 2023. However, there were certain delays again and it ended up being released on December 7th, 2023 for South Korea. With Amazon Games being it’s world-wide connection it is yet uncertain of when the game will be released for everyone else.

So far there were no announcements about the exact release dates for regions, but the game is expected to go global at some point in 2024. The developers are using the Korea launch as further testing and making sure to meet the high expectations of all the Players in the World!

The things that are note worthy are that the Game’s public release in Korea has given a great deal of feedback and date, it was also stated in the NCSOFT’s Confidential Technical Test. This hopefully means that we’re on track to see a specified release window sometime soon.

Crossplay and Cross Platform 

Another thing that is quite important is that the game will be playable on multiple platforms, as the majority of game developers and companies fight for the market, it is imperative for them to provide the Game on as many devices and pick the Players up wherever they can. With this in mind, NCSOFT has made the game playable on:

  • PS5
  • Xbox Series X|S
  • PC

Regardless on which platform you are playing on the Crossplay aspect will allow you to interact and play together with everyone. Players using various consoles and PCs will no longer be restricted by platform limitations, allowing friends and gamers from different platforms to come together. This inclusive approach to gaming is a step forward in bridging the gap between different gaming communities.

Is Throne and Liberty Free-to-Play?

There was no mention of a price when it comes to Throne and Liberty. However, it is expected that it will be Free-to-Play, with the addition of microtransaction, similar to Path of Exile. You will be able to download and play the game for FREE, but you will be able to purchase in-game items such as premium currency, in-game items etc.

Throne and Liberty Gameplay Features

Throne and liberty graphics

Throne and Liberty is definitely one of those MMO’s that is trying to live up to the expectations of the modern age in terms of excitement, graphics and gameplay. What we are certain of is that none of those will be lacking with this newest addition to the MMORPG family. This high-budget game will definitely offer formidable changes to the way Players perceive MMO’s.

It will provide you with a captivating gaming adventure that has a compelling story, lively characters, and a world that changes based on what you decide. The game mixes fantasy and strategy elements, requiring players to navigate through intricate situations and make smart choices.

This immersive adventure is made even better with impressive graphics, user-friendly controls, and a world that responds dynamically to what you do. You can expect to engage in grand battles, explore expansive landscapes, and interact with a diverse set of characters, each with their own interesting stories and reasons. The decisions you make will strongly influence the game’s story, ensuring that each time you play, it’s a unique and different experience.

It is something that might remind some of the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO and how you choose to interact and decisions you make will greatly impact the development of your character. In turn this will give an amazing amount of customization not just in how your character develops, but how the story will unfold as well as how your character will be viewed by others.

The first thing we must mention is the Throne and Liberty World, how it will look and what awaits.

Throne and Liberty World Map

Throne and liberty world map

Throne and Liberty is set in the universe of Novcrea, but more specifically it starts off in the Solisium Realm. It offers an abundance of zones as well as variations in the zone scenery. It promises a seamless open world with no loading screens. The entire game will be one single zone that players will be able to navigate based on their own whims and creativity.

You will be able to forge new paths through the rich and varied landscapes and discover routes that will provide you with various advantanges. This also covers to the world’s verticality, meaning that you will be able to climb steep mountain passes and ravines in order to avoid any conflict or find shortcuts to different places. Furthermore, you will be able to assist other players on different floors of the multi-layered underground Dungeons. How this will play out in reality is yet to be seen but it’s a unique and intriguing concept that is meant to give a completely new perspective of how Dungeons are perceived.

The closest wording that would define what the developers did here would be Dungeons in which you have multiple layers and floors that you can either climb up to to defeat stronger and stronger creatures, or delve deeper depending on the Dungeon.

Novcrea is a universe which holds many zones. It is also the same universe of the MMO Lineage which was created by the same Developers of Throne and Liberty. The designated spot for this new MMO is in the North-East of the universe easily found by looking  at the Nimogos Ocean which is in the middle of the universe.

The zones in which Throne and Liberty will be set is called Solisium where epic battles, political intrigue, and the pursuit of power converge in a rich and dynamic gaming experience.

There is nothing that can explain this better than a video which showcases everything, so if you haven’t seen it – enjoy!

How does the Throne and Liberty Class System work?

The reason why we talk about the Class system after the Character creation is that it’s a bit different than what it is in most games. The regular pattern in most MMO’s is that you select your Factions, Races, Classes and after that you customize your Character.

In Throne and Liberty the order is different because there are NO CLASSES, in this game. The way this game works is that you simply customize your character and go into the world. Once you’ve finished that step, your “Class” is determined by the Weapons that you wield and the game is leaning towards having more Weapons in order to swap between them and utilize every weapon to it’s maximum potential.

We will talk in depth about all the specifics and which “Classes” you can be depending on the type of Weapons that you have equipped below!

Currently available Weapons in Throne and Liberty

This above mentioned unique approach offers more flexibility for changing how you play in the future. You have the ability to equip and swiftly switch between two weapons, allowing you to create impressive combinations with your chosen weapons and skills.

In traditional MMOs where Classes dictate your playstyle, it can be heartbreaking to spend hours mastering a Class, only to discover later that it doesn’t suit your preferences. Throne And Liberty eliminates this frustration by letting you experiment with different Classes, even in the later stages of the game, without a significant investment.

The developers have carefully examined how each weapon interacts with the game world beyond just variations in skills. This means that every time you try out a new weapon in the game, you can anticipate a completely different experience. There are also plans to expand the game by introducing more weapons, providing even more playstyles in the future.

Without further ado, lets cover all the Weapons and the various different abilities and playstyles that they offer!

TL Sword and ShieldSword and Shield

The standard set of weapons found in many games includes the sword and shield, offering a balanced mix of offense and defense. With an attack speed that falls between that of the greatsword and dagger, this weapon is an excellent choice for beginners as it combines both offensive and defensive capabilities into one package.

In terms of playstyle, the sword and shield is most suitable for players who enjoy being in the heart of battle. In group settings, players wielding this weapon often take on the role of the team’s tank, absorbing damage from enemies. A key ability of this weapon is a taunt that allows you to draw the attention of enemies, even those at a distance.

Due to its straightforward playstyle and direct approach to combat, the sword and shield has the potential to become one of the most popular classes in the game.

TL The GreatswordThe Greatsword

The Greatsword, a widely popular weapon in gaming, functions similarly in Throne And Liberty. Opting for this weapon designates you as a front-running DPS (Damage Per Second). The Greatsword excels in inflicting heavy damage to groups of enemies, but its weight makes you slower, rendering you more susceptible to incoming damage.

Specializing in skills that damage an area rather than a single target, the Greatsword is ideal for facing mobs of enemies. Despite being a formidable choice against mobs, the weapon’s usage makes you prone to attacks from unexpected directions.

A notable feature of the greatsword is its provision of buffs and defensive abilities for both you and your team, allowing you to take on a pseudo-support role.

TL DaggerDagger

In contrast to the deliberate and precise damage output of the greatsword, the dagger offers a swift and agile approach, making it the optimal choice for players favoring an assassin playstyle. When wielding daggers, players can utilize Stealth to infiltrate enemy lines and target crucial components of a mob.

The dagger also provides access to Poison Stacks, enabling players to gradually wear down the health of robust enemies. However, it comes with the trade-off of limited defensive capabilities. Unlike the greatsword, which offers buffs for both the user and the team, the dagger focuses solely on damage-dealing skills.

Despite the lack of extensive defenses, dagger users possess tools that facilitate effective engagement and disengagement in combat, making them exceptionally lethal in isolating and eliminating enemies one by one.

TL CrossbowThe Crossbow

Beyond melee combat, Throne And Liberty introduces an array of ranged weapons, including the crossbow. Ideal for players who enjoy stylish maneuvers and exploiting enemy positioning, the crossbow stands out as one of the game’s premier weapons.

Tailored for those embracing a high-risk, high-reward playstyle, the crossbow’s skills center around mobility, offering numerous movement abilities and buffs. Additionally, the crossbow capitalizes on stacking damage, excelling in single-target engagements.

When wielding a crossbow, your character will dual-wield them, embodying the essence of a true rogue. However, it’s worth noting that mastering the crossbow requires a high skill ceiling, providing a rewarding experience for those who invest the time to do so.

TL BowThe Longbow

If you prefer precise long-range combat without the risky maneuvers of the crossbow, then the longbow is the weapon for you. Considered the greatsword of ranged weapons, the longbow rewards a slower playstyle with heavier damage, particularly when accuracy is maintained.

Beyond being a ranged DPS weapon, the longbow doubles as a support weapon. From a distance, you can provide healing and buffs to your teammates. However, due to its slow nature, the longbow isn’t effective up close, lacking the swift killing capabilities of other weapons.

To maximize its potential, maintain distance and consider pairing it with a weapon offering mobility or personal defensive skills.

TL StaffStaff

For those enchanted by magic, the staff is the ideal weapon, perfect for players who relish the role of a wizard or mage in MMORPGs. This class empowers you to exploit elemental weaknesses while inflicting damage upon groups of adversaries.

The staff grants access to three elements, each with its unique effects. Lightning skills excel at dealing with groups of enemies, as the damage can bounce from one target to another. Fire skills induce damage over time with a burn effect, while Ice skills can slow and eventually freeze enemies.

When it comes to crowd control, the staff stands out as the best weapon. However, mastering the staff requires patience and practice, as manipulating magic and chaining skills together can be a complex thing to do.

TL Wand and TomeWand and Tome

Finally, we introduce another magic-based weapon: the wand and tome. If you relish the support/healer class, then this is the sole weapon you’ll require. The majority of the skills associated with the wand and tome revolve around burst healing, shields, and various buffs essential for your team.

While not as dependable for dealing damage compared to other weapon classes, the wand and tome do provide some form of offense through curses and Damage over Time (DoTs). However, your strengths lie in utilizing healing and support abilities from a distance rather than engaging in direct combat.
