Gameloft Unleashes Chaos Onto the App Store With One of the First iOS MMORPGs
To date, the App Store has had very few massively-multiplayer-online (MMO) games, and even fewer quality MMOs. Gameloft is the first to change that in a blatant attempt to cash in on the success that popular MMOs on the PC and Mac have had. The company’s first iOS MMO, titled Order & Chaos, can be downloaded right now practically worldwide. It also claims the title of being one of Gameloft’s first universal titles (a trend we hope they continue), so you can buy one version and play it on your iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.
The $6.99 price-of-entry gets you a three-month subscription. If you are inclined to waste, uh spend, more time in the world of Order & Chaos, then options for additional game-time are $.99 for a month, $1.99 for three months, or $2.99 for six months. These are reasonable prices compared to the typical standard of a $15/month subscription. A concern some may have since this isn’t a free game is that gold and “runes” for special in-game boosts can be purchased for hefty sums through in-app purchases.
Four races, a thousand skills, and two-thousand pieces of equipment await you in an obviously World of Warcraft-inspired online world. Early impressions are pointing to a conclusion that Order & Chaos gets the job done for a simple, decent-looking iOS MMO fix, but isn’t particularly deep and lacks lore/story.
