If you haven?t heard of the game Frontiers yet, the best way to describe the game is a comparing it with Bethesda?s Elder Scrolls series. Much like Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. Only with reduced Non-Playing Character interaction. Also, the map isn?t as huge as that of Oblivion or Skyrim. But Frontier does a very good job of making its player get the familiar feeling of adventuring in an open world game.
The graphics aren?t as impressive as the well-known Skyrim or even Oblivion, but it is a few folds better than Morrowind and Daggerfall for sure. The environment, both indoors and outdoors, looks amazingly detailed as well.
The game surfaced last year and it was being developed by two people only at that point. In its early stages, it already showed a great hint of how the game will look like in the future release. The good news is the development for it continues as the game is already up on Steam Greenlight.
It is not yet clear how much we can can check about the game, because in the trailer, there were too few character interactions and not much battle going on.
Here the key features which might appeal to a huge number of gamers who?s into open world gaming like Elder Scrolls or Fallout:
- Massive open world – go anywhere, any time
- Unique relaxing pace and tone
- An exploration-focused main quest that spans an entire continent
- Simple gameplay – no stats or skill trees to memorize (It barely qualifies as an RPG, really)
- Live off the land – hunt, trap, fish and cook dozens of varieties of plantlife (including hallucinogens!) and a dozen varieties of animal
- Minecraft-style item crafting system
- Dozens of skills to discover and learn, including magic, survival and stealth skills
- Hundreds of shops, taverns, homes, caves, castles and other structures to explore
- Four-player co-op multiplayer – explore with your friends!
- A haunting soundtrack for every region
- Oculus Rift support
- Full mod support
Frontiers game is scheduled to be released mid year.
