Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is a fantasy MMORPG in the hands of Sony Online Entertainment, who also hold other notable MMORPGs, such as EverQuest, EverQuest II, and DC Universe Online. Vanguard puts players in the fantasy land of Telon, and has all the usual suspects expected of the genre: a vast land to explore, questing, PvE, PvP, RP, dungeons, raids, mounts, crafting, player housing, and more. Vanguard has no zones or instances, making traveling and adventuring much more persistent and believable than other MMORPGs. The game employs a hybrid free-to-play model with optional subscriptions to unlock all of the content.
