Today's Fury Preview was written by not one, but two of our writers. Managing Editor Jon Wood had been playing the Fury Beta, but could not attend the content-complete demo, so Staff Writer Adele Caelia filled his shoes at that event, the result of which is this preview where you get both Jon's impressions and Adele's.
Fury. One person described this game to me as, “an MMO with all of the boring stuff stripped out of it”. While personally I don’t think that’s a completely accurate statement (I happen to like the PvE stuff that my friend described as “boring stuff”), I would have to say that Fury takes the conventions of a standard MMO and turns them on their ear.
PvP. In most MMOs, PvP is a side-attraction. It’s often included in MMOs these days as something else to do in between leveling and making your way through the PvE elements of the game. You know, quests, exploration, that kind of thing. Fury flips this convention over, making their game all about PvP with little to no room for PvE elements.
After character creation, you take your first steps into the Sanctuary. It is here that you and your character prepare for the many battles that are to come. It is here that you learn how the game works in the form of a tutorial. My advice is to pay close attention. While a lot of the conventions are similar, this is a bit more complicated than your average run-of-the-mill MMO.
