Ethyrial: Echoes of Yore features a character creator where the developer claims your stats "truly matter," where each "choice and skill mastery is essential to avoiding paths to brutal defeat." There are 26 different vocations to choose from in the build now, giving a dizzying level of customization to your build, as well as how you build your team as you jump into dungeons, fight bosses, and more. Ehyrial also features an extensive crafting system as well as non-instanced housing, giving players the ability to build where they can - and fight over territory in its open PvP system.
You can download the demo now through its Steam page. Be sure to tune into the developer stream tomorrow night at 9pm EST/6pm PST to see the developers putting the demo through its paces.
