Our E3 2005 Preview - MMORPG.com

While at the E3 Expo convention, we made sure to drop by the Sigil Games booth to check out Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.  What we saw was quite impressive and we have put together a mini-preview:

Programmer Ben Tarr shows off the crafting system

A crew from Sigil Games Online was on hand to show off the company’s first big game. Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is in the early stages, but already it looks impressive. Programmers David Forrest and Ben Tarr spent some time describing the game and the unusual approaches they are taking to the genre.

Not all races or classes are yet revealed. In fact, not all will be available at launch. The players are encouraged to explore and discover for themselves. At E3, the announced classes are Warrior, Sorcerer, Ranger, Pscionisist, and Cleric. Each character class will be different, even extending to the UI presented to the various players. The interface will customizable, so players will have the freedom to do what they wish. A couple of races, including goblins, orcs, kurashasa (cat people), and three types of elves were discussed, but there will be several more.

Group play is very important within Vanguard. Forrest explained that a level 25 Warrior will not be able to solo a level 25 dungeon. There are going to be solo options, but combat is only fully realized in a group within the game. As such, warriors, for example, can select an offensive target and a defensive target. While fighting a group of monsters, an attack on a cleric may cause the warrior to break off and jump in front of the melee. This is part of reactions, which help a player inside combat. Other reactions include the ability to fend off or even offensively counter attacks from opponents.
