Basic Gameplay[edit | edit source]

While combat is a core feature, Fractured revolves around travel and exploration. This means preparation for journeys as the environment can kill you if you're not ready. Food and water is required as is rest and proper clothing. Fractured caters to hardcore PvP and more casual PvE players. To this end there are three planets that represent different playstyles.

PvP[edit | edit source]

The PvP system relies on several factors such as: Alignment, Race, and Planet. Depending on the Alignment of yourself and your opponent, killing them will net a Karma gain, loss, or neither.

PvE[edit | edit source]

Just like PvP, the PvE system relies on the same factors, albeit for NPC creatures instead of other players.

Abilities & Skills[edit | edit source]

Abilities are grouped into different categories, called Schools of Magic and Schools of Fighting. You're not restricted from learning any skill, nor are you forced to learn them in any order. The system is designed to allow you to mix different schools to create the perfect character suited to your play style

Gods[edit | edit source]

There are 6 gods in the Fractured universe and depending on which one you give an offering, you will experience a positive, neutral, or negative effect on your Karma.

Elysium[edit | edit source]
