Order of the Assassin is an online Free-For-All game for Windows 64 bit. In game you will have the ability to play against your friends on steam or check out the twelve stage campaign that explains some of the back story behind the Order, the characters, and the maps available. I want Order of the Assassin to be a series. Even after this game is long finished I hope to be progressing the story more and more. It's my lifelong project and I'm going to make a masterpiece.
Note:The game-play in the Kickstarter trailer is NOT finished game-play. I have not yet added hit reactions to characters. Expect blood splatter and on-hit animations in the finished product!
During the campaign an interactive questing system will guide your way. You will be given many choices on your adventure, any one of which could effect the present/future story-line or even change the map! In the screenshot below, you just detonated a charge; collapsing a cave and trapping several NPC's deep under the rubble. Thus, changing any quests related to those NPC's. By the end of the campaign you will either have chosen to save the world, or cripple it under the might of Sevaroth and his undead army. Which will you choose?
On leveling up in the campaign or online you will receive three talent points to spend in your Assassin Specialization window. Each assassin will have three talent specializations, one for attack, one for defense, and the last will be a utility tree. Because this is a free-for-all style game there are no support, tank, or damage roles. it will be up to you to build to your play-style!
When you go online you will be able to make (or join) a game with your friends. Starting from level one just like in each campaign stage, you will set out to kill targeted NPC's and each other in order to level your character up and to add to your score. Each NPC kill will add one point to your score, while player kills will add ten. The faster you level the easier it will be to destroy other players in combat and raise your score. The game ends when the first player reaches a score of 250 or higher. Winning a PvP match will award you with PvP points which will be redeemable for in-game rewards.
Each assassin will have additional skins for players to unlock via campaign mode. To unlock an assassin's skin you will have to find twenty-five Assassin Tokens in any of that assassin's corresponding campaign stages. Corresponding campaign stages meaning any stage where you play as that assassin or see them as a NPC.
Each player will have a Biography in which they will choose a display name and a player icon. Both of these from your biography will be displayed in the lobby of any online games. Additional player icons are available for unlock with PvP points.
