About the Game:

Welcome to Inspiration

Originally Project Hiraeth was inspired by creations like Log Horizon, and Sword Art Online. We wanted to truly capture what existing in and playing a fantasy MMORPG should feel like. Free, Unscripted, ever changing, and gritty realistic. Project Hiraeth will feature a fluid game world where every players actions will eventually carve into the history of the game as it changes the fate of the entire world.

Welcome to Freedom

Whether you want to be the leader of your own fleet of merchants, owning entire regions of the game through charisma and the need for products, or you wish to have an iron grip on territories as your guild conquers every corner of the world. There will be quality adventure for everyone. Project Hiraeth will feature numerous ways players can interact with, and have an impact on the world around them. Traveling far into untamed wilderness, discovering new species of behemoth monsters and dangerous locations. Embarking on heroic quests or empire crippling assassinations.

Welcome to Dynamic Combat

A combat system that will genuinely captivate, and challenge players is an entirely new caliber. The unique combat system is being painstakingly developed, and meticulously designed to produce an unparalleled experience. With a strong belief in captivating gameplay, and a deep hatred for robotic tasks, the developers at Awakened Studio have stepped far away from the classic "Point-And-Click", and took an even greater leap away from the typical "Dynamic-Combat" offered today. A combat system that rewards skill, and produces an experience you would expect from a game stepping into the shoes of a real warrior. Be prepared to have your mind tested, your skills refined, and keep your eyes always open. The combat system has been inspired by titles like Chivalry, Dark Souls & Monster Hunter.

Welcome to a New World

A world designed to feel immersive, awe-inspiring, and highly interactable. Every fine detail from the textures across the gravel roads, to the top of its majestic palaces is meticulously designed to produce an incredible experience. A truly fluid world, where an extravagant city could exist one day, and be reduced to ash by a rampant monster the next. The power struggle between good and bad is directly affected by the players actions, your choices are limitless as you embark on a true quest of self discovery and individual experiences.


Welcome to The Unpredictable, Take Charge Player!

Experience the game solo, or socialize with friends to take a break from exploration in a local tavern. Challenge a fierce cyclops to a duel over rights to hunt or create a unique guild and watch it go from a band of 4 players, to an incredible 200 player empire, with a sprawling guild hall. Display your guild insignia on banners that stand proud throughout the world. Join the Frontline Force, the Goddess of War's cult, the Ecilop Advent's Justiciary force or any other faction for unique rewards while increasing their influence in the world, changing it with every day.

With hundreds of raids, thousands of dungeons, even more weapons and armors, you choose who you want to be. Experience a character customization on a new level, as you design the second you. Craft an armor that reflects you as you change materials, alter its colors, and pick your look. How you play is all up to you.

Watch as your character ascends from the slums, to the towers of the largest empire.

So player, how will you get there?

SAO was clearly badly desinged, and from the other MMORPG I have played there are few that are decent so what exactly dose this one offer that dosent make it annother boring grinding platform and more of an interesting game. # one problim I have with MMO RPG is the fact that 90% of them are locked to third person view and rein the emersion and stop us from apreciating the work that whent into desinging the world . PS Sorry for spelling
