If you are someone who loves to play fantasy football or you just like to keep up with the latest action in your favorite video game franchise then you’ll want to add this game to your list of current favorites. October Factionis a popular online game that you can play for free with others for a variety of reasons but one of them being the ability to have unlimited character slots.
Now, that’s a pretty good way to create an unlimited character slot game. I imagine this game would draw a few players who like role playing games but don’t want to spend a ton of time in front of a computer. I guess that would be okay… not because I want someone to play through a role-playing game every single day, but because it would make me feel like I’m playing a game that’s been around for years, so I guess that works.
But the game wouldn’t be as long. The game would be similar to a game like, “You play a game of solitaire and then you come back in a couple of days and beat the boss.” The difference is, in my opinion, that you would have a longer game, and that it would be more accessible, since you would have an unlimited number of character slots.
In the game, I play as an elf named Dauntless. After losing one of my companions and having to run from the group, I decide to stay and fight the giant boss. I find a nearby cave and, after defeating the boss, I run back out and find that the group has already moved on, leaving me alone. I run back to my cave and find Dauntless has been killed by the boss. They took his body and dumped it in your cave.
So I guess if you’ve been playing the game and you didn’t notice you were missing out on a major part of the story, then you probably should have been, but this trailer is much more accessible than any of the other ones, and much more focused on the story.
But the game, especially at this early date, is about the group. I can’t wait for the next game to reveal the rest of the story, including the origin of the new “Faction”, but I won’t be disappointed if they don’t have another season, even at this early date.
For those who are worried about whether they’ll get to see some new footage, the trailer is available on YouTube, so it’s definitely worth checking out.
October faction is still a game in development, so expect a few more updates. It is also worth noting that it is not yet known if there will be a Season 2, but I do expect Season 3. I am also hoping that the next game will have a more focused story, with the main group of Visionaries being revealed.
If you are of a mind to see more of the game, it is definitely worth checking out on YouTube. In the meantime, keep an eye on GOG.com and look for the official release date of October Faction.
Also, if you’re more of a fan of dark fantasy than this new one, you can check out the original October Faction, where you can play as a dragon-slayer in a world of magic and magic powers.
