Behold the first footage of Order & Chaos Online 2

Last month, Gameloft announced that Order & Chaos Online 2 would be coming to all mobile platforms this year. The prospect of a huge and fully featured massively multiplayer online RPG (not unlike Onigiri for Xbox One) certainly got this gamer excited, even if we didn't have any screens or footage to show what it would be like.

At last we have some concrete information! Gameloft has just released footage and details describing some of Order & Chaos Online 2's features. Two big changes are the additions of 'Instant Quests' and Solo Dungeons. We got an early glimpse of both modes, and now I'm here to tell you all about them. Read on for details and our gameplay video with commentary!

Instant Quests

The first big new feature in Order & Chaos Online 2 is Instant Quests. A quick rundown:

  • Instant quests are triggered automatically when you enter a region related to that quest
  • These events save players the time needed to speak with a NPC and receive a quest, though they can still do that
  • Rewards and loot are automatically awarded after completing an instant quest, no check-in with the quest giver needed
  • These do not replace regular questing, but offer another way for players to gain experience and interact with the world
  • There are many interesting instant quests spread throughout Haradon and players will have to explore to find them all

The Instant Quest we saw involved hunting a pack of bears in the woods. Besides slaying the slumbering beasts (kind of mean!), players will have to examine some bear traps and strange plants growing in the area.

Will Instant Quests improve the game? They certainly give you something to do without having to fuss about with NPCs. We'll have to play the game to see how well they fit into everything else the player will be doing, especially when partied up with friends.

Solo Dungeons

The new Solo Dungeons are called Dream Dungeons in-game. They take place within your character's dreams, so you don't have to travel anywhere to access them.

  • Short on time or group members? Solo dungeons allow players to get that dungeon experience and rewards even when they only have a few minutes or lack a group
  • 4 solo dungeons will be available at launch, with more coming in the future
  • Solo dungeon rewards vary, but players can expect to get items needed for crafting and evolving gear, gold, and more
  • Enter solo dungeons using dream fragments, which replenish every day

The Dream Dungeon we sat in on took place in the center of a town filled with chaos. Our hero had to stop a gang of soldiers and the enraged townspeople from executing an innocent prisoner. This involved dispatching soldiers first, then the rock-throwing townspeople. Finally, another executioner appeared as the dungeon boss.

Dream Dungeons are timed, so you have to rush to complete them. On the plus side, they're much shorter than multiplayer dungeons, so you can squeeze them in while on the go. Players can only attempt each dungeon once per day. Additional attempts will cost premium currency; this is a free to play game after all.

Coming soon to a device near you

Order & Chaos Online 2 is coming soon, but we don't have a definite release date yet. The game will launch on Windows 10 and Windows Phone, Android, and iOS. We'll have a full review as close to launch as possible! In the meantime, RPG fans can visit and sign up to receive some free items when the game launches.

  • 512MB RAM....yay?
  • No chance.
  • As its gona be huge,, n online game.. I doubt it will support 512... As they skipped 512 for DH5
  • Forgot the /s. Also the 4GB fail for the 530, hindering it from getting Windows 10. Tsk tsk tsk.
  • Upgrade already. You can get a phone with 1GB RAM very cheap these days.
  • Have you seen the graphics? I doubt 1GB phones will run this smoothly.
  • Even 1GB phones will have some problems with this game. Have you seen the graphics and animation? No way it's going to run smoothly on 1gb phones.
  • Instant Questing is the same system from Guild Wars 2.
  • Looking forward for this game. Hope we won' t have to wait some weeks more than android users, like in Dungeon Hunter 5.
  • U guys should mention that awards can be collected at for when the game releases. Its easy, it took me 15 mins to get them all.
  • Good idea. Added that at the end.
  • No problemo ;)
  • Is your name a reference to the J Cole song?
  • Kinda, im just a (J)erk with a bad smirk in the eyes of those that work with me. They gave me that name cause of the song. But its all in a good way.
  • Looks interesting. Insta quests could be a good idea on mobile platforms, hmm, we will see.
  • Hope is not buggy as DH5.... In DH5 we call Gameloft as Bugloft... As the game has soo many bugs.. Hehehe.. Can't count also
  • Great game but lots of bugs indeed. I believe it has to do with the constant online requirement.
  • When the warrior stops walking, the animation is funny like he wasn't suppose to walk that fast.
  • Even the original O&C runs like dog feces on my 1520. They better put some actual effort into getting this game to run properly on high wp's this time.
  • My s6e+ only has 4 gb of ram. Is that Enough? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Depends... Does it have at least a Core M processor and NVIDIA 980M?
  • Should I use both of those just to be safe? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • This game almost looks as good as an Xbox 360 title. Impressed.
  • I'd say more like Wii. Smartphones are definitely on Wii level now. But not quite 360 level yet.
  • Windows servers on order and chaos is about two years behind iOS and android, plagued with hackers, and no communication from Gameloft on getting updates for Windows. Hope things change for OC2.
  • On what device was the gameplay video recorded?
  • I believe it was recorded from devkits, not a specific mobile device. They gave us the footage and we edited it and added voiceover.
  • Looks much better
  • How to download app or game from this windows central? Should I login first?
  • The game is not available yet.
  • Hopefully we'll see some cross platform play support.
  • Looks a lot better than Order and Chaos 1. It looks good, even for a desktop MMO, as most of them are bad.
  • they already relesed it... but not on windows yet.. only android and IOS... paul i thoght u said it was only release first on windows store
