Just a few days ago, Windows Central brought word that Order & Chaos Online was not only returning to Windows Phone, but its price would drop to free. Additionally, we reported that a Windows 8.1 version would also be due soon.
Today is that day as Order & Chaos for Windows 8.1 and RT is now available to download, and as we reported, it comes replete with support for Xbox LIVE and universal login.
Order & Chaos Online is the only Xbox-enabled MMORPG for Windows and Windows Phone. We also described it as:
Now that compelling game can be explored on your Surface or PC, which should be much fun. From the app description:
WHO WILL YOU BE?
- Use the advanced character-creation system to customize your hero:
- 5 races available: Elves and Humans fight for Order, Orcs and Undead for Chaos, while Mendels are neutral.
- Choose your gender, appearance, class and talent. With over 1,000 skills and 3,000 pieces of equipment to discover, your adventure will not be over soon.
- Create up to 4 different characters to play.
INTERACT WITH THE COMMUNITY
- Make friends or enemies, trade, challenge, communicate and more: A wide range of interactions makes each player a living part of this universe.
- Join a party or guild to become stronger and coordinate with your teammates, or you can choose to adventure solo, interacting with other players peacefully or otherwise…
THE WORLD IS YOURS
- Travel through the most majestic settings -- from dark forests to deserts, jungles, mountains and more -- on foot or by magical means.
- Talk and interact with hundreds of characters to find over 1,200 quests to perform.
ENTER THE PvP ARENAS!
- Join Player vs. Player arenas and spill the blood of your enemies to dominate the online leaderboards.
- Ride into battle faster than ever on the awesome mounts, including Lions, Stags, Bears, and more!
Overall, this should be a fantastic game for Windows and Windows Phone users, primarily due to the Xbox LIVE feature. Be warned though, the Windows 8.1 version comes in at a massive 1.4GB , so make sure you have some space set aside for it and the installation!
Thanks, Dadstar0410 and Shaun S., for the tips!
