Order & Chaos Online jumps from Phone to Windows 8.1 with Xbox LIVE

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:

"While Order & Chaos Online is basically a World of Warcraft clone, it's also an utterly massive and compelling game – especially for a phone game."

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.

MOUNT UP

  • 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!

  • Keep them coming, Gameloft. :)
  • World at Arms now also has Xbox LIVE achievements. ;)
  • Does it have gamepad support on Windows 8.1?
  • Nope and KB & Mouse support is horrendous.
  • Hopefully it will be added in an update, though I am not holding my breath
  • Great news. I hope EU servers will really explode with users now.
  • They already have. I see tons of new people pooping around.
  • Bad mistake lol
  • Yeah, but now, while there is a tiny bit of hype, there needs to be A LOT of people, so the game keeps living when the "try it out" folks get bored.
  • I mean that he wrote pooping instead of popping
  • I can't even login yet
  • Can't wait to try it out on my 2520 when it arrives.
  • Anyone hit level 8 yet? What is the cost to play after you hit it as its only 100% free until that point.
  • Which one is the most populated server?
    Keyboard and mouse control is epic, time to play like a pro.
  • I played a bit last night. Had a pretty good time. Hope controller support gets added at some point.
  • There's a 512MB not supported banner... LOL. I don't think any device running Windows 8 comes with just 512MB RAM.
  • Why do they keep saying it is free when the description says it is only free until level 8. It's basically a free "Try" version. To be honest,I don't know how long it takes to get to level 8, so maybe it is more significant than it sounds. Anyone reach level 8 yet?
  • It doesn't take long. Maybe 4 hours, maybe a little longer.
