Well, the game is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), in which players take on the role of an immortal being who has to defend their land from invading gods and other devastating beings. Without giving too much away, the invaders aren't really gods, they're just creatures that possess advanced technology. However, the fact that this technology is viewed as magic by many and those who wield it as gods is an interesting concept nonetheless.
The ultimate goal in Skyforge is to become a god yourself, but the journey to get there is filled with peril and hardship. Basically what that means in real-life terms is that you'll have to spend dozens of hours playing the game to reach that point.
According to a listing spotted on the Xbox Store, the game is coming to Xbox One on November 10, 2017. While the game follows a free-to-play model, there are various Founder Packs available which grant early access. Early access starts on November 10 with the title going to free to play sometime on November 24.
The Founder Packs start at $14.99 and include some Argents and a Premium Subscription. You can spend up to $79.99 if you want many of the classes unlocked as well as other perks. Argents are an in-game currency which can be used to obtain cosmetic items and strengthen your character. A Premium Subscription gives you more rewards for finishing missions and provides other bonuses which help you grow your character faster.
Just like any other MMORPG, Skyforge features raids and lots of other activities. There's also a full campaign mode. The game is already available on Windows PC and PlayStation 4 and has quite the following. If you're interested, be sure to check it out on the Xbox Store and place your preorder.
