More about Otherland: Next
Otherland: Next comes with 4 classes, each of them able to switch between two roles:
The Warrior can be either a tank or a damage dealer with just a switch of a stance. Specialized in close quarter combat and high endurance, the Warrior is an excellent choice for melee combat.
The Assassin’s domain on the other hand is staying in the shadows, picking fights on his own terms and unleashing massive damage in a short amount of time. While rather fragile, the Assassin class can switch to a tanking role using avoidance rather than sheer endurance.
The Marksman keeps his enemies at range utilizing bows and firearms and is the supreme ranged combat class of the game. With a switch of a stance he can also aid his team with healing and buffs.
The Energizer uses large energy weapons and is the supreme healer in the game. Energizers can also quickly switch their role to a very capable ranged damage dealer.
Additionally, the Social Class offers the unique option to jump right to Lambda Mall, the main hub of the game, to customize the character and socialize with other players. Players of the Social Class can later choose to switch this character to one of the main classes and experience story, combat and all other game features with one of the four main classes.
Otherland: Next offers in-depth character customization starting with the character’s look itself all the way to gearing up.
Here you’ll find one of the most advanced and detailed crafting systems, that allows you to define individual stats of items you craft. Those items then can be customized further by adding mods into sockets or even use special items to change stats on already crafted items.
Players can also craft or buy costumes which will apply the looks to the character while keeping the stats of the equipped gear set. There are even vanity outfits following a wide range of visual themes, allowing you to further customize the looks of your characters.
The customization is not just about looks. With a wide selection of skills for each class you also get to build your character the way that best fits your playstyle.
