. Volgens RPG Planet is het een leuk spel met een vecht systeem zoals in Darkstone.RPGPlanet:
It has been stated that SOTA is a role-playing game with fighter game elements. How exactly has this been implemented? Will players see a entirely new combat system that has not been used before in a role-playing game?
The combat system in SOTA is a revolutionary cross between the intricate combat systems commonly used in fighter games and the simple point-and-click interface common to Diablo-like RPGs. SOTA gives the player the ability to change the type of attack just by pointing the mouse at a different enemy body segment. Clicking the enemy's head will toggle a high attack while clicking on the enemy's feet will togle a low attack, etc. Different types of attacks work differently with different weapons. A dagger will cause the most damage when used in thrusting, piercing types of attacks, while a hammer or mace will cause more damage if used with crushing blows. Different creatures will also be resistant to different types of damage. SOTA also allows players who are following a warrior-like class to learn special combat "abilities". These are moves that can be hot-keyed and pulled off at any time during combat. Most of these involve a multiple-hit attack, more powerful attacks, and the like. Learning and practicing these special moves will be the key to developing a good warrior.
Survivor of The Ages staat gepland voor het laatste kwartaal dit jaar. De uitgever is nog niet bekend
