Review: The Skies
The Skies is a post-apocalyptic MMORPG with a non-linear storyline, in which you follow your own path or join other players to conquer the wasteland.
In this innovative sandbox, you create your own adventure in a player-driven economy your actions will result in the development of both the world and your character.
The game story takes place in the early 21st century when solar activity increased dramatically. Within two weeks civilization collapsed, wiping out power sources, government, and infrastructure. Humanity descended into darkness.
In 2150-2170, the dust began to settle on the surface of the planet and the sunrays reappeared after 150 years of darkness.
The Skies offers amazing flexibility and the ability to interact with the world in a variety of different ways. You can build up the economy or hunt monsters or simply explore and learn about the world through the scraps of knowledge that have been left behind. The players create the story and the plot of The Skies, which offers amazing freedom in character development and progression.
The Skies Gameplay
As soon as you get up, grab the Bump infront of you as well as the clothes in the wardrobe to the right. You will begin with 18 Major points and 9 Minor points. Add all the Major points to the Intelligence, making it 20. This will result you to have 45 Minor points every time you level up. This is beneficial for those who wants to be a support role, being the merchant and the craftsmen. Add all the minor points to Travelling, till 60 points. Lots of needed items from looting and mining requires Travelling of 40-60 points, that includes Gas which maybe needed for crafting of the vehicles.
*Update: After the Server Inventory Wipe on 17 June 2016, you are only allowed to place a maximum of 10+(CurrentLevel), for the Major points. So you can only place 10 Major points to Intelligence as of now. Minor points will require Major points to be added, in order to add beyond the limited points per level.
