» About the game
FreeWorld: Apocalypse Portal is a MMORPG currently in development (not yet finished), and we occasionally hold signups to allow new players to come and test the game.
It is an age of war and destruction, where the evil minions of The Void push forward to destroy the world of Seregor. Travel to a place where the inhabitants must join together to fight for survival in an epic saga of limitless adventure and excitement. A bizarre place, much different then the world we know, sets the scene for this new Fantasy/Sci-Fi MMORPG. Battle along side your friends in the quest of a lifetime to reconstruct Scuro's spell book and rid the land of The Void's treachery. No longer be held captive to the boundaries of "level caps" and "class restrictions"; escape the endless boredom and agony of point and click combat. Take a step into the world of Seregor (and beyond) and prepare to battle to the death in an effort to make this a FreeWorld once more!
|What was heaven is now a virtual hell.
There is nothing left of our once beautiful land except darkness and the stench of death. The few of us that remain squabble for scraps of comfort in a confusing post-holocaust world. Hoarders, robbers and murderers ravage this dead rock we call our home. It is a cruel irony to think that all this bloodshed and disorder was caused by one night of infidelity.
The great King Giocatore once ruled our realm, but after the birth of his illegitimate child the historians would no longer write of happy times. The Queen Evrae, pregnant with a true heir to the throne, was furious that this child could take the throne instead of her own precious son. She ordered to the royal guard to banish this bastard child and kill his mother. Her will would be done and the boy was destined to a life of pain and suffering.
Years passed and the King’s illegitimate child, Scuro, grew; through his abandonment he became twisted with anger and spent many hours learning the dark arts of magic. He nurtured and developed this skill until he was strong enough to return to the Grand Citadel of Cielo and seek vengeance upon his father. Scuro cut down all who crossed his path; spilling blood and spreading pain without care as he walked into the king’s chamber. He craved to own what he was denied. Marching up to the now elderly King he demanded the crown he felt should be his.
Giocatore was happy to see his long lost son, but in his heart he knew if Scuro was allowed to ascend to the throne the Kingdom he loved so dearly would be destroyed. In the hopes of keeping his second son close to him, he offered Scuro a deal to make him a prince, but would never allow him to become King. The King plead with him, “It would mean a life of paradise without the burden of a crown.” This was not enough for the prodigal son and he became enraged with Giocatore’s offer; it was the final insult after all he had suffered. Scuro left his father and swore vengeance upon his land and all that lived there.
Scuro yelled, “I will cast a great curse upon this land when the moons next align! All will bow down to my power!” Then he stormed out of the room. The Queen begged her true son, Prince Arco, to find Scuro and kill him before he could carry out his evil threats. Regrettably, Arco became confused shortly after setting out and found himself lost in the wilderness, presumably becoming a victim of the murderous hordes.
Scuro returned to where he first learnt his dark arts. Calling once more upon the tremendous evil in his soul, he plotted his revenge. Not by the sword did he intend to wield his fury, instead he raised his pen and furiously poured out all of his malice, hatred and spite onto paper. The pen seemed to take on a life of its own filling page after page with arcane curses of a forgotten time. When he finally finished he bound the pages together and slumped over, exhausted by the dark book he had created. Now, he would wait.
Not even the King’s best astrologers could predict when the moons would align, but they all agreed that it was certain to happen. One morning, as everyone had feared, the sun did not rise and the world awoke to chaos. The scribbling of Scuro’s demented mind, his pure hatred for this world had brought forth The Void.
The Void destroyed all of the great armies, consumed the crops in the fields, and reduced the once magnificent cities to piles of rubble. It almost succeeded in wiping all life from this planet, and many of the surviving life forms were mutated into horrific creatures of evil the likes of which had never been seen before. The Grand Citadel of Cielo, home of the King, was also burnt to the ground; all that remained of the King and Queen was a dark stain on what was left of the throne room floor. The few secluded settlements that escaped the initial onslaught were cut off and isolated from each other.
Little is known about what happened to Scuro after the spells were cast, but legend has it that visions of The Void ravaged his mind and left him insane.
Who among you is clever enough to find The Void? Who is strong enough to battle the malice within? Who is resourceful enough to contain this pure evil? Is it you? The fate of the land is in your hands! You’ll probably end up joining the rest of the maggots and murder your brethren for gold that has no value, but maybe you’ll become strong enough to join the hopeless crusade against The Void. Someone must rise to the challenge and crush these messengers of death, or else our world is lost.
Can you return safety to the world? Will Seregor once again be free?

Network of servers:
Eventually, each server will host it own vast worlds that may be completely different from the other worlds and hold new adventures. This will make it a new game depending on what server you choose to play on. The options will be endless.
Create an unlimited number of characters to play with and choose from over 100 skills.
FreeWorld: Apocalypse Portal will not have a class system; everyone will be able to do everything, but you’ll only become good at the things you do more often. This will be a 100% skill-based game.
Live your own adventure and go as high as your desires take you with unlimited levels and over 100 skills to train in.
FreeWorld has a large variety of quests that allow players to determine their own gaming experience. We’ll have quests for all the skills, from non-combat quests for the “casual user” to huge boss raids for the “hardcore power leveler.” No longer will there be a need to spend days playing just to get to your first quest, or being bored in a month because you’ve beaten the game. Whether you complete one or try to complete them all, FreeWorld: Apocalypse Portal is the right game for you.
Fight and train everyday animals like Chickens, Pigs, and Wasps, or take on the big guys. We’re talking Spector Hounds, Giant Rock Trolls, the Crul and the Groggs, plus the hundreds of monsters we haven’t mentioned.
FreeWorld is unlike your average MMORPG, it’s better. There are no “point and click” attacks; all combat in Freeworld is in real time. Whether you fight with your hands or choose from hundreds of different weapons, only your skill will determine if you win or die. Kick your enemies, shoot them with your bow in first person combat, disembowel them with your Soul Cleaver, or just vaporize them with your wand. You decide how to fight; then whip the pants off of them!
FreeWorld will be a 100% skill-based game, unlike any other MMORPG. Anyone will be able to practice any skill they like, but they’ll be better at the things they do most often. The skill system will be designed so that you don't even have to fight if you don't want to, all skills grant experience towards leveling up. You could be a master blacksmith, or a spell-crafter, or be a merchant and get rich buying and selling other people’s creations. Since there are no level caps you could train and become them all! There’s no need to battle monsters for money and experience because if you need materials you can harvest them yourself or barter with others. With this system even those who aren’t battle-hardened can rise to elite ranks and get rich by finding a skill or craft they enjoy.
The universe will be massive, with several planets to traverse. You could explore the ruins of Cielo, check out The Void, explore any number of caves, battle the Crul in Galen Forest, or try to find Scuro in the Greymore Swamp. Pick your favorite environment, and it will be here in FreeWorld: Apocalypse Portal.
One of the best features of FreeWorld is that the open skill system allows EVERYONE to cast spells. There are drawbacks for players wearing heavy armor or wielding large weapons while casting spells, and some races are not as good with magic, but with enough training anyone can cast any spell they want. If you’d like, after you’ve finished casting spells you can throw on a set of heavy armor, grab your favorite hammer and start crushing anything that looks at you funny.
Player vs. player:
When it comes to PvP, Freeworld will have it all; fighting in guild wars, one on one arena battles, capture the flag and more. The players that don't like PvP won't have to worry because all PvP action is inside a PvP zone (which is inside FreeWorld itself and not a separate server], while those who favor PvP will be able to travel back and forth between zones with the same character. Be careful if choose to enter and challenge a player, you may be sent off with your tail between your legs and your coin purse lightened.
There will be a huge selection of housing options; be a powerful landowner, buy and run your own shop, or build a mammoth fortress for your guild to hold gatherings.
Build the most powerful guild of all and form alliances to battle in epic guild wars. Plan guild battles and open your own battle servers. The FreeWorld Guild system will surpass anything ever seen.
And still more to come!
