Asda 2 is the next iteration of Asda Story, the highly successful MMO run in the US by the lovely people at GamesCampus. Last October they released chapter 3 for this game and back then Vincent conducted an interview with them about it. The expansion was mostly aimed at the well established high level community Asda Story has as it introduced new high level content and raised the repeatable quests to level 70.
Back then this begged the question what was in store for new players, wouldn't they be left too far behind? Well not anymore because now GamesCampus is ready to launch the "Evolution" of Asda, aptly named Asda 2: Evolution.
The character creation in Asda 2 Gold is a tad confusing at the start as the options for customization are quite limited. You are only given the choice between a male or a female character after which you can pick what Constellation your character was born under. The customization possibilities are downright scarce with only 5 different hairstyles, 3 different hair colors and 19 different faces. But don't worry about that because the game will still offer plenty of opportunity for your character to look unique later on in the gameplay! You can see the various options in our video review here!
Another thing that is obvious right away is that there is no class selection in the character creation screen. Asda 2 Gold let's you pick that a bit later in the game and I think that is pretty cool! When you do get the choice of what class to become you can pick between eight very varied choices! On top of that the game boasts hundreds of skills and dozens of job classes. Plenty to progress through!
Your character starts out in the cute town of Alpen. A cute and peppy track plays in the background and the cute mapsystem will help you find some cute NPC's that will send you on various tasks to help the villagers out.
Yes I realize that paragraph contains the word cute a lot. But only because it's true! The first impression of this game is that it's, well.. cute, and that doesn't need to be a problem at all. GamesCampus very obviously targets a certain demographic with this game and in a world where companies are often trying to stick to the safe middle ground it's refreshing to see that Asda is taking the risk and introducing an outlier.
