City of Steam Arkadia is a free-to-play browser MMORPG with turn-based combat from developer Mechanist Games. City of Steam lets you play a medieval-techno-fantasy adventure that is both friendly to soloers and parties. This no download mmorpg requires you to install a browser plugin called Unity Web Player, which will allow your browser to display the game’s high-quality 3D graphics and environments. City of Steam Arkadia is in a crumbling industrial metropolis called the World Machine. A millennium ago, an ancient group of conquerors known as the Paragons sought to harness the mystical energies that keep the World Machine running. Their greed and power proved to be their downfall, though, and they were mysteriously destroyed. But now trouble is stirring from the city-state of Nexus, the site of the Paragons’ downfall. Players will grapple with this emerging threat.
As a new player, you will get to choose from a total of nine races now residing in the World Machine and who will explore the Nexus for their respective interests. There are the four human races, which are further subdivived into the Heartlanders, Avens, Ostenians and Stoigmari; the aristocratic sullen-skinned Draug; the charismatic elf-like Riven; the mischievous Goblins; the strong-willed Hobbes; and the gruff Orcs. Each of these races not only look different, but also start the game with different stats called vitals and passives. Vitals include such combat determiners as Physical Agility and Physical Strength while passives range from Attack to Reflex to Speed. This makes it important for City of Steam Arkadia players to choose the appropriate class that will make full use of your starting vitals and passives. Luckily, the game offers recommended classes for each race.
There are four available classes in City of Steam Arkadia -- The Arcanist who casts elemental spells; the stealthy Gunner who wields a pair of magical firearms; the full-armored Warder tasked with protecting their weaker charges; and the zealous Channeler who use instruments to inspire and trumpet doom in battle. Each of the classes has access to different weapons and armor, and also provide respective bonuses in vitals and passives.
Once you have chosen a race and a class in City of Steam Arkadia, you will be able to enter the world and play it either as a single-player RPG or a full-featured MMO. The game can be played solo with each character battling intelligent AI enemies in turn-based combat, or as a group for harder dungeon content. Aside from clearing bosses and collecting gear, characters also strive to explore more about their personal history which will unfold based on your chosen class and race. City Steam Arkadia follows the revenue model of other free browser games by running a cash shop for exclusive in-game items as well as game merchandise such as t-shirts and posters.
