Illyriad is a free to play, browser-based MMORPG game that allows players to construct and govern their very own medieval themed kingdom. Rise to power by constructing a huge variety of different buildings, train a vast army from a strong selection of units and manage diplomatic relations with thousands of other players in the world of Illyriad.
There are four races available in Illyriad, Humans, Elves, Dwarves and Orcs. Unlike other MMORTS games that offer the same experience with each race, just with a different appearance, the developers of Illyriad have gone to great lengths to make each race totally unique while managing to maintain a balance. Each race has specific strengths and weaknesses such as Dwarves possessing the best siege weaponry and defenses, while Elves are known for the lethality of their Elven archers. Illyriad recommends that players choose their race carefully, as although each one has specific strengths and weaknesses, they each scale in difficulty. Humans are considered to be the easiest race as they're the most well-rounded, while Elves are considered the most difficult as they're very resource intensive.
There are hundreds of browser-based MMORTS games available online so what makes Illyriad truly standout? The main feature that attracts players to Illyriad is the magic system. There are 3 distinct schools of magic in the game, each offering players a huge arsenal of devastating abilities. These abilities vary from causing direct damage to enemies to healing buildings and reducing construction time. In order to unlock these abilities players must research them using specific buildings, once researched abilities are available permanently.
Illyriad is home to thousands of beasts and mythical creatures. Players can expect to encounter a huge variety of enemy monsters from Wolves and Humans to hordes of the undead. Thanks to the expertly designed combat system, players can encounter groups of monsters that can be up to 50,000 units in size, creating highly intense battles against some of the biggest enemy hordes seen in a MMORTS game.
