Welcome Adventurer!

Remote Knights Online is a faction based openworld multiplayer action RPG with survival elements.
You control your avatar from a freely adjustable 3rd person to 1st person perspective in a seamless handcrafted 3D world.
Main goal of the game is to survive and lead your faction to victory in a combination of PvE and PvP.
The world changes dynamically according to the behavior of the players,
You can play it in singleplayer, multiplayer or in self-hosted mode with custom ruleset.

Factions:

Players can join one of two factions in order to gain dominion over Vall Tir in atmospheric multiplayer/singleplayer battles.
Each fraction has its own history, culture and religion, which is reflected in the style of play, music and general ambience.
Play your way up in their ranks with friends or alone, unlock new skins, achievements, and more..
Every time you spawn, you play a new life, because by death you lose all items and the ingame level progression.
But if you manage to recover your treasure before an opponent has done it, you lose nothing.
General account level, unlocked content, achievements, etc. should be spared from death.

Graphic violence (18+):
The time in which the RKO plays is characterized by violence and the law of the strongest.
This is also reflected in the visual presentation.
Swords, for example, can cut plants, wood, fabric and even flesh and bones.
The level of violence can be set in three stages:
(no gore, blood, full gore)

Combat

The combat system in 'Remote Knights Online' is designed to be fast, tactical, immersive and fun.
Hits are done by weapons collision, there is no target locking or aim assists, players have to decide and aim by themselfs.
There are five weapon styles, each with its strengths and weaknesses.
(Unarmed, One-handed, Two-handed, Polearm, and Bow)
Attacks can be charged in direction and force, which affects damage and range.
Evading and parrying have to be timed well.
To win against heavily armored opponents you should try to hit the least armored part of the body for maximum penetration or just destroy armor with heavy charged attacks if you have some space.
Rhythm and awareness can be decisive in most battle situations.

The Action system is structured as follows:
Attack action: ((left mouse button + Time) + input direction)
Defend action: (right mouse button + input direction)
Evade action: (left shift + input direction)

Enemies/AI

The AI has a real life cycle and wants to fulfill needs like drinking, eating, resting and adventure. It can also use emotions to communicate with you and other AI's.
Which is not only amusing and atmospheric but also invites you to roleplaying. (even in this early version)
Apparently the best loot is to be found with dangerous bandits, waylayers, animals, undead and other creatures that roam the world.
For larger groups of higher level opponents, you better bring a few friends.
At night, most of the residents of Vall Tir retreat to their camps to rest, eat or just be in company. In addition,
it is said that in the absence of sunlight the undead crawl out of their graves, driven by the urge for fresh blood.

Items

Items are an important part of RKO, your virtual life depends on them.
At the moment there are weapons, armor, consumables and tools.
Each type varies within quality levels, from common to very powerful and rare.
Searching for items is a great adventure in itself.
You never know if the next opponent might drop something epic and valuable.
Equipment can also break and wear out, so stocking up if possible can be useful.

RolePlay

To support deep immersion, there is a social interaction system,
players can communicate quickly via a pie menu. Which also works with AI and can be quite amusing.
To recover from the strains of the fight, you will be able to make music together, dance and other fun stuff.
We have several other features like this in the making, more on that later.
