Day Two at the EB Games Expo in Sydney saw OXCGN get access to both Indie and Triple AAA titles.
While every gamer and their dog were lining up for hours waiting for highly-anticipated such as Battlefield 4, Titanfall and Call of Duty: Ghosts, OXCGN managed to dodge the lines and check out these upcoming titles.
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot
OXCGN Staff: Daniel Geikowski
Thoughts: Ubisoft’s The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is an upcoming free-to-play strategy title.
To be honest, I had never really seen much of Mighty Quest apart from the trailers shown at E3.
Mighty Quest revolves around the acquisition of loot; the aim of the game being to acquire and show off more and more loot.
Each player has their own castle, and must attack others in order to gain loot and experience. Each castle has a range of traps and monsters players must conquer to claim their prize.
Navigation and combat is fairly similar to titles such as Diablo, and any fan of the genre will have no trouble getting into the swing of Mighty Quest.
New players don’t have to fear a steep learning curve, as all various attacks are well displayed and feature explanations of what they involve.
Even someone like myself, who as you know is no strategy pro, found it quite easy to dispatch my foes on my way through the castle.
The great thing here is that these castles have been built by other players.
While Attack Mode has players going through opposing castles in order to acquire loot, said loot can be used in Defence Mode to enhance your own castle.
It’s here where players can show their flair and imagination. Castles can be developed from scratch, with no set way to expand.
Players then use their acquired loot to fill their castles with various monsters and traps to deter players.
You’d be forgiven for thinking the game is a title aimed at children, due to the colourfully animated characters and quirky environments.
You’d be wrong though.
Mighty Quest has a very tongue-in cheek nature, which older gamers will appreciate. It is by no means a kid’s game, more so a title that caters to fans young and old.
Mighty Quest is currently in Beta, so if it’s something that tickles your fancy, head on over to Ubisoft and pick it up.
