Wakfu Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ten Ton Hammer recently posted a new preview of the upcoming Wakfu, a new tactical MMO from Ankama. Taking place in the same world of the flash based Dofus, although far in the future from the events of the original game, Wakfu will feature a cartoon based visual style and an environment which responds to player actions.

Taking on opponents in Wakfu is an experience I've never before seen in an MMOG, as it is entirely turn-based. Although many other MMOGs have a round-based combat system, they uniformly obscure it with layers of complexity and a timer that goes by so quickly that you barely notice its passing. This is not the case at all in Wakfu, where you are given an almost infinite amount of time in which to plan your strategies, and act. However, if you do manage to learn your abilities well and execute your commands swiftly, you will be rewarded! The timer on the right shows how much you will fill the bar on the far right, and filling the bar on the far right will unlock an extra bonus. The longer you take on a turn, the less the bar fills.

This balancing act of strategy and speed strikes a very rewarding balance in solo play. I'm unsure how it stacks up in group situations, as I have yet to experience the multiplayer aspect of combat in Wakfu.
