The SAGA Online World is a traditional fantasy setting with characters like elves, orcs, dragons, dwarves and giants. In the free massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game, players create their own kingdom, battle or negotiate with each other and can cooperatively complete quests with friends in order to earn experience and loot. The free to play MMORTS SAGA Online offers, among other things, over 1000 quests as well as six fractions, each with its own unique units and individual playing style. SAGA Online features many of the success factors of massively multiplayer online games: thus there are guilds, raids, a live auction house for exchanging cards, equipment upgrades, collaborative team quests, looting of treasures and so on. This combines the game with real-time strategy features, like city planning, resource management and warfare. At the same time, SAGA Online, unlike many other real-time strategy games, is set in a persistent world that never rests– not even when the player logs off.
