Riot Games and Blizzard veterans unveil Palia – MMO inspired by Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing
Palia is the debut game of Singularity 6, founded by veterans Riot Games, Blizzard Entertainment and Zynga in 2018. The developers promise that Palia will provide a gaming experience similar to Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing, but with an open world scale of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Players in Palia will take on the role of humans – representatives of a legendary race that disappeared thousands of years ago at the height of its greatness. The action will take place in an unusual village located on the southern coast of the land of Palia, inhabited by elves. In it, according to the plot, the main characters awaken, who have to find out what happened in the past.
Players will be able to complete story quests, build houses and engage in various hobbies, ranging from fishing and gardening to catching bugs, while pumping their skills. It will be possible to fight in the game, but this is not necessary.
The MMO will feature a flexible character editor, a large selection of clothing, and over 1,000 home furnishings.
Palia will offer players a traditional MMO set of social options, including guilds that you can join to complete group missions.
Players will be allowed to build romantic relationships with NPCs.
Palia can be played alone, the developers noted. However, she will be fully revealed in the company of a few friends.
Pre-alpha testing of Palia will begin in the summer of 2021 on PC. You can send a request to participate in it on the game website.
