Wakfu Heads to Launch

Posted Wed, Feb 29, 2012 by Martuk

Wakfu wanted a unique launch date and it doesn’t get much more unique than a leap year day. The extension of the Dofus universe set out on its journey to launch today complete with a subscription option. Don’t worry, the other option is still free. According to the launch press release, new content updates are already being worked on that will add new classes, conquerable islands that focus on PvP, new dungeons and unlockable PvE content.

Wakfu is now available on PC, Linux and Mac. Visit the official Wakfu website to learn more and check out the new launch trailer after the break.

I'm quite taken with this game! It mixes a Friday night complex board game with buddies and a Saturday morning cartoon to make a great place to hang out. Some of the writing would be a little funnier with a bigger translation budget. There are a few more issues that I came across while in Beta. But, on the whole, Wakfu provides me with plenty of depth, plenty of cartoon like charm, and plenty of friendly competition with your above average competence-level gamer. What more could you want at this price?


Finally, we can stand by and analyze our party members' complete ineptitude as they act in this turn-based F2P MMORPG by Ankama and Square Enix!
