The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot: Ubisoft unveils first free-to-play RPG game

Thursday, 6th September 2012 09:29 GMT By Dave Cook

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot has been revealed by Ubisoft. It’s the publisher first free-to-play title, and comes after the company fought tooth and nail to combat a wave of DRM and piracy issues. This could be the solution it’s looking for.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and it’s an asynchronous – there’s that term again – dungeon crawler that sees players making their own castles complete with quests, loot and end bosses.

You can test your Facebook friends by inviting them over to your castle, then laugh as your hordes of beast slaughter them. You can also venture into castles made by your mates, earn gear, collect loot and level up as you progress.

As you level up, you will unlock tougher enemies and building tiles for your own castle, which is actually a neat idea. So essentially your castle levels up as you do.

More as we get it, but first, here’s some screens:

Thanks Joystiq.

    I don’t want to be negative by default, but “The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot” sounds extremely try-hard.

    A little too forced to be funny or ‘cool’.

    That said, the game could be great.

    I’m pretty sure this isn’t Ubisoft’s first F2P game. Ghost Recon Online is F2P and is already out.

    I am really not impressed by any of the f2p games shown by ubisoft.I wont pay anything forubi f2p games but i will play them.Its really concerning to see where or gaming industry is going.All of them are trying to make f2p mmos.I think we wont see games like fallout,skyrim,tomb raider,dishonoured,crysis etc in future.It seems that crytek,ea and ubisoft are going to abandon making sp titles altogether in near future:(
