What can you expect with Tower of Fantasy?

Play with friends!

Tower of Fantasy is an open world live service RPG, with a selection of unique characters packing their own unique weapon you can unlock and play as. While it’s playable solo, you can team up with other players and take on monsters found across the world. If you’ve played Genshin Impact, you’re getting something similar here. A live service experience where character-based combat is at its core.

But there are some stark differences! For one, there’s an emphasis on character customisation in Tower of Fantasy. One of the first things you’ll do is create your own protagonist, picking out their hair style, eyes, clothes etc. This means you can head in with a character that suits you, rather than making due with the same protagonist as everyone else.

The world itself is a sci-fi one, featuring six regions each with their own futuristic aesthetic that you’ll be able to explore. While heading off into the wilderness, mounts will allow you to get around a tad faster. Why walk when you can jump into your own sci-fi car, or onto a robot horse?
