THIRST OF NIGHT is the latest strategy MMO from game
developer and publisher Kabam. It’s their first to feature vampires as the
protagonist race, and the new look definitely gives the title a more overt horror
atmosphere than Kabam is used to.
THIRST OF NIGHT is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a
deadly explosion has triggered volcano eruptions all around the planet. This
great catastrophe has burnt most of humankind alive and left a permanent ash
cloud in the sky that almost entirely blots out the sun. With this new
environment comes a new dominant species: vampires. No longer forced into
hiding from the human and sun threats, vampires now rule the planet, and it
will be your job to build up a new vampire civilization in this world in ruin.
Completing storyline missions can be a blast, and it's always nice to get a
little more information on the vampire and human war.
You'll build a city including the necessary factories,
homes, training grounds and other important structures necessary to keep your
city running at its full potential, and to continue the proper growth of your
civilization. Helping you complete tasks will be a vampire general you hire when
you first load the game. The general acts as an advisor giving you missions and
subsequent rewards for completing said missions. Of course, generals also help
your vampire army in combat by giving out statistical boosts whenever you
attempt to take over new territories.
Your primary tasks in the game include building and
upgrading new buildings, researching new technologies, training troops and
fighting and taking over new territories in the wild for statistical boosts to
your city's production rates. If this doesn't offer you enough tasks to stay
busy, you can try your luck at mini games like the card matching “Lilith’s
Luck.” Time cycles can be purchased to shorten the amount of time needed to
complete tasks, and a helpful chat box is also available to talk with other
players on the server (just for fun, or to help find and join an alliance that
will give you even more free benefits). There's always something new to do in
THIRST OF NIGHT, so boredom is almost nonexistent.
Graphically speaking, THIRST OF NIGHT looks just as nice as
most other MMOs of today. The game's darker environments mesh well with its
themes, as these vampires aren't friendly towards human survivors. Meanwhile, the
soundtrack goes a long way in presenting a futuristic, horrific tone as well. And
THIRST’s sophisticated menus will help you keep track of everything happening
within your civilization at all times.
If you're a fan of strategy, you should definitely check out
THIRST OF NIGHT. And since it’s currently one of the most entertaining free to
play social games, there’s really no reason to miss out.
THIRST OF NIGHT is free to play with no required download,
and it can be played only on PC over Google+ or from the official https://www.kabam.com/thirst-of-night/
